America’s Wild Horses and Burros urgently need your help today to save them from Sterilization and Eradication
by Carol Walker
The U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Appropriations just announced that a Joint House and Senate Conference Committee meeting will take place tomorrow, September 13th, to begin discussions on finalizing Fiscal Year 2019 Appropriations legislation (H.R. 6157) – including funding for the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM’s) Wild Horse and Burro Program.
The Appropriations Committees must meet in Conference so that the bills in each match. While the Senate voted to protect our wild horses and burros, the House of Representatives included the dangerous Stewart Amendment. The two committees will conference tomorow September 13th and decide whether or not to include language in the Stewart Amendment which will authorize the BLM to manage wild horses and burros in same sex and non-reproducing herds, and to use dangerous and cruel sterilization methods.
If passed with this language, it could soon mean the end of wild horses roaming free on our public lands, and also the end of over 50 years of protection.
We need your help! Yes you can make a difference – here is exactly what to do. Call today.
Please take these steps, thank you to AWHC for putting this together:

The Steward Amemdment for sterilization would make a complete mockery of the Wild Free-Roaming Horses And Burros Act and would be the last stage of the destruction of the wild horses and burros — a cruel and heinous act that would carry with it dreadful consequences. Employ the intelligent, knowledge- based and caring Reserve Design formula, instead and cut back on the arrogant and destructive monopolies of the public lands . Horses are healers when allowed to fulfill their age-old role in the natural world. See my book The Wild Horse Conspiracy and website of same name.
I have emailed and called Senators and Representatives. Spoke to only one person, left messages with others. They are getting overwhelmed with calls about the matter.

Thank you for posting the information with your article. I personalized the letter and requested they check out your site for information concerning the matter. I stated your site presents the facts.
Thank you so much Rebecca for calling, and that is terrific news that they are getting so many calls about our wild horses!
I have e-mailed my senators in Oregon, and I’ve also contacted the Legislative Director for my Representative, Peter DeFazio, with whom I have been in touch regarding the horrific spay study in the Warm Springs HMA! I hope this personalized contact will help to gain DeFazio’s support to (a) STOP the ovariectomy study and (b) cut the Stewart Amendment out of the reconciled appropriations bill. Fingers crossed!
No a la crueldad hacía los animales
