    These horses are part of our national heritage. Please let them remain free. Chasing horses, mares and their foals with helicopters as part of a "roundup" is exceedingly cruel- so many have suffered and as a result of your policies. I don't understand why you are trying so hard to exterminate them. Perhaps the cattle industry lobby has too great an influence on you.

    The United States of America has a living symbol of its freedom and strenght  in the free roaming wild horse and burro,

    rounding up and keeping in captivity these noble animals, gifts from God to the USA is wrong,

    letting the ones in captivity back to freedom is right,letting the ones that are free keep their freedom.

    there are so many bad negative things going on in the world,
    letting the wild horses and burro live free and undisturbed gives a positive example and lesson to the whole world,
    may the USA show the way to the world

    Seems to me the BLM is just trying to look busy enough to justify their existence. The ranchers would be a whole hell of a lot less inclined to run cattle on public land if they had to pick up the tab for the roundups! Most tax payers are sick to death of propping up these bloated, self serving, inhumane departments. Leave well enough alone, make hay drops and build water stations with our tax monies...
