This week Congressman Steve Cohen (D-TN) sent a masterful letter to Secretary Haaland and Bureau of Land Management Director Tracy Stone-Manning, calling on them to STOP the roundups and change the course of the Bureau’s failed roundup-and-stockpile system.
Congressman Cohen is a member of the House Committee on Natural Resources (which can hold the Bureau accountable) and a member of the Congressional Animal Protection Caucus.
The Caucus formerly supported the ASPCA/HSUS/Livestock Lobby’s Path Forward — so this letter is a big step in the right direction.
Please — read Congressman Cohen’s phenomenal letter here, share it on social media and tag him! Show your support for this courageous legislator who is calling for change. Don’t forget to use the hashtag #HoldAWildHorseHearing – Congressman Cohen’s Committee Members are the ones who can get it done!
Congresswoman Dina Titus (D-NV) is also leading a charge to stop the roundups.
A longtime ally for our cause, Congresswoman Titus was deeply affected by recent graphic video captured by Wild Horse Education which showed a wild foal being driven in a roundup until its leg literally broke under the stress.
The Congresswoman is introducing a bill to END helicopter roundups as a method of “managing” wild horses/burros.
We believe her bill should be supported, not just because of the obvious animal cruelty, but because there is ample science to demonstrate that roundups DON’T work, not to mention the massive fiscal waste of the current paradigm.
We MUST support those who support our wild horses. Share, post, tag, and let them know we applaud their efforts on behalf of America’s wild horses and burros!
