The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

Quick update: Yesterday, the Senate Interior Appropriations subcommitee unanimously approved the spending bill and sent it to the full committee for a vote on Thursday.

Unfortunately, the subcommitee still has not released the text of the actual bill.

We may not know until Thursday what’s in it, but we can’t rest until the votes have been cast. We need your help right now to contact key Senators in the remaining 24 hours before the hearing! Scroll down for a list of Senators and our suggested brief message.

Thursday’s decision will dictate our next steps, and we have to remain vigilant.

For real-time updates, make sure you’re following us on Facebook and Twitter.

Stay tuned for more,

Suzanne Roy, Executive Director

P.S. We also need your support to keep our litigation and lobbying efforts going – can you help?

 

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

There’s a lot at stake for wild horses and burros this week on Capitol Hill. The Senate will unveil its Fiscal Year 2020 Interior Appropriations bill at a subcommittee hearing on Tuesday and a full committee hearing on Thursday.

That means we only have a few days left to oppose funding for the dangerous cattlemen’s plan that will destroy America’s wild free-roaming herds.

If you do nothing else today, please pick up the phone now to contact your Senator at 202-224-3121 as well as the key Senators below. Tell them:

“Hello. I’m calling to ask the Senator to oppose funding in FY20 Appropriations for the cattlemen’s plan for America’s wild horses and burros. I don’t want my tax dollars spent on mass roundups that will lead to eventual slaughter or on cruel sterilization surgeries. Please don’t throw more money at a failed program that has shown no ability to reform. Thank you.”

  • Senator Lisa Murkowski, (202) 224-6665 or (907) 271-3735
  • Senator Tom Udall, (202) 224-6621 or (505) 346-6791
  • Senator Susan Collins, (202) 224-2523 or (207) 780-3575
  • Senator Lindsay Graham, (202) 224-5972 or (803) 933-0112
  • Senator Marco Rubio, (202) 224-3041, (305) 596-4224
  • Senator Patrick Leahy, (202) 224-4242 or (802) 863-2525
  • Senator Dianne Feinstein, (202) 224-3841 or (415) 393-0707
  • Senator Jeff Merkley, (202) 224-3753 or (503) 326-3386
  • Senator Chris VanHollen, (202) 224-4654 or (667) 212-4610
  • Senator Jack Reed, (202) 224-4642 or (401) 528-5200

After you make the call, please take one moment to send this automated tweet.

We must amplify our voices now! There’s too much at stake not to act.

Thank you for speaking up for America’s wild horses!

Help us secure the future for wild horses.

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

There’s a lot at stake for wild horses in Washington this week as the Senate unveils its FY2020 Interior Appropriations bill at a subcommittee hearing tomorrow. The legislation could have huge ramifications for mustangs and burros.

The bill could include funding to implement the dangerous cattlemen’s plan for our wild horses, which includes accelerated roundups, cruel surgical sterilization, and tripling the number of horses in holding — making slaughter more likely in the long run. If the bill doesn’t prohibit the Forest Service from selling horses for slaughter, all wild horses under Forest Service jurisdiction, including California’s Devil’s Garden mustangs, will be at grave risk.

If the Senate funds this devastating proposal, we’ll need to escalate the fight over the next months and beyond.

Here’s what American Wild Horse Campaign is doing to defend wild horses.

We lobby. On the Hill, our experienced legislative team is fighting every day to convince legislators to secure real and humane solutions that protect these national icons.

We lead grassroots campaigns to make sure your voices are heard. In 2017, we beat back the existential threat of mass slaughter. With your support, we’ll prevail again.

We defend in the courtroom. Our lawsuits have defeated rancher attempts to force mass roundups and BLM plans to eradicate wild horses from designated habitat. We’re currently in court simultaneously fighting the Forest Service’s slaughter plans and the BLM’s plans to perform barbaric sterilization surgeries on wild mares.

We can keep this vital work going – but only with your help. The lives of tens of thousands of mustangs and burros depend on your support.

Thank you for your steadfast support for AWHC and our beloved mustangs and burros

BLM Plan Could Destroy Idaho Wild Horse Herd – Take Action!

The BLM is accepting public comments on a Draft Resource Management Plan (RMP) that will affect a small herd of wild horses living in the Four Mile Herd Management Area in southwestern Idaho, near the Oregon border for the next 10-20 years. Among the management options under consideration for wild horses in the Four Mile mustangs are surgical removal of ovaries in mares and castration of stallions, vasectomy, PZP, GonaCon, skewed sex ratios, and the creation of non-reproducing herds. Now is the time to weigh in for humane and proven management options like PZP fertility control, and rejection of dangerous methods, like surgical sterilization and sex-ratio skewing, that will destroy the horses’ wild free roaming behaviors and social organization. Please take one moment to take action below.

 

BLM Roundup Reports: Utah, Nevada and California

The BLM is well into its summer/fall roundup season, aiming to remove 3,565 federally-protected wild horses from public lands through the fall. This month has seen three roundups conducted simultaneously in three different states — including one targeting the nation’s most high profile wild horse herd. AWHC has been onsite at all three roundups and you can read our reports from the field by clicking below.

 

Wild Horse Week in Washington a Success!

Thanks to all the members of our herd who galloped to action last week to let the Senate know that the so-called Path Forward for wild horses — being pushed by the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, ASPCA, HSUS and Return to Freedom — will be a giant step back for these cherished national icons. Together we made our position known, loud and clear. Read more about the successful mini campaign below!

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

#WildHorseWeek continues, and so do your opportunities to get your Senator’s attention.

As you know, a dangerous proposal is being circulated for mustangs and burros, and we must ensure that the Senate stands strong on our side and does not include funding language in the Interior Appropriations Bill.

Today, we urge you to speak up on social media.

What you can do:

1.  Send these automated tweets to our Senate targets using the links below.

2. Download this graphic and post it somewhere (even in the comments!) on the following Senator’s Facebook pages.

We are hearing that offices know where we stand, we just have to keep it up. Let’s make sure they hear us loud and clear.

Thank you and post away!

– The AWHC Team

P.S. If you haven’t already, please make a call to your Senator at 202-224-3121 and tell them to OPPOSE funding for the Cattlemen’s Association/ASPCA wild horse plan and SUPPORT legislative language to prevent USFS from selling wild horses for slaughter.

MEET TATIANA – CAN WE HELP HER? SHE IS IN EXTREMELY CRITICAL CONDITION! SHE NEEDS HELP NOW!

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

Thank you for helping us save all 71 babies. In the middle of all that, we rescued another Virginia Range yearling with a nail in her foot. Sadly, the only option was to end her excruciating pain.

ANOTHER EMERGENCY CALL YESTERDAY. We picked up this beautiful little girl last night. She is about as critical as they come. We also found out she has extreme issues with peripheral vision and appears to be completely blind behind her. She was terrified, shaking and lashing out, kicking viciously out of utter panic and terror, if anything accidentally touched her hind end or she herself touched something.

She is beyond sweet and NEEDS YOUR HELP! She stayed right outside the nursery door, surrounded by babies, babies, babies on either side. She ate and as I was awake all night, I heard her urinate twice. That is why you “sleep (or stay awake lol)” with your critical cases and your babies. I would have no way of knowing if she was passing any fluids if I couldn’t hear her.

She will need veterinary care, blood tests, medicine, special feed etc. and we still have close to 70 horses here. 19 went to their new homes yesterday. PTL!

So if you can help us give her a chance it would be much appreciated. Tatiana was named after Titan,our beautiful boy we rescued last year. He came in to us in about the same shape, but the damage the starvation did to him was too severe. He had a year of love and happiness, but yesterday he was done.

Please help us save her and honor his memory. She truly needs a miracle, and if we can save her, she most likely will end up a permanent rescue in our blind pen with the other kids.

Please help today!

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

WOW – ANOTHER 911 CALL – 26 MORE babies today. I should have stayed home lol. I am in WA State as we got called for 5 babies last week. Received another phone call this morning and now we have another 26 babies to save. THESE BABIES NEED FOLKS TO HELP ASAP!

Between NV and WA, we have now pulled in 71 babies and yearlings in the last 2 weeks. Talk about running on faith. The wonderful donations we received have pretty much been spent rescuing these kids, feeding them, and on some initial veterinary care. God has always provided us with such amazing Angels (YOU) who donate so we can keep saving these PRECIOUS LIVES.

However, this one is especially based on faith, as we need so much help to be able to save these kids. Again, everything is a deadline, and we need to be able to commit to and pick up these babies tonight.

PLEASE HELP US SAVE THESE ADDITIONAL 26 BABIES!

AS ALWAYS, THIS IS A 911, as we are the only chance these babies have to start their new lives. So once again, our CHILLY PEPPER FAMILY is on the FRONT LINES! Let’s do what we always do and “git ‘er done”!

Action required: Wild horses on brink of destruction

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

Right now, the Senate is considering partial funding for a plan that, if approved, could mean the beginning of the end for free-roaming horses and burros. The plan, ill-conceived and full of dangerously vague language, is hidden within the Interior budget bill and it’s on track to be negotiated in September.

Take action now: Sign our petition to protect America’s wild horses and burros.

What is this plan? It’s a ten year attack on wild horse populations, and nothing short of a surrender of the decades-long fight for fair treatment, humane management, and preservation of our nation’s wild horse and burro herds.

The plan is billed as a compromise between the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, other livestock lobbying groups, and the Humane Society of the U.S. (HSUS), the ASPCA and Return to Freedom, but there’s nothing in it for wild horses.

In fact, it calls for the roundup of 130,000 wild horses and burros over the next decade – more than exist today on the range. This will triple the number of wild horses and burros incarcerated at taxpayer expense, at a cost of close to $1 billion over the next decade, without any guarantee of long-term funding to ensure safety from slaughter for these cherished animals.

And there’s more. Herd numbers will diminish beyond minimum viable populations, gruesome sterilization experiments for wild mares will remain on the table, and herds left on public lands will be manipulated with unnatural sex ratios that will wreak havoc on social organization and dynamics.

We’ve seen the power Americans have to affect change at a national level. We must band together to demand an absolute NO to this disastrous plan.

Take action now, and sign our petition to make sure your Senators vote against this dangerous proposal.

Thank you,

– AWHC Team

New horses and the story of an intake:  Sawyer and Jasper

Sawyer and Jasper recently came to AAE when their owner fell on very hard times.  They are super sweet, pony-sized kids coming three this Fall.

Sawyer

Sawyer’s was born November 2016, and her dad was a Spanish QH and mom QH/Shetland.  At intake, Sawyer weighed in at about 825 pounds and measured about 13.1 hh.  Sawyer is a fancy lil’ gal that came in with a bit of a spoiled/pushy ‘tude.
Sawyer is learning her manners, as hard as it may be because she really loves her human friends.  Sawyer is easy to bring in from pasture, and she’s lower gal on the totem pole in the herd.  She is enjoys grooming and lots of attention.  She has been trimmed once and is learning to stand patiently and give her hooves freely.  Sawyer is improving her ground skills, working in the round pen and will soon be learning to ground drive with a surcingle.
She’s taking it all in stride.  This little character will make a fun project for an experienced person.  Sawyer is available for adoption and will be ready to go to her new home after her dental appointment next week.  She is current with vaccines, deworming, and hoof care.  She has a microchip in place, and her DNA results are in ( 1st Galiceno, 2nd Quarter Horse, 3rd Belgian Draft).
If you are interested in adopting Sawyer, please visit her page for more info and submit an Adoption Inquiry.

Jasper

Jasper was born October 2016, and his dad was a Spanish QH and mom a registered Paint.  At intake, he weighed in at only 700 pounds and measured 14.0 hh.  Jasper is a laid back kinda guy that came in a little bit shy.  He was thin, and his hooves were long and flared.  He had not been gelded, so we made immediate plans to take resolve that “issue”.
Jasper was warming up quickly with only a minor setback when his personal space was invaded, and we learned he was hiding both of his gems.  Wait, it wasn’t Jasper that had the setback, it was AAE when we learned he was a bilateral cryptorchid.  Neither of his testicles had descended.  To be sure he actually had testicles and wasn’t magically gelded by some equine angel in the night, we confirmed with a blood test.  “He does have testicles”, just what we really didn’t want to hear.  Needless to say, Jasper made his way to Loomis Basin Equine Medical Center for brain surgery, I mean castration.  Thankfully, surgery went well, and Jasper recovered nicely.
Jasper has come around to enjoy humans with little concern.  He still needs to build a bit of confidence, but all in all, he’s a sweetheart of a guy.  He’s learning his manners, and he’s learning patience, relatively well.  Jasper, the lil stud colt that he was, had some inherently strong, manly beliefs.  He’s slowly losing his enthusiasm around other horses, and he’s learning to be more respectful in the presence of others.  He has not made a transition to pasture yet, because he still has some belief that he’s “the man”, a stud, and he really likes the girls.  When recently introduced to pasture, he thought he’d show Blue up a bit.  Oops, not how we thought that introduction would go.  For now, he’ll spend more time appreciating the herd and pasture from the other side of the fence.  In the meantime, Jasper is enjoying grooming and attention.  He has been trimmed twice and is still learning to stand patiently and give his hooves freely; however, there was big improvement with the second trim.
Now that Jasper has recovered from surgery, he has been improving his ground skills, working in the round pen, and he will soon be learning to ground drive with a surcingle and wear a saddle.  He has some growing to do.  He’s filling out nicely, but seems delayed a bit due to malnourishment early on.  Like Sawyer, he’s taken it all in stride.  Jasper will also make a fun project for an experienced person.  Jasper is available for adoption and will be ready to go to his new home after his dental appointment next week.  He is current with vaccines, deworming, and hoof care.  He has a microchip in place, and his DNA results are in ( 1st Quarter Horse, 2nd Turkoman, 3rd Holsteiner).

If you are interested in adopting Jasper, please visit his page for more info and submit an Adoption Inquiry.

The Story of an Intake:

While Sawyer’s intake was unusually straightforward, she’s waiting for her person to find her.  She’s getting an education and hoping the next inquiry is for her.  Might you be hers?
If you are interested in adopting Sawyer, please visit her page for more info and submit an Adoption Inquiry.
Jasper is a great example of the many needs and challenges encountered with each intake.
He is also available for adoption and waiting to find his person.   If you are interested in adopting Jasper, please visit his page for more info and submit an Adoption Inquiry.

Ranchers call for a roundup of wild horses on our public lands. Don’t let the cattle industry win

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

Earlier this week, a federal court judge in California issued an order granting us the right to intervene in a lawsuit, filed by public lands ranchers, seeking the immediate round up and removal of 2,000 wild horses from the Devil’s Garden Wild Horse Territory in the Modoc National Forest.

At the same time, our attorney is in San Francisco today, participating in court-ordered negotiations with the U.S. Forest Service on a separate lawsuit, filed by AWHC and the Animal Legal Defense Fund, to stop the agency from selling Devil’s Garden horses for slaughter.

Please, support our ongoing legal efforts to protect the Devil’s Garden wild horses in California from special interests that seek their mass removal and slaughter.

The Devil’s Garden Territory is home to one of California’s largest remaining wild horse populations. Yet under pressure from local ranching interests, the Forest Service seeks to reduce the wild horse population to 200 – 402 horses, while allowing over 3,700 cows and 2,900 sheep to graze the public lands there.

The situation that has been unfolding in Devil’s Garden — from the roundups to the proposal to sell the mustangs without limitation on slaughter — represents one of the more serious attacks on wild horses by the public lands ranching industry.

Enough is enough. We’re waging two separate legal battles to defend Devil’s Garden mustangs from this existential threat.

Please help us fund this crucial fight today. Your donation will be earmarked for the legal efforts to protect the right of the Devil’s Garden wild horses to live wild and free on our public lands.

As always, we are the last line of defense for America’s wild horses and we must keep fighting until their safety is assured.

THE ROUNDUP BEGINS – SIXTY PLUS BABIES EXPECTED???? WILL YOU SAVE THEM? A CHANCE TO GET THEM BEFORE THE KILL BUYER.

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

THEY JUST KEEP COMING! Got ANOTHER CALL!!!!l for UP TO SIXTY (60) – YES, 60 or more, ORPHAN BABIES. The roundup in NV has already started, sorting has begun and we are on call for this afternoon!!.

We have been given the chance to purchase these orphans BEFORE the kill buyer gets their hands on them. Praising the Lord for that one. Although no one likes the roundups, this makes saving the ones we can so much easier.

We are also on call for any other “special needs” kids that might come in!, whether it be injuries, starving etc. We will be there for the ones that need us!

This will save about $300 per baby just to rescue them. By being offered this “pre-purchase” opportunity, we will save about EIGHTEEN THOUSAND DOLLARS ($18,000) IF we can raise enough funds and are able to rescue the 60 we were told about.

We are estimating to purchase the babies, get Coggins, health Certs etc. and to provide the milk and feed they will need to get buy for a couple months, we should plan on about $500 per baby. That will give us a couple? month’s worth of feed. Most of these babies are not weaned, and will need their milk replacer!

It is definitely going to take awhile to find homes for that many babies. There could be more! Everyone is always saying that rescues should get them before they get to the kill buyer. Well, here is our chance. I believe they only have to be about 400 pounds to ship, so we need to save as many as possible.

We are shooting for $30,000 so we can save up to 60 babies and actually be able to start providing care for them until we find them homes That is just the start, as there will most likely be at least a few who need vetting.

Once again I was given a deadline to commit, and as always, I went on pure Faith. Y’all have saved so many lives and I know that no one wants these babies to die.

It is time for EVERYONE to come together.

We still have babies at the Shipper’s in WA, and the 4 (3 stallions) in Idaho that I wrote about yesterday. We are hoping other rescues will take on even a few of the babies. We need to work together!

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, Help us get this done. We have had miracle after miracle because YOU GUYS SAVED THE DAY! Let’ keep it going and save these lives.

(Babies pictured here are some of the groups you have saved in the past.)

911 FOR 2 STALLIONS, 1 GELDING & A YEARLING!! WILL YOU HELP SAVE THEM? 48 HOUR DEADLINE – PLUS ONE VERY HAPPY SINBAD!

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

 

Another 911, Received an emergency call for the horses shown above, a couple hours ago. We have until Friday to save them. There are two stallions and a yearling who all need to be gelded. Stallions have so much less of a chance to find homes, but we can “git ‘er done”, with Your help!(Sometimes it is a bummer being the ones who can “do stallions”, but these lives matter!)

All four need saved, and we need your help to have their Coggins drawn, get their Health Certs etc. and be able to transport them to safety.

As usual, we need immediate help to save these beautiful souls. The good news is that we can save them, and the great news is that 3 of them already have a safe place to land, once we rescue and vet them. The gelding needs some serious hoof care, and then we can work on placing him also.

But the timing is critical and it is urgent as there is no leniency on the deadline.

THANK YOU for saving Sinbad. (aka Hero) (Shown above left)

Great news!! He is on his new Mama. They are with our friends Bev Boshart and her group, and Mama and Baby are loving each other. Mama needs some serious groceries as well, and both are getting everything they need and the best care possible. We so appreciate Bev taking on this little one. This is the 2nd Mama and baby this year, that they have matched up with a little magic from the vet.

Another reason to celebrate. Remember poor Obsidian? Well, here he is today. He now has his permanent home, and he is thriving there. He still has serious emotional issues, but is improving every day. He is comfortable where he is living and starting to interact a bit more on his own. Physically he is thriving. Every day this beautiful boy is healing and enjoying his life, and it is all “THANKS TO YOU”!

No Recess for Wild Horses – Take Action!

Where does your member of Congress stand on protecting wild horses? If you don’t know, now’s the time to find out. And if they’re supporting mass roundups and sterilization, it’s the time to change their minds. Your Representative and Senators are back home for the August recess and will be holding town halls and taking meetings – so now’s your chance to speak up for our wild horses and burros! Learn how at the link below. 

 

Response to Alta Magazine’s, “Feral Horses, Fierce Controversy”

Our wild horses and burros are often the subjects of inaccurate, misleading, agenda-driven reporting. A recent example is Jason G. Goldman’s “Feral Horse, Fierce Controversy” that was published in the July issue of Alta, a magazine that promises “a celebration and examination of all things about California.”  If you shopped at Whole Foods in California this summer, you will have likely seen this cover story on the magazine prominently displayed in the check-out lines.  It’s a biased, sensationalized piece far below the journalistic standards that Alta says it aspires to. Read our response below.

 

U.S. Forest Service Seeks to Weaken Environmental Review Regs. and Limit Public Comment

The U.S. Forest Service is proposing rules that will significantly weaken its regulations under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) which requires federal agencies to assess the environmental effects of proposed actions prior to making decisions. The Forest Service proposed rules would limit the opportunity for public input and make it easier for the agency to make decisions on proposed actions, like wild horse roundups, without analyzing the environmental impacts. Please read more and weigh in against the proposed rule change by clicking below.

HELP SAVE SINBAD! MAMA DIED AND BABY NEEDS IMMEDIATE AND URGENT CARE! PLEASE HELP NOW!

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

Another emergency for an emaciated foal. I received another 911 call today. One of the babies at the shipper’s is in dire shape. His Mama passed away, and he needs our help now!!!

Please help us Save Sinbad. He needs urgent and lifesaving care immediately.He will be at Mama Mel’s Urgent Care Nursery for now. I have a call in to one of our folks in WA who has had success in the past, hooking up Mama’s and orphan foals, and we have high hopes that he may be one of the lucky ones. This will be done under veterinary care, and he will have 24/7 care.

But for now we need to save him and we need to stock up on all of our supplies for the rest of the babies who are still at the Shipper’s. We know there are already more coming, and as usual, we need your help now! We are short on all our baby supplies and we still have 8 babies at this time,

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

Today marks the end of our Summer Roundup Campaign. Thanks to your support, we were able to exceed our fundraising goal – we’ll have what it takes to document fall and winter roundups and keep fighting to protect wild horses across the West.

Over the last few days, our field representative at the Pine Nut roundup has witnessed helicopters stampeding small numbers of horses for hours at a time to no avail. By the end of the roundup, which concluded yesterday, only 36 horses were captured in total. One beautiful black mare broke her leg and was killed as a result.

The few remaining Pine Nut wild horse families have evaded the trap, despite 90+ degree temperatures and days of relentless chasing. We’re sickened at this cruelty. We’re angry that these actions are taken at taxpayers’ expense.

Because of your generosity during this campaign, we have the funding to continue the fight. And, in the spirit of the Pine Nut mustangs still living free, that’s just what we’ll do.

We started this fundraising campaign to fuel our government relations team in educating Congress about the BLM’s inhumane practices, to support our litigation fund for roundup-related lawsuits, and to broaden our education and advocacy programs documenting how taxpayer dollars are being used and wasted.

As summer roundups continue into fall and winter, we’ll be there to hold the BLM accountable and raise our voices to keep wild horses and burros protected from undue harm and danger.

It’s not too late to chip in and help us protect the wild horses that we hold dear.

Thank you for being part of our herd as we continue to make sure wild horses stay wild.

Take Action for Utah’s Wild Horses in the Range Creek HMA

The BLM is seeking public comments on a roundup and removal plan for the wild horses that live in the Range Creek HMA in Utah. The HMA includes 55,000 acres of public and private lands, on which the BLM has set a wild horse population limit (AML) of just 75-125 wild horses. The agency seeks to remove over 200 horses and reduce the population to the low AML of 75, a density of one horse per 733 acres! The BLM’s plan also includes the implementation of fertility control, including the use of unproven IUD’s, and the skewing of wild horse sex ratios to favor of males. Please weigh in today against yet another roundup and urge the BLM instead to implement proven humane and sustainable wild horse management tools.

 

BLM Reorganization Will Have Major Impact on Public Lands and Wild Horses 

A massive reorganization of the BLM that involves moving its headquarters to Grand Junction, CO and transferring most of its Washington, D.C. staff out west — combined with the Administration’s installment of a lawyer who advocates for the sell-off of federal lands in the top agency post — is raising concerns about the future of our public lands and the agency tasked with managing and conserving them. The developments forbode further dysfunction within the BLM, increased control by local and corporate interests over federal public lands policy, and a growing threat to the environment and wild horses and burros. Read more below.

 

New Census Shows Devil’s Garden Mustang Population Half the Size Claimed by Ranchers

On Tuesday, the U.S. Forest Service announced its plan to conduct another roundup of California wild horses from the Devil’s Garden Wild Horse Territory in the Modoc National Forest. At the same time, the agency released new census numbers showing far fewer mustangs actually live in the Forest than previously claimed by the ranching interests that have waged a propaganda campaign against the horses. The ultimate goal is the removal of most of these cherished California mustangs from the public lands that comprise the Modoc Forest. Read more below.

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

Here’s your latest wild horse status report.

With the dust barely settled after the Triple B roundup last week, we’re headed to the Pine Nut wild horse roundup in Nevada on Monday.

As I write this, tens of thousands of wild horses stand in government holding facilities, and we wait with bated breath for the BLM’s decision on whether or not it will proceed with gruesome sterilization experiments on wild mares.

With tactical lawsuits, advocacy on the Hill, implementation of humane fertility control, and documentation in the wild, we continue with crucial actions to make roundups a thing of the past. That’s why, last week, we extended our fundraising goal to $100,000 to fight these cruel stampedes.

Your donation today will help us gear up for the next fights to protect wild horses on Monday – and save more of these beautiful creatures from suffering the same cruel fate we’re witnessing now.

Here are some of the actions we take to end roundups:

  • With field representation and filmmakers on the ground at each roundup, we’re gathering footage for educational videos to share with the public and lawmakers.
  • On Capitol Hill, our legal team is educating key members of Congress to combat a dangerous plan to round up and remove up to 130,000 wild horses over the next 10 years. (That’s more than exist on the range today.)
  • With litigation funding, we’re building specific cases for roundup-related lawsuits — like our case to save wild horses near Caliente, Nevada where BLM is planning to remove 100% of the herds.

Donate today to take action with us. Your support is key as we continue asserting to stand as the last line of defense between our wild horses and burros and the corporate livestock industry that seeks their destruction.

Thank you for standing with us,

Suzanne
