Singer Sheryl Crow is trying to stop the US government from relocating wild horses from their native lands in the plains in the West to the East.

The government claims the horses have become too numerous, and the ranges of Nevada can no longer support them. Plans have been made to transport around 25,000 to new pastures.

“I think there has to be a better way than taking them away from their native lands,” said Crow. "I feel so passionate about the issue because wild horses are one of the last remaining ties to the land as it was and our history in America.

“My main concern is that horse numbers are not dwindled down to the point at which they could become extinct.”

Crow has about 20 horses on her ranch near Nashville, and is joined in her fight by Willie Nelson, Lily Tomlin, Bill Maher and Ed Harris.
