Safe Mode: On
Wild Horse Play in Arizona

NOT MY VID - There has recently been an update added to this video about these horses.
UPDATE:

Future of Salt River wild-horse herd unclearHorses roaming along the lower Salt River in
the Tonto National Forest have been dazzling enthusiasts and confounding
officials for years.
"These wild horses belong to the citizens of this great country,"
says horse advocate Becky Standridge, who has been tracking and
photographing the horses for more than a year. "They are inspiring and a
treasure. They are part of the American history."
But no government agency wants to claim the herd, which Standridge estimates between 75 and 100 horses.

The animals are not protected since federal officials consider the
herd feral. Equine advocates fear they might be rounded up, auctioned
off and possibly end up slaughtered as "trespass livestock."
"As long as the Forest Service declares these horses feral

      I never understood it either. I love how "humane" people find so many excuses to destroy animals to "help" them. I'm fairly confident not a single animal feels they will be better off with their balls chopped off or euthanized.

  • Hard to watch this, too much moving of the camera. Need to be stabilized to be watchable.

    • @Jonestown Punch _Speaking of alligators, ever watch "Swamp People"? As for these horses, they have a commercial value again since Obama repealed the ban on horse slaughter in the U.S.

  • I met a helicopter pilot who decades ago used to herd mustangs, a form of horse, with a copter and run them off a cliff. He's somehow determine the location then contact the company he was working for so they could send trucks to pick up the carcasses and take them in to be processed as dog food. Don't know if it was near Salt River or not but somewhere in the west.

    • @TMoray1

      Most likely he was doing that in Colorado. That is where most of the wild horse helicopter herding and euthanizing happens in America. Aso, a mustang is just the word for a wild male horse.

    • @jeru I thought they were a little smaller than "normal" and the nose was shaped slightly different. I've never seen any except in pictures.
