There are no wild mustangs. The only wild horses in the world are in Mongolia.
What we have roaming around the US, and apparently Australia are feral horses.
No different than stray cats or dogs.

Apparently they don't know how the BLM works. Mustangs aren't branded and released again. Very sad.
Apparently YOU don't know how the BLM works. Mustangs are branded and released.

They are? Since when? What would be the point in doing that?
Yes, they are branded but not released again.

Thousands penned in
About another 30,000 horses are in holding facilities, where most are made available for adoption. But those deemed too old or otherwise unadoptable are sent to long-term holding facilities to live out their lives — some for 15 to 20 years.
The board will consider the alternatives at its next meeting in September.
Last year about $22 million of the entire horse program's $39 million budget was spent on holding horses in agency pens. Next year the costs are projected to grow to $26 million with an overall budget that is being trimmed to $37 million, Bisson said.
"We have a responsibility to balance the budget, so we are going to have to make some tough choices," Bisson said.
Bonnie Matton, president of the Wild Horse Preservation League, said she wasn't surprised by the agency's

they do release some of the "better quality" stock for enhancing the genetics of the herds however I don't believe they are branded before being released back. I've never seen a mustang on the range with a brand... i'll have to ask about that because, to my knowledge, they don't "tag and release" mustangs.

Ken McNabb had a great program about American Mustangs last year, where he explained how the Mustangs live in small pockets of land, NOT in ranges from Mexico to Canada, like most people believe, with little fodder and often, no water. They exist many times bc of the kindness of ranchers who provide a water source and even throw out hay for them. Their lives are limited and often pitiful.
I've suggested this before, on other sites, but I'll say it again, and see if this solution might spark an interest in discussion and evolving it.
MY solution is to license "Mustang Breeders." These horse breeders would be responsible for small herds kept on their land. They would brand them, and register them. If you wanted a "mustang" you would purchase through them. We could start pulling stock off of the places where they live--unless a breeder already has them on their land--and perhaps leave them in small, managed populations in State and National Parks that have livestock like bison and pronghorns.
