Kill old horses, not people

Dear Editor,

There was an interesting story a few weeks ago about the over population of wild horses in Western states and the BLM’s efforts to limit their numbers because of concerns about the environment and competing wildlife. But now the agency has run into opposition led by Rep. Nick Rahall, D-W.V., who doesn’t want the excess horses put gently to sleep, even the sick and elderly, but rather the BLM should care for them until they pass on to horse heaven from natural causes. And this is to be done at taxpayers’ expense, which ain’t cheap and getting less cheap every day.

Compare the story with that of those who wouldn’t strongly object to putting to sleep many of our sick and elderly seniors who are a “burden to society and our health care system.”

Conclusion: for many, animals are more important than people. And as if this wasn’t bad enough, while we taxpayers are forced to support unwanted, useless horses, we are forced to support abortion mills like Planned Parenthood in order to eliminate less important “unwanted, useless creatures,” whose lives were supposed to be protected by the Constitution, not to mention Natural Law. This country is sadly becoming increasingly barbaric. That last word has a familiar ring to it.
