We are glad and thankful that our Forest Service listened to the public and that we now are managing the Salt River wild horses humanely. We implore the Modoc National Forest to do the same.

Animal activists outraged at Forest Service handling of wild horses

Animal activists and horse lovers are criticizing the U.S. Forest Service’s plan to round up 1,000 wild horses in northern California this month, saying the animals could wind up being sold to slaughterhouses. The Forest Service cites a 2013 management plan that says the area’s approximately 4,000 horses are causing significant damage to the ecosystem and consequently to the herds themselves.
