Hello and Happy Tuesday!
Things have been busy!
We mentioned a few weeks ago that the Medora City Council drafted and passed their own resolution asking Theodore Roosevelt National Park to allow the horses to stay! The City of Medora would no doubt feel the impact of the parks proposed action to eliminate the herd more than any other part of the state!
While our North Dakota state legislators UNANIMOUSLY passed the state resolution asking Theodore Roosevelt National Park to allow the horses to stay, the Medora City Council was evenly split on their decision. THANK YOU to Mayor Todd Corneil for breaking that tie in favor of passing the resolution!
As soon as the Medora City Council meeting minutes are available, we will share the link with you on our social media page.
Chasing Horses Wild Horse Advocates helped draft the resolution and we were at the two city council meetings where the resolution was discussed where we continued our Fight for the Spirit of the Badlands!
This resolution, like the resolution that passed in the last North Dakota State Legislative Assembly, does NOT mean the horses are safe! It DOES add more to our advocacy toolkit as we continue our fight to save these horses now and into the future!
THANK YOU to the members of the Medora City Council who understand the impact these horses have not only within our state, but specifically in the community of Medora that will be directly impacted by the park’s decision.
A copy of the signed resolution is included in this blog post below.
Thank you for your support and have a GREAT day!
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.
