Tell Secretary Jewell: Stop the Horse Slaughter - Environmental Action

Animals  (tags: Horses, protection, government, environment, destruction, culture, slaughter, killing )

- 875 days ago -
Thanks to an archaic formula set up to benefit the ranching, mining and drilling industries, BLM claims that each wild horse needs as much land as an 800 acre strip mine or cattle ranch. It's wildly untrue, but BLM uses this flimsy excuse to claim it does

The horses need more acres in the west that say the mid-west to live. The forage is not of the same quality. I don't know the number. It depends on the size of the her which is getting smaller. In addition many Burros run among them. They are not as fast so many don't make it.
I harbor no ill will to ranchers per SE. I have a problem with ranchers that lease government land and then destroy the reason for it so they may profit. It seems to me every endangered species is being "managed" out of existence for profit.

We need to turn up the volume on this campaign if we want to get Sally Jewell's attention. Chip in here and we'll advertise the action to thousands of animal lovers nationwide. When thousands of us speak out, Sec. Jewell will be forced to listen!

I wish I could sign, but I'm South African. Noted, and I really hope that something can be done. Could someone `extend the petition to those outside of the US? Power in numbers

The BLM will NOT be satisfied until it has KILLED every last wild horse and burro. The lands will then be handed over to their fat-assed friends, the cattle ranchers. The horses and burros rounded up are very, very quietly sent to auctions where they are sold to the BLM's equally fat-assed friends, the kill-buyers and we all know what they do with them. They, not so very quietly, ship the horses and burros off to either Mexico or Canada where they are horrifically slaughtered and the meat sold for human consumption to Europe or Japan. (Japan also EATS most of the USA's unwanted racehorses)
