We just received the wonderful news that, after nearly a year of legal filings, we have prevailed in shutting down the rancher-backed lawsuit against wild horses and burros in Nevada. The ranchers and their allies were trying to force the government to roundup and remove more than 6,000 wild horses from public lands in Nevada and to sell the 50,000 wild horses stockpiled in holding facilities for slaughter!
Thanks to you, we stopped this heinous lawsuit dead in its tracks.
Today, U.S. District Court in Nevada Judge Miranda Du granted the motion filed by the American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign (AWHPC), author Terri Farley and photographer Mark Terrell to dismiss this lawsuit, agreeing with our arguments that it lacked legal merit.

Special thanks to the AWHPC supporters who have generously contributed to our legal fund. You have given us the resources necessary to intervene in this case and defend Nevada's wild horses from this legal attack. For that, we are very grateful.
We continue to fight a number of other legal battles on behalf of wild horses-- to contribute AWHPC's legal fund please click here.
Thank you for cherishing America's amazing wild horses and burros.
