The Toughest Fight Yet

The following article is from the American Wild Horse Preservation.

It’s unimaginable, but it’s true. The State of Wyoming is pulling the trigger on a flat–out assault on wild horses … this action coming right after one-third of all wild horses remaining in the state were relentlessly rounded up and removed just two months ago!

Last week, backed by powerful ranchers, Wyoming Governor Matt Mead carried out his threat to file a lawsuit against the Bureau of Land Management to get even more wild horses removed from his state.….the very same state that hypocritically promotes wild horses in its tourism ads proclaiming that “not everything was meant to be tamed” and touting Wyoming as a place where the free and unbridled spirit of the West is still alive!

It’s clear that the governor places no value on wild horses — the very embodiment of the Western values his state promotes. He and his allies won’t stop until mustangs are wiped off Wyoming’s landscape forever.

Only 2,500 wild horses are left in the entire state, and we know from experience that we can’t count on the government to defend them.

Can we count on you to help us defend Wyoming’s wild horses in this latest and critically important legal battle? 

Although we are already waging numerous legal battles throughout the West, we have no choice but to file a motion to intervene in this latest greed-driven legal attack. The Cloud Foundation, renowned photographers Carol Walker and Kimerlee Curyl and our founding organization Return to Freedom are lined up to join us in this battle.

Make no mistake, if Wyoming is successful in this lawsuit, more Western states will follow suit. 

Wild horses cannot afford to lose this fight

This could be their last stand. Please help if you can today.
