Advocates Disappointed with Heber Recommendations

The proposed management plan for the Heber WHT is now in the public domain and some wild horse advocates are not happy with it, according to a story that appeared today in the White Mountain Independent.

One person said the collaborative working group that drafted the plan had a pre-set agenda to remove all free roaming horses from the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest.

Another said the group was trying to solve a problem that didn’t exist.

A third person said she was removed from the group because she disagreed with some of the recommendations.

Comments on the plan can be submitted to the Forest Service this summer, according to the report.
