westhorse, there are over 7 MILLION privately owned cattle and millions of privately owned sheep on the public lands that were granted to wild horses and burros by law. Over 20M acres have been taken away from the wild horses and burros.
Ecologists estimate there are less than 20k free roaming wild horses and burros remaining. Even if there were 37k as the BLM states, how is that over populated compared to millions and millions of livestock? The GAO study has already proven that the livestock are decimating the ranges, particularly riparian areas, not the horses.
To expect intelligent individuals to believe the few thousand horses are doing more damage than millions of livestock is absolutely ridiculous. That must be why the anti-horse folks always fail to mention or address the millions of livestock that have taken over the ranges.
