Nevada Wild Horses Get a Win

February 16, 2012

Dear Wild Horse & Burro Defenders;

There are good days and bad days, but Tuesday was a great day! The Cloud Foundation, Western Watersheds Project, and American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign (AWHPC) achieved another victory for the wild horses of the Pancake Complex in Nevada. The U.S. Dept. of Justice signed an agreement Tuesday cancelling plans to round up 198 mustangs living in the U.S. Forest Service’s Monte Cristo Wild Horse Territory.

Our legal challenge prevented not only the removal of the Monte Cristo horses, it blocked BLM’s attempt to geld 200 stallions and return them to the range, and to zero out the entire Jakes Wash herd.
