NEWS: Wild horses could really use your help

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign: News & Alerts A Heart-Wrenching Scene at the Diamond Complex HMA Earlier this week, our team set out to observe yet another devastating roundup, this one at the Diamond Complex in Nevada, where the BLM plans to roundup 1,225 innocent wild horses, permanently removing 1,165 of them from their home on the range. In just one day, we watched as 126 horses lost their freedom, and three lost their lives. The scenes were both heart-wrenching, and unacceptable. At AWHC, we pride ourselves for our ability to document these roundups in order to keep the BLM accountable, but as lovers of wild horses, watching scenes like the one captured in the video below never gets easier. Nonetheless, we know how important BEING THERE, and bear witness to this heart-wrenching mistreatment of our wild horses and burros. We will never stop showing up, and doing everything in our power to keep them wild and free. If you have a minute, please take the time to watch this video, chip in any amount you are able to afford today to our Roundup Fund, and share this with your friends. We can’t keep letting the BLM get away with this violence and need to make ourselves seen and heard. Please note: this link contains upsetting images of violence against wild horses. Tell the Forest Service to STOP Roundups Amid Red Flag Fire Warnings What they’re doing right now is completely unconscionable. Last week, we contacted you about the ongoing reckless management practices being carried out against the Devil’s Garden wild horse population in California’s Modoc National Forest. As if selling and shipping horses to whoever will buy them for just $1 -- -- with no oversight, or safeguards in place --isn’t bad enough, it gets worse… Right now, in the middle of record-breaking heat and wildfires, in unhealthy air quality conditions and while under a red flag fire warning, Modoc National Forest officials are STILL using helicopters to run down and round up desperate wild horses, as they are forced to run for miles struggle to breathe in the smoky conditions. Already, 195 horses have been rounded up since last week, and it’s only going to get worse for these imperiled horses and their foals unless we speak up RIGHT NOW and demand an end to the Forest Service’s brutal treatment of California’s wild horses. Will you join me and sign the petition ...

Something to look forward to!

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign: When we began to realize that COVID-19 wasn’t going anywhere anytime soon, aside from the sadness for those who are suffering first hand from the pandemic, I began to worry for the horses who rely so heavily on all of us responsible for speaking up for them. Every year, AWHC hosts our Stay Wild event, which not only gives us a rare occasion to celebrate all things wild horses, but also allows us to financially prepare for the next year’s fight for freedom. It’s also an event that our entire team looks forward to. The idea of not being able to host this year’s event in person was so disappointing. And so we asked ourselves, how can we make this work? We decided to bring the wildness right to your screen with a creative twist to a virtual event that you won’t want to miss. This year, we’ll bring talented performers, influencers and top wild horse advocates in America into your homes for an exceptional evening of charity and entertainment. I really hope that you’ll be able to join us. WHEN: Oct 1, 2020, Pre-Show: 4:45 PM, PDT, Main Event: 5:00 - 6:00 PM PDT WHERE: Virtual WHY: To raise funds for AWHC and our work to Keep Wild Horses Wild You will be taken on a journey through the West, given an inside look at our programs and introduced to our very special guests! This is our largest — and only — big ticket event of the entire year. We rely on the proceeds of this event to fund the critical programs, equipment, veterinary and fertility control supplies and technology that we use all year round in the field to protect, treat, and manage the wild horse and burro populations we love so dearly. We really hope you (and your friends!) can make it, but if you cannot please consider donating any amount you’re able to afford, to our roundup fund here, or check out our silent auction when it opens on September 21! 100% of the proceeds from each item purchased goes directly to the American Wild Horse Campaign. I hope you can join us for this one-of-a-kind event. I know I’m looking forward to it especially right now when we are so much in need of a good celebration! Let’s keep wild horses wild! Donate ...

LAST day to submit your comment

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign: We have only 24 hours to speak up on behalf of wild horses before the BLM closes comments to its National Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Board meeting. Later this month, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) will hold a virtual gathering of the National Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Board. There they will discuss the ongoing management of wild horses and burros on public lands, as well as “measures for increasing the placement of wild horses and burros into good homes through adoptions and sales.” While adoption of captured wild horses is the best outcome for captured horses and burros, it should be the very last option when discussing population management. There’s a better, more humane, scientific AND cost effective way to manage wild horse and burro populations and AWHC is demonstrating how that’s done with our innovative gold standard PZP fertility program. Wild horses and burros cannot speak for themselves at this meeting, so they need us to speak up for them and act as citizen advisors. Comments are due TOMORROW so make sure you have your say, today; Without pressure from people like you, the BLM will have no reason to cease the roundups that harm or kill innocent animals every year. Ranchers who graze private livestock on public lands and their well funded lobbyists will make sure their voices are heard. We need to be prepared to do the same. Speak up for wild horses and burros: Submit your comment today. Thank you for lending your voice. — AWHC PS -- You can join the September 24-25 meetings at BLM.gov/live. Donate ...

Late summer but no end in sight

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign: News & Alerts As the end of summer approaches, children return to school (virtually or in person), Congress nears the end of its recess and our wild horses and burros across the West continue to endure a punishing and brutal summer roundup season. August was a busy, productive and at times heartbreaking month for our staff, partners and volunteers as we utilized the generous contributions from AWHC supporters to fight for the future of these iconic animals. Thanks to your support, we were able to send more people than ever to the field to observe, document and speak up against abuse at the roundups, launch a series of Senate ads to increase support for wild horse and burro protection, and continue to deliver humane fertility control to wild mares living on Nevada's Virginia Range, surpassing 2,400 treatments delivered! DEADLINE: Submit Comment to National Wild Horse and Burro Citizen Advisory Board Wild horses and burros need your voice, as a citizen protector: The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) just announced a virtual gathering of the National Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Board September 23-24. This is the first time the Advisory Board will meet since the BLM delivered its deadly report to Congress detailing a plan to round up nearly every wild horse and burro living today at a cost to taxpayers of $1 billion in just five years. These board members are supposed to represent stakeholders in the wild horse and burro issue. The largest stakeholder is the American public, which overwhelmingly wants our wild horses protected and preserved for generations to come. However, the Advisory Board is stacked with representatives from special interests, and consistently overlooks the public interest to promote the cattle industry's mass mustang roundup agenda. The meeting will be held virtually this year, making participation easy. Now more than ever, our wild horses and burros need your voice to demand protection and humane management of these national icons on our public lands. Do you have 3 minutes right now to submit a public comment by September 9?

Without representation by people like you, Meredith, the BLM will have no reason to cease the roundups that harm or kill innocent animals every year. For profit ranchers and their lobbyists will show out in droves, and we need to be prepared to do the same. Speak up for ...
