Wild horses won’t be slaughtered

i Sep 15th by

I was about to write a post about how the US government was planning to slaughter 45,000 wild horses and burros and provide a call to action.

Good news! After public outrage, the plans have been halted.

It’s a great reminder to speak up for animals. From an article about the decision: “The panel’s recommendation created an uproar among animal rights activists and highlighted the challenges ahead for the U.S. government as it seeks to control the population of wild horses and burros.”

Letters, calls, and petitions DO make a difference. I’ll keep an eye on this issue and post action items if the situation changes.
