ACTION

Take a stand against the BLM's irresponsible capitulation to ranchers, who use our public rangelands for their livestock...thanks to our tax-funded subsidies. The BLM is placing federally protected wild horses and burros, as well as other wildlife species, in danger of starvation, dehydration and suffering in the upcoming summer months.

INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS

Despite extreme drought conditions, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has done little to address the threat of massive livestock grazing on depleted public rangelands. As a result, the agency is placing federally protected wild horses and burros, as well as other wildlife species, in danger of starvation, dehydration and suffering in the upcoming summer months.

One BLM official, Doug Furtado of BLM's Battle Mountain District, has had the temerity to take modest steps to reduce livestock grazing on a particularly degraded range, known as the Argenta Allotment, but the ranchers have come after him with a vengeance. The BLM has once again caved in to the ranchers' bullying tactics and is allowing grazing to resume in this depleted area.

Please take a stand against the BLM's irresponsible capitulation to ranchers, who use our public rangelands thanks to our tax-funded subsidies. Let's demand that the BLM reduce livestock grazing and firmly support those local BLM officials who take responsible steps to protect our public lands and public resources. 


Thank you for everything you do for animals!
