  • According to wildlife ecologist Craig Downer , wild horses are flight animals that exist in family bands, ranging widely from diverse riparian areas, where they drink before moving on to forage in areas sometimes as many as 15 miles away, avoiding precisely the trampling that ranchers say causes so much damage in sensitive areas. (
  • Most if not all proponents of wild horses can agree that the U.S. Bureau of Land Management's approach to managing public lands-with its primary emphasis on catering to the cattle and sheep ranchers-is detrimental to the survival of wild horses. (
  • Tens of thousands of horses have been removed from public lands in recent years to appease ranchers, with many horses being killed in the process. (
  • The Bureau of Land Management's (BLM) claim that there are excess wild horses ignores science and instead represents its resentment of wild horses because it is wedding to corporate ranchers, whose cattle and sheep are responsible for range degradation. (
