Protect mustangs & Stop the cruelty!
Make signs, bring friends and join the rally on Friday, January 4, 2012 (11 a.m. to 1 p.m.) in front of the Legislative Building (Hwy 395 East) in downtown Carson City, Nevada.
If you can’t come to Nevada then hold a peaceful protest in your hometown and send us your photos. We will post them here. Even one person can have a protest. Well traveled roads with lots of traffic are great spots for small protests.
Are you aware the federal officials discussed a plan to kill most of the native wild horses left in America? Read: Outrage over secret documents planning to kill or slaughter 50,000 native wild horses!

From Bonnie Matton:
Well, as you all know by now, we are battling the Nevada Department of Agriculture to get them to stop sending our Virginia Range Horses + horses from other areas as well – to auction: MEANING TO SLAUGHTER.
So, we are having an emergency rally on Friday, January 4, 2012 (11 a.m. to 1 p.m.) in front of the Legislative Building (Hwy 395 East) in downtown Carson City. Sorry for the last minute notice. We have to have it before the next auction which is on January 9, 2013. NO TIME TO LOSE.
We are calling it “Slaughter is not the Answer.” We will have flyers to pass out to press and others. Would appreciate your emailing me of how many people will be coming from your area and where you are coming from.
Many of you have participated in demonstrations before. Please come at least 1/2 hour before the rally begins (in the park area next to the Legislative Building) so you can receive instructions (especially if you’ve never attended a demonstration before). There are certain regulations we must abide with. The Legislative police have always welcomed us wild horse advocates because we are polite and follow their directions.
After the rally, we will be marching to the Governor’s Building (which is next door to the Legislative Building and close to where we gathered before the rally). Shannon Windle, President of Hidden Valley Wild Horse Protection Fund, will then bring hundreds of letters directly up to the Governor’s office – letters she has been gathering for some time opposing what NDA is doing with Nevada’s Treasures.
You are welcome to make up signs and bring them with you. We have lots in our storage shed which will work and I’ll bring them as well. You are also welcome to bring your organizational signs.
The easiest place to park is if you drive down Stewart Street. There’s usually plenty of parking directly behind the Legislative Building, which is convenient for carrying signs and tables to our setup area.
