Wild horses should be left alone, not slaughtered
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.

Wild horses graze next to the Rio Grande near Presidio, Texas, last Tuesday.
