The Forest Service argues that the horses are not wild, they're escaped livestock, and authorities are simply "trying to return them to their rightful owners," KPHO reports.
But the Salt River Wild Horse Management Group is adamant that these are true wild horses, deserving of their land and their lives, and they are trying desperately to save them.
Whether or not some of the horses were born wild or are "escaped" animals shouldn't even matter when it comes to saving them - no horse deserves to be torn from her family and killed.
"The time is now to change the course of history," the group posted on its Facebook page. "Don't let them become History!"
