EUREKA, NV - JULY 07: A group of wild horses wait in a holding pen after a gathering July 7, 2005 in Eureka, Nevada. The Bureau of Land Management is gathering wild horses in the American West, where an estimated 37,000 wild horses roam free. Many of the horses that are gathered are put up for adoption while others are treated with birth control and released back to the wild. (Photo by Justin Sullivan/Getty Images)

BLM to accelerate roundups and surgically sterilize America’s wild horses

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.
