American Wild Horse Preservation News and Alerts

October 25, 2012
Dear Supporter,

Take Action to Oppose Removal of Historic Timber Horses in Eastern Oregon

Please take easy action today to oppose the government’s plan to remove 338 wild horses from the Murderers Creek Herd Management Area in eastern Oregon. Many of these mustangs are known as “timber horses” who live deep in the Malheur National Forest.
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) wants to reduce this unique wild horse population down to just 50, while allocating five times more forage to private livestock. Please click below to urge BLM to scrap this plan and to keep these wild horses on the range where they belong.
Take Action

Breaking News… 29 More Virginia Range Mustangs Rescued from Slaughter!

Last night, Nevada advocacy groups again mobilized to save 29 more wild horses (4 foals, 12 mares and 13 gelded stallions) from slaughter. For the third time in two months, members of Hidden Valley Wild Horse Protection Fund, Least Resistance Training Concepts and other groups, returned to the Fallon Livestock Exchange where the state of Nevada had again dumped wild horses it had captured and removed from the hills outside of Virginia City. Once again, the advocates had to outbid kill buyers who intended to truck the mustangs to Mexican slaughterhouses.
Thanks in part to your generous support, the local advocates have now saved 82 wild horses from the cruel fate of slaughter. Now they must care for these horses while permanent homes are found. Your help to continue this heroic rescue effort is desperately needed and deeply appreciated.
