During October 2010, five burros were killed or had to be
euthanized due to vehicle accidents along state route 159 near Red Rock
Canyon. Also recently several wild horses have been killed or had to be
euthanized due to vehicle accidents in the Cold Creek area.
These senseless deaths are due to the fact
that the public that loves them are
loving them to death by feeding them, which
is not only dangerous to the animals and people, but it is also against
the law and you will be fined 500.00 if caught.
PLEASE help prevent these deaths to the animals we all
love and want to continue to see alive and healthy by not feeding them
and enjoy them from a safe distance. The following links have
information on how to prevent any more injuries or deaths to our
treasured wild horses and burros - please help spread the word and do
your part to keep them wild and alive!

The National Wild Horse
Association is a registered non-profit 501 (c)(3)
organization run completely by volunteers. The NWHA was established in 1971 when
Congress passed the "Wild, Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act" with one important
purpose in mind - insuring the welfare of wild horses and burros and their
survival in an ecologically balanced environment on the open range.
The NWHA has over 30 years experience with wild horses and burros and the issues
surrounding them and we strive to maintain good working relationships with
various governmental agencies through co-operative agreements with the BLM.
In 2002 - 2003, the NWHA cared
for and rehabilitated the gathered Red Rock Canyon Herd that was severely
impacted by prolonged drought, we also assisted in adopting them out locally in
2004 when the range failed to recover.
Our Mission Statement -
"The mission of National Wild
Horse Association is to ensure the welfare of wild horses and burros and
their survival, in an ecologically balanced environment on the open range."
