As the first American woman to fly in combat, U.S. Rep. Martha McSally, a retired U.S. Air Force Colonel, is a military hero. And now she's a hero for wild horses as well!
Last week, Rep. McSally asked the House Interior Appropriations Committee to incorporate language to prevent the BLM from turning over captured wild horses to other federal, state and local agencies as a potential back door route to slaughter.
As you know, the BLM has asked Congress to give the agency permission to strip wild horses of their protected legal status before turning them over to other government agencies, creating an end run around the current Congressional ban on selling wild horses for slaughter.
If you are in Arizona Congressional District #2 (Tucson area), the Rep. McSally is your Congressperson, and you can send her an email after you call by clicking here.
When our elected officials take a stand for wild horses, it's important to let them know that we appreciate it, so please give Rep. McSally a call today.
