The Bureau of Land Management will hold a hearing on the use of motorized vehicles and aircraft — including helicopters — from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. on Feb. 15 at the BLM Montana / Dakotas State Office at 5001 Southgate Drive in Billings, Mont.

In addition to using helicopters to round up and remove wild horses, BLM uses motorized vehicles and aircraft to tasks that include transporting wild horses, making population estimates and applying fertility control.

The agency must hold regular hearings on motorized vehicle use to comply with the Federal Land Policy and Management.

Horse advocates from across the U.S. will be there to put a stop to the insane helicopter roundups that see foals (young horses) drop dead, according to witnesses!
Motorized vehicles viciously round up horses causing severe injuries due to confusion and fear.
Applying fertility control methods are questionable causing injury, infection and death to mares.
The BLM is attempting to round up all of the wild herds across America and turn the land over to cattle owned by ranchers!
We cannot and must not allow this to happen. America's wild horse herds have existed on that land for centuries!

I will be posting petitions in the next few days which i hope you will help me share. Signatures are critical.
Thank you my dear friends.
