Sheldon 9/9/2013 Is he still free or on his way to a precarious future?

The wild horses of Sheldon National Wildlife Refuge are literally vanishing into the pages of history. The Refuge (managed by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, USFWS) finalized plans in 2012 to remove the remaining horses. In 2013 they removed half the existing population of wild horses and almost all of the burros. The burros were removed without any press release. The wild horses were removed under intense public scrutiny and litigation. Not only was the public outraged that the horses would be gone forever but were incredibly concerned about the amount of secrecy and historic conduct that left many of the Sheldon horses in direct sight of the slaughter pipeline.

The above was posted in 2013. We removed the 2013 post and are preparing an article for this page.

This page is “under construction” as the wild horses of Sheldon literally vanish into the pages of American history.
