The re-introduction of the bighorn into the area would be fine (as they would likely co-exist with burros peacefully, I believe), if it were done for a noble reason. Alas, I disbelieve this to be the case: The initiative is backed up by hunters who view bighorns as a valuable game that can be turned into trophies, while burros living in the given area are denied such a status in their eyes, so they want them out. Because it means one species (burros) getting killed to give space to other species (bighorns) that will also be killed (insanity), it is clear that it will benefit neither of the species but some people's selfish interests only. Thus, whether you look at it from the perspective of burros or from the perspective of bighorns, you must arrive at the same conclusion: It is sure to result in killing. And as such it must be opposed.

'They' won't be satisfied until the burros and mustangs are exterminated, then the lands can either be handed over to 'fat-cat' ranchers or used by gun-toting, trigger-happy morons, ops, sorry hunters, so they can exterminate another 'trophy' What will they kill when everyone has been killed??? Perhaps they could hunt each other!! and do us all a favour.
