Urge BLM RAC to Recommed Common Sense Solutions for Wild Horses
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Northeastern Great Basin Resource Advisory Council (RAC) meets in Ely, Nevada next week. Currently, this RAC supports the surgical sterilization of wild horses on the range, and the removal of as many as 4,000 of these federally-protected animals from the public lands in eastern Nevada this fall. Please tell this citizen advisory board to stop promoting solutions that Americans do not support and start recommending ways to help wild horses through humane and socially acceptable management strategies. Please make your voice heard!

Public Sentiment Triumphs for Wild Horse Again
A year ago, public outrage saved the Salt River wild horses from roundup and eradication from the Tonto National Forest near Phoenix, Arizona. Now, community action saved a band of beloved wild horses after they were captured and removed from their home range in Alton, New Mexico. The horses faced sale at a slaughter auction before the neighborhood mobilized to save the horses and the Wild Horse Observers Association filed a lawsuit. Now the New Mexico Department of Agriculture has officially returned the horses to their home and the residents of Alto are celebrating!
