This morning Laura Leigh of Wild Horse Education was a guest on KNPR radios State of Nevada program. You can listen to the broadcast at this link: https://knpr.org/knpr/2017-04/will-wild-horses-be-dragged-away Or simply click the image below.
Note From Cathy Ceci, WHE volunteer: “I just got off the phone with Laura. She said she is not introduced until about half way through the program. She said some documents are quoted in the program inaccurately; we all know Laura is a bit of a stickler as she says the devils live in details. A link for you to read the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) report of 2013 is below.”
Laura Leigh said: “BLM declined to be interviewed. I think that is why I was given a last minute invitation to participate. I think I was able to get some relevant content into the discussion though, however I did not get to comment on many points. I know a lot of our readers will wish I said certain things, time was limited. As an example they talk about the “Misfits” as if all that was displayed was the treatment of horses and they completely miss Arthur Millers point. His point was that the West was changing, the horses were disappearing and the Mustangers, the West, had to evolve or disappear like the horse.”
