Nevada Governor must rescue Nevada Mustangs


The Virginia Range wild horses fall under the control of the Nevada Department of Agriculture. State laws designate them “stray livestock” no matter how many generations they’ve roamed the sagebrush hills of the Silver State.

This means they can be and are taken to livestock auctions where they are sold by the pound to kill buyers. 
Wild horse advocates worldwide asked Nevada Governor Bryan Sandoval to halt the “trap – castrate – destroy” cycle.
October 4, 2013: private-public partnership is created to cut NDA costs and save mustangs. 
January 2014: ,ASPCA’s Kevin O'Neill and wild horse advocates meet with NDA to express concern at the Department's failure to implement agreement. Advocates are told action is pending. 
February: wild horse trapping continues
March 2014 : silence from the governor’s office as NDA reverts to  “trap – castrate – destroy”
Today: Email, Phone, Fax  the Governor and tell him to act on this win-win way to humanely manage the Virginia Range horses ON THE RANGE through the proposed private-public partnership.
