Misclassification of wild horses as a non-native species is politically, not scientifically driven,”

June 10, 2014 - Friends of Animals (FoA) and The Cloud Foundation have filed a petition with the U.S.

                      http://friendsofanimals.org/, ~~~~   http://www.thecloudfoundation.org/

Fish and Wildlife Service to list North American wild horses on public lands as threatened or endangeredunder the Endangered Species Act (ESA) since the Wild Free-Roaming Horse and Burro Act(WHBA), which was passed in 1971, has failed to protect our wild horses. Six states have already lost their wild horse populations—Missouri, Iowa, Arkansas, Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas.

Misclassification of wild horses as a non-native species is politically, not scientifically driven,” said Ginger Kathrens, executive director of The Cloud Foundation. “Wild horses are severely endangered but without recognition of current scientific evidence of their native status, they could become extinct.”
