    This must end and the foals and families allowed to live without the torture and the removals that will destroy the last herds of our wild horses this summer.

    The evidence against BP and DOI/BLM is mounting and yet this roundup will kill wild horses and destroy another herd. The moratorium is need now, ASAP.

    Stop this roundup, BLM!

    Observers will be allowed toward the last days of this roundup only. All completely set up and controlled by BLM for the safety of humans and least of all the horses who need us there to see what is done to them. We have the right to know who dies, how and why.
