Helicopter roundups will increase to administer PZP
95% of the herds can’t be shot with darts in the field
Does the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) want to take over the Wild Horse and Burro Program, pushing forced drugging with PZP (pesticide made from slaughterhouse pig ovaries http://www.epa.gov/pesticides/chem_search/reg_actions/pending/fs_PC-176603_01-Jan-12.pdf) for management on underpopulated herds? PZP is a “tool” to manage wild horses to extinction. Science proves PZP (native, 22, etc.) sterilizes after multiple use.
Isn’t the American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign (AWHPC) the wild horse mouthpiece for HSUS? Doesn’t their pledge to “keep them in the wild” written up in the Huffington Post include forced drugging with PZP as their cornerstone management tool? Does HSUS want to create zoo-like settings to “keep them in the wild”? HSUS endorsed the former Secretary of Interior’s Plan, aka the Salazar Plan, in 2009. Now the plan is entering the final wipe-out phase with the help of PZP pushers.
For decades native wild horses have been used by the pharmaceutical industry as lab rats for birth control “research” at huge taxpayer expense. This involves killing wild horses to research drug damage on ovaries and other organs. PZP = Roundups = Cruel Animal Experiments

Reading this article once again enforces my decision to no longer be a member of HSUS & withdraw any and all donations. They do not help animals and I hope the rest of the U. S. will finally cme to that realization. Especially now, The HSUS wants to forcibly sterilize our wild horses & burros! This is an unacceptable practice and must be stopped. The wild horses & burros can manage their own hers without any help from so called animal advocates like the HSUS.
It is such a shame that so many indeed it seems nearly all the herds remaining in the West are being planned for PZP. This will assure their deterioration as individuals and social units and their decline. Most all of these have prescribed AML’s (Appropriate Management Levels) that re non-viable, genetically speaking. This is so wrong. Hope some of you got your input in to protest this ourtage in Wyoming for the 5 herds of the Red Desert wild horse Complex. Comments due in today 3/20/15
This madness needs to stop!
The act of using Wild Horses to experiment with drugs of any kind is abusive and against Federal Law! PZP is one of those drugs. The HSUS in carrying the patent for this drug must bear the responsibility of the induced side effects that will assuredly become evident as time passes. The responsibility will also be on the consciouses of the BLM, Mr. Kirkpatrick, and a host of others that continue to hoodwink hundreds of advocates, sanctuaries, and United States citizens general public of PZP’s use on Wild Horses.
Wayne Pacelle WTH do you think you are doing?
First you help sick vick get another dog, another pit bull none the less. Having any animal is not a right it is a privilege. Sick vick lost that privilege when he beat, shot and hanged those poor dogs. NOW I am finding out your dirty dealings with the BLM. Richard Berman is as anybody in the world of animal rights knows is the enemy and the spin doctor (lobbyist) for trying to make all the animal rights groups look bad. What you are doing with the horses only helps his cause because YOU ARE MAKING YOURSELF look bad. How dare you use vivisection on our horses. I guess in my mind that now makes you the enemy.
I’m not understanding why the push for PZP? We have too few on the range. The BLM needs to up the ALM’s.
