Tell Secretary Salazar: Stop Selling America's Wild Horses to Slaughter
Federal wild horse roundups continue even as the government has been exposed for selling thousands of America's cherished wild horses to a known kill buyer who ships horses to slaughterhouses in Mexico. AWHPC's Deniz Bolbol is just back from the latest helicopter roundup in Nevada and has filed this devastating video of a wild stallion breaking his leg as he tries in vain to escape the trap. Enough is enough. It's time to make your voice heard! Please stand with us in telling Interior Secretary Ken Salazar that he must order an emergency stop to the wild horse roundup program. Our petition campaign has generated 12,000 signatures in three short days. Can you help us triple that by signing & sharing this petition and forcing Salazar to address this issue?
Just 2 Days Left to Oppose California Mustang Roundup!

Please take a minute to register your opposition to this unnecessary roundup of two of California's few remaining wild horse populations. Encourage the agency to utilize humane fertility control to suppress population growth when necessary. To submit comments, please click here or below.
