    This is the passage from the above:

    and the U.S. Bureau of Land Management
    unveiled a plan to kill or relocate 25,000 highly
    reproductive wild mustangs in Nevada to avoid a famine
    that could be caused by their swelling numbers.

    I wonder if the government has continued to honor this agreement — (the “Conquistador” in this isn’t the TCF Conquistador — it’s another one in California.)

      Once upon a time I belonged to the Sierra Club, what I found was a bunch of snobs on bicycles preaching their way is the best and only way. We all know there is no perfect solution for the “wild horse problem” and we can’t have and don’t want horses running all over the continent willy-nilly. What I wish our opponents would understand is that it is RIDICULOUS to keep rounding up more horses until something humane is done with the ones already penned up. Give the experts time to come up with a long term solution. If horse numbers need to be reduced in a specific HMAs address it one herd at a time. Am I that wrong?
