Wild horse population is booming, but is re-wilding or slaughter a solution?

Slaughter would be a solution.  Rewilding just creates a bigger problem.  Look at what is happening on public lands, Indian lands, in Australia and at Oostvaardersplassen, a 14,800-acre man-made nature reserve(Slaughter of starving wild horses divides the Netherlands - NBC News).

Even just decent hands with horses in the west, both past and present do not break a horses spirit, but they do have to make a living.  There is nothing wrong with the way this lady does it(as far as I know), but I am sure she has never made aliving from training horses the way she does.  No one would be able to afford to have her train a horse.

Those who want to rewild have lost touch with nature!  Just look what is happening in NSWs Australia, the BLMs wild horses, Oostvaardersplassen, the Navajo Reservation and others.  Rewilding makes it sound like we know what we are doing, and we don’t.  Just call it nature calling the shots.

'It looks like a horse cemetery': Starving brumbies shot dead by authorities in Victoria's Barmah National Park

Some are shooting the starving horses to keep them from dying a long painful death.  Other are attempting to save the starving horses.  One way is helping nature balance an over population of horses.  The other way is ignoring nature and making future problems worse and with more horses starving and suffering.  Those saving the horses are not concerned about the horses, other game or the range,  they are selfishly trying to stop the emotional pain they feel, damn the consequences.

History in Focus: Sand Wash horses a living icon

This isn’t a focus on history.  It is promoting the myths surrounding todays so called wild horses and rewriting history to fit the myths.  In the third paragraph, “they were rounded up, branded, and broken to become saddle horses.”  Next it says, “efforts to trap the wild mustangs were ineffective.”  They called it right the first time.  The old timers were good hand and knew how to gather wild horses, or more accurately free-roaming horses.
