    BLM’s unscientific “Acceptable” Administration Degree (AML) stands in the way in which of humane options to roundups. On this rigged “AML” system, any animal over BLM’s arbitrary quota is taken into account “overpopulation.”  The one approach to handle that is to cut back livestock grazing and enhance the variety of burros on the vary.
