BLM changes horse gathering methods

Wild Horse Running

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Bureau of Land Management is increasing its use of an alternative method to remove excess wild horses from the range. For the first time they’ll use widespread bait trapping, which lures mustangs to food, water, and salt. This takes the place of the oft-criticized helicopter method, which activists have claimed traumatizes the horses and can injure or kill them.

    When did the gathering of wild horses by helicopter begin? Isn’t this in violation of the
    Wild Horse Annie Act and the Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act signed in 1971?
