Horse Sense


Subject:
Mammals , Horses & Ponies

Description:
This 2006 article presents that thesis that "[t]o Americans, the image of mustangs pounding across the range is a potent symbol of the Wild West. But it's a myth that harms wildlife and wreaks ecological havoc." Topics include need for population control, and whether these "feral equids" are "closely related to animals unleashed by the conquistadores" or are descended from recently escaped livestock. Also includes reader reactions and a response by the author.
