A news release posted today by EIN Presswire praises language in a draft appropriations bill for the Department of the Interior about the ‘rewilding’ of horses and burros.
The concept, which appears on page 15 of the proposed legislation, refers to the transfer of captured horses from government corrals and contracted pastures to private facilities, not their home range, just as the ranchers wanted.
The draft also includes $6 million for the first phase of the wild horse eradication plan, also favored by the ranchers. See page 10.
