Montgomery Pass Wild Horses Migrating Westward?

A report posted this morning by the San Francisco Chronicle indicates they’re taking up residence near Mono Lake, noting that in other western states, the herds have toppled pristine lands, commandeered forage for livestock and pose hazards to humans.

The story is no different here.

Their origin is thought to be the Montgomery Pass WHT/HMA.

The Western Watersheds map shows the arrangement.

The photos show few if any foals.

The bad news is that advocates with the Campaign Against America’s Wild Horses are already eyeing the animals.

A representative stated “They have the same status as the bald eagle.  The fact that we would round them up with helicopters is just inhumane.”

The implication, of course, is that they’re ready to sink their claws into the herd and ruin it with the Montana Solution.
