Tomorrow Tuesday, June 26: Crucial Horse Slaughter Vote
Tomorrow, Tuesday, June 26, the U.S. House of Representatives will consider the Agriculture Appropriations bill for 2013. Please take a moment to urge your representative to oppose any amendment that would allow horse slaughter in the U.S.
On June 19, the House Appropriations Committee approved Rep. Jim Moran’s amendment to the Agriculture Appropriations Bill to prohibit the use of taxpayer dollars for horse slaughter inspections in fiscal year 2013!
We must keep up the fight for horses! We need all horse advocates to contact their representatives TODAY and urge them to oppose any amendment that would permit the use of taxpayer dollars to support horse slaughter in the U.S.

The American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign (AWHPC) is dedicated to preserving American wild horses and burros in viable free-roaming herds for generations to come, as part of our national heritage. Supported by a coalition of over 50 organizations, its grassroots campaign seeks:
* A suspension of roundups in all but verifiable emergency situations while the entire BLM wild horse and burro program undergoes fiscal and scientific reform;
* Higher Appropriate Management Levels (AML) for wild horses and burros on those rangelands designated for them based on a fairer allocation of resources on our public lands;
* Implementation of in-the-wild management, which would keep wild horses and burros on the range and save taxpayers millions of dollars annually by avoiding the removal and stockpiling of wild horses in government holding facilities.
