It's Too Late to Stop Wild Horse Roundups in California

Horse-lovers were disappointed this week when the Ninth Circuit in San Francisco rejected a motion for a restraining order and injunction to halt the roundup of over 2,000 wild horses and wild burros along the California-Nevada border. The court said that the motion was moot as the round-up has already happened.

San Francisco-based In Defense of Animals and the Dreamcatcher Wild Horse and Burro Sanctuary have been battling the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) since 2009 to halt the roundup, which they claim violates the Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act.
