Your hard work is paying off


The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

Earlier this week, we delivered 300,000 petition signatures against the killing of wild horses and burros to Rep. Amodei’s office in Nevada. And the news media joined us. Watch what that many signatures looks like walking into a Congressional office!

Last week, we traveled to Utah to document the first roundup of wild horses this season. Contrary to the claim perpetuated by the BLM, politicians and ranchers that mustangs are starving on the range, our video shows healthy wild horses being captured and it has reached over 1 million people. 

That’s just the beginning. Thanks to you, we blanketed Salt Lake City with ads,activated grassroots supporters in Utah, and held a press conference. The headlines exposed the sham wild horse summit:

Critics maintain Utah mustang meeting a secretive ‘slaughter summit’

Utah State University hosts wild horse summit, but excludes key advocates and the public

State & Federal managers discuss fate of wild horses, with media and advocates locked out

And yesterday, a bipartisan amendment was introduced in the House Representatives by Representatives Dina Titus (D-NV), Peter King (R-NY) and Jared Polis (D-CO) to reverse the deadly Stewart Amendment and restore the prohibition on killing healthy, federally-protected wild horses and burros. 

Our goal this summer has been to keep the pressure on, expose our opponents’ real agenda, and set the table for September, which we expect will be the deciding month for our movement and for the future of wild horses and burros in this country.

We’re off to a strong start. But we need you to keep up the pressure. So keep emailingcalling, donating, and sharing. We will win this fight!

Thank you,

Grace Kuhn
