The American Wild Horse Campaign has filed a lawsuit in the Nevada First Judicial District Court to stop the Nevada Department of Agriculture from transferring ownership of the Virginia Range horses to a non-profit advocacy group, according to a press release dated 03/19/18.
Trailcam image below shows some VR horses just before sunset on 06/05/17.
A video overview appears on this page.
Wild horses roam the South Unit, along with bison and other wildlife. The horses, of course, are subject to ‘humane’ management practices. Excess horses are offered for adoption through the General Services Administration. The North Dakota Badlands Horse Registry maintains a database of adopted horses and advocates for WH preservation in TRNP.
The park is managed by the NPS, not the BLM.
Follow-up to the post of 03/13/18 regarding the potential for public comment on the RFP for the Virginia Range horses at the next Board of Agriculture meeting. Remarks begin at 0:03:55 in the following video and continue for about 22 minutes.
