What’s your reason?


The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

I wanted to let you know that the Senate action on whether to legalize wild horse and burro killing has been delayed another week. (Congress is on recess this week for Columbus Day.) The earliest that it will be considered is October 17

This is great news, because it means we still have time to get those videos in to Congress! So please read Grace’s email below about our new video tool, which lets you easily record your own video on your phone or computer — and it will be automatically sent to your representatives and Senators. Please record now and tell Congress: no killing of America’s wild horses!

Thanks for standing up for our wild horses and burros.


Today, we’re launching a new effort to convince Congress to maintain the longstanding prohibition on the destruction and slaughter of healthy wild horses and burros. We’ve called. We’ve emailed. Now, let’s send a personal video message about why we’re fighting to protect these national icons.

With our new video tool you can easily record a short video that will be sent directly to your members of Congress. I just recorded mine — watch it now and then record your own.

We know you’ll have plenty to say but a few points we hope you’ll include:

  • Congress must maintain the longstanding prohibition on destroying healthy wild horses and burros and oppose any effort that would open the door to slaughter.
  • 80% of Americans oppose the slaughter of America’s wild horses.
  • The PZP birth control vaccine is a scientifically-proven, low-cost alternative that can used to humanely manage wild populations and maintain their wild free-romaning behaviors.

So record your own video now. It’s really easy. It’ll take just a few minutes of your time. And it will help us cut through the clutter in Washington and be heard on this critical issue.

For the horses,

Grace Kuhn
