Wyoming Wild Horses Need Your Voice
The Bureau of Land Management's (BLM's) massive wild horse wipeout and public lands giveaway in the Wyoming Checkerboard continues with the agency's latest plan to round up and remove 500 wild horses from the Adobe Town, Salt Wells Creek and Great Divide Basin Herd Management Areas (HMAs). Despite the fact that well over half of the land in the Checkerboard is public, the BLM now states: "For all intents and purposes, we consider all of the Checkerboard private" and under the control of the Rock Springs Grazing Association.
Our legal fight against this travesty continues, with oral arguments at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit scheduled for September 19 in Denver. Meanwhile, help us demonstrate massive ongoing public opposition to the BLM's destruction of the magnificent wild horses of the Wyoming Checkerboard... Please take action today.
Tell BLM Citizen Advisory Board to Support Humane Wild Horse Management
You still have a chance to let the BLM National Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Board know how you feel about the federal wild horse and burro management program. This is an opportunity to take a stand against the BLM's mass roundup and sterilization plans. The next meeting of this citizen advisory board will take place September 8-9, 2016 in Elko, Nevada. If you have not done so already, please click below to submit comments for the Board's consideration. If you can attend the meeting, click below for details.
