Roundup season is almost here, and the BLM is coming for me and my herd…
The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:
I need your help.
Roundup season begins tomorrow and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is planning on coming for me and my herd soon. The American Wild Horse Campaign (AWHC) says that the BLM is planning to roundup nearly 2,000 of my friends and family from our home in the 2.1 million acre Triple B Complex in Eastern Nevada.
I’ll be honest, I’m scared. Helicopter roundups aren’t just cruel, they can be deadly. I’ve heard that wild horses can get stuck in traps, break their legs, or worse — get killed after the BLM chased them with helicopters. Meredith, I really don’t want to join that list. That’s why we need organizations like AWHC who fight to protect horses like me.
AWHC is working hard to stop the BLM from continuing its use of brutal helicopter roundups. Their fertility vaccine program is a MUCH better alternative. After all, it’s safe, effective, and most importantly, keeps us at home in the wild. Can you make a donation to AWHC to help them keep fighting for us?
Powerful ranchers in Nevada hold permits to graze their animals on our lands — they want most of us gone.
AWHC says the goal of this cruel roundup is to reduce our population so that these privately-owned cattle and sheep can continue to graze within our Complex each year. The ranchers want us eliminated because then they get to graze their animals for really cheap — discounted by your tax dollars too! These powerful interests have lobbied in Washington for decades, so they hold a lot of influence, influence that hurts horses like the ones in my herd and thousands more across the West.
That all doesn’t seem very fair, and to be honest, Meredith, I’d really like to keep my whole family together on the lands we’ve called home for centuries. That’s why I’m so glad you support an organization like AWHC.
They are standing up for me and my family both in Washington and out in the field. We need them – and they need you. Without your support, they would not be able to do the necessary work to fight for wild horses like me. Can you make a contribution to support their efforts today?
Thank you for standing by my side.
