CLICK [HERE] TO SIGN PETITION PLEASE.
Wild horses are a native species to America. Rounding up federally protected wild horses and burros has been documented as cruel. Warehousing them for decades is fiscally irresponsible. Clearing mustangs and burros off public land–for industrialization, fracking, grazing and the water grab–goes against the 1971 Free Roaming Wild Horse and Burro Act put in place to protect the living legends of the American West.
There is no accurate census and the Bureau of Land Management figures do not add up. Please sign petition requesting an independent census because of concerns there are less than 18,000 wild horses and burros in the 10 western states combined. More roundups will wipe them out.
They are not overpopulating despite spin from the forces that want to perform heinous sterilizations in the field. Fertility control can be looked at as an option after a census has been taken but now that’s premature.
Field observers have noticed a worrisome decline in wild horse and burro population since the BLM’s rampant roundups from 2009 to this day.
The Associated Press reports another 3,500 wild horses will be rounded up http://www.idahopress.com/news/state/feds-plan-roundup-for-wild-horses-burros/article_5f02fad7-d0c5-52d4-ae5f-5e1e8c9b0c20.html
Please sign petition asking for allowance of native wild horses and the burros to reverse desertification, reduce the fuel for wildfires and create biodiversity on public land–while living with their families in freedom.

“I write paranormal, American Indian novels that weave time-travel, historical events, and the supernatural into rich and powerful stories.”
The Ghostkiller Trilogy puts a new twist on paranormal fiction that empowers American Indians with the ability to change the world by changing the past.
Forget everything you know about how the west was won!
“I am very proud to be a part of this event which raises awareness to the wild horses threatened by slaughter. We must all come together to stop this insanity and protect these sacred animals.”
Luna represents all that is wrong with the Slaughtering of our Horses. The pro-slaughter camp will have you believe our country is over populated with un-wanted horses and burros and the only remedy is to ship them off to slaughter ~
Nothing could be further from the Truth!
