The horses weren’t federally protected but they were killed just the same. Here’s a recap of similar incidents on federal lands since the summer of 2018:
- Spruce-Pequop HMA, Nevada, eight wild horses shot
- Heber WHT, Arizona, eleven wild horses shot
- Clark Mountain HA, California, 46 wild burros shot
In these cases, each count carries a penalty of one year in prison and a fine of $2,000.
UPDATE: The reward is now $15,000 according to a story by the Washington Post.
