The 2010 Twin Peaks roundup resulted in the permanent removal of more than 1,500 wild horses and 160 burros from the range…
For the first time in the history of the Wild Horse Act, an Appeals Court will determine whether the BLM‘s interpretation of the Act is consistent with Congress’s intent to protect these living symbols of the West over 40 years ago.
Attorney Rachel Fazio has donated her time for years to FIGHT for the Voiceless wild horses and burros in the Twin Peaks case. She stayed on when other pro-bono lawyers couldn’t give any more time. She is a most devoted and a humble hero for the wild ones.
The 2010 Twin Peaks roundup resulted in the permanent removal of more than 1,500 wild horses and 160 burros from the range. Fifteen more were killed and 54 mares were injected with immunocontraceptives before being released. As of August 2012, 977 of the wild horses removed from the range are still incarcerated and 158 more have died.
The BLM failed to consider current data regarding ecological resources in the herd management area (HMA), and also illegally harassed and captured horses that were not even considered “excess” by their own inappropriate standards.
