NO horse should ever be subjected to this

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign: The only “crime” wild horses have committed is being born wild. With a fair resource allocation, our public lands could easily support the existing wild horse population -- and claims to the contrary are being promoted by the livestock industry, which has everything to gain from the horses’ elimination. NO wild horse should be cruelly stampeded by helicopters, trapped and sent to crowded holding pens. NO mare should have her ovaries barbarically removed through an outdated surgical procedure that has been condemned by veterinarians, animal protection groups, and scientists. NO foal should be separated from his or her family and sold off in auctions, sometimes for as little as $1 (in the case of horses removed from Forest Service land). AWHC is fighting to make sure that wild horses and burros are protected. And we’re getting results -- we’ve delayed roundups and proven that they are unnecessary with our model fertility control program. We've prevented the BLM from conducting dangerous and inhumane sterilization surgeries that would endanger individual horses and threaten wild herds. We’re currently fighting to stop the BLM from rounding up 3,000 wild horses in Wyoming and to prevent the Forest Service’s ‘horse dumping’ policy. When you donate today and tomorrow, you DOUBLE the resources available to our team to continue to give wild horses a FIGHTING voice. They don’t have a voice, so we have to use ours. Thank you, American Wild Horse Campaign Donate (2x!) ...

Tomorrow, we’re launching our new webinar on wild horses [RSVP!]

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign: We’ll be the first to say it: It can be difficult to stay up to speed with the complex issues affecting our nation’s wild horses and burros. With so many federal agencies, acronyms and applicable laws, it’s easy to get confused. That’s why we’re going to break it down for you TOMORROW, April 30, with the launch of our ‘Wild Horses 101’ webinar series. You can RSVP here. We’ll be discussing the origins of wild horses in the Americas, Wild Horse Annie and the beginning of the movement to save America’s wild horses, some of the major policies and proposals being implemented and considered by the Bureau of Land Management, and so much more! We want this to be an interactive and engaging experience, so during the webinar, you will have the chance to ask questions and we’d be glad to answer them. We hope to hear from you and look forward to speaking with you all, American Wild Horse Campaign P.S. -- If you already registered before the webinar was postponed, you do not need to register again.

Exceeding all expectations

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign: This past weekend, AWHC launched a major initiative, #KeepWyWyld, as part of our national effort to prevent the Bureau of Land Management from moving forward with a plan known as The Wyoming Wild Horse Wipeout. If it moves forward, irreversible damage will be done to Wyoming's cherished wild horses and half of the state's wild horse habitat will be gone for good. That's why I'm reaching out to you now. Since launching this initiative just last week, the outpouring of support has been incredible. In fact, it's exceeding all of our expectations. But if we're going to succeed and save these horses, then we all need to do our part and we don't have much time. Which is why we've outlined five ways you can get involved and provided an update on how we're tracking toward our goals ahead of the April 30 deadline for public comments. Here Are 5 Ways You Can #KeepWyomingWyld This Weekend April 30 is the deadline to submit public comments in opposition to the Bureau of Land Management’s Wyoming Wild Horse Wipeout proposal, which would result in more than 3,000 wild horses being rounded up and permanently removed from public lands. That gives us less than ONE week to PROVE to the BLM that the American people oppose this devastating mustang eradication plan. Wyoming’s tourism slogan is “Don’t Fence Me In,” and the state’s iconic wild horses symbolize that sentiment. In fact, the Pilot Butte Wild Horse Scenic Loop in the Checkerboard is promoted by the state’s tourism boards as “something you and your family will never forget because Sweetwater County's cherished wild horses are living examples of a wide-open landscape and untamed frontier spirit.” Incredibly, the BLM’s plan would eradicate every single wild horse from the viewing loop, fencing these symbols of the wide open West in dismal feedlots! Write to Wyoming’s tourism boards here and ask them to join our efforts to prevent the destruction of the iconic Wyoming Checkerboard mustangs. Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon has the power to oppose and potentially change the course of the Wyoming Wild Horse Wipeout. In fact, his state is looking to purchase a large chunk of these lands from Occidental Petroleum and could designate the area as a recreational resource in which wild horses are protected. Take part in AWHC’s national petition drive to demonstrate the immense public pressure in opposition to the ...
