Rally Draws Attention to Salt River Fencing

A local advocacy group hosted a rally today at the Coon Bluff Campground to bring awareness to a new fence along the Lower Salt River that will stop wild horses from crossing the Bush Highway.

Organizers said the fence would separate the horses from valuable resources, such as water, food and land to roam.

The Forest Service says it will reduce collisions with vehicles, which kill about 20 horses per year, and also stop livestock from joining the herd, according to a report posted this evening by Phoenix-based AZCentral.
