Fighting for animal liberation and an end to speciesism

ASPCA Urgent Alert


Dear Animal Advocates,

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is the agency within the U.S. Department of the Interior that administers America's public lands,
including the animals who call these lands home. As part of its wild
horse management program, the BLM periodically rounds up large numbers
of wild horses and moves them into long-term holding facilities.

Over the weekend, the BLM began its latest roundup of more than 1,200
federally protected wild horses on public lands in Nevada. The use of
helicopters to run the terrified horses over miles of scorching
desert resulted in serious injuries and several horse deaths, which led
to temporary suspension of the roundup.

This occurred in spite of the fact that the BLM, under intense public criticism,
established an open comment period on its plans for wild horses that is
not over until August
. Instead of waiting to hear what the
American public has to say, BLM officials decided to go forward with
these cruel and brutal roundups in the blistering heat of summer
(several more are scheduled for the coming weeks). This, of course, is
funded by your tax dollars.

What You Can Do
Call the White House Comment Line today at (202) 456-1111. The Obama Administration needs to be told—politely!—that the BLM’s
actions are underhanded and inappropriate, and that the current roundup
and others scheduled this summer must be cancelled immediately.

Please visit the ASPCA Online Advocacy Center at to learn more about this issue and to see some tips on what to say when you call.
