Bill Seeks Ban on Wild Horse Helicopter Roundups

Earlier this year, footage of a Bureau of Land Management roundup in Nevada captured a horrifying and tragic incident where a young colt’s leg snapped in half as he was being relentlessly chased by a helicopter. In response to this and countless other incidents where wild horses have been seriously injured or killed during roundups, Representative Dina Titus (D-NV) introduced the Wild Horse and Burro Protection Act (HR 6635) in the House in February to ban the use of helicopters to gather and remove wild horses from the range.
