The Restore Our American Mustangs (ROAM) Act (S. 1579), recently introduced by Senator Robert C. Byrd (D-WV), will restore protections for our country’s wild horses and burros that were stripped away in recent years. Not only will the ROAM Act ensure that our mustangs and burros are once again protected from slaughter, but it seeks to reclaim land – some 19 million acres – taken away from these magnificent animals. Please take a moment to contact your U.S. Senators today and ask them to cosponsor this vital legislation.
To take action visit AWI’s Compassion Index and contact your US Senator’s today! Please forward this eAlert to everyone you know asking them to help protect America’s wild horses and burros. Direct link: http://capwiz.com/compassionindex/issues/alert/?alertid=14082831
(*Our thanks to Chris and the Animal Welfare Institute for making “mustangs on the hill” a real success!*)
