The following is an Action Alert from the American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign.
For more than 500 years, this rare population of Spanish Colonial mustangs has survived hurricanes, nor’easters and encroaching development, but these cherished horses may not survive the genetic crisis they now face unless legislation is passed to protect them.
Please take action today to ask your Senators to pass the Burr-Tillis Amendment to the Energy Policy Modernization Act.
The Amendment will protect the Corolla horses by increasing the allowable size of this herd to a more genetically sustainable level.
Birth defects are becoming more frequent in this herd. Tiny foals are suffering and the future of the entire population is in jeopardy!
The Burr-Tillis amendment may come before the Senate for a floor vote as early as today. . . . There is not a moment to waste to save these historic mustangs.
