Shady Tactics Surround Obama’s BLM Roundup of Famous Kiger Wild Horses

PORTLAND, Ore. —The Cloud Foundation is outraged at the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) lack of transparency and avoidance of public input pertaining to the Kiger/Riddle Mountain roundup happening now outside of Burns, Oregon. The herds are famous for their Spanish Conquistador ancestry as well as Disney’s hit movie, Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron.

BLM’s plan would reduce the two herds to grossly non-viable populations of less than 50 animals each.
