Tell Nevada: Wild Horses ARE Wildlife...Let Them Have Water!
[Ed. Note: VICTORY May 2011: Anti-Mustang Bill is NOT Passed.]
[Ed. Note: Watch Mustang Conspiracy an interview with KLAS TV's George Knapp about a very dark and very real travesty that is being played out against our wild mustangs by a cast of bad actors from the U.S. Government. All of your questions about "why round up wild horses" will be answered. For more information, read Animal Advocates Worry Bill Would Decimate Wild Horse Herds.]
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.
Nevada’s Governor Sandoval
Members of the Nevada senate:
AB 329 has been referred to Committee on Natural Resources.
Members of that committee are: Senator Mark Manendo Email <mailto:email@example.com>

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.
Thank you for everything you do for animals!
