So being that many of you have asked what YOU can do to help, the Cloud Foundation and Wild Horse Freedom Federation are asking YOU to:
Share the information above far and wide
First thing Monday Morning CALL; Begin with your Senators and Representatives, then the President–all found in the “Contact Elected Officials” link below. CALL & EMAIL & please use respectful language.
Remind them this is an election year. These are common sense, fiscal and humane issues that concern you and thousands of others.
Ask them to investigate why BLM rejects an offer of working together with free materials and free labor to solve a problem in Rock Springs, WY.
Explain that the BLM removes these horses, taking away their freedom and families. With no place to put them, they are left in short term holding.
Winter is NOT over in Rock Springs–40 MPH winds and deep snow can continue for another 2 months.
If you wish to contact the Wash. DC offices of the BLM officials involved, please respectfully contact them here: email@example.com, 202-912-7260;firstname.lastname@example.org, 202-208-4896.
IN THE HANDS OF KILL BUYERS! When horses are purchased at auction by buyers intending to kill them, they're hauled away in double- decker tractor trailers where they are beaten and often blinded with baseball bats to mollify them. After crossing the border into Mexico, the animals are stabbed on each side-an act to tenderize their meat-and immobilized. Workers, then saw the horses legs off, at the knee and hang them to bleed out-all while the horses are ALIVE! (This is an excerpt, from an article written by Missy Diaz, crediting Victoria Mc Cullough and Sen. Joe Abruzzo for bringing awareness of horse slaughter, to Florida. In 2010 Florida Legislation unanimously passed the Horse Protection Bill, making it a felony to slaughter horses for personal or commercial use.)
