Federal regulators want to hear from all stakeholders and interested parties with regard to our nation’s wild horses. Per the Dept. of the Interior, it is the responsibility of the Bureau of Land Management to establish policies pertaining to wild horses on federal lands. An important consideration is the land’s capacity to support these animals. Next month, the bureau’s National Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Board will meet in Arlington right across the Potomac from D.C. at the Key Bridge Marriott. Among the topics to be discussed are issues relating to the management, protection, and control of wild horses and burros on Western public rangelands.
