The Wyoming File is reporting that the BLM is proceeding with a radio collar study on wild mares in the Adobe Town Herd Management Area in Wyoming.
AWHPC opposed this research on humanitarian and scientific grounds. Originally proposed as a study of the migratory patterns of wild horses in the Red Desert Complex, the project has now been hijacked for political purposes that include support for eradication of wild horses from the Adobe Town Herd Management Area.
Over 7,200 citizens submitted comments on the Environmental Assessment for this project, calling on the BLM to cancel this biased and potentially dangerous research project. These citizens were ignored. The federal gravy train rolls on, with more federal handouts to public lands ranchers and the range scientists that defend their industry.
