The BLM decided that only 337-561 wild horses are allowed to live in this 750-square-mile area. Meanwhile, the BLM allows private ranchers to graze thousands of livestock in the same area. The BLM issued a preliminary Environmental Assessment and refused to give serious consideration to alternatives to the roundup. The Obama Administration is intent on continuing business as usual when it comes to the BLM’s wild horse and burro program.

We must keep up the pressure and let the BLM know that we will continue to fight until this broken program is corrected. Copies of comments submitted below are sent to President Obama to let him know that his Administration is not fulfilling his pledge of change when it comes to the wild horse and burro program. Please submit the form below to oppose this ill-conceived and inhumane plan.
