Red Alert: Stop HENRY from being disposed of

PM Fallon 3 Strikes HENRY #9847 August 8 2016

The Bureau of Land Management (BoLM) is flooding the internet with mustangs.

They are pumping America’s wild horses through their internet adoptions so BoLM can strike them out and strip them of their federal protections after only 3 failed adoptions. After 3-Strikes they can become sale eligible, like Henry,. and lose their federal protections due to a loophole created by the Burns Amendment to the 1971 wild horses and burro protection act.

It doesn’t mean they are some sort of rank mustang that nobody wants. The 3-Strikes policy is all about creating a category for disposal.

Captured as a yearling in 2011, Henry has lived most of his life in the shelterless pens with distant memories of his mama and herd in the wild. . .

Poor Henry has 3-Strikes now because he wasn’t picked like all the flashy wild horses who were adopted. He’s plain but he’s sweet and just wants to be loved. Henry is so lonely and so scared. Please help Henry #9847 find a forever home!

URGENT! Help save 3-year-old McCullough the WY #mustang ! RT Plz


UPDATE March 14 at 12 noon: Steve Mantle has confirmed McCullough has a bidder!!! YEA! So grateful that now he will be safe YOU ALL MADE THIS HAPPEN! Thank you for caring and sharing♥

Original post on March 11th:

Please share to find an adopter for McCullough # 0336! He is now a 3-STRIKES Wyoming wild horse and just turned 3-years-old. He is at-risk of going to slaughter!

You might remember McCullough because we shared him on December 5th, after the previous internet adoption but he didn’t find an adopter that would take him home and now he’s at-risk!

Transport & pick up info: Because he’s on the internet adoption he can be picked up at Mantle Ranch, WY; Elm Creek, NE; Pauls Valley, OK; Piney Woods, MS; Mequon, WI. or Archdale, NC (Apr 18) and Springfield, OH (Apr 25).

McCullough wants to be loved! Save him♥

Now his life is in danger because of the 3-Strikes provision. BLM Policy claims they won’t sell to slaughter but the LAW (2004 Burns Amendment) gives them the legal right to “unlimited sales, euthanasia, etc.” Policy-speak out of BLM’s forked tongues is just that. Read about 3-Strikes wild horses who loose all their protections and can be legally sold by the truckload to middlemen who sell our national icons to probable slaughter in Canada or Mexico:

Here is his page on the BLM internet adoption happening now:

This horse is located at the Mantle Ranch in Wyoming right now. The Mantle family contracts with BLM to board and gentle a lot of wild horses. McCullough belongs to BLM until he is safely adopted. The BLM could sell him off if he is not adopted because he is a 3-Strikes wild horse.

Legally BLM can sell wild horses by the truckloads


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has the legal right–under the 2004 Burns Amendment passed by Congress–to dispose of America’s legendary wild horses through “unlimited sales”. People buying truckloads of wild horses generally sell them to slaughter. In August 2011 one such truckload was busted on it’s way to slaughter.

BLM claims it does not sell wild horses to slaughter directly at this time. . . In effect, the middle man buys the truckloads of wild horses and sells them to the slaughterhouse.

It’s time for more eyes on roundups and more eyes on wild horses in holding.

The public wants to re-protect America’s wild horses especially with horse slaughter plants scheduled to reopen in the U.S.A.

Ask Congress to STOP the roundup$ now.
