Update: 174 Pilot Valley Wild (or feral) Horses Gathered By BLM…
Posted by Texas Mustang Project on July 7, 2010
Jill Starr has organized a rather comprehensive rescue effort for the 174 Pilot Valley horses that BLM rounded up late last month and turned over to the Nevada Department of Agriculture to sell off at a livestock sale in Fallon on July 10th.
Advocates are concerned that these horses were not privately owned as BLM is claiming, but actually may have strayed off one of the nearby BLM wild horse herd areas and therefore should be protected from going to the kill buyers. Starr’s Lifesavers Wild Horse Rescue, with assistance from several other organizations, will bid against the kill buyers for these horses and Lifesavers has a local facility ready to receive them.
This effort is not intended to exclude any qualified and caring private individuals from acquiring some of these horses.
