As you know, the North Dakota legislators are in the process of drafting a resolution asking Theodore Roosevelt National Park to keep the wild horses IN the park’s boundaries.
As you also know, Representative Josh Boschee wrote a letter to the National Park Service asking for an extension to the comment period to allow our North Dakota state legislators to formulate a proper response, either in the form of a letter or a resolution.
TODAY, Representative Boschee received the following letter from Superintendent Angie Richman letting him know that Theodore Roosevelt National Park would NOT grant an extension for our legislators so that they could go through their process to introduce an vote on the resolution.
The legislators WILL still be moving forward with the resolution. Representative Boschee spoke with me today and said that Senator Jay Elkin was taking the lead and pretty much all of the legislators on the western part of the state were now involved in some capacity – ALL IN A GOOD WAY! This includes adding to the resolution to keep the longhorn cattle in the North Unit.
The fight is far from over. Please make sure you are calling our federal legislators (I TALKED TO ONE TODAY – more later on that!) see our Call to Action #9 https://chwha.org/2023/01/16/15-days-call-to-action-9/
And the #1 thing that we can ALL do:
PLEASE make sure that you share your comments no later than January 31, 2023, online through the PEPC website at: https://parkplanning.nps.gov/LP

Chasing Horses Wild Horse Advocates is committed to advocating for a wild horse management plan and protection for these unique wild horses that call Theodore Roosevelt National Park home! We are fighting for a management plan that is guided by science especially when it comes to decisions regarding the removal of horses and the administration of birth control. Many other wild horse management plans have proven to be successful with their science-based plans. We are asking for the same for this amazing group of wild horses that call Theodore Roosevelt National Park home.
