How about letting mother nature be the caretaker of these wild horses like it
was forever? Interventions like this usually never work with regard to nature.
Tree huggers need to hug, educate and properly raise their children and be
involved with the many issues of close and extended families rather than messing
up nature issues. How about planting, fertilization, weed controlling and such
in nature instead of intervening? Look into other areas BLM and get out of
The last thing we need is more animals dependent on man for their survival. It's
not natural and it's not good for anyone.
Good to see my tax dollars going for something else... If the horse people want
the horses. Let them pay for them. The biological ramifications of these animals
over running our rangelands needs to be dealt with the same way we deal with
wildlife and livestock. Harvest, harvest, harvest, for human food, dog food and
if you want to go catch one, a permit for that too.
justamacguyI don't see a reduction in expenditure coming from this move.
Non-profit isn't the same as free. My guess is that the federal government will
end up with the bill for a new facility and feed. When they say they are not in
the business of building new federal buildings, it means that they now rent
space (which ultimately costs more). We both agree that selling tags is the
ultimate solution. Just a fun fact: One of Simplot's first business ventures was
raising hogs on wild horse meat.
