An advisory council, consisting of four individuals with expertise in business, law, conservation and Native American traditions, has been established for the project, according to a news release dated May 20.
Additional members will be announced in the next few weeks.
The proposed facility would be located in South Dakota.
The announcement concludes with a note about the organization’s research that led to a model for managing wild horses based on the idea of stable family bands.
Western Horse Watchers agrees with the concept and believes it warrants further study.
However, an email sent to ISPMB on March 6, asking for a link to the reports, which were to be published by the end of 2018 according to the second paragraph in a rebuttal of criticisms regarding conditions at the ranch in 2016, was never answered.
