Should Wild Horse Slaughter be Outlawed?

VOTE "YES"! There's a poll up-- should unwanted wild horses be slaughtered?

I don't agree with the wording of the poll, however. "Unwanted"? These are wild horses being removed off our public land so private cattle can graze.... it's not like there is an overpopulation (in 70% of the herds, the BLM has 'appropriate management levels' too small to ensure the horse's survival, and livestock graze 70% of the land, while horses eat 5%.)
I wish they would include some facts in there... for all you know, there could be a million wild horses, they poll doesn't say that there are only about 32,000 left, 98% less than in the 1900's.

Anyway, at least they are doing a poll on it!! Go vote 'yes' now!
