Hilary Wood is the President and Founder of Front Range Equine Rescue (FRER) and works as the Director of Programs and Operations. Front Range Equine Rescue, founded in 1997, is a 501c3 non-profit organization working to prevent the abuse and neglect of horses through rescue and education. In 2005, Front Range Equine Rescue launched its “Save the Wild Horses” campaign in direct response to the Burns Amendment.
Recently, Front Range Equine Rescue filed a lawsuit to stop the BLM’s plans to conduct surgical sterilization experiments on 225 wild horses, many in various stages of pregnancy, and potentially thousands of more horses over time. FRER’s suit contended that the BLM’s intended sterilizations would cause harm and suffering and were in violation of federal law. Six weeks later, the U.S. Department of the Interior’s Bureau of Land Management withdrew its program to perform experimental sterilization of wild mares in Oregon.
Bruce Wagman is a partner with Schiff Hardin law firm in San Francisco, and has represented FRER in all of its legal horse work. Bruce has an almost exclusive animal law focus, involving litigation, education, legislative counseling, and consultation. Bruce’s clients include numerous animal protection organizations and private individuals. He is a co-editor of the casebook Animal Law, and coauthor of A Worldview of Animal Law. He has been teaching Animal Law since 1996 and currently teaches at three Bay Area law schools. In the past five years, Bruce has focused much of his time on issues involving wild horses, horse abuse cases, and the slaughter of American horses for food.
This show will be hosted by R.T. Fitch, President of Wild Horse Freedom Federation.
