Many of the wild horses in the video above are going to be stampeded by helicopter beginning in a few short days.
EDIT: 11/13 4 pm. The Fish Creek roundup has been postponed due to fears about covid-19. It is also raining and snowing in the HMA bringing life giving moisture. A reprieve, for now.
Wild horses at Fish Creek suffered deeply this summer, run over by the greed and selfish motives of many; we documented over a dozen that have died from a lack of water after backdoor deals and a policy of sheer callousness to those that truly wanted to help, not just get a subsidy or contract.
As human beings this work is hard and heartbreaking. The images above bring us such deep sadness, even as we marvel at the beauty and joy our wild ones have allowed us to experience. The memory of all that happened fuels the commitment to continue the fight for justice; for a day when kindness is the rule, not the exception.
2020 has been a really rough year.
We are fighting back. From legal actions against mines that draw down precious water tables that have been “fast tracked” and are on the verge of turning valley after valley into wastelands. Protesting sweet deals for livestock operators to expand fencelines that further fracture our wild places. Exposing cruelty during capture and in holding; expanding the base for legal actions. We are pushing back against the sororities and fraternities that place their interests above everything else; cruel and vicious tactics, with a selfish purpose, are destroying so much beauty.
The love and kindnesses from our supporters is a precious and rare thing.
Today we take the opportunity speak our gratitude. We are grateful for the opportunity to fight for the wild ones. We are grateful for you.
Together we unite in love for our wild ones.
Together we fight to create a future where kindness becomes the rule, not the exception.
Each and every one of you is important, valued and appreciated.
Today, World Kindness Day, we wanted to take the opportunity to say “thank you,” to all of you.
What you can do, now, to help our wild ones
Please take action to demand Congress defund any roundups where the BLM has failed to create open and transparent management planning. Click HERE.
Call the Senate switchboard and ask for your rep. Demand that all actions against wild horses and burros halt until William Perry Pendley leaves the BLM. His tenure was ruled illegal and BLM is still moving an agenda forward for Pendley’s former law clients. Switchboard (202) 224-3121
Help us stay in the fight.
