You Won’t Want to Miss this News

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign: News & Alerts Oppose Another Mass Roundup of Nevada Mustangs The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is accepting public comments on another massive helicopter roundup of Nevada mustangs -- this one in the Eagle Complex on the border with Utah. The BLM allows just 145-265 wild horses to live in this 1,160-square-mile public lands area, while authorizing the annual equivalent of 4,400 cow/calf pairs to graze there. The action perpetuates the BLM's broken cycle of roundups and removals and failure to use humane and scientifically-recommended birth control to manage wild horses and burros in the wild. Please take a stand against this waste and cruelty now by clicking below.  The Latest: Wild Horses and Capitol Hill Well, they’re back at it again—Congress has begun work on the Department of the Interior/ BLM's budget for the Fiscal Year 2019, which starts on October 1. And again, the House of Representatives is looking for ways to harm horses on the western range. This year, the House Subcommittee on Interior and Environment Appropriations has forwarded report language that, while avoiding a direct attempt to allow outright slaughter, instructs BLM to start the process to “immediately begin designing the regulatory framework and technical protocols for an active sterilization program.” The report language also directs BLM to "analyze" an option to kill healthy horses older than 10 years -- less than half the lifespan for many wild horses!

In the crosshairs over the next four months: nearly 6,000 wild horses and burros, currently living peacefully on our public lands in eight Western states.

Something horrific could happen to horses in Oregon

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign: News & Alerts The BLM is planning dangerous surgical sterilization experiments on wild mares in Oregon. Warning: this may be hard to read. In the proposed "ovariectomy via colpotomy," procedure, a veterinarian makes an incision in the mare's vagina, inserts his arm into the vaginal cavity, manually locates the ovaries and rips them out using an "ecraseur," a rod-like device with a chain on the end. The painful procedure will subject mares to the risk of infection, hemorrhage and evisceration, and could cause mares in the early to mid-stages of pregnancy to abort their fetuses. WE HAVE TO STOP THIS. Click here to submit a comment OPPOSING this cruel treatment. It is crucial that we act now. The BLM has only provided ONE WEEK to send comments opposing the proposal. And if we don’t take action today, these experiments could mean living hell for helpless horses in Oregon. Can you take a stand for wild horses now? The plan the BLM is proposing is being done without any academic affiliation whatsoever. The procedures they’re proposing is so cruel that in 2013, the National Academy of Sciences advised that the risk of infection “makes it inadvisable for field application.” There is no reason for believing that these tactics are less risky, expensive, or painful than other birth control methods. It makes no sense, and yet unless we act TODAY, horses in Oregon will be put through these barbaric experiments. Submit your comment today. Thank you for taking a stand. Suzanne Donate ...

DEADLINE: Make a call for wild horses

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign: The House Appropriations Committee markup for the 2019 spending bill is tomorrow. CALL NOW. We need you to tell your Representative: keep mustang and burro slaughter and killing OUT of Fiscal Year 2019 spending legislation. Call your Representative today. We don’t have any time to waste. Thanks, Suzanne As early as next week, the House Appropriations Committee will consider its Fiscal Year (FY) 2019 Interior Department spending bill, including funding for the Bureau of Land Management's (BLM's) Wild Horse and Burro Program. The current draft of the bill protects wild horses and burros from killing and slaughter. HOWEVER, Rep. Chris Stewart (R-UT) is likely to again introduce an amendment to strip these long-standing protections, placing as many as 100,000 wild horses and burros in holding facilities and on the range in danger of being killed or sold for slaughter. Last year, the House approved Rep. Stewart's lethal amendment, but the Senate rejected it. This year, with Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke and his BLM doubling down on their request for permission to kill and slaughter our mustangs, these national icons are again in danger. Please call your Representative today and ask him/her to weigh in with Appropriators to keep mustang and burro slaughter and killing OUT of Fiscal Year 2019 spending legislation.  Thank you!  The AWHC Team Donate ...

25 MUSTANGS SAVED FROM SLAUGHTER – 25 MINIATURE HORSES AT RISK – CAN WE SAVE THEM? CHILLY PEPPER ON STANDBY

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: THE CLOCK IS TICKING on 25 new lives. - 25 Miniatures are at risk of dying, and we need your help to save them... We came together and saved 25 more mustangs this last week. Thank You for making that possible. Out of those 25, we brought home 4 orphans and a badly injured mare and baby. Thankfully the extended network of folks came together to help. As always, Chilly Pepper incurred ALL THE COSTS to rescue them, but once again they are OFF OUR BOOKS, and safe and sound until they find their forever homes.** Unfortunately with those 25 we incurred some hefty vet bills. I just saw one of them this morning. This bill is $1972.85, which is pretty much going to wipe out most of the budget. We also have another vet bill for emergency care for Valentine. Matt came home to find him in desperate need of vet care, and although the Vet did every thing she could my beautiful boy died. It is heartbreaking to be gone for so long and have a horse get sick and not make it. We saved 25, but my beautiful boy is gone. I RECEIVED ANOTHER EMERGENCY CALL YESTERDAY - We are on standby for 25? miniature horses, similar to the ones shown above. Their lives are at risk, but unless we raise enough funds we will not be able to answer the call. We spent thousands of dollars to save the last 25, and we are simply tapped out. We have a few days to a week or so? We are on standby for when the miniatures are all rounded up and we can pick them up. But it will not happen if we do not raise funds to cover the rescue. The rescue work we do is very expensive, but Y'ALL ARE DIRECTLY SAVING LIVES! Matt and I are willing to keep doing the work, but as of right now the budget is tapped. We have been getting lots of kids placed, and that also makes a huge difference in the feed bill. We definitely DO NOT hoard horses, and most all of your donations go to saving more lives, as opposed to feeding "stored horses". PLEASE HELP if you can. We will ONLY BE ABLE TO SAVE THE MINI'S if folks open their hearts. We are ALSO STANDING BY ...
