Not only is BLM pushing Congress for permission to slaughter America’s mustangs, it's blatantly violating the law rounding them up right now in Wyoming
We’re not backing down. Even as we push the U.S. Senate to stop slaughter, we’re fighting the feds' illegal actions to destroy mustangs. Last week, we won two critical lawsuits to stop the Forest Service from shrinking wild horse habitat in California and the BLM from destroying an Idaho mustang herd by sterilizing every horse in it.
And, last Friday, we filed suit in U.S. District Court Wyoming to stop the BLM from illegally rounding up hundreds more wild horses than authorized by pretending young horses born this year don't count.
We're not going to let them get away with it, but we need your help.
We’re winning, but these lawsuits are expensive. They’re draining our funds and our staff resources.
As the BLM prepares for a possible pro-slaughter policy, the roundups are increasing and intensifying. Alarmingly, the agency is sending captured mustangs to private feedlots in Idaho and Utah where they may never be seen again. Our latest lawsuit challenges that too.
Our nation's beautiful, majestic wild horses and burros deserve our protection, not helicopters rounding them up, shipping them out of public view to private holding pens, and putting every one of these innocent animals at risk of being brutally killed or slaughtered.
