Help stop Rep. Stewart’s dangerous and barbaric proposal to include the practice of surgical sterilization that could lead to the extermination of America’s Wild Horse population from being part of the BLM’s FY2019 plan. Tell the Senate to vote NO to any markup that includes this language!
Last week, the House Appropriations Committee passed an amendment introduced by Rep. Chris Stewart that would authorize the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to create same-sex or non-reproducing wild horse herds utilizing inhumane surgical sterilization techniques that are extremely dangerous.
The next stop for this bill is the Senate for a markup and voice vote. This is happening tomorrow, Tuesday, June 12th, 2018.
We need your help now! We MUST stop the dangerous and barbaric proposal to include the practice of surgical sterilization that could lead to the extermination of America’s Wild Horse population from being part of the BLM’s FY2019 plan!
How can you help?
Call the (listed below) of the Senate Interior, Environment and Related Agencies Appropriations Subcommittee today and tell them:
- DO NOT pass any language that allows for the creation of same-sex/non-reproducing herds, barbaric sterilization, killing, or “unlimited sale” of America’s wild horses and burros.
- SUGGEST SAFE & COST EFFECTIVE WAYS to control fertility in wild horse herds such as the use of PZP.
- COMMIT TO HUMANE ALTERNATIVES like rewilding horses onto available native and non native lands.
