No, the Federal Government Will Not Kill 45,000 Horses

 


Angry animal advocates can calm down: Tens of thousands of wild horses and donkeys will be spared the threat of an untimely death.

The federal government said this week that it will not consider a suggestion to euthanize the animals or sell them to slaughter.

The pronouncement, issued by the Bureau of Land Management, followed a public outcry over an advisory board’s recommendation on Friday that the agency kill or sell all of the 45,000 horses and donkeys in its custody that cannot be adopted.
