KBR Wild Horse and Burro News
Mr. Lamm: I want to thank you for your e-mail letter to the Secretary, on which you copied me. You make a compelling argument for the need for the Bureau to work in effective partnership with the many people and groups that support the wild horse and burro program and our efforts to make sure that we take care of the wild herds, their habitat on the rangelands, and the animals that we have to remove from the range. I would like to follow up on your suggestion that the Bureau and the groups devoted to caring for the wild horses and burros could work together more effectively toward our shared goals. I am confident you are correct. What I need at this point is to discuss with some specificity the particular joint efforts that would be most effective in effecting a balanced approach to the business of dealing with older, "unadoptable" horses through the formation of public-private partnerships. I hope you will share your best ideas with us. We are committed to working jointly with the concerned members of the public; we realize that meeting the needs of the horses and burros will require a shared effort spanning the public-private division. I'll look forward to hearing back from you and having a chance to consider together the next steps that would be most effective in improving the care afforded these animals and restoring public confidence in the Bureau's administration of the WH&B Program. Thanks again for opening the dialogue. Let's work together towards some positive solutions. Sincerely, Maitland Sharpe
