The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) announced today that the Secretaries of Interior and Agriculture have made selections for the three open positions on its nine-member National Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Board. Sue M. McDonnell, PhD, Cert. AAB, of West Chester, Pa., has been appointed for the category of wild horse and burro research; Fred T. Woehl, Jr., of Harrison, Ark., has been appointed for the category of public interest (with special knowledge of equine behavior); and Robert E. Cope, DVM, of Salmon, Idaho, has been appointed for the category of natural resources management. Each individual will serve a three-year term on the board.
McDonnell is clinical associate and adjunct professor of reproduction and behavior at the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine. Also, as a certified applied animal behaviorist, she consults privately on equine behavior and welfare. McDonnell, who holds a PhD from the University of Delaware, co-edited the current leading academic book on horse behavior, titled The Domestic Horse: The Evolution, Development and Management of its Behaviour, published by Cambridge University Press.
