Tomorrow, Congress will hear from us
The following is from the American Horse Council:
Congress returns to work on Capitol Hill this week after the August recess. Among the issues it will tackle: a dangerous proposal that could result in the roundup of more than 100,000 wild horses and burros over the next decade — that’s more than even exist today!
We must make sure that the Senate rejects the funding request to begin implementation of this devastating proposal.
Misleadingly billed as a “path forward,” the propsal is actually a road to destruction for America’s remaining wild herds. It’s opposed by grassroots organizations and groups with boots-on-the-ground experience protecting and humanely managing wild horses and burros in the wild. It advances the interests of the cattle industry — which seeks to clear the public lands of mustangs in order to maximize subsidized livestock grazing — at the expense of the public and our wild horses and burros.
That’s why we need your voice, and we need it now.
Tomorrow, we are launching Wild Horse Week in Washington — three days of actions you can take to oppose this plan. We’ll include a message you can phone-in to your senators, a way for you to create a storm on social media, and other actions to support our collective defense for our wild horses and burros.
So please stay strong, stay ready and stay tuned!
