Coalition Files Suit to Block Rock Springs RMP Amendments

Petitioners have asked the court to set aside and remand the amendments, the Record of Decision and Final EIS pending BLM’s compliance with the Wild Horse and Burro Act, Federal Land Policy and Management Act, National Environmental Policy Act and the Administrative Procedures Act, according to the complaint.

The Animal Welfare Institute said in today’s news release that it has joined forces with the American Wild Horse Campaign, Western Watersheds Project, author and instructor Dr. Chad Hansen, and wildlife photographers Kimerlee Curyl and Carol Walker to defend the free-roaming horses of the Wyoming Checkerboard against the Rock Springs Grazing Association, instigator of the case.
