Demand an Urgent Congressional Investigation and Head Count of all Wild Horses and Burros in Captivity and in Freedom


This petition is going to the US Senate, the US House of Representative and the President of the United States

On September 9, 2016, the Bureau of Land Management’s Wild Horse & Burro Advisory Board voted to kill the alleged 45,000 wild horses in tax-payer funded holding facilities and pastures. Do they want to cover-up the fraud that has been going on for years by killing the evidence?

Taxpayers and the general public want to know:

  • How much fraud has been committed regarding the wild horse and burro count on public land and in corrals?
  • How many budgets were approved using fraudulent information?
  • How many wild horses have gone to slaughter?
  • How many wild horses and burros have been shot and killed?
  • How many unbranded foals did the kill-buyers get to sell overseas?

We request an immediate Congressional investigation and independent head count, with photo IDs, of the alleged 45,000 wild horses and burros rounded up and held in captivity–at taxpayer expense.

In addition, we call for an immediate moratorium on roundups, transport and removals for a precise independent count, with photo ID, of all the federally protected wild horses and burros in the wild. This must occur before any more wild horses or burros are rounded up and/or transported, trapped, chipped, collared, removed, sterilized, given pesticide PZP, GonaCon®, SpayVac®, IUDs, etc., researched or experimented on in any manner to prevent further fraud against taxpayers as well as prevent abuse against wild horses and burros who should be protected from harassment and abuse by law.
We request a complete inventory of the wild horses and burros at the following locations:

  1. Every Herd Management Area
  2. Every Herd Area
  3. Every “Complex”
  4. Every temporary holding facility
  5. Every short-term holding facility
  6. Every long-term holding facility, pasture, eco-sanctuary, etc.
  7. Mustang Heritage Foundation facilities and all equids in their program
  8. TIP Trainers’ facilities
  9. All private contractors’ facilities
  10. Research facilities
  11. Any other locations where wild horses and burros are held in captivity and/or live on public land.

The public, voters of America and taxpayers are outraged and demand immediate action. Thank you.

  1. Fraud, cover UPS, killing our wild horses. Please stop the BLM they have done more than enough damage. These are suppose to be protected mustangs. Keep them protected.

  2. The BLM is a big scam agency lying about the wild horses/Mustangs. The BLM need to be done away with and/or Allow the Advocates to over the care of the wid horses/mustangs.

  3. What kind of people do we have in office who allow the horrific treatment of our wild horses? Who want to kill them, or even remove them, experiment on them? What we have are greedy dishonest people who are in the cattle ranchers’ pockets, cold uncaring people, who we should all vote out of office and replace. Only monsters would want to destroy our wild horses who helped create this country. Sweet and innocent animals who do not harm anyone, who just want to be left alone to live their lives in peace. Karma will get you horrible people who don’t deserve to live in this country.

  4. I cannot believe the fraud and corruption has stooped to this level of un-American inhuman slaughter of one of our country’s natural treasures. What will we have to fear next ?

  5. I support every one of your statements and questions demanding an immediate and full investigation along with a total moratorium at this time This is an outrage and these horses and burros must be systematically removed from these holding pens and returned to the opublic land to be reinstated in the environments that they were removed from based on the laws that are in place for their protection –

  6. I am writing in protest of your plans to kill 45,000 wild horses. Do you have a head count and frankly I don’t really care if you have an accurate count. This is so wrong on so many levels beginning with the meat industry. Government agencies keep authorizing the killing of wildlife for ranchers to run cattle on public lands. The meat industry is making Americans sick, destroying our environment, & aiding in people starving to death in 3rd world countries by our selfish desire to eat meat.

    These horses are our heritage, please leave them be.

  7. Please save the Mustangs n Burros who are left we the American people want to keep the horses …take the cattle and the sheep off the lands designated for these wild equines put the horses back on their land!!!!!!

  8. The Mustangs & burros must not be destroyed. They are a part of the Old West. They can & must be returned to the land they came from. This is a genoside & is the BLM’s easy way out. I as an American citizen demand that they be put back on public land. What happened to the protection plan for them?

  9. We must get this campaign in high gear now! Every legislator needs to see this and each of us taxpayers needs to make damn sure it gets in their hands, and that you have a dialogue with your Rep and Senators about this! The outline is there for you—what our demands are! Excellent work Protect Mustangs!


  11. The BLM should not handle any of these counts because they have proven to be untrustworthy! The BLM needs to be terminated and a new program with more than 9 board advisors who are from all walks of life and professions! The BLM board has a ratio of 8:1 on the vote to kill the 45,000 wild horses!

  12. I demand a full count and full investigation of the BLM wild horse operations and practices. I demand transparency! No more holding facilities closed to the public. Those are our horses! They need to be managed appropriately. They are supposed to be protected! Loopholes in the laws protecting them must be closed. Save our wild horses from being killed! No more cruel roundups!!!

  13. you haven’t done your job so far but maybe you will on this –how many isis members can you fit on these grazing lands- you don’t and government doesn’t have the right to kill these animals–leave them alone–deport muslims and illegal aliens -these lands belong to us not government they are paid for by us not you-cancel the kill

  14. The horrific plan by the BLM is ludicrous. These animals have the right to life as do we all. The BLM needs to be disbanded and a new agency in our government formed. They are corrupt and evil and most of all GREEDY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  15. This is what is being supported by our Government? Is this the CHANGE we were to expect from you? Mass genicide of wild horses? This is how to MANAGE their population?
    It’s a very sad time for our country. Aren’t we the intrusive species? I pray that with every horse that you kill, it’s blood stains your souls for eternity.

  16. Please, please stop this cruelty. These animals have as much right to live as you and I. This is nothing but animal abuse. Please investigate these corrupt people. This is sickening!

  17. The BLM sucks. THEY should be the ones to be rounded up and sent to Iraq or someplace to much out horse stables. What a disgrace.

  18. The BLM sucks. THEY should be the ones to be rounded up and sent to Iraq or someplace to muck out horse stables. What a disgrace.

  19. This idea is insane. People who want to use the horses domain to graze their cattle should use their own property!

  20. I request an immediate Congressional investigation and independent head count, with photo IDs, of the alleged 45,000 wild horses and burros rounded up and held in captivity–at taxpayer expense. YOU MUST RECONSIDER!

  21. All of a sudden, “experts” are sufficient to decide things behind closed doors – as opposed to the argument that is usually foisted upon people regarding prying out the truth through any quasi-legal means necessary when dealing with issues benefiting profits through transparency. Now private expertise is supplanting public diligence for these wards of the state! THESE ANIMALS ARE NOT YOURS TO DECIDE THEIR FATE! Enough legal trickery and double-speak; protect these animals!

  22. BLM has been screwing up for years and have become overtaken by GREED. These horses don’t have to die. It is horrific.

  23. I pray to God that all this cruelty and killing will stop. God will
    Not rest until everyone stop killing innocent animals.I hope you find it in your heart to protect what God gave us to take care, Stop distroying them.

  24. The Bureau of Land Management are criminals and have been breaking Animal cruelty laws and Federal Laws with no questions and backs turned the other way by are elected officials. The BLM are employees of the Federal Government we pay these individuals with are tax dollars.
    The Government snd State Goverments in which states that the Bureau of Land Management are located and they are protected, lies and hide these criminals and the hundreds of crimes against animals they have committed.
    They are not upholding laws that put in place to protect America’s Wild Horses and Burros and animal cruelty, neglect and abuse laws of states that the BLM are in working status.
    The BLM has been rounding up horses since the late 90″s and facilities should be over flowing with horse’s and burros.
    The Bureau of Land Management are failures when it comes to requestedit information of horse and burro transfers which the paperwork is available, can’t be found or lost and other unacceptable excuses.
    They have been caught illegallyselling horse’s to slaughter. And how many has the BLM been selling to slaughter and how long.
    Poor living conditions in facilities pertaining to acquit water, clean drinking water, hay tossed onto filth, no shelters or wind breaks, numerous of deaths of all ages of America’s Wild Horses and Burros and unacceptable injuries and deaths for surgical procedures of Stallions being gelded.
    And most of deaths within facilities there are employees present who may have helped or interventions to prevent injuries and deaths. Hiding answers from inquiriesand the public ofor deaths and injuries.
    Unaccurent number of horses and burros.
    BLM hasn’t done anything new range study reports.
    I could go on and on about the BLM.
    They are killing and being untruthful to members of Congress, The House of Representatives and the American public.
