Take Action Against Nevada's Proposal to 'Remove' Wild Horses from Current Protected Areas
From the
American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign

The U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is proposing to remove 150 wild horses from the Jakes Wash & Moriah Herd Management Areas (HMAs) in Nevada, leaving only 30-40 horses on 208,000 acres (which is less than 1 horse per 5,000 acres!). BLM will only leave very old horses on the range, as they are likely planning to "zero out" these HMAs completely as part of the new 2007 Land Use Plan.

While BLM claims the HMAs wild horse population is excessive, livestock in that same area have been allocated 3,300% more forage than wild horses, despite the fact that the range is legally designated for horses.

This latest effort to reduce competition with livestock is just another egregious example of BLM's bias in favor of subsidized private ranchers on public lands, and will cost an estimated $317,000 of our tax-dollars.

Please protest this gross waste of tax-dollars and mismanagement of our natural resources.

Send your comments to BLM by Tuesday, July 17, 4:00 p.m. PST:

Urge the government to take "No Action" on the scheduled round-ups.

"EA # NV-040-07-002 - Jakes Wash & Moriah Herd Management Area Capture Plan", and to include your name and address.

On behalf of the horses, thank you for your support,
