"Equus spread across the Bering Strait from America to Asia. Primitive man, starting to evolve in Asia, followed horse herds back across the Bering Strait into America, some staying to become the first Americans. When the glaciers retreated about ten thousand years ago, the land bridges between what is now Alaska and Asia disappeared. Soon after that the horse became extinct in North America. No one knows why. They were later re-introduced to the continent by Spanish explorers, and became the progenitors of the Mustang." Source

Sooooo... horses went extinct in the Americas about 12,000 years ago... about the same time that humans arrived in the Americas. Pretty suspicious.

There are people saying wild horses should be gotten rid of in the Americas because they are not native.

Maybe we have a good argument here to return the continent to its rightful inhabitants.
