Wild horses have value. They hold great scientific, historic, ecological, emotional and economic value. Fewer than 500 wild horses remain in the entire state of Arizona. Now that we are down to the last of these historic living symbols, it is crucial that we make informed decisions based on science and based on what future generations of Americans would want us to do.
Arizonans consider these wild horses to be their rightful inheritance and a treasure to be preserved for future generations.
Legally, the Arizona US Forest Service has the discretion to protect these horses for future generations by managing them as part of its overall forest management plan.
The USFS can also choose to protect the horses by designating a territory for them under the Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act or managing the horses under the Multiple Use Sustained Yield Act of 1960.
