Anne Novak, Executive Director of Protect Mustangs, has been on the phone with BLM National’s Senior Wild Horse and Burro Specialist Zachary Reichold who is in Winnemucca now and has let the Winnemucca Director, Gene Seidlitz know that we believe it is too risky to drive heavily pregnant mares with a helicopter. We are asking the BLM to not conduct the roundup and to truck out water and forage as needed to help the mustangs. Anne also talked with Ginger, from The Cloud Foundation, who has also been in phone meetings with BLM’s Winnemucca Director yesterday and today voicing their position against the cruel Jackson Mountain roundup.
People from various groups will be going to the roundup If BLM goes ahead with the roundup that will put pregnant mares at risk of aborting their foals and dying.
We need your help. If you want to go to the roundup to help be a witness and be the eyes and ears for the American public and your community, contact us (Contact@ProtectMustangs.org) to get information. We need as many people there as possible.
