In response to the lawsuit filed by Return to Freedom and other coalition partners, BLM’s planned capture and removal of over 800 wild horses from Wyoming’s Great Divide Basin, Adobe Town and Salt Wells Creek Herd Management Areas (HMAs) has been postponed at least until September 1. On Friday, RTF, AWHPC, The Cloud Foundation, and wild horse photographers, Carol Walker and Kimerlee Curyl, filed a motion for a Preliminary Injunction to block the roundup.
We stand firm that BLM’s planned roundup is violating federal law and its own federal land use plans. To read more, read the recent press release here.
