This film will be screened next week at the Nevada Museum of Art, according to a story posted yesterday by Carson Now. A panel discussion involving land managers, wildlife scientists and wild horse advocates will follow.
Wild horses and burros have lost around 40% of the land that was set aside for them by the WHB Act of 1971. The Act has been amended several times by ranching interests and no longer affords the protections sought by Velma. The roundups and off-range holding facilities seen in the video reflect that reality.
