Thank you for your recent article stating that the wild-horse roundup in northern Nevada had been canceled (“Wild horse roundup in Nevada is canceled amid outrage, fears over ‘stealth’ slaughter,” Web, Aug. 8). Tragically, the U.S. Bureau of Land Management went back on its word and rounded up hundreds of wild horses Aug. 9, 10 and 11, in its usual terrifying-to-the-horses way — by helicopter.

The hundreds of horses rounded up are now in open corrals on the McDermid Indian Reservation, without shade or water. This betrayal by the Bureau of Land Management must be investigated. The agency continues to round up the most beautiful wild horses in North America to sell them to slaughter, thereby driving to extinction a priceless genetic line of our American heritage.
