Wild horses should be left alone, not slaugh­tered

The Denver Post - - PERSPECTIVE -

Re: “Sav­ing wild horses re­quires culling the herd,” July 30 Krista Kafer col­umn.

Please ed­u­cate your­selves re­gard­ing the plight of wild horses be­fore you print such a col­umn. These horses are not starv­ing, nor do they need to be culled to save them.

The Bureau of Land Man­age­ment would have you be­lieve this be­cause of the money they re­ceive from the cat­tle ranch­ers.

These horses live on pub­lic land and should be left alone. Please do fur­ther re­search and print the truth if you care at all about these beau­ti­ful an­i­mals.

Your colum­nist couldn’t pos­si­bly love horses if she pro­poses the mass killing of sev­eral thou­sand wild horses. Her cav­a­lier at­ti­tude dis­plays a tremen­dous amount of ig­no­rance. Horses are not pro­lific breed­ers. They are not over­pop­u­lat­ing our coun­try, judg­ing by the dwin­dling num­bers thanks to the mis­man­age- ment by the Bureau of Land Man­age­ment.
