    "The U.S. government is coming under fire from animal rights activists amid concerns that almost 45,000 wild horses could be euthanized in an attempt to control their numbers."

    Full article here:


    And the Human Virus continues to kill our planet and everything on it. These are the people in positions of power. This is why I say I don't trust large organizations of people, because this is what happens when you put a bunch of dip sh*ts together and give them the power to make decisions.

    Add wild horse to the list along with :
    Mountain lions
    and a whole host of other species,

    killed by your government, paid for with tax dollars, at the behest of special interests, namely ranching, logging, and mining industries and the cronies of the 'sagebrush rebellion' that's going on.

    Nothing new, just a few more people to add to the list that need a bullet in their head.

    Yeah, these people should be the ones who are euthanized, I agree with that SS. Thanks for posting that Kid. You know, it just takes a little imagination and creative thought process to come up with solutions. Why not get the Humane Society involved to help them come up with solutions along with any other animal rights activists that want to participate in saving these beautiful animals rather than the lazy approach of "just kill them".

    Humane Society very well could be involved, they were influential in getting wolves out of the crosshairs, albeit temporarily.

    Like I said in Yankee's thread, I know where I'll make my last stand when the time comes.

    Devil's advocate here... Population of the herd doubles every four years. No natural predators. Disease and starvation will be the sad results. This happens to deer populations when PETA and other non-informed animal rights activists try to limit deer hunting.

    MAYBE... Introduce wolves into the area? Not kidding with this idea...

    It's the spaniards fault they are on the east coast anyway. I say off to the glue factory so we can build more 7/11's, Chipotle's, and high rise condos. The last thing I want to read about in the paper is a heard of bison stampeding through a mid west Walmart trampling over a type 2 diabetic riding in an electric scooter.

    History of the Chincoteague Ponies


    The Md part of the island uses sterilization, Va part has a yearly pony penning auction. Think chronic wasting disease with whitetail deer(without proper thinning) similar to a small farm bass pond- all fish suffer if left unchecked

    It seems they are "involved" but it doesn't seem to matter what they think? Here's a couple of quotes from the Humane Society in the article I posted:

    The recommendation prompted an angry response from The Humane Society of the United States. “The decision of the BLM advisory board to recommend the destruction of the 45,000 wild horses currently in holding facilities is a complete abdication of responsibility for their care,” said Humane Society Senior Vice President of Programs & Innovations Holly Hazard, in a statement.

    However, the Humane Society has slammed the agency’s efforts. “Over the past 20 years, the BLM has maintained round-up and removal as a primary management strategy for wild horse and burro populations on America’s western rangelands – an effort which has led to a financially unsustainable Wild Horse and Burro Program,” it said, in its statement. “By focusing massive efforts on removing horses and burros from the range, without treating those horses remaining on the range with any form of fertility control to limit population growth, holding facilities throughout the United States have become overburdened.”

    That's a creative solution. Not sure how successful that would be but I think it's better than just going and rounding them all up and killing them.

    It seems that the Humane Society is involved at least in an opinion aspect. From the original article:

    Like many problems in our modern world, this is not a simple problem with simple solutions. One should realize that these animals, unlike many of the critters that SS champions, are not native to the land they occupy. They were introduced by man. That right there throws the ecological balance off. As the article states, they have no natural predators. It is similar to so many introduced species here in Florida, for example Burmese Pythons in the Everglades.

    We, as humans, have a responsibilty to these animals. As the Humane Society suggests, there should be efforts to control the population similar to what some folks do with feral cat colonies. Some form of population control of humans might also be beneficial.

    The bottom line, however, is that whenever we (humans) mess around with nature things get f*cked up.

    Word. We must of been posting at the same time. I addressed the Humane Society being involved as well, my point was that I don't think they are truly involved other than giving their opinion, but they aren't being heard it seems? My suggestion was let them make the decision or at least lead them to the right decision.

    I don't know the deets about this situation DP, but in all the legislation regarding wolves the HS did a lot in terms of litigation and funding.

    I don't either, I just learned of this myself. Just guessing based on the tone of the article that they aren't being heard. I hope they are and if it goes anything like the wolves thing, then they should be successful in finding a better solution.
