Managing for Extinction

Animal Welfare Institute (2011)

30 pages; $2

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is charged with protecting wild horses and burros on the range, as mandated by the Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act of 1971 (WFHBA). Tragically, the BLM has fallen far short of its mandate under this law. As a result, the long-term survival of these animals in the wild is in serious jeopardy. This update to one of our most popular publications provides damning evidence showing that BLM policy focuses almost exclusively on accommodating livestock grazing and other commercial uses, directly at the expense of wild equines. Strong recommendations are put forth on how the U.S. government can rectify this situation and provide the protections promised wild horses and burros in the WFHBA.
