We have an urgent situation that requires your immediate attention. The famed and beloved Salt River wild horses in the Tonto National Forest near Mesa, Arizona are in immediate threat of total eradication, thanks to a U.S. Forest Service plan to begin rounding up these horses as early as Friday, August 7!
These special horses have been present on the lands in and around the Salt River for over a century, but the Forest Service is claiming that they are "estray livestock" and intends to "impound" all "unauthorized" horses beginning in just three short days. Because the Salt River horses lack federal protection, legally they can be sold for slaughter.
The Forest Service is heading down an irreversible path to destroy this important heritage herd that is beloved by locals and tourists from across the world. We can't let this happen. Please click below to speak up for the amazing Salt River wild horses today!
Thanks for everything you do - together we can and will save these horses!!
