Stop the Roundups, Fertility Control is Better!

Todd Gloria, a member of the California State Assembly, has written a letter to the USFS demanding an end to the Devils’s Garden wild horse gather, according to a report that appeared yesterday in East County Magazine.  It was signed by 22 of his legislative colleagues (most of whom are liberals).
