Horses stand behind a fence at the BLM Palomino Valley holding facility on Wednesday, June 5, 2013 in Palomino Valley, Nev. A scathing independent scientific review of wild horse roundups in the West concludes the U.S. government should likely instead let nature cull the herds. A 14-member panel assembled by the National Science Academy’s National Research Council, at the request of the Bureau of Land Management, concluded BLM’s removal of nearly 100,000 horses from the Western range over the past decade is probably having the opposite effect of its intention to ease ecological damage and reduce overpopulated herds.
