Just in! The North Dakota House passed Senate Concurrent Resolution SCR 4014 UNANIMOUSLY!
You can view the vote here: https://video.ndlegis.gov/en/PowerBrowser/PowerBrowserV2/20230321/4173/29719
This is HUGE as it lets Theodore Roosevelt National Park, The Secretary of the Interior, NPS Director Sams, Senator Cramer, Senator Hoeven and Congressman Armstrong know that the state of North Dakota would like the wild horses (and longhorn cattle) to remain IN Theodore Roosevelt National Park!
This does NOT mean the horses are safe! The park is in the process of completing its Environmental Assessment (EA). They have stated that they will be back in the spring with the results of that assessment.
Our hope is that the park takes into consideration the voice of the people of North Dakota and allows a genetically viable herd to remain in Theodore Roosevelt National Park.
Beyond that, we hope that we are now able to get these horses protected under a federal public law. THAT is why Congressman Armstrong’s support is so important! Have you sent him an email? We made it easy for you: https://secure.everyaction.com/Rg-lK-HiAkSz6nxuYsiKmw2
We will also be sending him an email TODAY with over 100 comments from all of you!
THANK YOU to all of you for helping not only get SCR 4014 introduced BUT also getting it PASSED!!!

This shows the strength we have in numbers when we work together! THIS is grassroots advocacy in action!
We still have A LOT of work to do to protect these horses! Take a moment to pat yourselves on the back! Today IS a good day for the horses because of all of you!
Thank you for all of your help and 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.
