Hold BLM Accountable For Illegally Selling Wild Horses for Slaughter!
Action Alert from All-Creatures.org

FROM

American Wild Horse Preservation
October 2015

[NOTE from All-Creatures.org: If you eat beef, you may be indirectly responsible for wild hores roundups!]

ACTION

They always say it doesn't happen, but we know it does, and now the Interior Department Office of Inspector General (OIG) has confirmed it -- nearly 2,000 federally protected wild horses were illegally sold by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and then brutally slaughtered in Mexico.

We must demand that the President and Congress hold the BLM accountable for this travesty. And, we must stop this from ever happening again by permanently outlawing the sale of America's mustangs for slaughter!

Above are the faces of some of our cherished mustangs, heartlessly rounded up from their homes on our western public lands, thrown into holding pens, and then sold by the truckload to a known kill buyer, Tom Davis. Even Davis admits BLM employees who sold him more than 50 truckloads of wild horses "had to know the horses would end up at the slaughterhouse."

Yet no one -- not the BLM employee who sold the horses despite receiving reports that they were being sold to slaughter, not her boss or her boss's boss -- is being held accountable. And Tom Davis is not being prosecuted.


Thank you for everything you do for animals!
