As It Is … ”Horse Roundup Amid Drought Create Debate”.
The American state conducts large helicopter roundup to remove horses in public land. The roundups are conducted to ensure that the population of wild horses on public land is maintained at a level that is consisted with the lands capacity to support them. Herds, or group of horses can double in size every four years, when population grow too high, they destroy soil.
