End Cruel and Deadly Wild Horse Roundups
In October 2009, the Department of the Interior (DOI) released a comprehensive five-year plan to potentially transform the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) wild horse and burro program. Sadly, that optimism was short-lived. Just weeks after the plan was released, the BLM announced that it would remove another 12,000 wild horses from the range in FY 2010. At this rate, by 2011 there will be more wild horses in captivity than there are in the wild.
Worst yet, the BLM has made no effort to change its roundup procedures to minimize injuries and deaths. At least 46 horses have died or been killed in incidents related to the roundups taking place at the Calico Complex in Nevada, including two colts who were run for so many miles that their hooves subsequently became infected and fell off.
Take Action:
Please contact Ken Salazar the Secretary of the Interior, urging him to place an immediate moratorium on wild horse roundups in the U.S.

About rachel

Hi, I'm Rachel and I've been active with NARN as long as I've been vegan 13 years! I made the choice to be vegan after learning about what happens to egg laying chickens and dairy cows. I had previously been vegetarian for 7 years because I finally made the connection that beef came from cows and pork came from pigs (duh, I know). I didn't want my food choices to cause the death of an animal. It just seems like common sense to not eat animals if you care at all about animals, the earth or your fellow human beings. I became active with NARN because after I found out about the atrocities happening to animals, I felt that I had to do what I could to help stop these injustices. NARN is local, puts the animals first, and networks with other groups. We aren't worried about getting credit - just helping the animals. One of my favorite quotes is: "I think the purpose of life is to be useful, to be responsible, to be compassionate. It is, above all to matter, to count, to stand for something, to have made some difference that you lived at all." ~ Leo Rosten and "Progress in every age results only from the fact that there are some men and women who refuse to believe that what they know to be right cannot be done." --Russell W. Davenport
