The evidence is in and the news story is going viral: http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/2015/10/24/investigation-says-buyer-shipped-horses-killed-meat-mexico/74547060/

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has been selling America’s protected wild horses by the truckload to kill buyers like Tom Davis, as revealed in the Inspector General’s report released October 23rd: https://www.doioig.gov/reports/investigative-report-bureau-land-management-wild-horse-buyer

“Hell, some of the finest meat you will ever eat is a fat yearling colt,” said Tom Davis, known kill buyer.

Tom Davis purchased more than 1,700 American wild horses from the BLM for $10 each by the truckload. They were delivered to him at taxpayer expense. These native wild horses had been living in peace on public land in many western states–including California–before they were unfairly rounded up. Davis sold them to slaughter for a profit.

Other kill buyers have sold wild horses to slaughter and the trafficking is going on today–despite BLM’s fluffy PR campaign claiming they have tightened down their screening process for branded mustangs. What about all the unbranded wild horses who are being sold and trucked to slaughterhouses?

The heinous act of selling wild horses to slaughter is against the law and must stop now! Since kill buyers are motivated by profit, the fines need to increase to make buying wild horses and selling them to slaughter a risky and unprofitable business.

It’s time to take action to protect mustangs and stop the trafficking now! Please share this petition with everyone you know.

  1. The selling of America’s mustangs to kill buyers is by far the biggest crime yet that has been done by the BLM. This was a crime against wild horses, the law, and U.S. citizens that pay taxes to protect them. I am 100% in agreement for an increase in fines to $50,000 for each sale per horse sold to slaughter. I am also on board to either dissolve the organization deemed to protect them (Bureau of Land Management); or a complete overhaul of the current administration, its policies, employees, and projects….and a full investigation of all bills of sale in possession of the BLM by an independent organization.

  2. This notorious criminal activity needs to be prosecuted vigorously. Otherwise, the Federal government would be rewarding misconduct and emboldening other scofflaws. Both the kill-buyer whose greed for profits led him to engage in deceptive practices and the BLM employees whose greed for bonuses led them to ignore the red flags should be charged — not by the State of Colorado (to whom BLM tried to pass the buck) but by the appropriate entity — the US Department of Justice.

  3. This country would not have been possible without the Mustangs. horses are a part of the history of America.
    Any country that treats animals like this can not call itself a great civilization
