    Washington, DC (June 22, 2010) – Today, the national law firm of Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney P.C. (BIR) notified the U.S. Department of Justice that it intends to file suit over the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM’s) proposed roundup and removal of 1,855 wild horses and 210 burros in the Twin Peaks Herd Management Area (HMA) located in Northeastern California. The letter was written after extensive public comments on the roundup (available here) were submitted to the BLM by In Defense of Animals (IDA), which also filed suit in federal court last November over the controversial roundup of nearly 2,000 wild horses from the Calico Mountains Complex in northwestern Nevada.

    1. Me too! Cindy MacDonald, who writes the American Herds blog has filed a formal request for the FBI to investigate the BLM for taking out more horses from Calico than is legally permissible. She's quite correct, but whether the FBI will actually DO anything is anyone's guess. I don't trust ANY Feds anymore.
