The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:
Popular and beloved wild horse herds are being targeted for mass helicopter roundups and removals. Pregnant mares in Oregon are facing horrific surgeries that will cause pain, suffering and abortions of their unborn foals. Environmental laws enacted to allow the public to speak out against proposals like these are being trampled. We must fight back.
The threats against our wild horses and burros have never been steeper. The policies the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is promoting could literally spell the end for these icons on our Western public lands.
We only have a few weeks to raise the money we need to launch our campaign to fight back. We must build a firewall of protection and set legal precedents for wild horses and burros against these devastating assaults.
Together, we can make a lasting difference for America’s cherished wild horses and burros.
