Wild Horse Advocate Stands Up For The Wild Horses Of The West- He Writes A book On It
There’s a new book in horse country and it’s name is The Wild Horse Conspiracy. This book was written by Craig Downer, an ecologist in Nevada, and a wild horse advocate. He is against the Bureau of Land Management, and has been in matters of court challenges against Bureau of Land Management. For 40 years, Craig Downer has been an advocate. In the west, he grew up around wild horses, and he strongly objects people eliminating them, when they have done nothing to hurt them. In fact, he explains in his book, that wild horses help North America’s ecosystem.
He wrote this book in the unfairness of the situation. He explains in it the plight of the mustangs and the positive contributions they give us. He tries to protect the wild horses he lived around, announcing that, ”Over the centuries, they have borne our burdens and helped us along life’s way – which makes it doubly unfair that they should be blamed for what we humans have done. As always, they stand ready to help us do the hard work now so desperately needed to restore our shared home.” He also explains that his book helps to oppose what he names the biased machinations against the mustangs and wild horses and burros out there, in the West.
Downer studies the herds of the West, and he is also president of the Andean Tapir Fund. He has written articles, books, and action plans about the preservation of endangered species. Two of the horses he knew from the wild are now his. The names are Lightning and Princess Diane, and he is proud to be the companion of the animals he studies.
