In Alberta there is a capture season that runs from November 1 until March 1 each year. During this time a permit holder is allowed to catch three studs to one mare. However, there is no limit on the number of horses a person may capture or kill provided this ratio is adhered to.
We are collecting signatures to request that Canada enact federal legislation that will offer protection to these horses so they do not end up in slaughter houses or as bear bait. Please add your name to tell the government that the horses need protection.
