Join us in asking Secretary of the Department of Interior Deb Haaland and Director of the Bureau of Land Management Tracy Stone-Manning to meet with wild horse advocates during the Save Our Wild Horses DC Conference. They have ignored all efforts by advocates to meet.
Help Save our Wild Horses from horrible round ups, deaths and a life time in holding pens.
These are our wild Horses on our public lands and we want a voice in this process and humane management.
Save Our Wild Horses
For more information on this issues
Our wild horses are being rounded up and their population decimated on our public lands by a government agency who was appointed to protect them. Time and time again this agency has caved to special interests, destroying our public lands with mining, privately owned livestock, gas and oil.
Our wild horses are chased for miles with helicopters; many horses are breaking their legs during the chase, and many others are shot and killed for not being considered a perfect horse. Once rounded up the wild horse family bands are separated, with stallions shipped to one holding facility and mares & foals shipped to another. They call out to each other while the livestock trailers they are forced into drive off in different directions.
Most of our captured wild horses live out their lives in holding pens and feedlots with no room to run. The government does not consider 100,000 acres suitable for 500 horses, but they will put 4000 horses on 100 acres in pens.
The government says there are too many wild horses. Yet when the Wild and Free-Roaming Horse & Burro Act of 1971 was signed, they considered 26,000 to be too few horses.
We are asking Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland and Director of the Bureau of Land Management Tracy Stone-Manning to meet with wild horse advocates during the Save Our Wild Horses DC Conference and Assembly in April. Both the Secretary and the Director have ignored all efforts by advocates to sit down and have real conversations about the issues facing our public lands, wildlife, and wild horses in the American west. To this date they have only met with large corporate and ranching interests.
Please help us be signing this petition asking both of them to meet with the advocates who only want what is best for our wild horses and public lands.
