Colville Roundup Moving Ahead

A report posted today by The Star of Grand Coulee, WA says the Colville Business Council has awarded a $500,000 contract to Sun J Livestock of Vernal, UT to remove 1,250 horses from tribal lands in northeastern Washington.

Charges against the horses sound like they were drafted by public-lands ranchers.

Captured animals will likely be shipped to slaughter in Canada, a practice that’s opposed by some members of the tribe.
