How could this ranch capture horses on federal property? Was no one checking to see how the horses were being treated? This is really sick!

Jason Meduna and wife Anissa own and operate the 3-Strikes Ranch in Alliance, Nebraska. The didn't capture the horses. They purchase initially 200 horses from the BLM. Over (time frame about 2 years) They took in an estimated 140 horses, which would bring the total number up to 338 horses, which was noted as the # of horses on their website in January 200. As the horses have bee evaluated, received individual med care, they have determined that 47 of the horses are still stallions. While the authorities can only confirm positively 74 carcasses of horses that have died....repoorts stating that "bones are scattered everywhere" out on the range, 204 horses were removed from the ranch and taken to the fairgrounds for care and "temp. housing". This would leave the numbers at 134 horses that actually have perished.
This is the organization that is handling this case:

This is the dedicated website listing the horses:

I hope that clears that up.

Thank You for the clarification. I assumed by the Quoute taken from KTIV-TV "The ranch boards and trains mustangs captured on federal property" that they were on federal grounds. However, the statements from Ch 9 Colorado news say "He adopts wild horses from the Bureau of Land Management. They are horses no one else wants. Meduna says it isn't a case of starvation, but poisoning. He believes his horses are sick because someone poisoned them."
He says he noticed a change back in November, shortly after 9NEWS first visited the ranch.
Also according to news reports trailers full of wild mustangs have been unloaded at his ranch. I find it very odd that the bureau of land management was so lacks in their follow up on these horses. Their lack of concern makes them just as bad as man who starved them.
