Stop the government from killing wild horses!

We are collecting signatures to forward to U.S. officials in an effort to prevent a massive euthanasia of wild Mustang horses---thousands of horses are at risk! There are other options the government can choose such as transporting the animals to a safe grazing preserve, begin castrating males (to prevent overpopulation) and allocating part of their budget to non-profit organizations that rescue wild horses---there are many willing to help if they are funded. We are also requesting that the government begin a screening process that prevents these animals from being purchased for slaughter. Please go to: www.wildhorsepreservation.org for detailed information about wild horse preservation. Also, please read the article below and sign our petition. ********************************************************* RENO, Nev. - Federal officials are considering euthanizing wild horses to deal with the growing population on the range and in holding facilities, authorities said Monday. Wild horses have overpopulated public lands and the U.S. Bureau of Land Management can\'t afford to care for the number of mustangs that have been rounded up, said Henri Bisson, the agency\'s deputy director. Also, fewer people are adopting the horses, he said. Monday\'s announcement marks the first time the agency publicly has discussed the possibility of putting surplus animals to death. The agency is also considering whether to stop roundups of wild horses to save money, a move that would be criticized by and from sheep and cattle ranchers who see the mustangs as competition for feed on the open range. "Our goal is supposed to be about healthy horses on healthy ranges. But we are at the point we need to have a conversation with people about pragmatically what can we do given the financial constraints of our program to meet the goals we have," Bisson said. There are an estimated 33,000 wild horses on the range in 10 Western states, Bisson told the organization\'s National Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Board. About half of those are in Nevada. The agency has set a target "appropriate management level" of horses at 27,000. Thousands penned in... About another 30,000 horses are in holding facilities, where most are made available for adoption. But those deemed too old or otherwise unadoptable are sent to long-term holding facilities to live out their lives â

I believe with the youth involved things can and will be changed. Need better venue to save this valuable animal. If not for the horse America would not exist.
