Save the Pine Nut Fish Springs Wild Horses from Capture!

We the undersigned citizens are calling on the Bureau of Land Management to leave the Pine Nut Fish Springs wild horses in their home on our public lands near Gardnerville, Nevada. These iconic Nevada mustangs have an international following and are an important tourism resource for the local area. The local community embraces their presence and the livestock grazing permitee in the area supports their protection.
The Fish Springs wild horses are managed through a community partnership that utilizes the PZP birth control vaccine to humanely reduce population growth in the herd. It makes no sense to round up and remove horses that are being successfully managed at no cost to taxpayers.... especially given that the round up, removal and storage of 45 horses in holding pens could cost taxpayers $1 million or more! Worse, given the BLM's push for lethal management solutions, every horse removed from the range will be in grave danger of being killed or slaughtered.
This Administration has stated a commitment to honoring the wishes of local communities. In the interest of fiscal responsibility and humane treatment of these cherished horses, we urge you to honor the citizens and businesses of this area and the interests of horse lovers throughout the world by leaving the Fish Springs horses on our public lands. At minimum, any removals that do take place must be incremental and must not exceed the local community’s capacity to train and adopt the horses out to quality and long-term homes.
