BLM Expands Wild Horse and Burro Outplacement Program

The agency has awarded two grants totaling more than $4.7 million to accelerate the placement of excess animals into private care, according to today’s news release.

The Mustang Heritage Foundation received approximately $4 million and Mustang Champions received $750,000.

Use of the term “excess” reinforces the overpopulation narrative.

If ranchers operating in areas identified for wild horses and burros were confined to their base properties, all of the off-range corrals and long-term pastures could be emptied, several times over.

Huge savings can be realized by ending public-lands ranching, not by removing these animals from their lawful homes.
