STOP ROUNDUP AND SLAUGHTER AUCTIONS OF WILD HORSES NOW!

The Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management (BLM) have a legal responsibility under the Wild Free Roaming Horses and Burros Act to ensure that protected wild horses on federal lands do not end up being slaughtered. In this case, the feds have admitted that horses were herded off public lands (green and light brown above) and due to the close proximity of the capture area to a BLM Herd Management Area, we believe that many of the captured horses are federally protected wild horses.

And since kill buyers frequent livestock auctions like these, this arrangement would result in federally protected wild horses being slaughtered. The LA Times describes it this way:

The unluckiest of America’s wild horses end up in places like a livestock yard, where potential buyers coolly assess each animal’s physique, looking for a deal…In the crowd are so-called kill buyers scouting product to ship to a foreign slaughterhouse.

STOP THESE WILD HORSE ROUNDUPS NOW!!!!

      Our animals are being sold to foreign countries. They suffer in the feedlots, on the slaughter trucks and face absolute terror in the last moments of their lives. We have to be the voice for those suffering. These animals suffer and as Americans we are suppose to stand for what is right. These animals should not suffer for greed. 140,000 horses were slaughtered last year in Canada or Mexico. That is 140,000 who suffered for money. We work hard in a nationwide effort to save as many as we can but we need the US government to stand for what is right and decent. That includes all animals. We don't eat horse meat in the US so our animals should not be sold to foreign countries for that purpose. CLOSE THE BORDERS! We have feasable and viable options here in the US. We save thousands every year from the slaughter trucks. We can take care of the issue at home. Regulate breeders and the racing industry. Make them be responsible and not throw animals away when it is convenient.

      These are horses not for food, but they are beautiful creatures with distinct personalities and should be pets, not put on the tables of those in other countries. To know this practice is going on in our country makes me disgusted. To pass packed trailers on the highway knowing they may possibly be filled with horses going to slaughter makes me so completely horrified living in this country, it is animal neglect and abuse in the worse ways going on in our country. Please stop this now.
