this is actually exactly right... the horses (which are NOT indigenous to
North America by the way) contribute to severe overgrazing... at least if
the BLM gives a grazing permit to a rancher they have some recourse if the
rancher isn't doing what he is supposed to be doing.  The statutes that the
BLM operates under mandate sustained yield for multiple use-- if theses
horses are creating unsustainable conditions then it is up to the BLM to do
something about it.  They are also worried about bucellosis transmission.  I
realize this is an emotional issue for a lot of people but this is on
balance a good thing for BLM lands along the CDT.
