A new bill currently sitting in the Nevada Senate, AB 329, aims to strip wild horses and burros of their federal protections under the Wild Free Roaming Horses and Burros Act by removing them from the definition of "wildlife" and denying them their basic rights to water.
Nevada's horses already face cruel helicopter roundups, sterilization and slaughter. If AB 329 passes, these animals would no longer be entitled to water on public lands.
AB 329 is largely supported by cattle ranchers who want nothing more than to force wild horses and burros off public lands in order to maximize their own profits.
Tell the Nevada Senate Natural Resources Committee not to discriminate against wild horses and burros. Tell them they are just like any other animal and shouldn't be denied water. Sign the petition today to oppose AB 329.
