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.
