Please post comments on these articles, the media isn’t getting it right today!
Extinction Countdown from Scientific American “Does the US Do a Good Job Managing Wild Horses? Yea or Neigh?” — your comments needed!
“Mustang Redemption” from Mother Jones Magazine, this is not a well-researched piece -author writes “they’ll breed like rabbits fed Viagra” – wild horse herds do not double in size every 4 years, 10% growth is a more realistic average but herds vary. A call needs to be made for a balanced article worthy of this magazine, this article falls short.
Comments needed on the misinformation here too- both horses and cattle eat about the same and cattle do far more damage! http://www.lahontanvalleynews.com/article/20100126/NEWS/100129896/1055&ParentProfile=1045
Please vote for a moratorium on roundups here — STOP cruel BLM roundups of WILD HORSES and Burros
Reminders: *Eagle roundup comments due 1/27, *Antelope Roundup scoping comments due 1/27 (both huge Nevada roundups) + Phoenix and Tucson protests on Saturday, January 30th!!
