This action is for those living in the U.S. .. sorry to say because I feel that everyone on the planet has a right to sign this petition!

This is the letter that goes with the petition that you will be signing and of course you can add your own views.

" I am writing to urge the Bureau of Land Management to drop its planned removal of wild horses from the Onaqui Mountain Herd Management Area. For the good of the future of this much-loved herd, the BLM should instead work with willing advocacy organizations to dramatically increase field darting of mares with safe, proven and humane fertility control vaccine.

The BLM-set "Appropriate Management Level" (AML) for the 205,394-acre Onaqui Mountain HMA of 121-210 wild horses is very low -- as low as one horse for every 1,697 acres.

Moreover, while BLM says that the condition of the range is compromised, it continues to allow 19,235 Animal Unit Months of private livestock to graze on allotments overlapping the HMA. That's the equivalent of 1,603 cow / calf pairs or 8,015 sheep. "

It is critical to sign this petition even though the BLM is saying the round up has been postponed to 2019.
I am going to post the other news item and will cross post it with this one, after considering posting it here, I wanted to avoid confusion, if any.
The BLM is being pressured by advocacy groups so all we can do is hope and pray that the round up will be cancelled permanently. However, having said this, the BLM is still conducting round ups of America's wild horse herds across the country :(
