    Now if we can get Congress to make the preservation and protection of our wild horses and burros permanent that would be terrific! While I realize it sounds almost impossible why can’t most of the original land of the horses and burros be restored? Let BLM refigure range acreage for cattle around the horses and burros. Then BLM and the government don’t have to worry about managing the animals. Why can’t the healthy horses in BLM holding pens be released back into the wild?

    My point is, since the horses and burros are vital to the ecosystem and a part of our history and heritage, why is the government allowing the continuing destruction of the land by cattle and sheep when they graze on most of the land compared to a fraction of which our wild horses and burros have to compete for? I realize it is greed and power but according to statistics we only get 3% of our beef from the West.

    I have read that BLM is trying to get around this by encouraging adoptions whereas the buyers don’t have to account if they send the horses to slaughter. We need to ban kill buyers. If the animals have their native and natural habitats back, things like overcrowding, over-breeding and overgrazing would not be an answer. Adoptions are great as long as they are monitored and carried out by people who love the animals and can guarantee the horse or burro is going to a good home, not one where it stands a good chance of ending up in the slaughter pipeline
