The BLM finally released their Modified Decision Record for the White Mountain and Little Colorado Herds. There will be no spaying of mares, but only 177 gelded stallions will be returned, divided between both areas. The plan is to keep “minimally reproducing herds.”
Here is the Press Release from the BLM:
At the Statewide Hearing for the Wyoming roundups planned this summer which happened last night, BLM representatives made it clear that although they will not be spaying mares in these two herds, the spaying of mares option will not go away for future roundups of other Wyoming herds. In other words, they are throwing a bone this time, but their real plan is to sterilize all of the Wyoming herds, and include spaying of mares along with castration of stallions as the method.
This is serious. This is the plan for the future for all wild horse herds. We must stop it, or there will be no herds of wild horses left very soon – just geldings.
Please contact your Senators and Congressmen.
The American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign has posted a link where you can send a letter to the President to protest this new and horrific BLM policy:
