Whistleblowers brought wild horse ranch problems to attention of officials, public

By Robert Slocum

Those who helped call attention to starving and neglected horses on a ranch near Lantry are glad the horses are receiving better care, but are waiting to see how the situation plays out before they can say they are satisfied. Colleen Burns, a former employee of the International Society for the Protection of Mustangs and Burros, made an online post of text and more than a dozen graphic images in September. The document shared entries from Burns’ journal detailing horses dying from starvation and neglected wounds, among other problems. Within days, news outlets from around the state and beyond were reporting on the situation. The images from Burns’ document showed emaciated horses, some deceased, some too weak to stand and others with medical issues.
