Why this petition matters
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.
