STOP ROUNDUP AND SLAUGHTER AUCTIONS OF WILD HORSES NOW!

The Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management (BLM) have a legal responsibility under the Wild Free Roaming Horses and Burros Act to ensure that protected wild horses on federal lands do not end up being slaughtered. In this case, the feds have admitted that horses were herded off public lands (green and light brown above) and due to the close proximity of the capture area to a BLM Herd Management Area, we believe that many of the captured horses are federally protected wild horses.

And since kill buyers frequent livestock auctions like these, this arrangement would result in federally protected wild horses being slaughtered. The LA Times describes it this way:

The unluckiest of America’s wild horses end up in places like a livestock yard, where potential buyers coolly assess each animal’s physique, looking for a deal…In the crowd are so-called kill buyers scouting product to ship to a foreign slaughterhouse.

STOP THESE WILD HORSE ROUNDUPS NOW!!!!

      Our wild horses belong in the west not cattle or sheep.

      These horses have more right to graze PUBLIC lands than ranchers that have their own land....

      Humans should feel indebted to horses and treat them with great respect. Where is the justice? Where is their protection? This is just screaming for a crackdown!
