Long live wild horses. That is the essence of the American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign, which advocates for keeping horses alive and free and not facing slaughter in the American West.
But horse populations grow relatively quickly, forcing federal managers to consider options to keep herd numbers down.
AWHPC opposes slaughter and keeping horses captive, especially when removing animals from the range appears to favor private cattle herds.
Suzanne Roy and Deniz Bolbol from the campaign join us with their perspective.
