Protect wild horses
The 1971 Free Roaming Wild Horse and Burro Act clearly states that it is the policy of Congress that wild free-roaming horses and burros should be protected from capture, branding, harassment or death. To accomplish this, they are to be considered an integral part of the natural system of the public lands on which they are found.
But today, brutal roundups, and corralling of these “treasures” leave more wild horses in “prison” than in the wild. And hundreds of them are being sold for slaughter, according to life savers Wild Horse Rescue.
There are humane ways to manage wild horse populations.
