Nonprofit Group Challenges Inhumane Experimental Surgery

  • The deer of the East Coast have been facing the very same grim realities as wild mares probably will face from those mandated by Congress to look out for their well being.

The grim reality facing these innocent wild mares and East Coast female deer includes

Invasive surgery performed in a non-sterile environment

No known studies on domestic mares for the tubal ligation procedure

But Cornell University shows that female deers’ mating season increased, they travel farther and attract more bucks because of tubal ligation

No known studies on domestic or wild mares for the Hysteroscopically-guided laser ablation procedure

Procedures to be performed on wild mares in varying stages of pregnancy

Infection, hemorrhaging, colic signs, aborted foals, potential for abnormalities in foals born, and death “If any gestational group in any procedure meets a major complication rate greater than 20 percent” then the procedure will be stopped

Complications for female deer are the same as for mares above

Major complications leading to death or the need for euthanasia are “expected” to be less than 2 percent (225 mares are slated for the research; 25 in a control group; 200 divided up for the three procedures)

Wild mares will be frightened as they are separated from their herd mates They will be even more terrified when driven into a confined chute to be sedated and restrained for the surgery

Ovarian function plays a significant role in the endocrine (hormonal) system. To destroy this biological function will damage behavior and health of surviving mares

The lawsuit was filed late yesterday in federal court in Washington D.C.

FRER’s suit contends the BLM’s intention to conduct surgical experiments on 225 wild horses, many in various stages of pregnancy, and potentially thousands more horses over time, causes harm and suffering…
