Comments Needed to Oppose Triple B, Maverick Medicine Roundup
BLM TO REMOVE ANOTHER 1,726 MUSTANGS FROM NORTHEASTERN NEVADA
The mustangs need YOU to be their voice.
Please submit your comments by February 7.
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is accepting public comments on a Preliminary Environmental Assessment (EA) on a plan to roundup 1,726 wild horses from the Triple B, Maverick Medicine and Antelope Valley BLM Herd Managment Areas and the Cherry Spring Wild Horse Territory, managed by the U.S. Forest Service. The roundup is scheduled for July 2011, in the heat of the desert summer.
The plan will leave behind as few as 472 wild horses in this vast, 1.7 million-acre public lands complex. Meanwhile, the BLM authorizes nine times that number of privately-owned livestock to graze the same area.
Audubon Magazine recently published an article calling for Audubon members to contact the Interior Secretary in support of slaughter (last paragraph see link below).

I am an Audubon member and think that members who love horses should be encouraged to pull their donations next year in protest.
Also, it might be helpful if wild horse advocacy organizations could share this information with their members and ask them to contact Interior Secretary Ken Salazar to support wild horses: email@example.com or U.S. Department of the Interior, 1849 C Street NW, Washington, DC 20240 and urge senators to support ROAM bill (Restore Our American Mustangs Act).
Our mission is to rescue and rehabilitate animals, particularly horses, that have been injured, abused, neglected, abandoned or orphaned. We carry out this mission by providing good nutrition, medical care and emotional support in a safe and nurturing environment.
It takes a lot of time, work and financial resources to operate any type of rescue. Animals that find their way to your door often need a lot in the way of physical care, emotional support and medical treatment. They also need shelter and room to exercise. Shelters and exercise areas need to be erected and maintained.
Together we can make big difference.
