Triple B was the beginning of ur fight to gain a humane handling policy that spanned 6 years. We filed and won the first court case against inappropriate conduct at Triple B. We litigated in multiple areas and in 2016 a policy began in practice. You can read more HERE.
Sweet siblings will go to PVC in the morning
Today a lot of wild horses were removed from the range. They will be transported to Palomino Valley Center (PVC) north of Reno to be prepared for adoption. These wild horses are considered “off HMA” and none of them will be considered for the release as wild horses often return to their home range. If you see a horse you would like to adopt contact PVC.
Not all pilots are created equally
Today there were a lot of runs, a lot of horses. The video below is added to show the pace that the vast majority of wild horses were moved across the valley. The pace would not be reflected a still image slideshow. Today the helicopter work was good. We could not view loading. There is still a lot of work to do in refining the handling policy, but today we wanted to show you how the wild ones at Triple B came in today.
We hope you continue to take action and call your representatives in Congress on the Department of Interior budget that could kill tens of thousands of wild horses. You can find information HERE.
