Tucson protests wild horse and burro treatment, roundup Friday, Jan. 22

Many say wild mustangs are meant to run free – but the federal government says otherwise.

Despite plenty of protests, a major federal roundup of wild mustangs started late last month.
Tucson is joining the national stampede of protests objecting to the treatment of wild mustangs and burros and calling for a moratorium on their roundups.
Tucson’s protest will be held from 10 a.m. to noon on Friday, Jan. 22, in front of the local office of Sen. John McCain, 407 West Congress Street, suite 103.
More than 900 wild horses have already been caught and crammed into holding areas in the Calico Hills Roundup, taking place in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert.
The roundup is predicted to last two months and cost some $1 million. The aim is to haul away more than 2,500 mustangs from the 500,000-plus acres of land.
If you can’t make the Tucson protest, another in Phoenix is scheduled for Jan. 30, and a number of other cities have already participated. The growing list of protests:
