Spirit of Horses and Burros Act threatened
The week-end before Thanksgiving Congress passed the omnibus Federal Appropriations bill. Hidden within this massive tome is rider #142 that strips federal protection for America's wild horses. Without public debate Congress opened the way for the animals to be slaughtered for profit. President Bush will sign the bill into law December 6.
Fate for many of these wild horses will be the dinner plates of Europe.
