The Forest Service is again trying to find homes for Wild Mustangs. A lot of resistance and controversy dogged last year’s roundup. In May, animal welfare organizations declared victory in their fight to keep the Forest Service from allowing potential adoption by slaughterhouses. About 900 Wild Mustangs were gathered from the Devils Garden Plateau in Modoc County last November because they were overcrowded and destroying the other wildlife. A federal lawsuit was filed and an attorney for the Forest Service said in court that the agency had changed its position and that no horses would be sent to slaughter. The agency still had a hard time ridding itself of all the horses, eventually having to offer to deliver them to adopters for free. Still, the 1800 horses remaining on the plateau far exceeded the 200 to 400 recommended by scientists. The land is just not enough for them and they’re literally trampling it to death. Another roundup done in September gathered 344 horses. 90 have been placed in new homes. All horses that are younger than 10 years can now be purchased with limitations for $25. Starting January 10th the remaining horses will be available for One Dollar. Information is available at 233-8738 or on Facebook at doubledevilwildhorsecorrals.
