Dear Sir,

Pictures have just been released which were photographed within the wild horse region known as the foothills of Sundre.
They show a road that has been freshly ploughed to a well-known wild horse capture site and there was a truck and large horse trailer present in the remote area.
http://globalnews.ca/news/1098201/capture-of-albertas-feral-horses-to-go-ahead/
This is alarming, as the ESRD has stated until today "No decision regarding the 2013/2014 cull and issuing of wild horse trapping licenses has been made".
Later last evening news broke that that ESRD has been in contact with the capture permit holders (the horse trappers), regarding the trapping season that WILL be held this year.
ESRD has also agreed to plough out access to areas where the trappers will be setting up their capture pens.
This apparently took place last week while at the same time the ESRD, a department of the Alberta provincial government, was still publicly stating that a decision had yet to be made.
This blatant scheme to hide their intentions to cull the wild horses again cannot be allowed to continue.
In Canada people have the right to information and the right to due process.
All of which have been ignored by the ESRD.
A public inquiry should be demanded regarding this lack of transparency.
Today, the ESRD came clean to media after wild horse advocates flooded their phone lines demanding answers.
Up to 200 wild horses will be trapped this season, starting immediately and running through March.

I urge you to halt the cull!!

Sincerely:
