Act Now: Stop the Wild Horse Sellout Plan

On May 22, 2019, the House Appropriations Committee approved the 2020 Interior-Environment appropriations legislation, including language requested by the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, the Humane Society of the United States., the ASPCA, and Return to Freedom establishing a $6 million “pilot” program for wild horse management. The funds will be used to round up and remove large numbers of wild horses from their habitats, and, according to Rep. Chris Stewart (R-UT), to sterilize these free-roaming animals. The “pilot” is Phase 1 of a devastating, ten-year plan to round up and remove an astounding 130,000 wild horses and burros — more than even exist today — from their habitats.  Please join AWHC in opposing the plan and asking the Senate to reject it.

 

Use Your Voice to Stop Dangerous Sterilization Surgeries on Mares

The BLM is at it again. For the third time in as many years, the agency is planning dangerous and painful surgical sterilization experiments on wild mares in Oregon. The BLM abandoned previous attempts to conduct the controversial procedures (ovariectomy via colpotomy) in the face of multiple lawsuits, a federal injunction and widespread public outrage. The BLM is currently accepting public comments on its third attempt to implement the procedures. With your help, we stopped these cruel experiments twice before and we’ll do it again to protect innocent wild mares in Oregon from being brutalized. The deadline for public comments is June 12, so please act today! 

 

Sign the Petition to #FreeTheTwins

Something miraculous happened a few weeks ago at the BLM Hines Corrals in Oregon. A mare who was rounded up from the Warm Springs Herd Management Area in October 2018 recently gave birth… to twins! BLM employees asked Skydog Sanctuary if it would adopt the miracle mare and her twins but later blocked the adoption because the mare is slated to be used in the barbaric sterilization study mentioned above. This unique and innocent family deserves to go to Skydog Sanctuary. Please take one moment to sign the petition below!

BREAKING: The spay experiments have been dropped

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

We wanted to let you know that we have just received word that the Bureau of Land Management is dropping the controversial experiments to surgically remove the ovaries of wild mares in Oregon in response to our collaborative lawsuit with The Cloud Foundation, the Animal Welfare Institute and photographer Carol Walker! 

We now hope that the agency will reconsider all plans to conduct this inhumane research and focus instead on humane, scientifically recommended forms of population management, including PZP fertility control. 

We couldn’t have entered into this lawsuit without your support. Thank you for standing with us and our wild horses and burros.

Gratefully,
