“And then everyone will look back at the tragedy of these horses being gone and why didn’t anyone try to save them?”
There is much consternation about the possible removal of wild horses from Theodore Roosevelt National Park, including this opinion piece dated December 23 in INFORUM, a news service based in Fargo, ND.
The horses you see today were put there by the Park Service.
The original herd, thought to be descended from Sitting Bull’s horses, is gone, thanks to the Park Service.
Some were rescued by Leo Kuntz and moved to his ranch near Linton.
He called them Nokotas.
The story unfolds in Nakota Heart, a 60-minute film you can watch on YouTube.
