The group rallied against the Bureau of Land Management’s removal of wild horses from public property.
Supporters said during the 1970s there were three million wild horses in the Western part of the United States. But now, just 20,000 remain.
Protesters said these horses have been rounded up and removed from the land, including from a large section of Oregon. “Half or more of the state that is cut up in herd management areas for wild horses,” said Deborah Catalina, wild horse advocate.
These wild horse advocates said they fear the horses will become completely extinct during the next few years.
