Feds Begin Selling Wild Horses Captured in California for $1 Each

Wild horses from the Devl's Garden Wild Horse Territory

The U.S. Forest Service (USFS) announced this week it will sell off wild horses recently rounded up from the Devil’s Garden Plateau Wild Horse Territory inside California’s Modoc National Forest for as low as $1 each, drawing condemnation from wild horse advocates who say the “fire sale price” will motivate buyers to launder the horses into slaughter.

About 200 horses are available for adoption and sale until Feb. 18. The fee for purchase “with limitations” has been reduced to $1 per horse, down from the original price of $25. The fee for adoption is $125.

  • Makes me so mad.
    Sad.
    I have some paintings of wild horses that,when and if sold, the money goes to these horses.
    I was wondering if you would be interested in helping me sell them?
    As in an auction?
    Thanks,
