The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:
Over the course of the last week, we asked you to step up and help fuel our efforts to document the federal government’s inhumane helicopter roundup and removals. And Meredith, you rose to the occasion.
We set an ambitious goal of raising $30,000 to replenish our observation fund so we are able to continue deploying our humane observers to the remote corners of the West to photograph the federal government’s treatment of our beloved wild horses and burros.
Well, I’m happy to report that thanks to your support, we hit our goal! From all of us at AWHC, thank you for your passion, generosity and dedication to protecting America’s wild herds.
Thanks to your support, we have the resources to send our observers to the BLM’s final three roundups of this season and ensure no mistreatment of wild horses and burros goes unrecorded.
The record our humane observers create by documenting these operations gives us the fuel to fight for transparency and accountability within the BLM and allows us to inform and educate the media, and Congress about the inhumane treatment these beloved animals face.
There’s still over a month left in the BLM’s summer roundup season, so there’s a lot more work to do. We’ll make sure to keep you updated on our efforts in the coming days and weeks.
