New Documentary Looks at Horse Slaughter?

A trailer has been released on Vimeo, but the owners do not allow embedding, even in their own news release!

Saving Americas Horses Trailer 11-21-22

A quote at the Saving America’s Horses home page says the film tells the story of how one of America’s most treasured and iconic species struggles to survive in a world where two camps claim to be saving them; one that actually does, and the other that is instead found to be brutally eliminating them and driving them to extinction.

If they’re referring to wild horses, Western Horse Watchers is unable to determine who’s in the first camp.

The bureaucrats, ranchers and advocates are in the second camp.

The film appears to have a downstream focus (things that happen after they’re taken off the range), which can only prolong their misery.

An upstream focus is needed—policies and plans that lead to the removals—to bring lasting solutions.

UPDATE: If the trailer looks dated, it’s because the film was originally released in 2012, during the Obama administration.  The producers may now be working on an update or tenth-year anniversary edition.
