Dear Friends of Wild Horses,
I didn’t know horses could end up slaughtered and used to flavor ice cream until today. They call it BASASHI ICE and it sells in Japan. YUCK!
In 2010, during field work in Nevada, I learned foals were being live-shipped over to Asia to be slaughtered for “fresh foal sashimi”. The BLM was not keeping good records of wild horses and there was talk that many were being sold out the back door from BLM holding facilities to kill-buyers. This was before the Tom Davis story was exposed. . .
Today the BLM claims they “don’t sell wild horses to slaughter” even though several members of their advisory board want them to. The truth is they still do sell wild horses to middlemen who buy “sale authority” mustangs. Citizens need to unite to bust this wide open.
Thanks to the WY14 incident we now know the BLM rounds up wild horses for the Wyoming Department of Agriculture who sells wild horses at auction to Canadian slaughterhouses. And those American icons are butchered and consumed abroad as a delicacy such as sashimi and ice cream!
As you know the WY14 were rescued after going to the slaughterhouse feedlot, hauled out to California and need ongoing donations for hay to grow strong so they can heal from all the trauma.
The last load of hay from all the money we raised has been eaten up and hay prices are going up in California. It’s expensive to feed the 14 orphans. Our goal to to create a sustainable eco-sanctuary in 2015 with grazing but until then they need your help to eat.
Your TAX-DEDUCTIBLE donation here http://www.gofundme.com/9xcfag makes a difference so they can eat and grow. Please donate today and please share this fundraiser on Facebook, twitter and via email. You can also go to our homepage to make a hay donation: www.ProtectMustangs.org
Feeding them is helping them. . . If they had been left alone with their families to live in freedom they wouldn’t need your help but now that they have lost their freedom and have no more family members over the age of 2–because they were all slaughtered–they really need your help.
The WY14 are grateful you care. Thank you.
