The Heber wild horses are being illegally shot after months of roping, trapping, and even wrangling to steal them off their land.

******REWARD OFFERED FOR ANY INFORMATION LEADING TO THE ARREST AND PROSECUTION OF PERSON(S) RESPONSIBLE FOR THESE ACTIONS******

An anonymous donor has put up $2,500 for reward and additional donations are coming in for information that will help catch the perpetrators of this federal crime.

Two Heber Wild Horse young stallions were found shot dead on10-13-2018 on Forest Service Rd 50 around mile marker 8. We were told the Navajo County Sheriff’s Dept did an investigation today and turned their information over to Forest Service law enforcement. We were also told by Arizona Game and Fish that they were notified yesterday and that Forest Service law enforcement had been out to investigate.

Please, if anybody knows anything about this, please contact us at 541.315.6650.

If you were in the area yesterday and saw any vehicles or heard gunshots, please let us know.

If you’ve heard any rumors, let us know. We want to stay on top of this and make sure a thorough investigation is done.

Somebody knows something, please keep your eyes and ears open and if you head out to the forest be careful! There are a lot of sick people in this world.

The Heber Herd is a federally protected herd.

For too long the Forest Service has NOT taken these acts seriously, and perhaps even encouraged them.

We have receipts gained through FOIA, whereby the FS contracted with local ranchers through the years to gather and ship some of the herd to slaughter. And there has been a history of horses being caught, wrangled, from the Forest for decades.

This year we brought you to notice that horses were trapped without water (between livestock fences on the wild horse territory), and we worked with FS to get them to allow us to haul water in, and we provided the tanks, manpower, and water.

Recent months have seen suspicous horse trailers in the Forest, horses caught in a trap, and horses with ropes around their necks.

It is long past time for Richard Madril and Steve Best of the Forest Service to demand that the Forest Service Law Enforcement find out who is responsible for these actions and put an end to them. THAT is the job of the Forest Service and Mr. Madril and Mr. Best we support your efforts to do that job!
