Judge asked to block horse roundup

WASHINGTON — An animal protection group asked a federal judge Wednesday to block a plan to round up about 2,500 wild horses at a Nevada range.

The Dec. 28 roundup is part of the Bureau of Land Management’s overall strategy to remove thousands of wild horses from public lands to protect herds and the rangelands that support them.

William Spriggs, a lawyer for In Defense of Animals, a California-based group that advocates on behalf of animal protection, called the roundup plan illegal.

He said the BLM’s policy of mass removal and stockpiling of horses was never authorized by Congress.

U.S. District Judge Paul Friedman said he would rule on the case before Dec. 25.
