American's Wild Horses and Burros are on the brink of extinction. As long as the BLM kowtows to Cattlemen, Oil & Gas, and other mining operations the animals will get the short end of the stick.
The herds are, with malice aforethought, being reduced in numbers too low and the herds are becoming genetically devastated. Eventually this will lead to their extinction through inbreeding. Especially at risk is the most famous wild horse herd in the world. The Pryor Mountain herd and the Iconic Stallion Cloud.
All this is a direct result of the BLM's favoring the cattlemen associations and industy i.e. minng. Cattle are destroying our public lands at a record pace and mining operations have all but emptied the aquifer.
This criminal organization operates under the name 'Wild Horse and Burro Program', a department of the BLM, They terrorize and subject our wildlife to undue stress which is a direct violation of the Wild Free-Roaming Horse and Burro Act passed unanimously by Congress in 1971 and signed into law by President Nixon.
Their actions have been directly involved in hundreds of animals being injured and killed in senseless roundups over the past 40 years. It grows more gruesome everyday.
Please support our efforts to save the lives of these gifts from the Almighty by removing their 'protection' out of the very hands that wish them extinction.
