Rep. Nick Rahall, Chairman of the Committee on Natural Resources, has a soft spot for wild horses. That’s good, it’s a national disgrace the way these animals are treated. His bill just passed the house:
WASHINGTON — Galloping to the aid of the nation’s wild horses and burros, the House voted Friday to rescue them from the possibility of a government-sponsored slaughter and give them millions more acres to roam.
A great point by Rep. Rahall:
“How in the world can a federal agency be considering the massive slaughter of animals the law says they are supposed to be protecting?”
Welcome to the West Rep. Rahall, our good ol’ boys back here got a whole portfolio of lots of different animals that fit that description.
