The Wild Horse Dilemma
As early as the 1900’s, two million horses roamed wild in North America. But that time exists only in the pages of history. Progress has reduced the wild horses’ range today, replacing grassland with farms, ranches, roads, highways, and cities. Many remaining wild horses now run through publicly‐owned lands, and on private sanctuaries set‐aside for them— small corners of the range they once reigned. Since 1980, well over four million American horses have been slaughtered in the U.S., and Canada, with their meat exported for human consumption.
