THE BLM PLANS TO FURTHER DECIMATE OUR WILD HORSE HERDS DECEMBER FIRST!  PLEASE CONTACT YOUR REPS ION WASHINGTON TO URGE A MORATORIUM ON WILD HORSE GATHERS PENDING CONGRESSIONAL INVESTIGATION OF THE BLM. HORSES ARE KILLED AND MAIMED. THEIR HERD SIZES ARE BEING REDUCED TO GENETICALLY NON-VIABLE NUMBERS. THE BLM ALREADY HAS MORE ONCE-WILD HORSES IMPRISONED (30 THOUSAND) THAN STILL EXIST IN THE WILD. 20 MILLION ACRES HAVE BEEN STOLEN FROM THEM. THE BLM CONTINUES TO VIOLATE THE 1971 WILD HORSE AND BURRO PROTECTION ACT.  THEY ALLOW 100 "WELFARE RANCHER" CATTLE PER ONE WILD HORSE ON OUR PUBLIC LAND!  ONLY 3% OF AMERICA'S BEEF COMES FROM THIS GOVERNMENT SUBSIDIZED PROGRAM. DNA STUDIES HAVE DETERMINED THAT THE MODERN HORSE EVOLVED HERE, SO HE IS A NATIVE SPECIES. HE BELONGS HERE. PLEASE CALL (202) 225-3121 Your Reps in Washington or email them. An easy way to contact your Reps is to join congress.org. Otherwise, just google their name and you can email them from their websites. Go to my page and get more info and access to my petition. Please sign it. However, petitions aren't enough. We must contact our Reps. Please help us. I have three animals with permanent damage from BLM abuse. They should be living a free and healthy life in the wild, instead, they must live at my little sanctuary with physical and emotional scars. PLEASE HELP. CATHERINE RITLAW, jeranimalsanctuary.org.

Protest 02/18/2010

We are asking for a minimum of 100 people to hold these big banners, 2 persons to a banner. Banner holders or their friends/family can also wear a fabric sign we will provide that reads: OBAMA: Order The BLM To Abolish Mustang Atrocities. This front piece leaves your hands free for the banner or to pass out information sheets to the public. We ask all protestors to dress in black to symbolically mourn the 39 horses that the BLM admits have already died in the Calico Roundup. Transparency is not their strong suit.



At 2 PM, Protest Speakers will make short but powerful speeches addressed to the President, beginning with the eyewitness account of the Calico Roundup by humane observer, Craig Downer. Speakers will also include Dr. Elliot M. Katz DVM and President of In Defense of Animals, Neda DeMayo, founder & CEO of Return To Freedom, an American Wild Horse Sanctuary in Lompoc CA, Gina Greisen, President of Nevada Voters for Animal s; and Arlene Gawne, wildlife artist and concerned citizen.



At 2:30 PM, the banners will be rolled up and each pair of banner holders will have one hour to drive to their assigned location across Las Vegas. Bring along any assistants, friends, family – especially your kids. Bring your folding chair and favorite snacks – have fun!



At 3:30 PM at your assigned location, you will hold your banner for 1-1/2 to 2 hours so thousands can see our message across Las Vegas: home-going traffic on major streets, convention attendees, shoppers all across the city, tourists at major casinos, travelers entering and leaving McCarran and Nellis airports, university and college students at campus entry points, all Congress members’ offices (Reid, Ensign, Berkley, Titus and Heller), tourists at Red Rock Canyon and more. In particular, there will be a special banner at the BLM office near I-95 and Craig Road where there w ill be a meeting on Feb.18 concerning renewable energy – and some fear BLM plans to remove wild horses to make it easier to build such facilities. We say NO to that Mr. President. We can have renewable energy and wild horses & burros on the same public land.



There will also be a special banner at the Welcome to Las Vegas sign on Las Vegas Blvd. This banner will let Nevada know that the BLM is stealing our wild horse & burro legacy.
