Return to Freedom, along with the American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign and several coalition members, filed a motion for an injunction to stop the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) from rounding up nearly half of Wyoming’s remaining wild horses. Our injunction was denied and this tragic roundup will move forward to appease a handful of ranchers.
Despite this setback, we will continue to pursue the lawsuit. The BLM violated federal mandates. Our case has considerable merit, and could set precedent to prevent future roundups and possibly return some of Wyoming’s gathered horses to the range.
Speak Up for America’s Wild Horses! Email Secretary of Interior Sally Jewel today and use your own words to tell her that public lands belong to all of us, that we want our wild horses to remain in the wild and that the BLM is not above the law!
