Hello and Happy Monday!
As you know, our North Dakota legislators have drafted a Senate Concurrent Resolution – SCR 4014. The resolution reads: A concurrent resolution urging the Secretary of the Interior and the Director of the National Park Service to modify its proposed livestock management plan, and to continue to allow for interpretative, cultural, and historical purposes a herd of longhorn steers in the North Unit of the
Theodore Roosevelt National Park and the presence of a wild horse herd in the South Unit of the Theodore Roosevelt National Park.
The Energy & Natural Resources Committee heard testimony last Thursday. Chasing Horses Wild Horse Advocates was at the North Dakota State Capitol Building in Bismarck to testify in favor of this resolution. The committee chair said that this resolution had more comments than any other piece of legislation before the committee this session! THANK YOU for that!
Last Friday, the committee discussed the resolution and amendments that were submitted. You can view the discussion AND the committee’s PASSAGE of SCR 4014 as amended here: https://video.ndlegis.gov/en/PowerBrowser/PowerBrowserV2/20230210/-1/2888! It will move to the North Dakota Senate for a vote this week and then it will head over to the North Dakota House for testimony and a vote.
This is a HUGE win for the wild horses that call Theodore Roosevelt National Park home! THANK YOU to each one of you who have answered any or all of our “Calls to Action” – ALL of those made SCR 4014 happen! We hope you enjoy this moment seeing your hard work pay off!
These horses are NOT safe yet! The park is going through it’s Environmental Assessment process. They will be back in the spring to let us know the results of that assessment and where things stand with the wild horses that call the park home.
Chasing Horses Wild Horse Advocates promises to continue to be a leading voice with all of you as we Fight for the Spirit of the Badlands!
Thank you for your support!
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.
