Letter: Thank you North Dakota legislators for helping the wild horses
"The horses and longhorn cattle are an integral part of the history and culture of this state," Fargo resident Birgit Pruess writes.
Thank you to all the senators and representatives of the North Dakota Legislature for passing Senate Concurrent Resolution 4014 in support of the Theodore Roosevelt National Park horses and longhorn cattle. The horses and longhorn cattle are an integral part of the history and culture of this state and a major tourist attraction, contributing to the economy of the areas surrounding the south and north units of the park, especially Medora.
Thank you Gov. Doug Burgum for supporting the horses and longhorn cattle and offering help to Theodore Roosevelt National Park.
Thank you Sens. Kevin Cramer and John Hoeven for your past interactions with the National Park Service Director. I hope to see more of this engagement to see the project through to the end.
Rep. Kelly Armstrong, please revise your past stand on this topic and help us save our horses and longhorn cattle and through these animals the economy of Medora and surrounding areas.
Superintendent Angie Richman, please listen to the people in the state and country and to our representatives. We are the taxpayers and this is our park. The horses and longhorn cattle are our animals.
Birgit Pruess is a resident of Fargo.
