With the Bureau of Land Management's (BLM) holding space and budget maxed out, 2014 is a dangerous year for America's wild horses and burros.
This is why we're embarking on a new effort to pressure more members of Congress to stand with us in our fight to Keep Wild Horses Wild.
We're taking the first step today by announcing the “Keep Wild Horses Wild Pledge.” By signing the pledge, members of Congress agree to oppose any initiative to slaughter federally-protected wild horses and burros and support the implementation of reforms recommended in the National Academy of Sciences report.
Common sense, right?
So, what are you waiting for? Tell your representatives in Washington to sign the pledge.
With your help, we’ll expand support for our movement in the halls of Congress and give the horses the protection they need at this perilous moment.
The timing could not be more critical. The BLM’s allies in the ranching industry have already begun to make moves to open the gates of long term holding facilities – where 50,000 wild horses and burros are stockpiled – to slaughter kill buyers.
We need legislative support and we need it now. Contact your representatives and ask them to join us.
We’ll be in touch with more ways you can get involved in this campaign soon. Until then, thanks for your support!
