Wild horses and burros are being rounded up by helicopters and kept in packed government holding pens. The latest roundup involved almost 500 horses from the Nevada- Oregon border. Animal groups tried to fight this roundup in court saying it violated federal law but they lost in court. Many advocates spent money in auction buying these horses in order to rescue them.
Jane Velez-Mitchell speaks to Suzanne Roy, the Director of the American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign and Arlo Crutcher the Vice Chairman of the Ft. McDermitt Paiute and Shoshone Tribes.
