News & Alerts
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is at it again. For the third time, despite multiple federal lawsuits and public outrage, the agency is planning dangerous surgical sterilization experiments on wild mares in Oregon.
Warning: this may be hard to read.
In the proposed “ovariectomy via colpotomy,” procedure, a veterinarian makes an incision in the mare’s vagina, inserts his arm into the vaginal cavity, manually locates the ovaries and rips them out using an “ecraseur,” a rod-like device with a chain on the end. The painful procedure will subject mares to the risk of infection, hemorrhage, and evisceration.
The BLM has only provided until June 12 to send in comments opposing the proposal. And if we don’t take action today, these experiments could mean living hell for helpless horses in Oregon.
The prior action you took helped us stop them before, and we can do it again – together. Please, take action today.
