a couple of crucial developments in the fight to defend wild horses (please read)

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

News & Alerts

Acting BLM Director William Perry Pendley’s recent declaration of wild horses as the top existential threat to public lands (even though wild horses aren’t on 88% of BLM land!) and his claim that it will cost $5 billion to “solve” the wild horse “problem” is the culmination of a years-long propaganda war against mustangs and burros.

The war is being waged by the commercial livestock industry, which seeks virtual eradication of these cherished animals in order to maximize taxpayer-subsidized grazing of privately-owned cattle and sheep on public lands.

This anti-mustang propaganda war was boosted recently with the capitulation of the Humane Society of the U.S., ASPCA and Return to Freedom to the cattlemen’s mass mustang roundup agenda.

With that in mind, your team at AWHC has been fighting back hard — from the battleground of Nevada to the seat of power in Washington DC — and we want to share some of our most recent work with you today.

Fighting Back at Ground Zero in the Wild Horse War: Nevada

On October 23, we organized a high-profile press conference with Nevada business leaders and a leading conservationist to counter the anti-wild horse messaging at a screening later that evening of the propaganda film “Horse Rich Dirt Poor.”

Well known real estate developer and Storey County Commissioner Lance Gilman and Erik Molvar, Executive Director of the Western Watersheds Campaign, struck back forcefully against the scapegoating of wild horses and in favor of protecting these iconic animals on public lands in the West. Read more about this highly successful event here.

Defending Wild Horses & Burros in Washington, DC

AWHC teamed up with our colleagues at Animal Wellness Action and The Cloud Foundation to hold a briefing on Capitol Hill for Congressional staff to discuss the mass roundup plan and its true cost to American taxpayers and the wild horses and burros we cherish. In one of the most successful Hill briefings ever, 35 staffers showed up to learn more about this issue that is obviously of concern to so many of their constituents. You can read more about this event here.

At the same time and a few miles away, the BLM Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Board was meeting — with AWHC staff in attendance to ensure that your voices were represented and heard.

Throughout the meeting, BLM officials and most advisory board members expressed their utter disdain for public opinion, which they dismissed as being “emotional” and “uneducated.” It’s clear where the public stands on the mass roundup and surgical sterilization plan, as our most recent polling documents. At the meeting, we made sure that the voice of the people was not ignored.

Read more about the board meeting here.

Fighting to Keep Wild Horses Wild

While we’re battling on the national front, AWHC is investing significant resources to protect locally cherished herds and support humane management programs.

From the Virginia Range — where our darters have delivered more fertility control treatments to wild horses in six months than the entire BLM did last year — to the Onaqui Mountains in Utah, where we’re helping the BLM and the Wild Horses of America Foundation expand an existing fertility control program, to the Salt River in Arizona where we work closely with the Salt River Wild Horse Management Group, we’re working every day to keep wild horses wild and prove that humane management work.

You won’t want to miss our latest updates from the field here.

We Couldn’t Do This Work Without You!

Our mustangs and burros don’t have a voice — Which is why we’re using ours. If just 5% of you donate to this email, we could clear our monthly fundraising goal and show the BLM that the public proudly supports this important work to keep wild horses and burros wild and free!

From all of us here at AWHC — Thank you for taking the time to read this and thank you for supporting our work.

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue:

Never has it felt more true.  The horses come to AAE for a reason, because of your support, it’s possible.
THANK YOU for all of the GREAT THINGS you do to make it possible to help so many horses!

CONWAY, one we were able to help

Conway came to AAE with six of his other equine friends after the passing of his elderly owner.  Due to his owner’s health conditions and physical limitations, this herd had not received adequate care for quite some time.  The County animal care agency had been involved for quite some time.  Though we offered assistance over a year ago; owner declined, looking only for financial support.
Conway had foundered; he had not received hoof or dental care for quite a while.
His hooves were painful, and he was very depressed.
Conway on day of pick-up in July 2019
Conway was a bit nervous, lacking confidence and appreciation for humans.  He was not readily halterable without patience and try.
Conway was evasive, sensitive, and really wanted to be alone.  He was not a fan of hoof handling, either, understandably so.
Shortly after arrival, radiographs were taken of Conway’s hooves, and he got much needed hoof and dental care.

  

Conway needed sedation for hoof care initially.  After two- to four-week trim cycles, continued hoof care and much love and attention, this lil’ guy has come around.  He’s beginning to seek attention, and he stands quietly for the farrier.  Conway has some sensitivity with the farrier when rasping his dorsal wall, likely due to residual sensitivity, but he seems to improve with each trim cycle.  Conway is living in a small mini horse/donkey herd environment, and his personality is slowly surfacing.

Recent photo of Conway shortly before moving on to his forever home.
 
Conway’s hooves before and after.
Thank you to Conway’s veterinarian, Diana Stolba, DVM, Loomis Basin Equine Medical Center,
and farrier, Chris Culcasi!
Conway THANKS YOU for helping him have a promising future!

Help Us With Our New Fencing!

We need help finishing our fencing project at the new property.
Are you available Saturday, November 15, 2019?
If we can get the south portion of the fencing done,
we can move some horses onto the new property and
rotate them in the big pasture area
before the new grass grows.
  
Can you please help?
We really need to get this done, soon.
  
We had to reschedule, but we’ll have the help of our favorite Micah Smith and Tailored Tree!
We’ll be digging post holes with the help of Micah’s Bobcat!
Dick and Wendy will be out, and we need the help of at least four to six more people
assist with the process including setting the posts in concrete (lifting bags of concrete).
November 15, 2019 – 9a to noon-ish (or until we get done)
Additional days for tackling more t-posts and installing wire will follow.
We are nearly done with the south end of the property!
We have two power drivers for the t-posts.
 
Once we can get the t-posts done in the remaining areas, and the posts set, we can start hanging wire.
How exciting it will be to get this done!!!  We are close!
Everyone is welcome to join us!
If you are able to help with any of the dates above, please contact jean@allaboutequine.org.
Jean is helping coordinate the fence building mission.
Please help if you can!!

HEADING BACK TO WA – MORE BABIES AT THE FEED LOT – CHILLY PEPPER NEEDS YOUR HELP NOW!

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

ANOTHER MIRACLE BABY – MEET LITTLE MAX, AND HIS MAMA WHO REJECTED HIM.

They just keep coming. All the horses in the last batch have been savedLuckily another rescue stepped up and helped fund raise and there is only one left at this time. We are slated to bring him home if he does not get adopted in the next few hours. Sadly, between his fees and Coggins etc., we will need another $750 just to save him, and that does not include the additional babies..

It cost $6027 ($1400 to save the horses and the rest for Coggins and Health Certs and to get the emergency vet care for our gentle giant and the tiny Max. Big Matt had a bad case of colic, and Little Matt was on his way to a certain death. In addition, one of the horses I am bringing home on this next trip needed emergency vet care yesterday for an infected hoof. So that pretty much wiped out the coffers. We try to do as much of the vetting as we can, but sometimes you have to bite the bullet and save the lives God puts in front of youSo we need more help now! I have to get to WA, so we can save the 4 babies waiting at the feed lot. Then those horses have to get vetted and we have to get back home.

THE MIRACLE OF MAX-AMILLION

I received the call for MAX, hours after he was born. His Mama absolutely refused to have anything to do with him and shoved him into a water tank. So this newborn (probably a preemie) ended up with no care, a Mama bent on hurting him, and wet and frozen cold out in the freezing winds. It was a horrific way for a tiny baby to begin life.

I was told that he was given colostrum. He couldn’t really swallow, and had no suckling reflex whatsoever. It took forever to get even tiny amounts of milk down him. The next morning we had the vet check him. Everything seemed fine.

That afternoon little Max was unconscious.. We gave him glucose and Mel worked on waking him up. When he came back to, he sat up and drank his milk like nothing had happened. I was pretty sure we had turned a corner, but that little voice said take him to WSU – the Veterinary Teaching Hospital. It was 4 hours away and I was exhausted and dreading the drive, but I knew God was telling us to go. THANKFULLY WE DID! Max-amillion had zero Passive Transfer, which means he had no colostrum. Not enough to even register. He has pneumonia, fluid around his lungs from the pneumonia, and he would have died for sure.

Between the vet bills for Big Matt and Little Max-amillion, and the funds spent purchasing the rescued horses, we simply need to recharge our funds. We need to get the rest of the kids and bring them home. I was told several are still needing milk, although I have yet to see them,

THANK YOU to everyone who made all this possible. Please let’s finish this long rescue and get these babies to safety.

MAX says, THANK YOU FOR SAVING MY LIFE AND MY MAMA TOO, even if she doesn’t want me.

550+ wild horses removed from public lands in Wyoming [contains photos from the scene]

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

As we speak, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is forcibly reducing the population of wild horses in Wyoming’s Fifteenmile Herd Management Area (HMA) by 86% through a helicopter stampede.

So far, they’ve removed 558 wild horses from the area — With the goal of capturing nearly 700 wild horses before the end of the month.

Those wild horses don’t have a voice, so we have to use ours — we have to take action to defend them. Every donation helps us keep the public informed about these cruel roundups and allows us to advocate for the tens of thousands of wild horses and burros across the West.

This week, our observer was in Wyoming’s Fifteenmile HMA, where the BLM is currently rounding up the entirety of the wild horse population there from our public lands. At least 8 horses have died in the week since the roundup began, including:

  • One horse succumbed to a neck injury during the helicopter stampede while two others were euthanized;
  • Another died as a result of a strike to the head by another wild horse on the way to the trap;
  • One mare had a major cut and was taken to Rock Springs for treatment;
  • Despite BLM reports that wild horses are “starving” to justify these roundups, the wild horses being removed are in good body condition and sound health.

After the BLM breaks apart their families, only 100 wild horses will be returned to the area, threatening the long term survival of the herd itself.

This is not an isolated incident, either. If Congress authorizes the new BLM ten-year plan, we will witness roundups of this scale all throughout the West — Putting wild horses and burros squarely on the path to extinction.

We are the eyes and ears on the ground, holding BLM accountable for these cruel roundups. Please donate to help our team continue to document roundups and work to ramp up the pressure on Congress to reject the BLM’s “path to extinction” plan.

Thank you for your continued support — We’ll keep you updated.

Sincerely,

The AWHC Team

ANOTHER 911 – A NEW RESCUE IN THE MIDDLE OF THIS ONE! SO FAR 8 & MAYBE MORE??? CLOCK IS TICKING AS ALWAYS.

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

ANOTHER 911 CALL! They just do not stop in our world.

2 More wild babies at the shipper’s so far, (and most likely more to come!) Folks have seen multiple “traps” that are currently full of wild horses, right now, today!

We received an urgent call for a group of kids that are shipping in a few days? 6 Domestics, 3 more older, “gentle giants”, who were purportedly driving horses, and 3 older saddle horses. All of these horses worked their lives away, and now that they are no longer needed, they have been thrown in the trash.

Let’s show them that timing aside, no matter what time of year, their lives DO matter! Rescue is never convenient, and this is the worst time of year to be taking on more horses. However, their lives ALWAYS matter, even if it is freezing outside and it takes tremendous amounts of work to care for them.

We will save as many as we can get funding for. But this means being responsible and knowing we have enough money to not only “buy them”, but to vet them, transport them and feed and care for them properly through the winter months, or until we can get them adopted.

So it will be up to y’all, as always. YOU decide how many more we can save. Y’all are amazing, but we simply cannot do this without you. We are exhausted, but we had to put it out there and give these guys a chance.

Big Matt was colicking the 2nd night we got him. He is a hot mess, and needs lots of prayers. His heart rate was double what it should have been and the vet was very concerned. Sadly, he is a very long way from being “out of the woods’. We are hoping and praying his new drug protocol will provide comfort and not too many side effects.

We have already spent a fortune on him, but he needs as much help as we can give him. At this time, he cannot seem to lie down. A horse HAS to be able to lie down, or it will be a death sentence. He is exhausted and when he tried to lay down, he got half way down, and it was too hard for him. He started moaning, and then finally stood back up. Vet has him starting on some good meds, so we will see if we can make him comfortable and give him a good quality of life.

Can you imagine weighing 1900 pounds, your feet and legs hurting, and not being able to lie down to rest and get off of them? We HAVE TO MAKE SURE his quality of life is one that he deserves! Horses also need to sleep. :(

We will be heading home with this current group of kids tomorrow. How many we will be able to pick up when we come back depends on you. Please help us save and take care of as many as possible.

We are also praying other folks will step up and help these horses, but for now, all we can do is try and save as many as we can.

Thank you as always for your miracles and your prayers!

BREAKING: BLM Director labels wild horses “existential threat” to public lands

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

News & Alerts

The Acting Bureau of Land Management Director, William Perry Pendley, just went on record to single out wild horses as the biggest “existential threat” to public lands.

No, we’re not joking:

Wild horses and burros are “an existential threat to these lands. They are causing havoc on the land.” --  William Perry Pendley

The irony of his comments is not lost on us. Almost 90 percent of BLM land has NO wild horses on it, and mustangs have nowhere near as large an environmental footprint as commercial livestock grazing. Pendley himself championed the cause of selling off our public lands into private ownership, for profit. That position is the real, existential threat to public lands.

But there’s a reason Pendley is peddling this fiction as fact: He’s trying to make the public case for a plan that would put wild horses on the pathway to extinction.

We need to call out this misinformation. If you disagree with Pendley, then we need you to add your name on our petition to reject his outrageous assertion that wild horses represent the biggest threat to public lands.

Add Your Name >>

 

 

Here’s a quick look at the real threats and dangers facing public lands, Mr. Pendley:

Don’t let Pendley off the hook for spreading dangerous and damaging lies. Sign here to reject Pendley’s ridiculous claim that wild horses represent an “existential threat” to public lands.

Thank you,

P.S. — It’s difficult to overstate how significant it is for the Acting Director of the BLM to label wild horses and burros “an existential threat” in an official capacity. We have to set the record straight and expose his lies — Every donation helps us do that and defend our wild horses and burros.

He is a gentle giant, albeit a “roachback”. But look at that face, he so does not deserve to die. His fee is expensive, as with his weight he will bring a nice fat paycheck if he is shipped to slaughter.

Please, let’s add him to our list of happy, safe horses. THANK YOU!

What you need to know about the Devil’s Garden roundup →

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

News & Alerts

We wanted to make sure you had the chance to read this before getting too wrapped up in your weekend Meredith.

The roundup in the Devil’s Garden Wild Horse Territory in California ended this week, resulting in the permanent removal of 499 wild horses from their federally protected habitat. Already three of them have died at the U.S. Forest Service’s Double Devil Wild Horse Corrals.

This latest roundup followed the removal of 932 wild horses last fall from Devil’s Garden. The USFS announced last year that the captured wild horses could be sold without limitations on slaughter (we’re suing to stop them).

Take a moment to read our breakdown of The Devil’s Garden roundup in numbers, and if you can, please make a donation to support our team as we wage two separate lawsuits on behalf of these wild horses.

Our team is working around the clock to protect the Devil’s Garden mustangs from more roundups and slaughter – Every donation, no matter the size, helps power our fight.

If you’ve already donated or cannot at this time, please consider sharing this with a couple of your close friends. Our wild horses and burros don’t have a voice – So we have to use ours.

Thank you for your continued support,

“Why don’t you sue?” — We are

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

A common question we get asked when we shine a spotlight on cruel practices and unjust policies that threaten our wild horses is:

“Why don’t you sue?”

The answer is – we are! The American Wild Horse Campaign currently has 6 active lawsuits. We consider litigation as one of our central pillars of defense against the increasing number of threats facing wild horses and burros throughout the West.

We’ve had some incredible successes – putting in place legal protections that will stand the test of time. In the case of Devil’s Garden, we’re currently suing to protect nearly 500 wild horses from potentially being sold to slaughter.

Take a moment to read below about how we’re defending wild horses and burros in the courts of law.

And if you can – be one of the 100 donors we need to step up on this #WildHorseWednesday before midnight so we can continue to advocate and defend our wild horses and burros.

We’re only able to get involved in these legal fights because of supporters like you donating to emails like these. Be one of the 100 donors we need to step up before midnight on this #WildHorseWednesday to support our work! >>

Thank you for looking this over and for your continued support,

American Wild Horse Campaign

P.S. – Getting the word out about our work helps us out immensely! So if you could forward this email to three friends, then we can close out this #WildHorseWednesday knowing we made a difference in the fight to defend America’s wild horses and burros!

THEN IT WAS NINE – 9. WILL YOU HELP US SAVE ALL THEIR LIVES.. MORE DEADLINES & LIVES AT STAKE

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

WILL YOU SAVE MY LIFE??? (And my friends?)

The baby shown above is going to ship if we do not step up! As of tonight, there are 9 lives at stake,

Rescue is overwhelming, the constant need for fundraisers, the calls you cannot say yes to, the constant cries for help. Yet once again, we are stuck.

We simply do not have enough funds to save all these kids.

We have to be responsible to the horses already at the rescue, and we cannot take on more if we cannot properly care for them.

That being said, I believe there are enough folks who care about these precious souls who will step up and help us save them. We have committed to paying for 5, but have not covered the costs yet. Again, we are going on faith, even committing to those 5.

It takes an average of approximately $350 per horse, to purchase, get them vetted and have their blood drawn, (so they can be transported) and get them home. That is just to “save them”, and that is just the beginning.. That does not include basic feed or any additional vet care etc.

We HAVE to have additional funds for feed & care (hay, grain, vaccines etc.), or we cannot commit to saving them all.

Matt and I are willing to do the work, but the horses need your help now! You have saved so many lives, please let’s keep on “Gitten ‘Er done”’ and save ALL 9 of these lives.

The donkeys are in extremely poor shape health wise. The stud is extremely aggressive, and has not only plowed over one of our favorite people and sent him flying, he BITES! Their hooves are in horrible shape, and they will need lots of extra care and vetting.

I am out of town, and was actually trying to take a couple “rescue free” days to have time to say good bye to a much loved friend. But this was a call I couldn’t ignore. (I know she would be unhappy if I let these innocent babies die, just because my heart is filled with sadness by her passing).

So in her honor I am continuing the fight, and asking y’all for another miracle. Let’s save these lives. PLEASE donate now!!!

We’re rising to the occasion

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

News & Alerts

It’s difficult to overstate the threat to wild horses and burros posed by the Cattlemen’s Association/HSUS/ASPCA, et. al., and their mass mustang roundup plan. If it goes into effect, up to 20,000 horses and burros each year for the next three years will be rounded up and removed from public lands.

Over the next ten years, the total number removed from the range could be as high as 130,000 wild horses and burros. 

But thanks to dedicated supporters like you who have spoken out, signed petitions, and donated, this dangerous plan is drawing national attention and backlash:

Momentum is building, but we’re facing a major deadline to stop one cruel method that the plan allows — a brutal and outdated surgical procedure that BLM intends to use to remove the ovaries of wild mares. Many veterinarians have spoken out, but more are needed to convince Interior Secretary David Bernhardt to pull the plug on this inhumane surgery.

We need as many veterinarians as possible to sign this letter to Interior Secretary Bernhardt by October 18th — please forward it to your local vet today.

Mass Roundups & Surgical Sterilization Are Not The Answer

These wild herds are at risk of being destroyed forever. And this isn’t hyperbole — mass roundups would reduce wild horse populations to near-extinction levels. Surgical sterilization would destroy the mustangs’ natural behaviors, which make them truly wild and help them survive in the rugged West.

There are much better and far safer management options to maintain viable and healthy herds of wild free-roaming horses and burros on our public lands.

The National Academies of Sciences, in its 2013 Report to the BLM, made it crystal clear that roundups don’t work:

We’re Showing There Is A Better Way

Every single day, our darters are proving that humane management of wild horses in the wild is possible. And our PZP birth control programs are getting results.

In the span of five and a half months, our team of 14 volunteer darters in the Virginia Range in Nevada delivered more fertility control treatments to wild mares than the entire BLM, with its $80-million-a-year-budget, did in all of 2018.

Just last week in the Onaqui Mountains in Utah, AWHC’s darter worked with the BLM and the Wild Horses of American Foundation to dart 81 horses.

The fact is, PZP programs are getting results. We stand ready to work with the BLM to expand these programs so that wild horses and burros can live as nature intended — Wild and Free.

The BLM plan and these escalating roundups represent a historic threat to one of America’s greatest national icons. At this time, we’re asking if you could get your local vets signature on to this letter to Secretary Bernhardt by October 18th:

We will continue to keep you updated and thank you for your continued support,

911 CALL – ANOTHER DEADLINE – SHIPPER CALLED – 3 +? FOR US, CLOCK IS TICKING – THEY NEED YOUR HELP NOW!

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

Another 911 call today. Shipper in WA has at least 3 for us. I need to let him know asap if we can take them. TWO of them are easily big enough to ship, but we were offered the chance to save them. However, as always, there is a looming deadline.

We are so grateful to y’all for helping us save the 71 babies in August and September, but these lives are just as important. We have been absolutely swamped caring for the nearly 90 horses we had at Chilly Pepper, but thankfully, our angels stepped up to help us find placement for many of the babies. We are now close to 30 horses, but that is still a very large number going into winter. We need to stock up on groceries and meds.

With temperatures sinking in to the low 20’s in the next week, we are fighting the cold weather, “water blues”. (Low 20’s means freezing water tanks, frozen hoses, broken water lines etc. So we need to buy new tank heaters and get ready for the cold immediately. It’s only September, ugh.)

We are working on more shelter so all these kids will be comfortable and warm. In the past, this much shelter was not needed, as our numbers were normally lower.

However, as we are sitting on close to 30 horses and the weather is already going to be brutal, we need to get the extra shelters set up. Especially as we are (hopefully) heading out to get more.

The (4 legged) kids are also eating us out of house and home. We need to order more hay, grain, milk pellets etc. and are now heading to WA, IF we can save these babies. This will mean more vetting etc. (It was over $500 for the last 5). As our coffers were nearly wiped out with the 71 needing so much special feed, milk pellets, vetting etc., we need to get back on track.

Please help us save these lives and prepare for the upcoming winter. We need your help and together, as always, we can “git ‘er done” and keep saving lives.

Thank you from all the horse kids and the rest of the critters. Your donation makes a difference. Every single penny adds up, and it is clear that when we all come together, we CAN make a difference. THANK YOU!!

Wild horses betrayed…but the fight goes on!

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

I have devastating news. The Humane Society of the United States, ASPCA, and Return to Freedom, who made promises to protect horses, just betrayed America’s mustangs and burros.

Today, at the behest of those organizations and the livestock industry lobbyists they allied with, the Senate Appropriations Committee funded a $35 million increase for the BLM’s Wild Horse and Burro Program. The appropriation is part of the Fiscal Year (FY) 2020 Interior Department spending bill unveiled today.

The funds are targeted for implementation of the unprecedented mass roundup, removal, and radical population suppression plan that the groups, along with the cattlemen, support.

We’re ready to fight back.

There are no restrictions on how the BLM can spend the new money. With this nearly 50% increase in the program budget, it’s clear what the BLM will do. Thousands more wild horses will be rounded up with helicopters, ripping them from their families and homes on our public lands. Those who remain free will be subjected to brutal sterilization surgeries that will destroy their wild behaviors and threaten their very lives. The future of America’s wild free-roaming herds will be in jeopardy when populations are reduced to genetically non-viable levels.

Don’t be fooled by the deceptive promotion of the plan as “non-lethal.” The bill language prohibits slaughter for a year, but the plan makes that horrific outcome more likely as holding pens swell with tens of thousands more horses and no guarantee of funding for their safety or long-term care.

But don’t despair. This is a setback, but not the end of the battle.

There’s a long process ahead before this becomes law – if it ever does. Congress may choose to fund the government in FY 20 by passing a Continuing Resolution instead of a spending bill. And the BLM will have many hurdles to cross before accelerating the roundups and implementing inhumane management tools.

That means this fight goes on.

With your continued support, we will fight those who betray our wild horses and burros. We’ll fight them in court. We’ll fight them in Congress. We’ll expose the backroom deal that sold out our mustangs. We won’t rest. With your continued support, we won’t stop until our mustangs are safe.

In Freedom,

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.”

Red Alert: Call the Senate Now

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

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 tomorrow and a full committee hearing on Thursday.

That means this is the last day 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 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) 224-304, (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!

Suzanne Roy, Executive Director

 

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

Suzanne Roy, Executive Director

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!
