Follow-up Extra: Wild Horses Safe!

The Daily Catch - published on 09/16/16

On Wednesday evening we posted about the possibility of almost 45,000 wild horses being euthanized. We learned that, thanks to public outcry, the government has issued a statement saying they will not send any of the animals to slaughter:

The National Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Board on Friday recommended the bureau consider euthanizing the animals that cannot be adopted, or selling them to companies that might slaughter them. But Tom Gorey, a spokesman for the bureau, said in an email that the agency will “continue its current policy of caring for unadopted or unsold wild horses and burros” and will “not sell or send any animals to slaughter.” Gillian Lyons, wild horse and burro program manager for the Humane Society of the United States, said members of the public were quick to criticize the idea of killing the wild animals. “It’s something the American public just doesn’t know about, you don’t think of wild horses being held in facilities all across the United States,” Lyons said.
