Despite overpopulation myths and fear tactics that wild horses must be sterilized and given restricted use pesticides in the form of birth control, slaughtering wild horses is against the law and must be upheld. Please donate to our legal fund to fight to keep America’s mustangs safe from slaughter.
We are working hard to keep wild horses out of the clutches of Kill Buyers. Our lawsuit was very effective. http://protectmustangs.org/?page_id=5144 Our settlement stopped 2 more years of Ft. McDermitt wild horses from being rounded up and sold to slaughter under their agreement. They will try to round up the wild horses with a new agreement and we need to be ready. Please help donate to our legal fund. Write “legal fund” on your donation. It takes a village to save wild horses!

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A New Mexico horse slaughter plant plans to open Jan. 1 after a federal appeals court rolled back a court order that had kept the Roswell facility from beginning operations.
According to KOB-TV (http://bit.ly/1eqMdg1 ), Valley Meat Co. owner Rick De Los Santos says the plant will start off slow, but already has multiple meat contracts lined up.
The 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Dec. 13 lifted an emergency order that blocked the opening of the Roswell plant, another in Gallatin, Mo., and one in Sigourney, Iowa, that has converted to beef.
Animal protection groups have been trying to block the slaughtering of horses.
De Los Santos says Valley Meat has employees ready to work and 20 horses from Nevada for slaughter.
Note in this newscast (http://bit.ly/1eqMdg1) Rick De Los Santos says he has a huge contract with China for horse meat. The Asian market is only going to skyrocket so we must fight for our wild horses to stay off their dinner plates. Please donate what you can. Thank you very much!
