I’ve been in front of my computer all day responding to emails and giving feedback about the capture season. You should know that the permit holders are legally able to undertake the capture of the wild horses under their licence.
Although WHOAS does not agree at all with this and does have a better management plan, the permit holders have the right to partake in this.
The fight for the wild horses is not with them; it is with the Redford government and the ESRD. They are the ones who continue to ignore the citizens of Alberta, the majority of whom are wanting to see the wild horses remain on the land, free from harassment. We are also upset in the manner that they handled the implementation of this capture season and the permits they issued.
