Mustang Monday™: Call your senators and representatives – request they Stop the Roundup$

Mustang Monday™: Contact Congress 10/1/12

Email, fax or call your senators and representatives to let them know that you want the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to stop selling our wild horses to alleged kill-buyers. Ask Congress to stop the fall roundups and freeze all others until the slaughter driven corruption is flushed out of the BLM.

Be sure to let YOUR elected officials know how you feel. You may choose to share these articles (below) with them.:

“They aren’t placing enough wild horses through adoption so they need to put a freeze on roundups,” said Anne Novak, executive director of Berkeley, Calif.-based group Protect Mustangs. “Killing them is not a solution. Selling them to slaughter is not a solution. They need to be responsible for their actions and stop the gluttony of roundups at taxpayer expense.”

“They are selling me mere hundreds now,” he said. “If they sold me 50,000, I guarantee I could do something with them. I would go to Canada. I would go to Mexico.”


Mustang Monday™: Ask your representative to defund slaughter today

Please CALL the Capitol switchboard at (202) 224-3121; ask to be connected to your state Representative’s office. Ask them to NOT fund horse slaughter. Calls must be made today!
The House of Representatives will vote on the AG Appropriations bill tomorrow, Tuesday, June 26. A new amendment could be offered to remove the Committee-approved language that was just added back in last week prohibiting the USDA from spending tax dollars to inspect horse slaughter facilities.
America’s horses can be protected if the House keeps the defunding language currently included that prohibits inspections of horse slaughter. It’s up to us to make our voices heard today.Pro-slaughter supporters are putting the pressure on, but you can urge your Representatives to stand strong and oppose any effort to remove this funding ban.
You can also find the direct contact information for your state representative here>> http://www.house.gov/representatives/find/
Thank you for taking action to help all of America’s horses including our iconic wild horses.

Take action today~

Members of the public are encouraged to fax the BLM head office in Washington DC and request the Nevada helicopter hearing be rescheduled with a 30 day notice given to the public for oral comments. The fax number is: 202-208-5242. They may also email their request to Deputy Director Mike Pool at Mike_Pool@blm.gov .

Meanwhile, the group asks the public to send in their comments about using helicopters and other motorized vehicles in Nevada at roundups and for other wild horse and burro management. They welcome the public to send a copy of their comments to Contact@ProtectMustangs.org so Protect Mustangs can watchdog the process.


Thank you for doing what you can to help save wild horses and burros.


Mustang Monday™: Contact Congress


Helicopter Chasing Wild Horses-Calico (Photo © Cat Kindsfather)

In all time zones, email, fax or call your senators and representatives to let them know that “Old Gold”, an American wild horse was rounded up near Gerlach, Nevada on November 19th and euthanized later by the BLM because of being old. At the trap site she was traumatized, slammed into a metal panel and was surely injured. Explain that BLM is not counting her death as a roundup-related death. Tell them Old Gold is an example BLM’s poor accountability and using tax dollars for animal cruelty. Remind them that Congress gives BLM  $75 million annually for this broken program. Ask Congress to stop the Calico roundup and freeze all others until an independent, accurate headcount is made and a sustainable manage plan proves that more wild horses and burros need to be removed to have thriving natural ecological balance (TNEB).

“The roundups in the Ruby Pipeline zone are questionable,” states Katie Fite, biologist and biodiversity specialist. “The public is not being told the truth. There needs to be an investigation within all levels of BLM considering the unavoidable damage to our public lands. There is no mitigation provided for to restore this biologically wild, remote, and untrammeled landscape in northwestern Nevada and southeastern Oregon.”

We see TNEB in Calico except for industrialization and right of way projects like the Ruby Pipeline. Wild horses and burros are not the problem. Be sure to let YOUR representatives in government know how you feel.

RIP Old Gold.






Mustang Monday™ November 21st: Email President Obama

Mr. President Stop the Calico Roundup! (Photo © Cat Kindsfather, all rights reserved)

In all time zones for Mustang Monday™ please email President Obama and ask him to Stop the Calico Roundup now. Tell him that less than 2 years ago 1,922 wild horses were rounded up and that you don’t want them zeroed out. Mention there is no accurate head count and estimates cannot justify a roundup when thriving natural ecological balance (TNEB) exists on the range. Bring up the fact that the National Academy of Science is conducting a study on management but needs to have mustangs on the Calico range to study. Tell the President that wild horses are valuable and should not be cleared off public land to make way for the ‘New Energy Frontier’ but rather there can be a win-win with the wild horses roaming freely on their home land.

Click here to send your email http://www.whitehouse.gov/contact/submit-questions-and-comments  Send a copy to Contact@ProtectMustangs.org and we will post it on this site.

You can Tweet the action by using this link http://www.twitlonger.com/show/ea06j6 . Please use the hashtags #MustangMonday and #WildHorses or #Mustang .

The last Calico roundup was the deadliest roundup in history. Let’s make our voices heard and stop this now!

In gratitude,

Anne Novak
