Two beautiful healthy wild horses were found shot and killed in the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest. This occurred sometime yesterday, oct 13th 2018, on FS road 50, mm8, close to the Heber Wild Horse Territory. This is not the first time for someone to shoot wild horses in the Heber area or the Salt River area. The coward who shot 3 Salt River wild horses in 2016, was never found. We are outraged at the cruelty. It is scary that someone could harbor so much resentment to shoot and kill innocent wild horses so brutally. We are offering a $2000 reward

(He has severe arthritis and is now living happily ever
SRP (Salt River Project) has no environmental clause for the management of the lower Salt River, from Stewart Mountain Dam, to Granite Reef Dam, and it is usually kept at 0 to 8 CFS during the winter. (Compare this to the average of 900 CFS during the summer.) It pains us every year to see the river reduced to just a trickle and see the river eelgrass rot and die, which is an amazing resource for the horses. The impact does not just pertain to the horses of course, but to all wildlife, aquatic life, plants and trees along the
