Sick and old wild horses and burros and foals are terrorized, injured, and killed in helicopter roundups.
They are chased in extreme heat in the summer and below freezing temperatures in winter. They are driven countless miles — no one knows for sure how many, because no one monitors the helicopters.
Heavily pregnant mares are sometimes pursued so long and hard that they miscarry their foals, sometimes on the run, due to the physical stress caused by the chase.
We know how the Bureau of Land Management uses helicopters is inhumane — and The Cloud Foundation is dedicated to changing BLM policy, to get cameras on the roundup helicopters, trap sites, and roundup holding facilities.
Just like law enforcement cameras, this would help to ensure transparency, accountability, and added protection for our wild horses and burros.
