Help Wild Horses During Drought

March 13th, 2013 by Nicole Meyer

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), the government agency responsible for managing wild horse populations, is taking public comments on a plan to manage wild horses and livestock during drought.

The Environmental Assessment analyzes a range of management alternatives that may be implemented to mitigate the effects of drought and to address emergency situations. According to our coalition partner, the American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign, management alternatives under consideration range from temporary hauling of water, to removal of horses, to reductions in authorized livestock grazing.

Time is short. Comments are due by March 16th.

    The wild horse herds should be allowed to stay in their habitat. Since we have limited their natural range, we have a responsibility to bring in water when drought arises. If the drought is extended, then reduction in livestock grazing is called for.
