Congress lets down our wild horses – Roundups to resume in JulyApril 21, 2011
Wild Horses – Mica and I touch for the first timeApril 22, 2011
Wyoming has the second most wild horses in the country, after Nevada. Now the Wyoming horses are under fire again from the BLM.
In October and November of last year, over 2100 wild horses were removed from the Adobe Town and Salt Wells Herd areas in Wyoming. Last month the BLM announced plans to remove 600 more horses from the Red Desert in 5 HMAs. Now the Rock Springs, Wyoming BLM Field office announced that they plan to remove yet another 696 horses from the White Mountain and Little Colorado HMAs in July of this year. This is very early to hold a roundup in Wyoming – this is still foaling season, it will be very hot and dry, and running the pregnant mares and newborn foals as well as foals less than 3 months old with a helicopter guarantees injuries to the horses. Please comment here and make your opinion heard about this cruel and needless roundup: http://org2.democracyinaction.org/o/6931/p/dia/action/public/?action_KEY=6498
