As a conservative I disagree with the Republican rationale depicted in this article. The passage of this bill provides more viable options for managing the 1971 Wild Horse and Burro Act which will better utilize public and historic grazing lands that can accommodate viable herds. Managing them locally by non profits/agency partnerships could further save as well as stimulate the local tourist economy. Maintaining our Heritage Herds has not /will not cost the American Public even a fraction of the cost of habitat and copious litigation for endangered species.
The huge expense has been in removal, feed lots, and adoption. This cost could be drastically reduced.
Please contact your local Board of Supervisors and state legislators to encourage cooperation at all levels.
