Hopefully the good people of Cedervill will not allow the BLM to use its normal tactics--its not a "gather" its not a "roundup" the tactics used amount to animal cruelty. Things that no self respecting rancher or horseman would do to a horse. Chasing the young and old over miles with a helicoptor with no regard to the limits of flesh and blood is cruelty--view it as such and demand humane methods of capture. Large traps baited with feed and water work well--they just take more time then the BLM and the Catoors are willing to spend.

Having been born and raised most of my life in Cedarville and have cowboyed alot around the great basin . I do not believe it is cruelty having helped gather wild horses and witnessed them being gathered we brought them here and let them get out of control. Most of these horses are no good, many are so inbred from the government laws not letting anyone manage them like livestock that it is time to start over and look at it as what they are livestock. In the old days ranchers would cull out all the worthless stock and put a good stud in with them and manage it like he would his cattle, yes some did abuse this but most did not and you can still see the decendents of those horses in some areas. P.E.T.A. has no true idea what it takes to manage anything let alone them selves, if they did they would realise that if managed right more people would purchase them, just for conformation and sure footedness in rough terrain, but as it stands now most are so inbred that they are no good to use for anything and that is are fault, it is time all of used a little common sense and fixed the problem with out any bureaucracy and activists getting in the and do the right thing manage the livestock that we brought here and let get out of control. There are alot of good cowboys that would gladly take care of them and do it right not some government official who sits in an office management starts on the range not in an office.

These horses are imported and have no place on our public lands.I say we shoot them and rid this place of them for ever.

I say Americans should kill anyone that harms any horse wild or not. People that eat horses should be crucified upside down with their throats slit.
