An advisory board just voted to euthanize 45,000 wild horses and burros held in government-run facilities throughout the U.S. to make room for beef mega farms. The recommendation made by the National Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Board of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), is already garnering negative attention, and for good reason.
While it’s upsetting enough that this would be the biggest mass horse slaughter in history, the fact that it will be funded by taxpayers—who likely do not support BLM’s actions—makes it even more awful!
It has not yet been decided exactly when the horses will be killed, so there is still time to take action and prevent this tragedy.
If you’d like to make a difference, contact Sally Jewell, Secretary of the Interior, at 202-208-3100. You can then email BLM at email@example.com. Please also add your name to the petition here.
