Cloud's Final Weeks of Freedom? Help Save Him and His Family!

Doesn't the West Douglas decision (that BLM exceeds its authority to remove excess wild horses and burros), affect and apply to all removal activities? Apparently BLM refused to discuss this issue at the Barstow meeting two days ago regarding the helipcopter gather of the burros.

Reminder that these are Heritage Herds and distinct population segments, lacking NHPA Sec 106 compliance.

Cloud's Final Weeks of Freedom? Help Save Him and His Family

The Pryor Mountain wild horses in Montana are the descendants of the horses brought to the Americas with the Spanish Conquistadors in 1500. One horse in particular, Cloud, pictured here, and his family are perhaps the most famous wild horses in the world - having been the subject of fascinating documentaries and books. But their fame is not going to protect the herd from a drastic government round up planned to begin September 1, 2009. Read more and send an e-mail to government officials.
