Wild Horses

May 21, 1987

We, the taxpayers, are paying $9.3 million a year to feed and maintain wild horses in California. Yet we must pay $125 for these horses if we are to adopt one. The horses that aren't purchased are "euthanized."

There are probably hundreds of organizations that these horses can be donated to such as summer camps for children. Also, the camps for handicapped children would certainly appreciate these animals. There are also many farmers, Indian reservations, I could go on.

Many people would love to have these wild horses but cannot afford to pay for something that they are already paying for. Horses are beautiful animals that should not be sentenced to death!
