Judge Hears Arguments Against Sale of Devil’s Garden Horses

Animal protection groups urged a federal judge yesterday to block the sale (without limitation) of wild horses removed last year from the Devil’s Garden Plateau WHT, which was set to begin on May 13.

Plaintiffs believe the animals could be sold for human consumption.  That they might end up in pet food or other products apparently was not a concern.

A public-lands rancher attending the hearing said the horses drain resources that cattle and other wild animals need to survive.

The report did not say if any oil or mining companies had intervened in the case.
