We call them horse haters because they really are. They take smirking pictures with dead wild horses and send it to each other. They will do and say anything to get rid of them.
The false claims wild horse haters fabricate to suit their agenda are so outrageous that you wonder if they’ve ever been to the Salt River? This is a quote straight from the lawsuit against the Salt River wild horses:
“With horses eating all the riparian tree saplings, these trees can’t grow into the mature cottonwoods that desert nesting bald eagles need. Yuma clapper rails also need the area to recover, but without the riparian vegetation, the situation is becoming increasingly hopeless.”
– Charles Babbitt, conservation chair of the Maricopa Audubon society.
Ah yes, the poor birds, there are just no mature cottonwoods, no young ones either. The horses are eating them all. (Actually horses don’t like the taste of cottonwood trees, that’s why they don’t eat them, they do eat mesquite leaves and beans however, which benefits the environment)
Just in case you were starting to believe any of these lies, we hope this photographical evidence clears it up for everyone.
- Young as well as old cottonwood trees triumphantly stand out at Goldfield. Right there to make the Center for Biological Diversity look like the fabricators of facts they really are. Anyone can come see.
- If one says we need to restore things to the way they were at the Salt River, this is what you would get. This is what the lower Salt River looked like in the 60’s and 70’s. It looks a lot more abundant now than it did then. So the Tonto National Forest didn’t do such a bad job after all?
Thank you to everyone sending in pictures of evidence. May the truth prevail. SRWHMG.
