Protect Mustangs™ will help find homes for all the 3-Strike wild horses & burros

Dear Secretary Zinke,

We are focusing on proactive solutions to ensure all America’s wild horses and burros will be safe. Right now we are working with many people, organizations and tribes who want the 3-Strikes wild horses and burros. Where have they all gone?

The Bureau of Land Management’s own Wild Horse & Burros Advisory Board’s recommendation to kill all the wild horses and burros in holding is outrageous and cruel.

The public is against killing. My #NoKILL Mustangs petition with more than 221,000 signatures is a reflection of public opinion. (http://www.thepetitionsite.com/907/592/301/demand-nokill-45000-wild-horses-burros-in-holding)

Our Change.org petition with close to 105,000 signatures to stop the roundups and slaughter (https://www.change.org/p/defund-and-stop-the-wild-horse-burro-roundups) speaks for the public as well.

Americans will not allow our national treasures to be killed. It’s time for solutions.

Kindly send me a list, without delay, of all the 3-Striker’s IDs and whereabouts so we can move forward to get the wild mustangs and burros into private care thus reducing the expense to feed and board them through the Bureau of Land Management’s Wild Horse & Burro Program.

Thank you for your assistance.

Sincerely,
Anne Novak

Save wild horses in Oregon from getting more strikes

Please help network these wild horses to a good home. They received a STRIKE against them from the last Internet Adoption because they were passed over. 

PM Mary in Foal #08022753

MARY in foal #08022753

Sex: Mare Age: 7 Years Height (in hands): 14.1

Necktag #: 2753 Date Captured: 10/14/14

Color: Bay Captured: Palomino Buttes (OR)

Notes:
Tag#-2753. This is a 7 year-old bay mare gathered from the Palomino Buttes HMA in OR in October 2014. Freezemark: 08022753

There is a likely possibility that this mare is currently carrying a foal. By the time the internet adoption closes and shipping arrangements are made, this horse will be too far along in her pregnancy to travel healthily via livestock truck hauling. Therefore…this horse MUST BE PICKED UP directly from Oregon’s Wild Horse Corral Facility in Hines, OR.

There were no bids placed on MARY during the last Internet Adoption so she received another STRIKE.

Mary needs someone to care for her and her foal. If she gets 3 STRIKES the BLM can legally sell her to slaughter according to the Burns Amendment. Please contact us if you run into BLM red tape. Our email is Contact@ProtectMustangs.org
