Introduced in Senate (05/11/2017)
This bill instructs the Department of the Interior to allow for the introduction of a small number of free-roaming wild horses from the Cape Lookout National Seashore in North Carolina as necessary to ensure the genetic diversity of the wild horse population in and around Currituck National Wildlife Refuge, consistent with the laws applicable to the refuge and seashore and the December 2014 Wild Horse Management Agreement.
Interior may enter into an agreement with the Corolla Wild Horse Fund to provide for the cost-effective management of the horses in and around the refuge while ensuring that its natural resources are not adversely impacted. Such agreement shall require the fund to pay the costs associated with:
- conducting a periodic census, and inspecting the health, of the horses;
- maintaining records of the horses living in the wild and in confinement;
- conducting the removal and placement of horses and monitoring horses removed from the Currituck County Outer Banks; and
- administering a viable population control plan for the horses.
