New Agreement for Virginia Range Mustangs Fertility Control Program

On Tuesday, AWHC and the Nevada Department of Agriculture signed a new agreement to implement a humane fertility control management program for the Virginia Range horses. The program aims to reduce population growth rates in the historic herd, which lives in a 300,000-acre range increasingly impacted by rapid development in the northern Nevada area. Our program’s certified darters will begin working this week in cooperation with the tech company, Blockchains, LLC – the largest landowner in the Virginia Range — to deliver the PZP immunocontraceptive vaccine to wild horses in Innovation Park in Storey County! Read more about this critically important program below.

 

AB 128 Passes Out of California’s Assembly Parks and Wildlife Committee

AB 128, a bill to increase protections from slaughter for California’s wild and domestic horses cleared its first hurdle on Tuesday when it passed out of the California Assembly Parks, Water and Wildlife Committee on a 10-1 vote (with 3 abstentions). AWHC is proud to sponsor this bill in conjunction with bill author Assemblyman Todd Gloria, who has been a leading voice for the welfare of California’s horses and an outspoken opponent of the federal government’s plan to sell California wild horses from the Devil’s Garden Territory without limitation on slaughter. Read more about the bill and the latest developments below.

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

We wanted to let you know that on Friday, April 5 we had an incredible turnout at a rally at the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) state office in Salt Lake City to stop the roundup of Utah’s Onaqui wild horses. 

People from all over the country – including New York, Florida, Tennesse, Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada, and California – joined a fabulous group of Utahns to be a voice for these horses. Watch a video of the rally below!

After the rally, AWHC and our coalition partner, the Salt River Wild Horse Management Group, delivered 100,000 of your signatures and met with top BLM Utah officials about collaborating for the humane management of the Onaqui wild horses.

The BLM is to be commended for its work to develop existing fertility control program there (in conjunction with Wild Horses of America Foundation) and its openness to collaborating with our groups to further expand the program as a humane alternative to large-scale roundups from this Herd Management Area (HMA).

The meeting opened a positive dialogue between our groups and the BLM, and we plan to meet again with the Utah officials in 1-2 weeks to further discuss how we can collaborate for the benefit of the beloved Onaqui wild horses.

Thank you for taking the time to sign our petition. You have made a difference!

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

This is the most important week in our campaign to save the famed wild horses of Onaqui in Utah.

We’ve got a lot going on – and we need your support. Whether it’s on the ground in Utah or from afar, every action you can take this week will make a difference.

  • Friday is our rally at the BLM office in Salt Lake City, UT. Please join us as we protest the round-up of 80% of one of the most famous wild horse herds in America, and tell the BLM that their plan of action is unacceptable.
  • Our petition to save the Onaqui herd has gathered almost 97,000 signatures, and counting! Help us hit 100k! Please share with your networks, as we need as many signatures as possible! 
  • Also on Friday, we’ll be holding a Digital Sit-in to #SaveOnaqui. Support the movement by sharing on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter with the #SaveOnaqui hashtag. More on this later.
  • You can help show your support for the Onaqui wild horses by purchasing our Onaqui Apparel, proceeds of which will go directly to saving the Onaqui herd.

A majority of Americans oppose rounding up wild horses and using taxpayer money to put them in holding pens for life. And while the BLM has come after so many of America’s wild herds, the Onaqui wild horses hold a special place in our nation’s hearts.

As one of the most viewed wild horse herds, they not only offer a unique opportunity for people to witness the magic of horses roaming free in the wild, they also contribute to the local community by bringing in thousands of tourists every year.

Make a donation this week to support our efforts to Save Onaqui.

Thank you,

Suzanne

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

Kimerlee Curyl is a renowned fine art photographer who has been working amongst the Onaqui wild horses since 2009. She is one of many artists who has come to know the herd very well, in a place that now feels like home.

We can’t let these beautiful horses, who have roamed Utah since the 1800s, lose their families and their homes in a BLM roundup.

Chip in now to help us rally the public and political support needed to fight the BLM’s cruel plan for the famed Onaqui horses.

Kimerlee explains just how important these horses are:

“My first journey to the area was in 2009. While numerous visits have followed, I will never forget the magic and mystery of that initial trip. The Onaqui horses have called the historic Pony Express Trail in Utah home for generations. To remove them from this territory – one they once helped man traverse in the name of special interest – is a betrayal to our past, especially when access to cost-effective solutions have been offered and declined by the BLM. They are woven into the fabric of this landscape and deserve solutions to be expanded upon. They deserve to be here.”

Photographers like Kimerlee come from all over the world to visit and photograph these wild horses. But in a few short months, 80% of the herd could be gone forever.

Update: Petition to Save Onaqui

1

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

The BLM is full steam ahead with plans to round up and capture 80% of the famous Onaqui herd in Utah. But we can’t let up.

We still need 5,318 more signatures to reach our goal before April 5, when we are delivering our petition and holding a rally outside of the BLM’s Salt Lake City office. We need your help.

Add your name now, and take a stand to protect the Onaqui wild herd.

There are only 486 wild horses in the Onaqui herd. If the BLM gets their way, only 120 horses will remain on over 240,000 acres. 

There are humane ways to manage wild horse populations that the BLM is just not using. Instead, the agency wants to move forward with an inhumane roundup, using helicopters to chase the horses for miles. Once captured, the horses will be forced to spend the rest of their lives in holding pens and pastures, adding to the millions of dollars taxpayers are forced to spend on this ineffective and mismanaged federal program.

The Onaqui horses are irreplaceable – not just to America as a symbol of our freedom and our heritage, but to the local communities who benefit from the tourism dollars brought by wild horse admirers and photographers.

Please help us keep the Onaqui wild horses wild. Sign our petition to save this iconic herd from devastation.

News & Alerts

This week, we launched a campaign to save the Onaqui wild horses in Utah. To truly understand how special these horses are, you have to see them for yourself.

Watch this video about the Onaqui wild horse herd, and share it with your friends to raise awareness of their perilous situation.

 

The BLM plans to round up 80% of the herd and put them in holding pens for life – because they say the horses are overpopulating the area. But it’s not true and it doesn’t have to be like this. Cattle and sheep grazing consumes the majority of the resources on these public lands, and we have safe and humane solutions to control wild horse populations that the BLM has failed to implement adequately. Instead, millions of dollars in taxpayer money will go toward cruel roundups and confinement.

These horses deserve to be with their families and to roam free in the wild where they belong. This is an incredibly unique, tightly-knit society of horses. We can’t let the government destroy their herd.

These iconic wild horses need all of the teammates and fans they can get right now. Watch and share our video, and help us spread the word to save the Onaqui mustangs.

Thank you for helping save these national treasures. Let’s #SaveOnaqui.

America’s most famous wild horses are under attack

If you want to go see wild horses, chances are you’ll find yourself just outside Salt Lake City, visiting the Onaqui wild horse herd of Utah. They’re among the most famous (and most photographed) wild horses in the country.

Now the Bureau of Land Management is about to destroy the herd and roundup more than 90% of these iconic horses.

This is a fight we have to win. Sign the petition now and demand that the BLM preserve the Onaqui wild horse herd.

This is the beginning of a multi-week campaign to stop this devastating roundup. We’ll be rallying supporters, lobbying lawmakers, and activating the local community that treasures these horses.

We have to stop this roundup:

  • Utah would lose an important ecotourism resource. The horses attract thousands of tourists and photographers a year. Several of these horses have become so well-known, they’ve been given names – like the beloved “Old Man,” a 28-year-old stallion enjoying his elder years with the herd.
  • The roundups are devastating and cruel — using helicopters to run horses, including foals (babies), for miles until they’re exhausted. Many are injured, breaking their legs and necks, crashing into fences. Some die from their injuries and from exhaustion.
  • Taxpayers shouldn’t spend millions on this unnecessary abuse.Proven, humane, and cost-effective management solutions already exist. In fact, the American Wild Horse Campaign has offered to work with the BLM to expand and fund a proven fertility control program to reduce population growth without removing horses from their homes on the range.

Add your name: Stop the brutal roundup of America’s most iconic wild horses!

Speak up for Oregon’s Warm Springs Wild Horses

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is seeking public comments on a plan for the Warm Springs Herd Management Area (HMA) in Oregon. This HMA was recently the site of a large roundup that removed 100 percent of the wild horses living there, including 100 mares who were slated to be used in an experimental surgical sterilization study. That plan was dropped after a federal judge issued a Preliminary Injunction in response to litigation by filed AWHC, The Cloud Foundation, and the Animal Welfare Institute. The BLM’s new plan is to return just 66 of the 846 horses removed from the HMA and treat all released mares with PZP fertility control. Bottom line: The BLM is releasing too few horses to maintain a healthy, genetically viable population in the Warm Springs HMA. Please take action with us below!

 

Forest Service Hands Reins of Wild Horse Management in CA to Cattle Interests

For the last several months, our team has been investigating how livestock interests in northern California’s Modoc National Forest took control of U.S. Forest Service policy regarding the management of federally-protected wild horses. Our reporting shows a trail of money, extremist politics and junk science leading to the current situation in which the Forest Service intends to sell federally-protected wild horses without limitation on slaughter for the first time in history. Read more about the situation and the disturbing precedent it sets for special interest takeover of public lands policy by clicking below.

 

Rescue Video: The ‘Alabama 5’

When we learned in April 2018 that five Virginia Range mustangs who had been adopted to a small sanctuary in Alabama were sold to a notorious kill buyer, we sprang into action. Just days before they shipped for slaughter, we rescued them. Thanks to supporters like you — and to Chilly Pepper Mustang Rescue and Freedom Reigns Equine Sanctuary — this small family is safe. Just four years ago, these mustangs were roaming free in Nevada. When we reached them in Alabama, they were in rough shape — neglected, traumatized and very thin. Today, they’re back home in the West looking happy and healthy. Watch their story in our latest video, and then share with your friends and family!

Take Action for Wyoming’s Wild Horses

The BLM is accepting public comments on a Herd Management Area (HMA) and roundup plan for the Fifteen Mile HMA in Wyoming. The plan calls for removing over 300 horses to reduce the population to the low “Appropriate” Management Level (AML) of 70 horses, skewing the sex ratios in favor of males, and maintaining the population number in the future with more roundups and removals. 

The BLM plans to significantly reduce the existing horse population even though the agency acknowledges that the horses are healthy at their current population level of 404. Additionally, little active livestock grazing is occurring in this HMA so conflicts with ranchers are minimal. Instead of continuing the same failed approach to wild horse management, the BLM should maintain the Fifteen Mile wild horse population at a healthy number by implementing a robust fertility control program to humanely manage the population of wild horses in the wild. Tell the BLM to implement a humane and sustainable plan for the Fifteenmile horses – Take Action today!

 

Devil’s Garden Mustangs are Looking for Homes

Wild horses captured from the Devil’s Garden Wild Horse Territory in the Modoc National Forest near Alturas, California last fall are still in need of homes. These are the horses that the U.S. Forest Service wants to sell without limitation on slaughter, but our lawsuit has so far blocked this action. Currently 43 horses age 10 and over are for sale with limitation on slaughter, and 20 horses age 9 and under are available for adoption for $125. Meanwhile, our partner sanctuary, Montgomery Creek Ranch (MCR), has six halter trained two-yea- olds also from Devil’s Garden available for adoption. If these beautiful youngsters get adopted, MCR will be able to take in additional Devil’s Garden horses in need of homes. Learn more below.

 

New AWHC Urges ‘No Vote’ on NM Legislation

AWHC is fighting for New Mexico’s wild horses by opposing state legislation that would put the fate of non-federally protected wild horses in the hands of the New Mexico Livestock Board, which has a documented history of anti-wild horse actions and support for horse slaughter. Although the bill has been amended to prevent the Livestock Board from killing wild horses removed from the range, it allows the board to make decisions about removal of wild horses from public and private land, a situation that would spell the end for free-roaming wild horses in New Mexico.

An Important Update on the Palomino Valley Legal Action

1

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

A lead stallion who eluded capture but lost his band and died of a broken heart. Photo by Maureen Daane

We have difficult news to report. The U.S. District Court in Nevada has issued a negative ruling in our lawsuit against the Paiute Pyramid Lake Tribe, the Nevada Department of Agriculture and Cattoor Livestock Roundups. At issue is the illegal roundup of at least 300 horses in the Palomino Valley area northeast of Reno.

The judge ruled that the Tribe and the State have sovereign immunity from lawsuits and that NDA employees and tribal members acting as agents of those entities are also immune from suit. The judge did keep the Temporary Restraining Order issued on January 17 in place prohibiting the slaughter of a privately owned horse named Lady, who was caught up in the roundup, pending an evidentiary hearing to be scheduled within 14 days.

While this ruling is disappointing, it does not change the facts of this case or our commitment to seeking justice for the residents who were traumatized by the surprise raid that was conducted by members of the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe and Cattoor Livestock Roundups on January 4 and 5, 2019, and for the horses who lost their freedom and their lives.

These include the grey stallion pictured above, admired in Palomino Valley for so many years, who somehow eluded capture but lost his band and wandered back to the land he called home, thin, alone and forlorn. Yesterday, he was found dead. The resident who found him, and knew his family, is convinced that he died of a broken heart.

Read more about this situation here.

We will keep you posted as this situation develops.

This lawsuit will decide

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

On Monday, we’ll be in court to stand up for a group of both wild and privately owned horses who were wrongfully rounded up in Palomino Valley in Nevada. The hearing will determine whether the laws of the state are upheld and whether the horses can be saved, or if, heartbreakingly, they will go to slaughter.

This emergency situation was not anticipated, but we couldn’t stand idly by. Now we need your help to support our legal team’s fight.

Residents of Nevada’s Palomino Valley lost horses and burros during a multi-day roundup coordinated by members of the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe – who illegally stampeded horses with motorcycles, ATVs and on horseback off private property where they had been living for years.

Several privately owned horses and burros were taken in the process. Some were released and have wandered home, but Lady, a small bay mare who belongs to Sparks, NV resident Colleen Westlake, remains missing.

Photo above of “Lady”

Right now, we don’t know where Lady and the other horses are. We do know that 238 of them were sold to a notorious kill buyer in New Mexico. We’re holding out hope that they haven’t already been shipped across the border to Mexico for slaughter.

Our team is working with the residents whose private property rights were violated to hold the tribe and the Nevada Department of Agriculture accountable for this illegal surprise roundup.

Please, support our team as we go to court on Monday to stand up for Lady and the rest of the horses rounded up at Palomino Valley, and for all our critical work to save wild horses in Nevada and throughout the West.

Right now, we are the voice for these horses. We are their advocates, and their lawyers. Thank you for standing with them and with us.

We believe Lady and the other horses are in a New Mexico feedlot awaiting shipment to slaughter.

Please help us secure the cooperation of the State of Nevada to save Lady from slaughter. 

Deliver this message to the below officials:

“Please help save Lady from slaughter. Please have the Nevada Department of Agriculture immediately provide the location of the horses rounded up by the Paiute tribe two weeks ago and notify New Mexico authorities that the horses cannot be moved across the border into Mexico.”
