National BLM Call-In Campaign

images-10






Originating from the Equine Welfare Alliance, representing over 290 member organizations and over 1,000 individual members worldwide in 21 countries. This campaign is strongly supported by Habitat for Horses. 

100% Guaranteed Satisfaction? For who? Welfare ranchers? Oil companies?

100% Guaranteed Satisfaction? For who? Welfare ranchers? Oil companies?

From now until Sally Jewell does something positive for our horses other than promise to “study the situation.”

Start Calls: 8am EDT when DC offices open

Hi Everyone. It’s time to take the offensive for our horses. It’s time to change the way DC does business with horse advocates. So Tuesday we start our National Call-In Campaign.

An EWA member has written a passionate plea in hopes of prompting all of us not only to make these critical calls but to recruit as many people as possible to also chime in. This is only the first step in our new and energized efforts to free the wild horses and burros and stop slaughtering American horses. Next we target congress and force them to address and pass the SAFE ACT.

At the bottom you will see the four numbers we will call UNTIL Sally Jewell and the BLM respond to our requests: halt the roundups/gathers and investigate the BLM and make ALL any CHANGES that will result in the most humane treatment for the wild horses and burros.

You will see suggestions as to what to say when you get though to her offices. These are short and to the point. And please, don’t limit yourself to one call. When you find time, call again. Our horses need everyone one of us…..and more!!

Thanks to everyone for your passion and sacrifice of time.

 ANGRY ABOUT THE BLM AND OUR DYING MUSTANGS?

Unknown-2

Please do this for me!

This intensive phone technique has worked for other just protests in the past, and our wild equines need us to make a huge effort to save them at this critical point in time!  I am not speaking about 10 or 20 people on the phones:  I am speaking about 5,000+ callers flooding those lines from 8 am to 6 pm daily!   Animal advocates just like you from throughout the USA are joining this call crusade.  Secretary Jewell hasn’t listened to anyone about our equines yet!!!  With this call crusade, we are going to strongly and persistently persuade her to listen to us and to rein in the BLM.

Log onto the Department of the Interior’s official website or, better yet, Secretary Jewell’s Twitter site.  Be prepared to see propaganda that describes the paradise that is our wilderness and her invitations to go out and enjoy it all!   Of course she doesn’t mention the oil rigs and topped mountains and mines and mustang holding pens you will see as you go out into this wonderland.  But those are the things Sally Jewell of oil industry fame was hired for-green energy efforts and to hell with all wildlife in that rigged wilderness paradise.

I AM NOT ASKING YOU-I AM BEGGING YOU-TO PLEASE NETWORK THIS PLEA TO AS MANY SYMPATHETIC FRIENDS AND FAMILY AS YOU CAN.  This is a timed effort and we need as many callers as possible.  Call these numbers every day if you can!

IT’S MUCH LATER THAN WE THINK REGARDING THIS TRAGEDY!  AN ENTIRE SPECIES HAS BEEN VIRTUALLY WIPED OUT BY OUR OWN GOVERNMENT, and you and I have paid for these murders with our taxes!  WHY?  TO CATER TO SPECIAL INTERESTS LIKE RANCHERS AND CATTLEMEN AND DRILLERS AND OTHER CORPORATE LOBBIESTS.  OUR WILD ANIMALS HAVE BEEN BETRAYED FOR MONEY.

AND THE PRESIDENT OF THE USA HAS NOT LIFTED A FINGER TO PROTECT THESE INNOCENT ANIMALS, AS HE PROMISED HE WOULD!

PLEASE PARTICIPATE IN THIS CALL CRUSADE-PLEASE!

Please be passionate but professional and persistent, as you may get pushback.

These are the numbers to Secretary Jewell’s three offices:

Main line:  1-202-208-3100

The Office of Communications:  1-202-208-6416

Appointments office:  1-202-208-7551

Branch office: 1-202-208-3181

 Hello, my name is __________ and I am calling about the BLM’s cruel treatment of our wild horses and burros.

  • “I am SHOCKED at what happened to our native horses at Fallon.  Please tell Secretary Jewell that the BLM must immediately erect  shelters for the Nevada mustangs trapped in sunbaked holding pens there”
  •  “I URGE THE SECRETARY TO STOP ALL MUSTANG AND BURRO ROUNDUPS AND GATHERS UNTIL SHE HAS LEARNED HOW HER AGENCY HAS CONSISTENTLY COMMITTED CRIMES AGAINST THESE INNOCENT WILD ANIMALS FOR 40+ YEARS.”
  • ” I URGE THE SECRETARY TO WATCH A BRUTAL BLM HELICOPTER ROUNDUPINPERSON AND TO VISIT ALL THE FILTHY BLM HOLDING PENS WHERE HORSES ARE DYING FOR LACK OF VET CARE AND NUTRITION AND EXERCISE-AND FREEDOM!”
  • “THIS SYSTEMATIC ELIMINATION OF THESE HISTORIC ANIMALS IS DISGRACEFUL AND I AM ASHAMED MY GOVERNMENT HAS ALLOWED THIS CRIME TO OCCUR FOR MORE THAN 40 YEARS-AND THAT I HAVE HAD TO PAY FOR THESE BRUTAL AND ILLEGAL ACTS WITH MY TAX MONEY”
“I WANT ACTION NOW-NO MORE EXCUSES-NO MORE LIES.  WHEN WILL THE SECRETARY SEE MY MESSAGE?  WHEN WILL SHE VISIT HER HOLDING PENS?”  WHEN WILL SHE SHOW COMPASSION TO INNOCENT LIVING CREATURES WHO ARE IN NO ONE’S WAY, EITHER ANIMAL OR HUMAN!??

    Don’t forget to remind Jewell’s people that many of the wild horses today are descended from the war horses that saved so many soldiers’ lives.

    I am listening to the BLM board meeting, the bovine fecal matter is flying like a F4 tornado. The Forestry guy has been coached well by the BLM. They rattle off numbers with utmost confidence-hard to comprehend why they, Forestry and BLM, cannot manage to count cattle. 😉

  • I called the number listed to voice my concern only to be told to call toll number…866-468-7826..I do not think these people give a rat’s a** about what is going on! Only if they were face to face for 30 days ..then maybe, just maybe they would have a different outlook…You know the old saying…Out of sight, out of mind! Shameful!

    Are we certain that these are the right phone numbers? It’s after business hours, but I can’t tell from the messages who I’ve reached or specifically what their role is regarding wild horses.

    Unfortunately, part of the problem is that it is so difficult to locate the correct contact info. I’ve certainly been frustrated before in searching for federal contact info, and I am a well-practiced researcher.

    I have called, signed numerous petitions, bombarded the Cattlemens’ Assc. with beef boycott notifications. Some sites to sign the petitions don’t take for some reason. Someone had and idea of a stuffed animal pony aerial drop over the blm and other locations. These little stuffed toys would have informative leaflets and perhaps protests attached to them. Of course the media would be notified too.

    Call this number instead of the Main Line
    202-208-7351 for Sally Jewell. I just did. I suggest being polite – not angry. You’ll catch more flies with honey!
