Feds to Round Up America’s Most Iconic Wild Horse Herd: Say No!

Recent news

100k signatures delivered to stop the roundup

Dear Friends,

We wanted to let you know that on Friday, April 5 we had an incredible turnout at a rally to stop the roundup of Utah's Onaqui wild horses at the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) state office in Salt Lake City.

People from all over the country – including New York, Florida, Tennesse, Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada, and California – joined a fabulous group of Utahns to be a voice for these horses.

After the rally, AWHC and our coalition partner, the Salt River Wild Horse Management Group, delivered 100,000 of your signatures and met with top BLM Utah officials about collaborating for the humane management of the Onaqui wild horses.

The BLM is to be commended for its work to develop existing fertility control program there (in conjunction with Wild Horses of America Foundation) and its openness to collaborating with our groups to further expand the program as a humane alternative to large-scale roundups from this Herd Management Area (HMA).

The meeting opened a positive dialogue between our groups and the BLM, and we plan to meet again with the Utah officials in 1-2 weeks to further discuss how we can collaborate for the benefit of the beloved Onaqui wild horses.

Thank you for taking the time to sign our petition. You have made a difference!
