Thundering choppers overhead are driving the wild horses, many that appear terrified, toward a trap. For most, these are their final moments living wild and free. PLEASE WATCH THE NBC NEWS VIDEO. Awareness is the only way to fight for our wild horses!!

The people doing the roundups are the ones that should be run for miles over the desert through barbed wire fences, and straight into their PEN-itentiary prison cells for ignoring and breaking the law. "Only 1% deaths" is 1% too much. How aboutno deaths, by leaving them alone to be wild and free in accordance with the Wild Horse and Burro Free Roaming Act of 1971.

It seems that in an oppressed society, there can be no symbols of freedom with the extermination of wild equines and wolves.

The horses should never be rounded up.

One free way to raise funds for organizations trying to protect and advocate for wild equines is GoodSearch.com. Each time you search online, buy online, view videos, take surveys, or dine out, play online games, etc. you raise funds for your favorite charity. I am raising for The Cloud Foundation right now in their efforts to advocate for wild equine but American Wild Horse Preservation is on there too. I volley back and forth. These organizations need all the help they can get up against Big Money special interests.

What in the word "wild" do they not understand. Wild is to remain free to wander and roam. Leave them alone.

They have no business doing this to our precious wild icons!!!! They have zero compassion & have done this so cruelly--- pregnant mares, colts, the suffering was violently experienced by many--- families torn apart & it goes on & on sadly. Every American should be standing up against this & demand the government intercede. Yes, wealthy ranchers & their cattle take priority, I know. Thanks so much Judy for keeping this story current for all to see.!!!~

Nous devrions tous sur cette plančte avoir le devoir moral de laisser les animaux sauvages le droit de vivre en paix. Jamais, nous ne devrions les pourchasser et les terroriser.

Noted, hope and wish the truth will "hit" everybody. It is SO much lies from governemts and big companys. Very little are about truth and the little there are is just so much that we belive in them and go on with our life. But the rape of nature and cruelty to animals and all other LIFE goes on...............
