Save the Wild Horses
Tell your U.S. Senator to save wild horses. Slaughtering healthy animals to control populations should not be an option! Urge your Senators to support the bill to protect America's wild horses and burros.

INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS
Federal land throughout the American West is home to thousands of healthy wild horses. Yet as herds continue to grow, Bureau of Land Management officials have raised the possibility of killing as many as 30,000 of these wild animals.
Recently, the U.S. House overwhelmingly passed the Restoring Our American Mustangs (ROAM) Act -- a bill working to protect wild horses from the possibility of a government-sponsored slaughter.
The ROAM Act would step up fertility control measures, encourage more adoptions and provide as much as 19 million additional acres for the wild animals to roam. Slaughtering healthy animals to control populations should not be an option! Urge your Senators to support the bill to protect America's wild horses and burros.
Thank you for everything you do for animals!
