“This is seen as a ground-breaking move…”
SUPAI, Ariz. – Known for its turquoise blue waterfalls, more than 25,000 hikers visit the Havasupai Falls at the bottom of the Grand Canyon every year.
A woman who has been leading a tireless effort for years to stop the abuse of horses and mules which carry tourists’ heavy gear, ice chests, and camping supplies down nearly 10 miles to the bottom of the Grand Canyon says she and a tribal leader are now in amicable talks to improve the health of the pack animals.
“A tribe animal control officer says she has paid someone to fill the 300 gallon water trough at the top of the trailhead into the canyon for the next three months,” said Susan Ash of the advocacy group SAVE Havasu Horses. “She has also given SAVE and other groups permission to bring hay and even more water.”
