Congress is moving closer to approving a contentious wild horse initiative backed by national animal welfare groups and the livestock industry but condemned by leaders of the largest and oldest coalition of mustang advocates in the West.

NOTE: The Senate Appropriations Committee approved $35 million last week for the program supported by an unprecedented alliance including the:

  • Humane Society of the United States
  • American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals
  • National Cattlemen’s Beef Association
  • American Farm Bureau Federation

  • This plan will wipe our wild horse population.
  • This is a huge waste of taxpayer money. Our federally protected wild mustangs and burros are already on the brink of destruction.
  • Nothing that has been promised concerning the safety of America’s wild horses and burros has kept them from slaughter. BLM employees themselves have been directly involved with selling them to slaughter.
  • There are solutions — humane solutions — that will help protect our wild horses and burros but they have never been seriously considered, and cost nothing like what the Senate Appropriations Committee just approved.
  • Say no to this highly expensive and dangerous plan.
  • Here is the proposal to replace wild horses with beef cattle: The Path Forward for Management of BLM's Wild Horses & Burros

Thank you for everything you do for animals!
