Urge BLM to Ditch Roundup to Stop Inbreeding and Genetic Crisis Facing America’s Wild Burros

America’s wild burros face a genetic crisis due to the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM’s) mismanagement of these hardy little animals. The agency keeps most burro populations so small that inbreeding is inevitable.

The only way to address this is to reduce livestock grazing and increase the number of burros on the range.

BLM’s unscientific “Appropriate” Management Level (AML) stands in the way of this humane alternative to roundups. In this rigged “AML” system, any animal over BLM’s arbitrary quota is considered “overpopulation.”

The BLM plans to decimate the Sinbad wild burro herd — removing 230 of the 290 burros. Leaving just 50 to 70 animals in the herd is literally “managing” the Sinbad burros to slow extinction.

Please take action NOW. Call on BLM to 1) ditch this ill-conceived plan, 2) reduce or eliminate livestock grazing in order to increase AML, and 3) manage these environmentally beneficial animals humanely with PZP.
