Please - call your senators and representatives now!!!!

Posting as requested from my Wild Horse "Friends,"...

Help Prevent a Great American Tragedy! Immediate Action is Needed!
THIRTY-THREE THOUSAND American Wild Horses have until Nov. 17th to
live before they will surley end up going to slaughter!!
Call your congressional representatives today!

There is an URGENT NEED right now to get the word out about the
crisis our American Wild Horses are facing. Here is the latest sad
news;

U.S. to Supply European Palate with "A Taste of Texas" Wild Mustang
Steaks & Burgers,.."Fresh off the American Wild West Ranges."

Say it isnt so!

As you may or may not know, our government is getting ready to
senselessly & needlessly exterminate 33,000
wild horses they currently have penned up in holdng facilities
throughout the western states. We are looking to get some IMMEDIATE
MEDIA coverage on this as time is getting short for these horses.
The "Powers That Be (PT plan on following through with their Bush-
Backed "euthansia" plan before Bush leaves office. Remember, the pro-
slaughters and even the American Association of Equine Practicioners
(AAEP) belives slaughter IS "humane euthansia."... so we are
wondering, what is "the real" plan for disposal of these 33,000
horses? Remember, at slaughter-house prices, we are talking about
$165,000 worth of horse-flesh here! Do you REALLY think
the PTB will be ok with "burying" that?
We dont think so!

The time to act is NOW! We must make our voices heard and get this
story out. The only thing that will stop it is a call for
Congressional Hearings IMMEDIATELY!!

I called HBO today and learned that HBO Didnt know - didnt have a
clue as to the crisis the wild horses are in. They know now. We can
only hope they give it their e'MEDIAte attention! Call HBO and ask
them to please cover this story, and soon! Time is running our for
our wild ones!

pick the story up; Can you think of any we missed?
