(DENVER) — On Sep. 2, the American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign (AWHPC), The Cloud Foundation, Return to Freedom and wild horse photographers Carol Walker and Kimerlee Curyl filed an emergency motion with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit to block a Bureau of Land Management (BLM) wild horse roundup in the Wyoming Checkerboard, proposed for this month.

The appeal to the Tenth Circuit was filed after a flurry of activity in the lower court in Wyoming yesterday, where the U.S. District Court vacated a temporary emergency injunction of the roundup because BLM agreed to voluntarily delay the action until at least September 12 to allow the Court of Appeals time to consider AWHPC’s injunction motion.

The roundup, which targets over 800 wild horses for removal from public and private lands in the Adobe Town, Salt Wells Creek and Great Divide Basin Herd Management Areas, has been twice delayed due to the lawsuit filed by the wild horse preservation groups and advocates on August 1, 2014. The action was originally scheduled to begin on August 20.
