Protect America's Wild Horses from a Dangerous Plan

A plan being considered in Congress right now could mean the beginning of the end of wild horses and burros.

Drawn up by cattle industry lobbyists, the plan calls for the roundup of 130,000 wild horses and burros over the next decade – more than exist today on the range. This will triple the number of wild horses and burros incarcerated at taxpayer expense, at a cost of close to $1 billion over the next decade, without any guarantee of long-term funding to ensure safety from slaughter for these cherished animals.

Herd numbers will diminish beyond minimum viable populations, gruesome sterilization experiments for wild mares will remain on the table, and herds left on public lands will be manipulated with unnatural sex ratios that will wreak havoc on social organization and dynamics.

The plan is a ten year attack on wild horse populations, and nothing short of a surrender of the decades-long fight for fair treatment, humane management and preservation of our nation’s wild horse and burro herds. 

We call on Congress to stop this disastrous plan, and to vote against the appropriations that threaten the future of wild horses and burros.
