This photo by Michael Francis shows the horrifying reality of what our nations’ wild horse program has become. The National Academy of Science recently released a report of its 2-year investigation overseeing the Bureau of Land Management Wild Horse & Burro Program. The headlines read: “National Academy Report Finds Serious Fault with BLM's Wild Horse and Burro Management Program.” There has been very little use of scientific studies behind the current practices of managing the program.
The current policies executed by the BLM need to be totally reformed. The creation of a new group dedicated to wild horses & burros without invested interest or other bias towards livestock, mining, or energy industry is possible.
