Forest Service Proposes “New” Management for an Oregon Herd That Copycats BLM Mismanagement

(Last Updated On: September 2, 2023)
Oregon wild horses captured and awaiting auction — or long-term holding.

The U.S. Forest Service (USFS) is proposing a new management plan for wild horses living in the Murderer’s Creek area in eastern Oregon. Unbelievably, despite the Bureau of Land Management’s long-standing failure of managing wild horses, USFS is now planning to copy BLM’s failed management practices.

USFS is proposing to create a plan that:

  • only allows for a dangerously small population, forcing horses to inbreed.
  • uses a fertility control that destroys the natural hormones necessary for “wild” behaviors, skews the natural sex ratio to create massive social chaos, and results in increased stallion aggression as they fight for a small number of females.

We hope you will join us in opposing this proposal. To sign our petition, please click here.
