Hosted by Debbie Coffey, V.P. Wild Horse Freedom Federation
Our guests tonight are Carla Bowers and Bonnie Kohleriter (retired science teacher), who are wild horse and burro advocates and two of the best researchers in the advocacy. They will tell you why 83% of wild horse and burro herds are on the brink of collapse, and explain the real numbers and genetics, not the fuzzy math and inaccurate information that the BLM doles out to the public.
These women each personify the meaning of the phrase "one person can make a difference." After attending helicopter roundups of wild horses in the Twin Peaks Herd Management Area (HMA) in northeastern California about 6 years ago, and seeing the reality of the actions of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Carla and Bonnie each got involved and started to go to BLM meetings, travel to HMAs around the West, and dig for answers.
