Make Sure Your Representatives Have Signed


The following article is a post from the American Wild Horse Preservation.

Make sure your representatives in Congress have signed our Keep Wild Horses Wild Pledge. Since you’re a constituent, we’re hoping you can send them an email to request that they sign, because wild horses need their support now more than ever.

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is out of money and holding space and cannot round up more horses from the wild. But drought and widespread livestock grazing are creating a crisis, and ranchers and their allies in Congress are lining up against wild horses. They’re pushing the BLM to shoot horses on the range and sell those stockpiled in holding facilities “without restriction,” which is code for slaughter.

We, the grassroots army of citizens who care about America’s mustangs and burros, are the only thing standing between these national icons and tragedy both on and off the range. It’s critically important that we line up our own support in Congress for safe and sustainable reforms.

By signing the pledge, members of Congress agree to oppose any effort to slaughter wild horses and support efforts to manage wild horses in the wild, where they belong. This should be a no brainer.

Please make sure your representatives know where you stand on this issue and ask them to stand with you by signing the Keep Wild Horses Wild Pledge.
