AWHP: Urge BLM to Drop Wyoming Wild Mare Radio Collar Study!

The following is an update and call to action from the American Wild Horse Preservation.

Your comments are needed today to stop the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) from conducting an expensive and traumatic helicopter roundup of wild horses in the Adobe Town Herd Management Area (HMA) for the sole purpose of putting radio collars on 30 mares. The study is designed to lay the groundwork for zeroing out the HMA by showing that Adobe Town wild horses migrate into the Checkerboard sections of the HMA following removal of horses from that area. The entire premise of the study is now invalid, because the BLM has cancelled the 2016 Checkerboard roundup in response to our recet legal victory at the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals.

Tell BLM NO to wasting our tax dollars on another unnecessary and traumatic wild horse helicopter roundup and study by clicking here.

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang Rescue.

I met a beautiful little princess yesterday. She has the face of an angel. She lit up my world with the most beautiful smile, all the while I was choking back the tears. (The minute the trailer pulled in the tears started, as I knew Big Girl was leaving. After that, the tears were simply from the joy she was bringing this little girl and the difference she will make in her life.)

Lee is one of the most courageous, wonderful, amazing little girls I have ever met, and her family is just as amazing. She suffered severe burns over her body in a devastating accident, but this little girl is kicking butt, and I absolutely love her. It was an honor and a gift to meet her.

Big Girl came in with no feet, in so much pain she would not even move to her feed, and with the info that if we hit her with a crop when we rode her we might be able to make her trot.

Today she has solid wonderful hoofers. They need a little trim and some shaping, but are good hard supportive feet. She is off her pain meds completely and moves around with ease. Thank You so much for all the love, support and prayers y’all sent. YOU made this happen :)

She now will be Lee’s Therapy Horse. Both of them are loving this and the future looks bright. Lee has to do extremely painful exercises and doing them with and on Big Girl will lessen that pain and it gives her a distraction while healing.

That was our day yesterday, and one of the reasons all this work is worth it…

AWHP Update: Feds Broke Law In Wild Horse Roundup

LATE BREAKING UPDATE:

This is an update from the American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign.

We have been fighting for five long years to stop the BLM’s wipeout of Wyoming’s wild horses. Today, for the second time this week, the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals has handed wild horses a major legal victory! The court ruled that the BLM broke two federal laws when it rounded up 1,262 wild horses from the Wyoming Checkerboard in 2014.

unnamedThis is huge! It means that the BLM’s proposed 2016 Checkerboard roundup is also illegal! The BLM just notified the court that it was pulling the plug on this latest roundup of 500 wild horses, which was scheduled to start on October 18Not only that, the decision permanently prevents BLM from treating the public lands as private and allowing ranchers to dictate whether or not wild horses will be allowed to live on our public lands. 

This is our third major victory for wild horses in just over a month! On Monday, the Tenth Circuit ruled that BLM is not required to remove horses from public lands just because the population exceeds arbitrarily-established population limits. And on September 9, the BLM dropped plans to conduct dangerous surgical sterilization experiments on wild horses in Oregon, citing the lawsuit filed by AWHPC and The Cloud Foundation as the reason for its decision.
