Well I have just finished watching the first part of the WH&B Advisory Committee Meeting which was basically a re-hash by the GAO of what was in the report. What sticks in my mind most is the presenters statement admitting that the GAO DID NOT address the issue of why the number of acres allotted to the horses is "less then it used to be." Originally, the wild horses had 80 million acres designated for them as rangeland, and they now have only 34 million acres to roam, so what happened to the 46 million acres that have been taken from the wild horses over the years? The BLm and the GAO wants to "skip over" the issue of the the "disappearing 46 million acres" of wild horse rangeland,..and "deferred" the matter into a "non-issue." Now it seems to me that if its "all about" the land and rangeland management, (and it is) the question of the "46 million acres of disappearing rangeland" becomes CRUTIAL to the question of proper managment of the land AS WELL as that of the horses. The FIRST question or consideration that should be addressed by the BLm and the GAO is: Where are the 46 million acres that have been taken away from the wild horse rangelands, and why? Even Ray Charles can see that there wouldnt be any "wild horse over-population" problem if they would just give those (46 million) acres back to the wild horses. Duh.
