The National Horse and Burro Rangeland Management Coalition (NHBRMC) released the following statements in response to the Department of the Interior’s (DOI) submission of “Management Options for a Sustainable Wild Horse and Burro Program” to Congress:

“We are pleased that the Department of the Interior has submitted their report to Congress regarding the dire overpopulation of wild horses and burros on western rangelands. The status quo has failed these animals and the lands on which they roam for far too long, and it is encouraging to see the agencies and Congress finally make progress towards solving this problem before more irreversible damage can be done to these sensitive ranges,” said NHBRMC chair Ethan Lane.

“At the end of the day, healthy horses on healthy rangelands is our top priorities and hopefully this document proposes some commonsense solutions to that end,” said NHBRMC vice chair Lia Biondo. “We are currently reviewing the options discussed in the report.”
