The Heber Wild Horse Herd needs YOUR help! The Heber herd has never been subjected to legal government “gathers” or birth control. So far they have been left in their natural, free-roaming state. They are proof that wild horse herds do NOT double in size every four years. The Heber herd is the last “untouched” herd and therefore the only herd left in which to conduct a 5-7 year study by an independent group of scientists as recommended by the National Academy of Sciences. It is imperative that they are designated as a STUDY HERD. Wild horses are wildlife. It is time for the Forest Service and the BLM to stop managing them as livestock. The Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act clearly states that wild horses and burros are to be protected and all management activities shall be at the minimal feasible level. Please call Secretary Vilsack’s office at 202-720-3631 and politely ask that he make the Heber wild horse herd a study herd. A study will transform how wild horse herds are managed and therefore eliminate the unnecessary animal cruelty and wasted tax payer money that is currently used for capture and warehousing America’s wild horses.
