Weigh in for Humane Wild Horse & Burro Management in Nevada's Blue Wing Complex

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is seeking public scoping comments in the development of a ten-year management plan for the wild horses and burros in the Blue Wing Complex in northern Nevada. Under pressure from area ranchers, the BLM is likely to develop plans for perpetual roundups and removals of hundreds of wild horses and burros from the public lands in this area -- unless they hear from you! Now is the time to weigh in for humane management of our wild horses and burros on our public lands. Please act today!

As the first American woman to fly in combat, U.S. Congresswoman Martha McSally (R-AZ), a retired Air Force Colonel, is a military hero. And now she is a hero for America's wild horses as well!. This week, Rep. McSally asked the House Interior Appropriations Subcommittee to incorporate language in the 2017 budget bill that would prevent the BLM from turning over captured wild horses to other federal, state and local agencies for use as "work animals." Rep. McSally is concerned, as are we, that this will provide a potential backdoor route to slaughter.

When our elected officials take action to protect our wild horses and burros, it's important to let them know that we appreciate it. Please call Rep. McSally's office at 202-225-2242 to thank her for acting to protect wild horses and burros from slaughter.
