A story posted today by The Argus Observer of Ontario, OR says the agency has ‘altered’ its plan for sterilizing the Warm Springs mares: Animals receiving the procedure would not be pregnant. Otherwise, all aspects of the study remain the same.
None of the horses and burros removed from the HMA last October have been returned to their home range and none have been adopted, according to the report.
The agency is pushing the plan despite objections from the Animal Protection Caucus in Congress, along with many advocacy groups. See for example the commentary by IDA posted last week.
