Plans call for the initial removal of about 800 mustangs from the Little Owyhee Herd Management Area, then the permanent removal of another 47 horses from the Owyhee Herd Management Area. Read more >>

These horses will be slaughtered! The BLM has already admitted to running out of holding spaces. All of this brutal slaughter to appease a handful of ranchers, it is critical that we get new management from top down at the BLM!
Owyhee complex has already been assaulted too many times recently, seriously doubt there are 800 horses left; this is a “zero” out assault. Stop the genocide. Block the trap pens.
How naive [or complicit] is the Las Vegas newspaper? Surely they don’t belive that these horses would be given new homes… Judging by past performance, you can bet that they will end up being slaughtered.
