Advocates Fight ‘Arrogant Special Interest Agency’

No, it’s not the BLM.  It’s the New Mexico Livestock Board and its ‘long-term culture against wild horses.’

Wild horse enthusiasts, who won the release of the Alto horses last year, are pushing back against a bill that would put the NMLB in charge of the state’s wild horses, arguing that the agency has a ‘clear vendetta’ against the animals.  See this report, posted today by Ruidoso News.

Instead, they favor a bill known as the Wild Horse Protection and Habitat Act that would, among other things, conduct a census of wild horse herds, develop educational materials, create a fencing program and work with the DOT on safety issues.

They also support a bill that would provide for a special vehicle registration plate expressing support for wild horses.
