URGENT: PLEASE HELP SAVE THE WILD HORSES
My family and I are joining the Barbi Twins and the Animal Welfare Institute (AWI) in their efforts to save the last of America’s wild horses. This is an important bipartisan cause and I am asking all Americans to join with us before it is too late.
I’m a little prejudiced when it comes to horses. I have always loved them. I currently have about 68; 25-30 were rescued directly from slaughter. I got involved 8 years ago, when AWI first made me aware that American horses are being slaughtered and shipped overseas for human consumption. It’s a shame horses – or any animal – be treated this way when horses are the foundation of America. Horses were a way to travel to get to where we are today, and it is our job to protect them.
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), the agency in charge of protecting wild horses, has been rounding them up at an alarming rate, supposedly for their own good. Sadly, there are more wild horses in holding pens than in the wild. Something is wrong with that, so we must act now before the BLM has managed these magnificent animals into extinction. I believe that we should leave the horses to run naturally on their land. Wild horses evolved in North America before spreading throughout the world so it is important that we protect them from the BLM. The polls show that over 70% of American’s agree. The people have spoken.
Folks, please join my family and friends at the Animal Welfare Institute by visiting, http://www.awionline.org/wildhorses, before December 28 2009 to see how you can help with this important American cause.
