They're invasive species. Nobody would give a fark if it weren't for the facts that they're cute and over romanticized.

Equines evolved in NA.  They then spread to the Old World.  They may not have been in NA for a few million years, but they are not invasive like, say, a cane toad in Australia is.

Just like it would totally make sense to let some African elephants loose, because we used to have mammoths. Except they only died out a few thousand years ago.

The ecosystem shifted significantly in those millions of years. There are contemporary native species that are harmed by the presence of introduced horses and burros.

Sadly, that was my first thought too, since it would be a waste to just let them go to a landfill, etc.

will that be the meat in those food boxes ivanka is making?

If they do it right they could make few bucks in the dog food and gels markets.....

Could somebody tell the BLM about the  cattle destructively overgrazing public lands in Nevada? There are a lot of hungry puppies that could use the food.

They'd kill you and your whole family if given the chance.

Am I the only one unable to find anything about slaughter in TFA?

They are not wild. They are descendents of domesticated animals that have returned to the wild. Therefore they are feral. Like those cats that kill the birds.

It would only probably cost half a million if they weren't horses. Shooting is a lot cheaper than relocating.

You need to be care about threatening the kitties; I got death threats and verbal whippings when I discussed my dislike of feral cats.

They can also be turned into leather jackets, and hot hide glue. More useful items in my book than living horses. If so many Americans weren't so irrationally attached to the pieces of shiat, we could eat them, too. Especially the wild ones, since there's little risk that veterinarians have drugged them to the eyeballs with gawd knows what.

Here's a better idea.

Slaughter and remove 220,000 Branch Covideans and Donald Dildonians from US Public Lands, where they have become a plague and a menace to the sustainable environment, the sustainable economy, and liberal, democratic, tolerant, and generous people of all kinds.

Libert-Aryans are an invasive species like kudzo and the zebra mussel. They destroy sustainability and sanity wherever they infest the public lands and virtual spaces. Take a lesson from March of the Morons and fire them into the Sun under the pretext of giving them free land, great wealth and their own peculiar idea of freedom in the Space Colonies of Venus.

I googled burro as I was curious as to what the word meant. Got too much information back

Well I now know how burros are made.

$4,545.45 per horse seems high. I bet if they just offered $1000 a head and issued licenses they could cut that price down and solve the problem in about 20 days. Of course we'd also solve every cow, deer, buffalo, VW bus, rock, tree, drifter, and everything else that walks, crawls or flies in the process.

Never mind.
 
2020-05-18 6:00:40 PM  
Didn't we recently stop the exportation of these horses to countries willing to pay for them, because we were outraged they would be turned into food?

Irascible: If they do it right they could make few bucks in the dog food and gels markets.....


It will be contracted out. Taxpayers will pay to get rid of them and the guy who wins the contract will make mroe money on selling them t whoever for meat. Entrepreneurs in action.
 
2020-05-18 6:01:47 PM  
Remove them and allow their slaughter.  Horse meat is delicious.  We need to get over this ridiculous cultural taboo.

Technically they are a reintroduced species. Horses evolved here.

It's acceptable to eat horse meat in many cultures.The federal ban is purely for sentimental and romantic reasons. Horse/burro overpopulation is terrible for the environment. Let's open it up again.

That;s just what the puppies want you to think. "You just ate ten minutes ago" is not considered a valid reason not to feed them.

yes millions of years ago.  The ecosystem substantially changed in that period of time.  They are invasive.

Did the species of horse that is domesticated horse evolve here?  Or is that reintroducing three toed tree sloths to the american south west because we used to have sloths roaming the south west.
