Fire endangers wild horse habitat
Close to 300,000 acres of the Twin Peak wild horse range have burned as of midnight August 20th.
We are very grateful to the Rush fire crews working to contain the fire, protect the land, livestock, wild horses and burros and especially the community.
We ask the BLM to find a way to help the wild horses on the range by bringing them food and water as needed–until the forage grows back.
Rounding up California’s last herd of wild horses and removing them from their herd management area is wrong. We don’t want them to lose their legally designated range to livestock, energy and mining use. These other forms of public land use can move elsewhere for a while, if needed, but California’s wild horses need their home on the range.
