The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:
In just a few days, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is set to begin an inhumane and unnecessary roundup of Wyoming’s McCullough Peaks wild horses.
This bait trap operation would remove up to 41 innocent mustangs from their home and would threaten the genetic health and longevity of this historic wild horse herd. We need to speak up against this disastrous plan before it’s too late.
That’s why we’ve been ramping up our awareness efforts, both in Wyoming and nationwide, to stop the BLM from moving forward with the McCullough Peaks roundup.
We’ve launched billboards in Cody, Wyoming just outside of where the McCullough Peaks wild horses live:
We’ve also launched billboards in Cheyenne, Wyoming where BLM leadership is located, and mobile billboards in Washington, DC which are driving around the National Mall — including to the U.S. Department of the Interior — to pressure policymakers into action:
To bolster our awareness, we are also running ads in local newspapers, such as the Wyoming Tribune Eagle and Casper Star-Tribune to spread the word about this pointless and cruel roundup. And finally, we launched TV ads on streaming services to bring national awareness to this issue.
We’re doing all we can to make sure the McCullough Peaks wild horses stay wild and free – but we need your help. Here’s how you can help STOP the roundup of the McCullough Peaks wild horses:
