DO NOT KILL THOSE BEAUTIFUL HORSES!!!
They are living creatures and have a right to live. Do not slaughter them. Set them free on the wilderness lands and let them live and thrive. They are a beautiful part of our heritage, and as such, deserve to continue to be a part of our future.
The Bureau of Land Management’s Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Board has just voted in favor of killing all the wild horses currently in short-term and long-term holding, approximately 45,000 horses. The only 'no' vote on the Advisory Board was from Ginger Kathrens of the Cloud Foundation.
Being extremely fond of euphemisms, the BLM Advisory Board used the term “euthanasia,” which is incorrect.
Definition of Euthanasia: “the act or practice of killing or permitting the death of hopelessly sick or injured individuals (as persons or domestic animals) in a relatively painless way for reasons of mercy.” This is in fact murder, not euthanasia.
The intent behind the Advisory Board's vote was to send a strong message to the BLM leadership that the horses should be slaughtered. This is BLM’s endgame for our wild horses.
Please sign this petition to the BLM Leadership telling them not to honor the Advisory Board's vote to destory these beautiful horses.
Then share this petition with family and friends, and ask them to share it as well so this petition gets around.
