The herd contained around 80 horses in 2016, when the safe, proven and reversible darting program was shut off.
If it was growing at a rate of 15% per year, the population should be about 185 now.
The herd size was 78 as of December 9, according to the Assateague Island Alliance, no change from October 5.
Does that mean the growth calculation is wrong?
No, it means the advocates are full of crap.
Why are you still giving them money?
