    Default So I am a proud owner of 33k horses. You too btw!

    “Out in the plains of Wyoming, you own a very large horse operation,” reports our currency man Bill Jenkins, keeping with the theme. “Let me tell you all about it…

    “The Bureau of Land Management, in its infinite wisdom, looked at a herd of wild mustangs and decided that they could no longer fend for themselves or find their own food. That perhaps the food was scarcer than it had been, and this could lead to detrimental results for the horses.

    “And so, employing pickup trucks and helicopters (we’ve come a long way from the Ponderosa), they rounded up these majestic beasts into a huge pen. And when I say huge, I mean the government has currently collected 33,000 horses. Again, in its infinite wisdom, it has provided birth equine control (at no cost to the horses). In addition, it is doing DNA testing to identify the horses individually. (Again, at no cost to the horses.)

    “They are housed and fed at a cost so far this year of $35 million. That’s right -- 35 MILLION dollars, paid by you. But you can go adopt one if you like. You’ve paid for it. All you have to do is get there; I guess you could ride your horse home.”

    Heh, the BLM just announced today the last adoption event. On Sept. 26, it’ll auction off 57 Pryor Mountain horses. Bidding starts at $125 a pop.
    I hope no environmentalist here would defend such a deplorable action. This really touched me. These fucks just misplaced a wild herd, and are selling them for domestication. Not only does that fuck with the the ecosystem, I bet many of these horses will end up as dog food .

    You should try reading stuff laced with less ideology. The only "pen" these horses are in are the united states. The 33,000 horses are spread across ten states.

    A report issued last week by the Government Accountability Office, the investigative arm of Congress, said the BLM needs to consider euthanizing horses or selling them to reduce spiraling costs of keeping them in long-term holding pens.
    But what does the GAO know huh?

    I want them to stop rounding up the horses and selling them off or killing them off. That is all.

    I'd like to try more things, but it's not that easy to diversify in rural England.
