BLM suspends the Tuscarora gather, after 7 mustangs die!!
Soaring high desert temperatures, dehydrate mustangs chased for miles by two helicopters to a trap where seven died. One was euthanized after its leg became fractured in the catch pen. Horses were diagnosed with dehydration, brain swelling and colic!! Advocates predicted injuries, death and health problems, due to the terrain and high temperatures. BLM also broke its own protocal, by beginning this gather ahead of the proper time frame stated in their own books, which is in a specific time frame after foaling season.
