Wild Horse Sell Out Plan
Fiscal Year 2020 Appropriations awarded $21 Million to the Bureau of Land Management for the roundup, removal and long-term holding of 15,000-20,000 wild horses and burros in a single year from western public lands.
Misleadingly billed as a “path forward,” this proposal is actually a path to destruction for America’s remaining wild herds. It was overwhelmingly opposed by grassroots organizations and groups with boots-on-the-ground experience protecting and humanely managing wild horses and burros in the wild.
The Sell Outs
Who is behind this abusive and deadly outcome for America’s wild horses? The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA), the Public Lands Council, the ASPCA, and The Humane Society of the United States, who lobbied for and secured $21 Million of taxpayer money for this fiendish plan.
