HOUSTON – (SFTHH) At 1900 hrs, US Central Time, we received a personal phone call from Artist and Wild Horse Advocate Laura Leigh that she and her undisclosed travel partners were safe and not in harm’s way. Ms. Leigh disclosed that she had not been to the trap site, today, as her progress had been impeded by the local Sheriff’s Department and her name, despite the Federal Judge’s order, did not appear on the BLM’s approved attendee listing.
Ms. Leigh and company witnessed many trucks and trailers coming from the alleged trap site with the trailers full of horses. Local contacts have estimated that approximately 150 horses have lost their wild lives since the judge lifted the injunction.
