Call to Protect Wild Horses in Wyoming Gas Drilling Scheme

March 7th, 2013 by Nicole Meyer

The American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign—a national coalition which includes In Defense of Animals—and its coalition partner The Cloud Foundation are calling for protections of wild horses in the development of the proposed Continental Divide-Creston Natural Gas Project in Wyoming. The project will affect more than 195 square miles of federally designated wild horse habitat. The coalition recently submitted comments to the Bureau of Land Management on an Environmental Impact Statement for the proposed project.

    Did you say,that this was Federally Protected area for the horses?

    These horse are what they are called “wild horses”. Leave them alone and let them run free. These beautiful animals need to be protected, after all this was there land first. Why is it that humans think they can just take whatever they want. Hope all the people responsible for the
    hurt or loss of these animals get their karma. What a sad world for our animals today.

    i hope every effort will be made to protect these horses. They should be the highest priority in any decision that is made. They belong to all Americans and their existence does affect all of us, even if we live at a distance.

    The horses were there first, let them live their lives FREE and without worry of humans killing them off. Why must we continue to take land from already FEDERALLY DESIGNATED wild horse habitat. It is federally designated for a reason, to protect these wonderful wild horses.
