Roundup Begins in Nevada and so do wild horse deaths


Picture above is from 2011 Antelope Complexroundup
Yesterday the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) began to remove horses from theAntelope Complex in eastern Nevada.
The American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign (AWHPC) released an "eyewitness report" from the roundup site today.
The report states: "Today saw tragedy as two horses died as a result of the stampede. The first, a stallion, highly agitated after being chased, trapped and forcibly separated from his family, jumped over the bars of the trap pen after a wrangler approached him with a whip. In the process, the stallion broke his rear left leg. AWHPC’s forthcoming video will show what happens as this poor stallion tries to free but is unable to run due to his horribly broken leg. A second horse died after sustaining a broken neck in the trailer while being hauled from the trap site to temporary holding."    Read MORE...
