INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS
The U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) continues to mismanage the care of wild horses and burros. The agency’s current policies authorize inhumane methods of gathering and confinement that may result in the eradication of these animals. U.S. Representative Dan Burton of Indiana has recently succeeded in passing an amendment to the Interior Appropriations Bill to cut $2 million from the BLM’s annual budget in order to pressure the agency to stop its ill-conceived efforts.
This amendment was adopted by the U.S. House of Representatives and will soon be considered in the Senate. Please let your two U.S. senators know that they should support the Burton amendment to cut $2 million dollars from the BLM program. It saves both money and wild horses.
ALWAYS REMEMBER: The horses are being rounded up for the benefit of cattle ranchers and oil drilling and pipelines NOT to help the horses.
Thank you for everything you do for animals!
