Here we go again. It’s only three days into the controversial Silver King roundup, south of Ely, Nevada, and the BLM has already killed four perfectly healthy wild horses out of the 177 they’ve taken into custody.
Why were these horses “euthanized” (i.e., “shot”)? According to the BLM’s report from the roundup: “Three of the horses were blind in one eye from previous injuries. The fourth horse suffered with a severe sway back.”
The only chance of stopping or curtailing the BLM’s slash and burn campaign against our wild horses lies with the motion for a Temporary Restraining Order, filed by Laura Leigh of Grass Roots Horse, seeking an immediate halt to all roundups. Their efforts deserve your support.
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.
