MUSTANG MONUMENT: A PERMANENT HOME FOR WILD HORSES?


SAVING AMERICA’S BY DUTCH HENRY


MUSTANGS T


he American Mustang is one of our proudest


and most magnifi cent symbols of the Ameri- can spirit. Even the US Congress declared this to be true in 1971 when they recognized Mus- tangs as “Living symbols of the historic and pioneer spirit of the West, which continue to contribute to


the diversity of life forms within the Nation and enrich the lives of the American people.” How then, have they come to be considered “feral nuisances” that need to be gathered and removed? A lot of people ponder that question, and many are working tirelessly to help the plight of the noble Mustang.


Madeleine Pickens is one of those people. She fi nds that question unbearable and is devoted to fi nding solutions.
