So basically, what this article says is "so sad, too bad", and nothing will be done. It's sickening.

Common sense tells you that rehoming is not always possible - but a humane exit is always possible. A ban against the distribution of horse meat for human or animal consumption would also help.
We have a a lot of wild horses here, but a far worse camel infestation in Australia.
If we used them for meat, then more horses would have a chance.
But with droughts and grazing land becoming more precious, there is no way the horses could just be set free.
I really didn't intend to suggest they be set free - we have annual culling of wild horses here. It's the absolute cruelty to these animals that have never been treated harshly that is so outrageous. For pity's sake, if they have to be put to death, do it kindly. There is no sane reason for their treatment.
I know you agree with me, Jenifer. I'm just howling at the wind, because I'm so upset.
I know, we agree.
The whole thing just sucks.
