Tell Government To Stop Wild Horse Roundups – Please Send 3 E-mails
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is pushing ahead with its plan to remove 6,000 wild horses, like the Utah horses pictured here, from the range in six western states between now and October. This will bring the total removed for 2010 to more than 12,000. The first major roundup, Owyhee Complex in Nevada, is scheduled to start this week – click here for updates.
Until the helicopters descend, wild horses are free mustangs, living with their families in the mountains and canyons. The BLM roundups will forever change their lives – stampeded into trap pens, they will never see their families again. Some will be adopted, others will be sold to the highest bidder. Most will be shipped to government holding facilities in the Midwest where they will be warehoused for the rest of their lives – with the two most important things taken from them: their family and freedom.
