Straight from the Horse's Heart

While Randy Helm, who is with the Arizona Dept. of Corrections, thinks that having hardened criminals in prison train formerly wild horses is “…one of those win-wins, the horses are getting good homes, and you are giving the inmates something to do,” this is not a win-win for the wild horses.  These wild horses were taken from their family bands and taken off of their (supposedly) federally protected Herd Management Areas.  About the only “win” is that wild horses weren’t sent to slaughter, but how many have been?  This is lipstick on a pig.  The BLM needs to be held with its feet to the fire for its false population estimates.  –  Debbie
