Senate Funding of ‘Path Forward’ in the News

Funding to carry out a sizeable chunk of the wild horse management plan, authorized last week by the Senate Committee on Appropriations, has ranchers celebrating and advocates fuming, according to an AP story posted today by KTLA News of Los Angeles.

The glorious ‘Path Forward,’ as it is known, will protect the animals from killing or sale to slaughter, according to the report, except that most of them will be removed from their home range (so they can be replaced with privately owned cattle and sheep).

Put them in sanctuaries or contracted pastures so they can live out their lives in segregated herds.  No families, no foals, no legacy.
