We’re Heading Court Again… And Other News

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign: Thursday, March 15, 2018 Fate of 90,000 Horses to be Decided in Congress Next Week  We have just eight days until Congress must make a decision on spending legislation for the remainder of Fiscal Year 2018. Behind the scenes negotiations are going on RIGHT NOW as Congress decides between the Senate Interior spending bill, which prohibits killing and slaughter of wild horses and burros, and the House version, which would allow the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to destroy up to 90,000 mustangs and burros. It's time to reach out to House and Senate leadership to save the lives of our American mustangs and burros - will you make the calls today? NV Business Leaders Stand With AWHC to Save Virginia Range Mustangs We were honored this week to be joined at a press conference in Reno, Nevada by officials from the Tahoe Reno Industrial Center (TRI), the largest industrial park in the world, in support of our fight to save the Virginia Range horses in northern Nevada. TRI Director and Storey County Commissioner Lance Gilman gave an inspiring talk about the incredible economic development happening at the TRI and how the powerhouse companies there -- including Tesla, Switch, and Blockchains -- are strongly behind protecting the horses. Tomorrow, we'll file our lawsuit to stop the state from giving away the horses to a private owner who would then have the "property rights" to do what it wants with the horses, including selling them for slaughter.  AWHC and TCF Threaten Legal Action Over Upcoming BLM Advisory Board Meeting AWHC and The Cloud Foundation are taking a stand against the BLM's violation of public notice requirements in the scheduling of the next meeting of the National Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Board, currently set for Salt Lake City on March 27, 2018. Yesterday, William Miller of Scottsdale, AZ, attorney for AWHC and TCF, sent a formal letter demanding that the meeting be rescheduled to allow for the required 30-day public notification. Mr. Miller says: "The BLM must give proper notice so that the public can have a voice on this issue that so many citizens care about. This Board has been consistently out of step with the wishes of Americans, 80 percent of whom oppose the killing and slaughter of our wild horses. We will not stand by while this agency ...

Thank you! Here’s what’s next —

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign: Thanks to overwhelming support from activists like you, our Spring Campaign was a great success. We were able to raise over $50,000 that will go toward saving and protecting our nation’s wild horses. With your help, we’re able to continue to battle for wild horses and burros in the courts and in the field. From everyone at AWHC, thank you. But we’re still in the midst of one of our biggest battles. Right now, Congress is finalizing a spending bill that may include provisions for the roundup and slaughter of over 90,000 wild horses across the United States. The deal will be done within the next 10 days. Here's what you can do:
  1. Call the Leadership of the House and Senate. See numbers below. Simply deliver this message: "I'm calling to urge Senator/Representative _____ to keep horse slaughter out of 2018 spending legislation by maintaining the Senate versions of Agriculture and Interior Appropriations bills. Please stand with the 80% of Americans who oppose horse slaughter and want our wild horses protected and humanely managed, not killed or slaughtered."
  1. Contact your representatives now. Tell them that you stand with the 80% of Americans who oppose killing wild horses and burros, and want them protected and humanely managed on our public lands. Take action here.
It’ll be a long fight to make sure the lives of wild horses and burros are no longer in jeopardy. But with your support, we’re making gains toward a successful future. Thank you, Suzanne Donate ...
