All of our supporters are incredibly good at contacting legislators. Today we ask you to give your voices to all BLM managed wild horses by calling congress. Congress will begin discussions to finalize Fiscal Year 2019 Appropriations Legislation today. The committee will reconcile differences in the House and Senate versions of these spending bills.
If the House version is passed, it would authorize the BLM to seperate wild horses and burros in non-reproducing and single-sex herds and subject them to risky, invasive surgeries. It could mean the beginning of the end for the iconic, free-roaming mustang herds of the American West.
We implore our own Arizona legislators to not let Congress undermine over 50 years of wild free-roaming horse and burro protection. Please, take action today!
STAMPEDE congress. Call Your Congressmen and Senators at 202-224-3121. Ask for the legislative aid who goes about wild horse issues. Here’s tips on what to say:
“I’m [name] and I’m a constituent. Please ask Rep./ Senator [Name] to contact the Appropriations conference committee to urge them to reject the Stewart Amendment calling for the mass sterilization of wild horses and burros. This would undermine 50 years of protection and is counter to the wishes of the 80 percent of Americans who want our wild horses protected and humanely managed by pzp humane birth control instead. Thank you.”
Then, send a follow up email to your elected officials on Capitol Hill —> wildhor.se/2Offo9w
