    BLM has missed their chance to become authorities on wild horses by kowtowing to the welfare cattle ranchers. They have had since 1971 to study and learn about wild horse behavior and social structure but instead BLM spouts myths and lies about wild horses based on their knowledge of domestic horses. Wild horses are not the same as domestic horses since domestic horses rely on humans to care for them while the wild horses know and understand what it takes to survive in the wild.

    The NAS study found no evidence of an over-population of wild horses. The BLM lies about 40,000 still free . See pop. info from Bob Bauer at American Herds . His latest report gives the high mortality rate of foals and is on R.T. Fitch’s blog. PZP or any fertility control will just help BLM wipe out our wild horses as herds are now not sustainable and genetically viable.
