No youngsters in this band. The mares should be heavily pregnant by now, at least some of them, but the advocates have blocked this essential part of their existence.
With the darting program moving into its fifth year, many of the mares are at risk of sterility and the herd is dying off. That’s how the advocates save wild horses.
Before they got involved, the Virginia Range was carrying at least ten wild horses per thousand acres, ten times higher than the target rate of the bureaucrats and ranchers, who want this outlier erased.
The advocates are eager to comply.
The Nevada Department of Agriculture and the Campaign Against America’s Wild Horses, to whom you provide financial support, are responsible for the destruction.
