What are private cattle ranchers doing profiting off OUR public land? Keep the horses ~ get rid of the cattle!!

Wild horses aren't free - Failure to enforce a 1971 law endangers the mustangs it was supposed to protect
2008, Los Angeles Times
June 2 - Under [the] law, horses are to be "considered in areas where presently found as an integral part of the system of public lands." Their management falls to agencies inside the Department of the Interior, primarily the Bureau of Land Management, which culls the herds based on the land's grazing capacity and what's required to sustain the wild horse population. But the government also balances the needs of horses against other uses of the range -- and that means corporate cattle ranching. Today, instead of being protected, mustangs are in danger of being "managed" out of existence.
