America's Wild Horses Betrayed!

Return to Freedom and 90 thousand wild horses need your help! Return to Freedom Rips Advisory Board for Urging BLM to Kill Thousands of Wild Horses On Thursday, the National Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Board recklessly voted to approve recommendations that call on the Bureau of Land Management to shoot tens of thousands of healthy wild horses and burros. At its meeting in Grand Junction, Colo., the advisory board recommended that BLM achieve its on-range population goal of 26,715 wild horses and burros while also phasing out the use of long-term holding facilities – both within three years. If Congress allowed BLM to follow through on the independent board’s recommendations, that would mean the government shooting at least 90,000 healthy animals. The advisory board has no power to control policy. The board also called for allowing international adoptions and sales, which have not been allowed before. During its deliberations, the board repeatedly referenced a proposal made by a private party to have American taxpayers pay to ship upwards of 20,000 wild horses to Russia -- where they would serve as prey animals for big cats. “Killing tens of thousands of wild horses and burros would be a betrayal of millions of taxpayers who want wild horses protected as intended in the 1971 Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act and who have invested tens of millions of dollars in their care,” said Neda DeMayo, president of Return to Freedom Wild Horse Conservation.

I send a little money sometimes as I can afford just so much...and I believe I am a part of helping the wild animals. I just hate people who hurt them. Jandi rose
