Another Busy Day!

Sorry, folks, but I am preoccupied at the moment, and for the remainder of the week. We are trying to adopt a new dog. It's a long story, but I am a nervous wreck. I will be taking several days off work. Priorities....animals always come first!

I will be posting the news in titles and links so I can get some other things done. Read what you want and thanks for supporting the horses!

Oppose Roundup of Wild Horses in Idaho's Remote Challis Mountains

Please Take Action Today!

Comments Due by September 10, 2012
Despite receiving over 4,000 public comments urging an alternative action, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is moving ahead with a plan for a helicopter roundup and removal of 140 wild horses living in Idaho's Challis Herd Management Area. The BLM allows just 185 wild horses to live in this 160,000-acre public land area, and estimates the current population to be 322. The roundup will take place sometime between September 15 and November 15, 2012 -- just over three years after the last BLM roundup at Challis killed at least 11 horses, orphaned several foals, and permanently removed 225 horses from their remote mountain home.
The BLM is now seeking public comments on a Preliminary Environmental Assessment (PEA) for the roundup plan. Please take just one moment to voice your opposition to the BLM's removal of more wild horses from the Challis HMA, where the agency allocates five times more forage to private livestock than to federally-protected mustangs. With nearly 50,000 wild horses incarcerated in holding facilities and fewer than 33,000 free in the wild, the BLM -- and American taxpayers -- cannot afford to continue these costly and cruel wild horse roundups! 
Please speak up for Idaho mustangs by personalizing the sample letter below and then press the "Send Message" button to send your email to the BLM in Idaho. Thank you very much!
