ABSTRACT
Translocal spaces are created out of the process of globalization whereby interventions such as electronic media and migration radically change social relations and breakdown the isomorphism of space, place, and culture [1]. This approach is useful in examining the controversy surrounding the mustang. This paper explores how different social constructions influence the management of mustangs as they move between the local and national level. At each cultural level, political, economic, and environmental issues converge encouraging the emphasis of some cultural constructions over others. These socially constructed images give insight into what the mustang means to a post-industrial culture and it may simultaneously contribute to the animal's eventual demise.

f2-animals-01-00027: Salt Lake City's Days of '47 Parade [16].

Mentions: For example, The Days of '47 Parade (Figure 2), an annual event in Salt Lake City, commemorates the pioneers' settling in Salt Lake. It also shows how local traditions become associated with states and appeal to tourists across the nation. The group of individuals who visit this event will return to their original location with images they believe to be true. Images used to convey the historical importance of mustangs are experienced with little concern for changes through time and space. This is what Appadurai is suggesting when he refers to the agency of the collective imagination [2]. The imagery created by these experiences assimilated with other knowledge about the West and mustangs maintains or alters beliefs.
