Who is anti-horsie?

From time to time there are panics and people begin killing animals like bears and sharks in response to attacks on humans.  I can at least understand that.  I just really can’t wrap my head around this (from the AP):

The Bureau of Land Management approved the removal of 2,500 wild horses from the range near Reno as opposition grows to what would be one of the largest mustang roundups in Nevada in recent years. A federal judge in Washington is to hear arguments Wednesday in a lawsuit filed to block the roundup planned for later this month. The roundup is part of the bureau’s overall strategy to remove thousands of mustangs from public lands around the West. Advocates for the horses say the roundup violates the Wild Free Roaming Horse and Burro Act, which Congress passed in 1971.

Wouldn’t they be better off using that time and energy cleaning up garbage…or really anything besides horsie catchin’?
