BLM Proposes to Remove More Mustangs from Cloud's Herd
Just two-and-a-half years ago, the Interior Department Bureau of Land Management (BLM) conducted a helicopter roundup in the Pryor Mountains that permanently removed 52 wild horses from their home in this 38,000-acre public land area on the border of Montana and Wyoming. Now the agency is accepting public comments on its plan to remove 30 more horses from this small herd. The proposed action will jeopardize the viability of this wild horse population, which is prized for its rare Spanish colonial ancestry.
Please take a moment during this holiday week to speak up for Cloud and his fellow herd members. Click below to submit your comments on the BLM's Preliminary Environmental Assessment for this removal plan.
