Local Communities Need Your Help to Protect Their Wild Horses
For decades, community groups have enjoyed and worked to protect the cherished wild horses that live in and around the Pine Nut Mountains Herd Management Area (HMA) in northern Nevada. But now the beloved Pine Nut horses are threatened by a Bureau of Land Management (BLM) plan to round up 500 of 579 of the mustangs living there!
These neighbors and the horses they love need our help today! Please weigh in against a devastating massive roundup and ask BLM to work with the local community to implement a birth control program for humane, in-the-wild management of the Pine Nut wild horses.
Attorney for AWHPC Delivers Strong Defense for California Wild Horses
Yesterday, attorney David Zaft of Caldwell Leslie in Los Angeles skillfully defended a key population of wild horses in California during oral arguments before the nation's second highest court.
Working pro bono for the Animal Legal Defense Fund and representing the American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign, wild horse advocate Carla Bowers and Return to Freedom, Zaft forcefully argued that the U.S. Forest Service's plan to reduce the size of the Devils Garden Plateau Wild Horse Territory and remove up to 80 percent of the horses living there violated several federal laws. The justices reacted so favorably to our arguments that a national news reporter covering the hearing predicted "eventual victory" in our case!
