Move the feral horses to North Carolina.
To me the elephant in the room is the age-old question: are these "wild"
horses feral animals? You know, descendants of domestic animals who have
escaped captivity and are therefore encroaching upon the grazing lands of native
wild animals. If they are feral they don't belong on the range
where the native "deer and antelope play" and graze. If they are native
to the environment, i.e., demonstrably having existed prior to 1492, when old
Columbus sailed the ocean blue, then they should be managed to keep numbers in
check to balance the lack of natural predators, and stay on the range - their
natural habitat.To let them breed and herd size grow unchecked to
the point where they or other species starve is not humane management. Likewise
to round up hundreds of unadoptable animals and keep them in pens for who knows
how long, at taxpayer expense with no solution is foolish and cruel to the
animals.There is a market for their meat and hides. If they can be
humanely slaughtered, as cattle, sheep, hogs, and who knows what else that may
be the solution, like it or not.
There are no Real Wild Horses anymore -- Groups would like to believe that but
is is not true.
