The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:
The budget debate is happening in Congress NOW — which means we have a limited amount of time to guarantee a pro-horse, anti-slaughter budget for 2018.
After kicking the can down the road for months, Congress now appears likely to vote in the next few weeks on spending legislation for the remainder of 2018.
That means the coming weeks will be crucial, as Congress decides between the House version (which would allow the BLM to kill as many as 90,000 wild horses and burros), and the Senate version (which continues to prohibit killing and slaughter).
We can’t stand by and let our tax dollars go towards the wholesale destruction of these magnificent creatures!
