There isn't a law saying it's legal, but there isn't a law against it either.

I thought this comedy video regarding PETA was hilarious btw!

So Or. Has no law against people starving,neglect, etc. horses? If that's actually true I really hope groups like PETA work to get some passed.

No ones making you like peta or even be a part of peta so why knock it if you don't have to,why not focus on the good they do.
Not everyone has the same opinions.
Sure you don't have to agree with everything they do but what animal group can you not find faults with,everyones got a problem with something.

OKie Dokie... before this thread turns ugly, please everyone, lets respect each other's opinions. If someone types a response that you can't reply to in a civil manner, please don't respond.

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

There is laws against neglecting your animals and abusing them but apparently abandoning a horse in a field is not against the law. I don't know if it's because we have wild horses already or if they just overlooked it.

I once saw the county officials close down an animal refuge and put down 400 animals (about 80 horses) because they wanted to use the land for something else... kind of random but this whole topic made me remember it and how the owner of the sanctuary begged me to take the last 6 horses that were going to be put to sleep before they could come back to do it.

I'm confused about the law in Or. So your saying people can abandon a horse to starve etc. as long as its in a feild? I assume they have to at least own the feild?

As far as I know it doesn't have to be their own Field. Maybe officials think that since there is grass everywhere in Oregon and wild horses that they won't starve. I haven't checked the law books, it's just something quite a few horse owners around the area mentioned (they are people trying to find homes for these abandoned animals). I think it's just been overlooked. You don't have to be PETA to help animals.

I agree you don't have to be PETA to help animals and most people who do so aren't. I can't imagine land owners allowing people to just dump off livestock on their land. If someone was to dump horses off in my feilds you can bet hell would be raised. How much crop damage do they have in Or. From this?

I have heard of people dumping horses (not necissarily in OR. I don't remember wear). And I'm pretty sure that it's frowned upon most places. Usually, from what I have read, they round up the horse and it either gets sold to auction, impounded (well..not really, but something like it), or sent to a rescue if the owner can not be found.

Similar to what County said, even if people thought these domesticated horses could survive running around on someones fields, they would stop it because those fields generally belong to someone who isn't going to be happy with a random horses taking up shop there.

I am all for animal advocacy groups, I just don't think violent protest is the way to get results. Buts that my personal opinion to most things.
