Despite the fact that many consider wild horses American icons, these animals are being threatened across the U.S. Unfortunately, wild horses are seen as competition for cattle on grazing lands, and as a result, they are being systematically rounded up and removed from their native habitat. The Bureau of Land Management uses helicopters to round them up and transport the horses either to government holding facilities or they are sent to auction.

This is no sort of life for these amazing, majestic animals. This video shows the kind of life that wild horses deserve, one where they can enjoy their environment and live without fear of being captured and sent to a glorified jail cell.

The odds might be stacked against the American wild horse, but luckily there are many activists working to protect them. The American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign (AWHPC) is dedicated to preserving the freedom of these beautiful creatures.

Kudos to this site! I was expecting the usual call to let them roam free, reproduce freely, totally untouched by humans, which would be a disaster for the lands AND the horses (and no, I don't give a DAMN about the cattle ranchers).

All animals deserve to live as naturally as possible, not farmed or hunted by uncivilised humans.

the point is, our wild horses are being rounded up by the BLM by the thousands and held in pens and going to slaughter while the entitled welfare cattle ranchers graze their herds in their place and some like Bundy, not paying for the privilege, owing the government to the tune of one million dollars.

No that's just one point about this issue.
