Saving Americas Wild Horses
Your help is needed to protect wild horses
We are all outraged at the surprise inclusion of a “rider” in the omnibus appropriations bill that severely undermines the federal Wild Free-Roaming Horse and Burro Protection Act (Wild Horse Act). Slipped in by Senator Conrad Burns (R-MT) without any public discussion or hearings and no opportunity for a separate vote of the Senate, the rider directs the federal government to sell our nation's wild horses to the highest bidders, without any of the protections that currently prevent the shipment of these animals to the slaughterhouse.
We must let our federal legislators know that Americans will not stand for this. Please contact your federal Senators and Representative TODAY to urge them to reinstate protections for America’s wild horses and burros.
The Wild Free-Roaming Horse and Burro Act passed in 1971 as a result of an enormous outcry of citizens through letters and phone calls to legislators. Before this bill was enacted horses and burros were shot and slaughtered by the hundreds of thousands.
We must be tireless in making our voices heard. Please contact your federal legislators today, write letters to the editors of your local newspapers, and share this message with your friends.
1. These horses should not be taken off ranges by the BLM
2. The BLM is killing the Mustangs because they can't afford to feed them, after removing them from their homes.
3. The BLM is trying to destroy hundreds of Wild Horses to be able to use the land they live on.
