LAS VEGAS — The Bureau of Land Management has suspended the late November gather of 104 wild horses living south of Walker Lake on the Hawthorne Army Depot in northern Nevada.The suspension will give the Army and the BLM time to consider a proposal by horse advocate groups to solve a problem of horses crossing U.S. 95, and for the long-term maintenance of horses already on the depot, the BLM said.“We will suspend the Walker Lake portion of our Pilot Mountain herd gather to come to agreement on how to construct fencing to keep wild horses off the highway near Walker Lake and to examine their ideas for maintaining a herd on Depot property,” said Terri Knutson, BLM Stillwater field office manager.  Earlier this year, at least seven horses that left the depot were hit by cars on the highway, the BLM said.

    I’m SO relieved to read this great news……the US is such a big country and there’s more than plenty room for both animals (including all beautiful wild creatures), and humans to live happily in comfort……….we just need much more kindness and compassion from some of the humans who are cruel and arrogant, and care so little for the beauty of nature around us and just want to kill instead of share.
