Wild Horses: A new video about an old problem

A couple of weeks ago the New York Times ran a front-page video about wild horses out west and the problem of overpopulation detailed in my book, Wild Horse Scientists. The video provides great background about the roots of this ongoing problem, dating to the original “Wild Horse Annie” legislation from the early 1970s, with some great, rare footage of both wild horses and the activists who devoted their lives (and still do) to protecting wild horses in America. I wish the video had included more about how contraception is now beginning to be implemented on a larger scale for wild horses in the American West, but it is mentioned. Recommended for anyone interested in the plight of wild horses!
