Salt River Advocates Complain About Reduced Water Flow

They don’t protect life, they prevent it.  Now, they’re worried that the herd they’re trying to eradicate won’t have enough food for the winter, according to a report by Cronkite News, the news division of Arizona PBS.

Maybe they don’t like the competition.  Getting rid of the horses is their job.

With the birth rate approaching zero, the herd is shrinking.

The Salt River Horse Exhibit, a product of the local advocacy group in cooperation with the Campaign Against America’s Wild Horses, contains about 440 adults in the Tonto National Forest, east of Phoenix, AZ.

The darting program is equivalent to a roundup of about 100 horses every year.
