AZ US Rep. Schweikert Signs Rep. Salmon Letter to Sec. Vilsack Regarding Impoundment of Wild Horses in Arizona

Rep. Schweikert Signs Rep. Salmon Letter to Sec. Vilsack

Secretary Tom Vilsack
Department of Agriculture
1400 Independence Ave., S.W.
Washington, DC 20250
Secretary Vilsack,
Last week, the Tonto National Forest staff published a notice warning that unauthorized horses in a portion of the forest near the Salt River near Mesa, Arizona would be rounded up and impounded without further notice beginning Friday, August 7, 2015. The notice went on to say that this round-up would continue over the next twelve months.
Wild horses have long been a part of the landscape of the American West. In fact, many acknowledge these horses to be a part of a lineage that goes back for centuries. Furthermore, wild horses have long been a draw to the American Southwest for tourists and conservationists alike.
