Wild horse advocates condemn Interior Dept’s population control plan; take action

» SIGN AND SEND LETTER TO PRESIDENT BIDEN «


WASHINGTON (Gray DC) (Full Report) — Animal rights groups are contacting the Biden administration, condemning their latest move to control the overpopulation of wild horses in the West, including in Nevada.

Interior Secretary Deb Haaland detailed the Biden Administration’s policy on managing the overpopulation of wild horses in the West.

“We’re in agreement with the plan of the previous Administration,” she said during an April 20 appropriations hearing. “We’re going to let the science guide us.”

Under those policies, the Wild Horse and Burro Program will continue to use a combination of measures to manage the population, including helicopter roundups to gather and corral horses into pens, fertility controls and adoption and sales programs.

After legal challenges, the Department of Interior said in April they will not be following through on a plan to test a controversial sterilization method where they forcibly remove mares’ ovaries.

Another advocacy group the American Wild Horse Campaign is also urging the Biden administration to manage wild horses better. You can listen to an excerpt of the interview with Executive Director Suzanne Roy at source. But first . . . . !
