Our guest tonight will be Carol Walker, Dir. of Field Documentation for Wild Horse Freedom Federation. The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is proceeding with a Radio Collar Study of wild mares in the Adobe Town Herd Management despite overwhelming public comment against it and an IBLA Appeal that was filed. The BLM plans to use bait trapping to capture 30 wild mares in 3-5 different areas within the HMA to track movement. Huge concerns have been raised about the welfare and safety of the mares because Radio collars are dangerous and can cause injury and death. Carol Walker has spent 13 years observing and photographing wild horses in Adobe Town.
This show is hosted by Debbie Coffey, V.P. & Dir. of Wild Horse Affairs, Wild Horse Freedom Federation.
