BLM Gets The Clear From Court For Horse Roundup

A federal court is upholding the government’s 2010 roundup of wild horses. In a 2-1 decision in the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco, justices this week rejected an appeal by horse advocates, saying the BLM completed the necessary environmental reviews for the Twin Peaks round-up on the Nevada-California border.

Horse advocates argue that the BLM gathered too many mustangs in that roundup, roughly 1600, and violated the Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act.
