The Devil’s Garden roundup by Forest Service has captured 113 wild horses, and 1 death, of the 500 targeted.
The Diamond roundup targets over 1200 wild horses for capture. As of day 3 of the operation 155 have been captured and 2 have died: a 5 month old broke a vertebrae in her spine and an adult dropped dead during capture.
Wild horses are being transferred to holding facilities with dangerous smoke levels. >> https://bit.ly/3c6fWM1
Our team is tracking some of the exodus of wildlife and wild horses from the fire and smoke.
From one of our reps in field: “I am watching the exodus and wildlife and wild horses moving down the NW corridor of NV… and waters are off. Lots of animal sign near dry troughs.”
If you live in the western US can you call or write your Governor and ask that they urge the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and Forest Service to mandate turning on all waters on public land during this dire emergency?
