Wild Horse Annie gave her life’s work to creating a law that protects wild horses and burros. Her law had two requirements: 1) motorized vehicles are not to be used to capture wild horses and burros and 2) watering holes must not be closed off or polluted. The BLM was given an exemption to the law for wild horses on public land – that’s the only place they exist! So the law is effectively castrated, dishonoring the living symbols of the west and their heroine Wild Horse Annie’s memory and life’s work.

We believe that no person or organization should be exempt from our responsibility as humans to treat animals humanely. We want the government to follow the laws of its citizenry. We want Wild Horse Annie’s simple law to be restored to its original intent and we want the cruel helicopter roundups and water manipulation to stop.

Please help save the wild horses by asking our government to follow the laws of the people and to be humane to our wild spirits of the West.

Robin Warren (Wild Mustang Robin) of Youths' Equine Alliance (YEA!), co-authored this petition.

      This is important to me because there has to be another solution. Instead of funding the inhumane way of doing this why not fund a committee of people who actually care for animals, (3rd party vets, trainers, rescue groups, grooms, and any other professional organization or person. Come up with various solutions and talk about it. Instead of keeping all the back door deals in the back bring it too the front line and let people who pay the salaries of Politicians have a say.

      I grew up with a horse. She was my companion, my friend, my helpmate. She gave me life when life was falling apart.
