POLL: Wild Horse Round-Up Moratorium: Yay or Neigh?

The Bureau of Land Management wants to remove close to 12,000 wild horses and burros from the western range before October 2010, but a posse of mustang advocates is trying to head ’em off at the pass.  Over a hundred organizations, individuals, and scientists from around the globe are calling for a moratorium on round-ups.   In a November 18th letter to President Obama, inaccurate population data and range statistics as well as fiscal and legal complications of moving herds from their western ranges were cited as reasons to stop gathering the herds until other solutions are brought to the table.

Some of these proposed solutions will be examined in future posts but, for now, From Western Colorado wants to know what you think.   Poll is open through Christmas Eve.  Stay tuned…and thanks for listening.
