Imagine what COULD HAVE BEEN! With that $462 MILLION, This “round-up” takes fat, happy, free wild horses, who were not bothering anybody,AND eating for free on the public lands, GIVEN to THEM and r brutaly captured, warehoused,and 99% SLAUGHTERED ! for the amount of$462 MILLION! This despite millions of taxpayers requesting, protesting it to STOP They r ignored !! Bush signed this into action WITHOUT DUE PROCESS !, no vote of the people OR congress- This is taxation without representation , this is privitation use of UNTRAINED -INHUMANE-CONTRACTORS for profit !
