America’s wild mustangs are part of our historical heritage and they are our responsibility to protect and preserve. The government’s current purposed horse round up in Northern California and sale of them is not an acceptable way to manage or preserve the animals now roaming freely inside the Modoc National Forest. The U.S. Forest Service purposes to round up hundreds of animals and make them available for adoption over a 30 day period. All those 10 years and older are to be sold without limitations at $1.00 each. This would allow kill buyers to purchase truckloads of horses. We must protect our wild horses and develop a more humane program for herd management. Sending hundreds of healthy horses to slaughter is not the solution!
