An “unadoptable” horse the Bureau says, “is typically at least 5 years old, making them less attractive for purchase or adoption. The bureau hasin off-range pastures and corrals.

In a statement The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS)  said: “The decision of the BLM advisory board to recommend the destruction of the 45, 000 wild horses currently in holding facilities is a complete abdication of responsibility for their care.

The HSUS is calling for alternative fertility control programs to slow down population growth.
