A BLM news release dated February 6 comes on the heels of a story last week by the Craig Press about Sand Wash Basin.
The agency will invest $625,000 to better manage the wild horse population through increased fertility control and small-scale gathers.
Fixed trap sites will become part of the landscape, a constant reminder that horses are not a priority in the HMA.
Contrary to the announcement, the AML of 363 represents the number of horses allowed by plan, not the carrying capacity of the land.
The carrying capacity is always higher, sometimes much higher, when resources assigned to privately owned livestock are shifted back to the horses.
One thought on “Management Paradigm Shifting at Sand Wash Basin?”
How despicable!! Essentially killing God’s creations.
