Lawsuit Prompts U.S. Forest Service To Cancel Wild Horse Roundup

On the hooves of a federal lawsuit we filed in December 2011 challenging various aspects of a wild horse gather decision by the Bureau of Land Management and the U.S. Forest Service, the Forest Service has decided to withdraw its participation in the roundup.  The Forest Service’s agreement not to gather horses as part of this decision means that 198 wild horses in the Monte Cristo Wild Horse Territory will be spared from roundups at this time, and will not be subject to gelding, sex-ratio skewing, and other controversial population control techniques that would otherwise have been implemented there.
