Target: Neil Kornze, Director of the BLM, 1849 C Street, N.W., Room 5657 Washington, D.C. 20240,
Mr. Kornze: The BLMs job is to protect and manage the wild horses and burros per the Wild Free Roaming Horse and Burro Act of 1971. Instead of utilizing a well regarded method of birth control – your bureau rounds up these” Living Legends of the West” and lets them continue to breed while corralled in locations all over the country. 72 % of your budget is spent on roundups and stockpiling these animals -less then 1 % is spent on fertility control
PZP -Porcine Zona Pellucida vaccine has been effective as a method of birth control with wildlife for many years. Darts are used to deliver the vaccine. The cost is about $20 per vaccine.
Surgery on pregnant mares to abort and sterilize them by removing their ovaries is not humane and certainly not cost
effective. Surely all the public outcry against this “research”method by a bunch of college students MUST TELL YOU SOMETHING!
