BREAKING NEWS: The federal government would kill 44,000 wild horses and 1,000 wild burros on federal land under a recommendation from the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) National Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Board.
After being taken off the range by the BLM, the horses and burros are being kept in coops. The Agency permits them to be embraced and occasionally rounds them up. Those who cannot be embraced are kept in coops in the desert.
The advisory board advocated that the BLM is to euthanize. The board which as no real power, advocated euthanasia in what it called overcrowded corrals under horrible conditions where they are being kept.
Too Many Horses
This recommendation was delivered by the board after a suggestion for usage of birth control drug was turned down previously. McDonnell considers that the strategy was unworkable one.
Wild horses and burros are a significant and issue on the uprise in the West. The BLM has been attempting to command herds that damage ranchers’ grazing lands by letting them be embraced and rounding up the horses. But the BLM still says that there are not enough folks to engage on this.
Euthanasia may not be legal way to sort out things, however the BLM is barred by national law, selling them to slaughter houses or killing wild horses.
There are around 67,027 wild horses and burros in the US.
