The PEER report sets the record straight–the livestock is ruining the range.
Geothermal and other extractive industries are also profiting off the Twin Peaks range but BLM avoids mentioning this.
Despite the BLM spin that all the Twin Peaks horses are adopted into good homes, we observed what was going on during our visit. Many wild horses from the Twin Peaks roundup were sold. They fetch a lot of money when a kill-buyer picks them up for cheap ($25) at BLM and flips them to slaughter. Pictured above are some of the American wild horses who were rounded up–lost their families, lost their home on the range and were “sold”.
