Return the Wild Horses to the Wild!

    1. Petition by

      Josephine Dark

      Las Vegas, NV

For years the BLM has rounded up wild horses from ranges that in the 1970's was promised to wild horses and burros in Nevada and surrounding South Western states. The numbers of wild horses still running the open range has been drastically reduced by the BLM mainly because of pressures from ranchers. It has gotten to the point now that the BLM is refusing to allow wild horses on public land at all other than a few select heards. Despite the fact these ranges were and still are protected by law for wild horses and burros, the BLM has manipulated the facts and lied to remove them. The BLM is now saying that it cant afford to keep and feed the horses they have previously and continue to take from there native lands, and are repeatedly trying to euthanize them. They were stopped by the people of Colorado, but it is only a matter of time if we dont do something now to force the BLM to release them!

It is time to stop the government from ignoring laws in order to make a few bucks. The lies and murder of these native Nevadens must stop! These lands belong to the horses and the BLM must be forced to follow the laws in place to protect these magnificent animals.

For more information on these atrocities to nature, misuse of our public lands, and the blatent disregard for our the laws by the BLM and the Dept of the Interior. Please take a look at the following 6 part documentary.


Please sign my petition to stop the killing of our nations wild horses and demand the BLM return the horses to the ranges protected by law for them!       

In addition to this petition please write the BLM, and your congressmen now!

BE THE VOICE OF A WILD HORSE!

      Because the BLM is the Bureau of Lyin' Motherfuckers, completely sold out to ranching, mining and drilling interests. Public land belogs to all Americans.

      To the BLM:

      There is NO WAY you can provide for the needs of all these horses captured from the wild. Why can't you just leave them be? Yes, some will starve, but that is nature's way of thinning the herds. If you would just leave them alone, they would eventually reach a sustainable population level on their own, as all wild animals do. If you must capture some, make sure they get good homes, and don't just keep them penned up indefinitely. Those horses live on land specifically set aside for them! Why are you removing and killing them??

      Oh, and selling them to foreign meat companies is a no-no, too. You think we don't know about s*** like this?

      Give the 20 million acres you STOLE from the wild horses back to them and return all the 40,000+ poor souls wasting away in "holding". These animals have been stripped of their homes, their families, everything about their lives. AND it costs the taxpayer MILLIONS of $$$ to not only attack and harm the wild ones this way but also it removes publicly owned wild life from public lands. Americans have a right to have ALL of our wild horses on ALL of the lands granted to them under the 1971 law -- every place they were living on public lands at the time that law went into effect. You MUST return this land to them or comparable lands and RETURN THESE ANIMALS to the wild!

      If we keep transforming nature to a domestic garden there will be no "wildness" left to learn from, enjoy or participate in. This is a very important issue.
