Judge denies request to delay wild horse roundup 

Wyoming wild horses

They are going to keep doing wild horse round ups until there are none left. Twenty years from now there will be statues and plaques of wild mustangs to the memorialize the “Spirit of the Wild West”. And vacationer camps where will you be allowed to watch horses run…but they will NOT be truly wild or free. This is the direction Wyoming is heading in. It looks like there is no place to comment on the news site, so be sure to comment on ours. ~ HfH

Wyoming wild horsesCHEYENNE, WYO. — A federal judge has denied a request from horse preservation groups to block the federal government’s plan to round up about 800 wild horses in Wyoming.

Judge Nancy Freudenthal in Cheyenne on Thursday denied the group’s request for an injunction. The groups responded by filing an appeal with a federal appeals court in Denver.

The groups are challenging the U.S. Bureau of Land Management’s plans to remove horses from the Great Divide Basin, Adobe Town and Salt Wells Creek herd management areas in southern Wyoming areas starting next month.

The groups claim the federal agency failed to follow environmental laws in planning the action.

The state of Wyoming has intervened in the lawsuit, saying wild horses must not be allowed to damage the lands or conflict with private property rights.
