    Once again BLM is playing with numbers and now we must get comments in again and where is the EA? Who knows when this roundup will actually take place? mar

    The BLM must stop this roundup of the wild horses. There must be a place for these magnificent animals and it is our duty to protect them. How can anyone believe that killing these animals is in the best interest of all of us.

    Stop the roundups and killings, now!
