The Political Animal No. 5: Fighting America’s Wild-Horse Round-Ups
Jan 12th, 2020 by ThePoliticalAnimal
Thousands of wild horses each year are rounded up in a terrifying assault of helicopters and relocated to feeder farms, many of which are in habitats that are foreign to the animals. Why? So ranchers can have cheap access to public lands--your lands--to graze their cattle and then better profit from the beef they sell.
Suzanne Roy, head of American Wild Horse Campaign, joins host Joseph Grove and Animal Wellness Action founders Wayne Pacelle and Marty Irby to talk about this cruel practice, the needless capitulations some animal groups are making to appease the government, and how the public is being cheated by the practice.
