Dear Wild Horse and Burro Defenders;
Many thanks to all of you who contacted Secretary Salazar’s office yesterday to ask him to rescind the appointment of Callie Hendrickson to BLM’s National Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Board. DOI & BLM received thousands of calls in protest all thanks to you!
Now, there is another important step you can take to stop the Hendrickson appointment. In conjunction with American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign, Animal Law Coalition, Front Range Equine Rescue, International Fund for Horses, Protect Mustangs, Respect4Horses, and Wild Horse Freedom Federation, we’ve created a petition asking the Secretary to rescind Ms. Hendrickson’s appointment and stop BLM from creating an Advisory Board stacked with pro-slaughter members. The petition with everyone’s signature will be presented at the next BLM Advisory Board Meeting.
Please take a moment to sign this petition on behalf of our wild horses and burros and share it with all your friends and colleagues. Some of you may have seen a petition or two out there on this subject. And we’d like to thank Debbie Catalina very much for agreeing to close her petition in order to support this unified effort.
Speaking with one voice we are a powerful force to protect wild horses still roaming in precious freedom as well as those held captive!
