Wild Horses in Danger from the BLMYour Help is Needed NOW to Save Them!

Dear Wild Horse Supporters,

It is regrettable that the recently released Government Accounting Office's report failed to hold the BLM accountable for rounding up some 30,000 more horses than could be adopted over the past eight years. The GAO looked only at the train wreck and not the reasons
that the train left the tracks in the first place. As you know, the BLM has proposed killing the horses in long-term holding to remedy their self-made budget crisis. We cannot allow this to happen and I am concerned that we don't have much time to stop them from carrying
through with this despicable plan. These horses belong to us, the American public, and they should be returned to the wild, not killed by the thousands.

As I write this, the BLM is rounding up over 400 healthy horses to be removed from the Cedar Mountain Herd in Utah. It is likely that only a handful of theses horses will be adopted and the rest will end up in long-term holding where they are in danger of being killed.

Please act now to save America's wild horses, here are some things you can do: Contact your local papers, radio stations and national media outlets.

Contact both your Senators and your Representative: call
202-224-3121 or visit for contact information.

Contact President-Elect Obama at to ask that he take immediate action to protect our wild horses. We must also make sure that any BLM budget increases do not go to funding increased round-ups and the killing of horses.
