ACTION

Please contact the following office holders and tell them that wild horses and burros must not be excluded from any protections afforded to wildlife. Tell Nevada legislators to oppose AB 329 that seeks to re-define the word “wildlife,” stripping protections for wild horses and burros, and eliminating any mandate that allows them… water.

INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS

The livestock industry would have you believe that there are “too many” wild horses. The fact is, cattle ranches usurp land and water to support more than twenty times as many cattle as there are wild horses.1 Nevada has employed some despicable techniques to get rid of wild horses and protect the profits of cattle ranching. Wild horses have been fenced out of water sources, rounded up via helicopter, killed, and sterilized. The new plan will allow ranchers to legally “thirst” the horses out. It’s time for this self-serving nonsense to stop.
