“Send a handwritten letter to your senators and representatives demanding they stop funding roundups and all kinds of mustang and burro removals”, suggests Anne Novak, Executive Director of Protect Mustangs. “Ask them for an independent scientific head count before giving wild horses any more sketchy contraceptives. We don’t know how many mustangs are out there but we know the Bureau of Land Management’s numbers are inflated to justify receiving funding from Congress for their broken program. $78 million American tax dollars are given to BLM annually so they can rip wild horses from their families and their freedom. That’s $780,000,000. in just ten years to remove wild horses from public land set aside for them with the 1971 Free Roaming Wild Horse and Burro Protection Act. Write your politicians who are in office to represent you and ask for the change you want.”

  1. Ideally doing a census is what we need to do. ASAP. This is an emergency. Every HMA needs to be visited and looked over and all horses counted. All mining companies on the HMAs need to be noted. This would be the best show of solidarity and strength and a presence in the field that we could do right. Then we need to write new legislation and possible through that take the wild ones away from BLM!!!! It is all worth a try. Dependence upon lawsuits is not enough!! We need to make up for lost time.
