Slaughter postponed?


The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

The Senate Appropriations votes have been delayed again — we believe now until next week. Despite the uncertainty regarding the schedule, one thing is for sure: we cannot let off the gas.

The appropriations votes will decide if we preserve protections for wild horses or allow them to be killed and sold for brutal slaughter.

We need you to keep up the pressure. Call, call, call. Email. Tweet.

1) Click here to look up your Senators’ phone numbers. You can tell them: I strongly urge you to maintain protections for Wild Horses and Burros — and oppose any effort that would allow for the euthanizing, killing or slaughter of America’s wild horses. I am part of the 80% who opposes slaughter.

2) After you call, you can send an email to your Senators on the same web-page.

3) Pressure them on social media.

If you’re on Twitter, please click the links below to reach out to the Chairs of the Appropriations Committee and Subcommittee:

If you only have Facebook, search for your Senators Facebook pages, and leave a comment in a recent post. Tell them: I am with the 80% of Americans who say #NoHorseSlaughter. Maintain protections from killing and slaughter for America’s wild horses.

We’ll keep you updated via email and on our Facebook page throughout the coming weeks.

For the horses and burros,

Suzanne Roy
