Antelope / Goshute Roundups Make the Headlines

A syndicated report has been picked up by major news outlets regarding the second wild horse gather at the Antelope Valley and Goshute HMAs in eastern Nevada.  Refer to this article in the Beaumont Enterprise for example.  Here’s what they have in common:

  • Unquestioned acceptance of statements regarding wild horse populations
  • Erroneous reporting of the number of horses removed
  • Animal deaths not mentioned

Although the stories hint at the role of livestock in the debacle, they fail to acknowledge that all of this is happening on lands set aside for the horses.
