Thank you! Senator Hoeven!

Have you received your letter from Senator Hoeven? We did!

Dear Mrs. Kman,

          Thank you for contacting me regarding the wild horse herd at Theodore Roosevelt National Park.  I appreciate having the benefit of your views, and I welcome the opportunity to respond.

          Since the National Park Service (NPS) released a plan that considers removing the wild horses currently at Theodore Roosevelt National Park, I have heard an outpouring of concerns from North Dakotans like you regarding NPS’ proposal.  That is why I recently convened a meeting with NPS Director Charles Sams and North Dakota state leaders to directly relay these concerns to the NPS leadership and to press them to work with us to maintain a herd of wild horses at the park.  Please be assured that I will continue working with NPS, Governor Burgum, and our state’s leadership to find a solution to keep a herd of wild horses now and into the future.

         National parks are a tremendous resource for North Dakota, helping to preserve our beautiful landscapes, as well as our history and heritage.  The wild horses at Theodore Roosevelt National Park have existed in the park for decades, consistent with the ranching and conservation legacy of Theodore Roosevelt, and they should remain in the park for future generations to enjoy.

          Again, thank you for taking the time to contact me.  If I can be of further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me office at (202) 224 -2551.

THANK YOU Senator Hoeven for committing to working for solutions that keep a genetically viable herd in Theodore Roosevelt National Park now and in the future!

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.
