Do you remember? Do you remember what 10,000 wild horses coming off the range in one year looks like? The video above has been viewed nearly 4 million times. The wild horses in these areas are targeted again, this time in a roundup 3 times the size of the winter roundup that lasted nearly two months.
What is coming will be a relentless assault. IF BLM moves forward with all of the actions they have proposed, now and those that they could not complete in the last two years, we could see from 12,000-30,000 wild horses rounded up in the next fiscal year, that begins in October.
To accomplish this goal the BLM budget proposes to kill tens of thousands of wild horses in holding facilities, create so called “partnerships” primarily with the ranching community that can then run more domestic livestock and take in money from their new “non profit.” In addition management decision making power will become more lop-sided, with more voice going to the states under the “sage-grouse” ruse.
This attack has been planned for years, make no mistake. Many have aided this agenda knowingly or unknowingly. But it’s here.
You must call your Senators today and say simply “killing wild horses to keep running a broken system is not ok.” It’s that simple. Information on how to find your representatives, and some “need to know” facts, can be found here: https://wildhorseeducation.org/2017/08/02/deadly-traps-dont-get-caught-2/
The only way to get off the wheel of corruption is to break it. Be careful what you share and research facts. We can also support the few brave people in Congress that stand up. Raul Grijalva (D-AZ) has requested a probe into intimidation tactics used in the politics of public land (the treasures) and the rest of the swamp.

This is what is coming and at the end of the road is a bullet.
Wild Horse Education is the only organization to ever litigate against inhumane treatment. We won multiple court rulings on first amendment, against inhumane treatment and against unjustified removals. You can see a brief partial “resume” by clicking the link in the menu bar.
There is a matching funds offer that was extended through the weekend, midnight August 6, because multiple orgs were sending mailers and we never had the time. Our donor has extended the match. Help us fight back if you can.
