The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:
Did you see the American Wild Horse Campaign on CBS Colorado? One of our team members, AWHC spokesperson Scott Wilson, was recently interviewed by investigative reporter Katie Weiss.
Scott had a chance to talk about Colorado’s West Douglas herd roundup. Here’s what he had to say:
The roundup, which occurred in the West Douglas Herd Area (HA), was expensive and cost the taxpayers $187,000 in federal tax dollars. It also resulted in the complete eradication of the horses who call West Douglas home. You can click here to see the full article and learn about the atrocities that the West Douglas horses faced.
One of the most important things that the American Wild Horse Campaign does is educate the public about what’s happening to wild horses and burros, and the inhumane ways the federal government is treating them. We know there’s a better way, and that’s why we’ve been working to spread our message to as many folks as we can.
