The Forest Service has removed the Impound Notice for the nearly 100 wild horses roaming in the Salt River area of the Tonto National Forest. The Forest Service has been meeting with advocacy groups to determine a long term plan for the horses that does not include rounding up and removal, but with the threat of the impound notice over their heads, the advocacy groups have been quite nervous. The Forest Service announced it’s plan to remove the impound notice after receiving political pressure from nearly all of the Arizona U.S. House delegation. It is illegal for the Forest Service to remove wild horses without an impound notice.
“We are really, really grateful for this before the holidays, because everyone was getting very nervous,” Simone Netherlands, president of the Salt River Wild Horse Management Group, said.
