We urge senators to stand strong with the horses and protect them. Please do not allow the dangerous and violent expulsion of America’s horses and burros from our lands.

Background: In May of 2017 the United States, Department of the Interior, Bureau of Land Management (BLM) released their 2018 “BUDGET JUSTIFICATIONS” with a call for approval of proposed provisions that if passed would strip protections and effectively allow the BLM to shoot and kill wild horses and burros and sell wild horses and burros for slaughter.
In July 2017, the House Appropriations Committee voted to adopt an amendment to its version of the Interior Appropriations bill that removed protective language for wild horses. If a bill is signed into law without protective language the door would be open to the mass killing of wild horses and burros, beginning with over 45,000 wild horses and burros currently held in government corrals and pastures.
 On Sept 9, 2016 the BLM Advisory Board voted to recommend EXTERMINATING over 45,000 innocent wild American horses and burros who have been brutally rounded up and are currently held wrongly under encampment.
