Who Do YOU Believe about Wild Horses?

Decide whose "facts" you'll believe, before it's too late!
Here are just few of many links you can check out to see what advocates and BLM are saying about the same situations.

BLM's response to "Facts & Myths" about wild horses 

Myth #4:  Since 1971, the BLM has illegally or improperly taken away more than 20 million acres set aside for wild horses and burros (from 53.8 million acres to 31.6 million acres).
Fact:  This claim is false.  No specific amount of acreage was “set aside” for the exclusive use of wild horses and burros under the 1971 Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act. 

False Claim #3:  There are too many wild horses and burros and they are multiplying too fast because they have no real predators or other controls.
As the architects of the Wild Horse & Burro Act of 1971 knew very well, the carrying capacity for wild horses in the herd areas and territories on our public lands is relatively high.

Comments: It breaks my heart to see what's happening to the Mustangs, but what's even more disturbing is how few people care about it. I have an entire blog which I've made out to be a website on wild Mustang history, biology, and information on BLM roundups. So many friends and relative say "oh, that's sad," but they never do anything about it, not even the smallest thing.
