horses being reintroduced

I am wondering everyone's opinions on this topic as I have been hearing alot about it lately in my area.
Mustangs being reintroduced into the wild after being taken. So there are these " rescues" that have large large open wilderness that are taking in mustangs and re releasing them into the wild. In my opinion I don't really agree with it. I mean I think we should have wild mustangs. I think the population is being controlled fairly well and that taking some horses from the wild is just something that has to be done to manage the population. As long as the animals are taken out of the wild and handled with respect and adopted out I feel there is no harm in it. But a horse that has been takein out of the wild normally at a very young age and raised with humans and taught to be feed a ridden and cared for by humans thrown back into the wild. I just don't understand it will these horses really be happy they were taken most likely as 1 yr olds or younger will they really be happy without a constant food supply and a way to get out of the harsh conditions. I would think it is a better idea to keep them wild in the first place I just don't think every horse out there is up for being wild

Just my thoughts
