KEEP THEM FREE
WILD HORSES NEED YOU TO SPEAK UP
Calling all horse advocates! America’s iconic wild horses – a Congressionally-protected species – are in serious danger. Cattle ranchers want unfettered access to public land where wild horses graze, and the Bureau of Land Management plans to give it to them. The BLM plans to round up 130,000 horses from their historic ranges over the next decade. That’s more burros and mustangs than are alive today.
Even as you are reading this, the BLM is sending out helicopters, ATVs and other vehicles to herd the horses into government holding facilities where they will be “adopted” with almost no oversight. Will they go to good homes? Or will they go to the slaughterhouse? It’s anybody’s guess.
Driving wild equines into extinction so cattle ranchers can have free access to public lands is not a fair trade-off. If you agree that wild horses and burros should be wild and free, then add your name to our pledge.
