BLM's Wild Horses mtg in Boise, Idaho

Hi. I'm looking for updates (a YouTube Live Stream would be great) on what is right now taking place in Boise with BLM and the wild horses and burros' meeting.

I know Wednesday, 10July2019, The Bureau of Land Management's meeting on wild horses and burros will be Streamed LIVE. https://www.blm.gov/press-release/na...-washington-dc

To me, this feels like such a historical turning point in America and the wild horses.

Can't vote. No option for darting with a 30-06 & sending the meat to a food bank.

Riders ask "How?" Horsemen ask "Why?"

50,000 horses and burros in overcrowded holding pens isn't an ideal life but do they deserve to go to the slaughterhouse because of our mismanagement? Meat to food banks? Do humans eat horse meat?

Yes humans eat horse meat. And they have for millenia.

This is real life nature. But in the West, we have very few predators capable of killing and eating the horses, who are "prey". Since we have no business allowing overbreeding and overgrazing to the point we've got 50K horses in pens and increasing numbers, it seems obvious to me we need to introduce "predators" capable of taking down horses and eating them. Man.

If a poor person won't eat free horse meat, he isn't all that poor.

I see no reason horses are more special than elk.
