USNPS sued over management of feral horses at Cumberland Island NS

Cumberland Island National Seashore's feral horses not only are damaging the seashore's environment and two federally protected species but are not being humanely managed by the National Park Service and should be removed from the seashore, according to a lawsuit filed against the federal government.

The 65-page filing (attached below), which names Interior Secretary Deb Haaland and Park Service officials among the defendants, alleges that the island's horses have suffered for at least a quarter-century because of Park Service neglect. During the same period, the defendants were aware of the negative impacts the horses were having on the environment.
