Saving America's horses

Headline News TV

The Bureau of Land Management is forcibly rounding up wild horses in Northern Nevada. The government says they are trying to help the animals because they are starving, but critics say the roundup is torturing these animals.
The roundup is taking place during foaling season. That means that newborn foals and pregnant mares will be among the horses forcibly stampeded by helicopters just overhead.
Jane Velez-Mitchell spoke with the Director and Founder of Wild Horse Education, Laura Leigh who was near Jackson Mountain where the roundup is taking place.
