If you subscribe to The Dodo then chances are you are aware of the issues facing America's wild horses and burros and you've most likely read the endless news stories of wild horse round-ups in the West, where thousands of wild horses are removed from the public lands, placed in government holding pens, and imprisoned for crimes they did not commit. The stories are heartbreaking and the cost to tax payers to house and feed over 46,000 wild horses and burros in government holding facilities tops 80 million dollars a year. There are many wild horse advocacy groups who are working tirelessly to stop these horrific round-ups but the question remains what do we do with the large numbers of wild horses and burros living out their lives in holding facilities. Today, it is estimated that there are as many wild equines in these government than there are running free. The West is drying up and the competition for the resources available on public lands is being up divided between big business and the livestock industry, leaving very little for natural habitat that supports all wildlife.
