    I wonder if it will turn out to be kind of like the Bald Eagle killings near Squamish a number of years back?

    How senseless.

    I hope who ever the lowlifes are did this get the book thrown at them.

    I doubt it though.

    Itís a shame to hear about this - Iíve been around the horses up there quite a bit and have some great photos of them.

    As much as Iíd like to jump to conclusions about whodunnit, thereís plenty of stakeholders that want the horses gone. There was an official push to cull/remove them off Mt. Savona years back and it wasnít the FN that were behind that.
    If it cant be done with one shot, it shouldn't be done.

    I wondered about this as well? I know wild horses can wreak havok with homeowners and domestic horses so maybe they caused some shit and someone took things into their own hands?

    I am wondering why there has not been a hunting season for the wild horses? I want to try the horse meat.
    Life is too short and time goes too fast. Hunt, hunt, and hunt....

    It's actually really really good. Similar to Rhino.

    One would think the horse population numbers would steadily increase year by year?
    Are the horses rounded up by any groups?

    Horses eat fair amount per day.

    The ones I know of in the area I’ve heard these 17 were gunned down are/were semi-feral.
    I’ve seen them in all four seasons (i.e., they weren’t rounded up regularly). They roamed around outside a rez/on-rez, so you can imagine their genesis.

    If they are wild then aren’t they actually legal to hunt? Like feral pigs or sheep, etc?
