Don’t Allow the Slaughter of Wild Horses on Rangelands

Target: U.S. Congressperson Chris Stewart, State of Utah

Goal: Stop calling for the slaughter of wild horses on public lands.

Wild horses and burros may soon face mass slaughter if a handful of government officials and lobbyists have their way. At a recent conference in Utah, a deputy assistant of the Interior and a number of politicians, including Utah congressman Chris Stewart, pledged to lift restrictions on killing these innocent animals.

Wild horses are an iconic part of the American west and are a symbol of our history and heritage. They are also living beings deserving of freedom and a humane existence. Those calling for their slaughter claim that overpopulation has resulted in horses and burros dying of thirst and starvation, but horse advocates counter these claims and say that horses are really suffering from a lack of open land thanks to ranching and farming interests.

More must be done to give horses the land they need to roam freely and to control their populations through more humane methods. Sign this petition to urge Stewart to withdraw his support of the slaughter and put an end to this cruel proposal.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Representative Stewart,

The plight of America’s wild horses and burros is one that should be addressed seriously, but mass slaughter simply is not the answer. There are other ways that the horse population can be controlled and managed, such as through increasing the amount of grazing land available and through sterilization and release programs. However, in reality, what is really causing these horses to suffer is not their “excess” numbers, but the fact that agricultural interests have forced them onto ever-dwindling tracts of land.

I agree that horses deserve to live humanely and should not be allowed to starve or die of thirst, but culling them denies them any chance of having the life they deserve. I urge you to withdraw your support from any plans to kill or sell wild horses and burros to slaughterhouses and to commit to improving their quality of life in the wild.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Are there any Cowboys & Horse lovers who support donald trump? Does murdering the Horses of America sound like an OK thing to do? Maybe you should take a stand on this. I know I have. I have signed & Rted this. Care to join me?

  2. Garry Benton says:

    Send that fucking s.o.b congressman apiece of your mind. Please.

  3. Horses are NEVER to be used for consumption — horses are majestic animals who belong either roaming freely on the range or in the care of horse lovers where they can live happily & comfortably — anything short of this, is considered cruel & unconscionable, not to mention immoral & should NEVER be accepted by society — Think of the relationship of horse & human over the centuries — we MUST do right by our horses — get some standards — get some sanity — get some compassion — Let’s give our horses a good LIFE! — Horses are NOT stuffed animals — HORSES ARE TO BE RESPECTED & LOVED — We need laws — then we need to enforce those laws — horses need our protections — the kill buyers along with the horse eating market continue to engage in their evil because they are not STOPPED — We must STOP them!

    • I totally agree with you Bo. We want to Make America Great Again not a killing field of animals who for hundreds of years have done nothing but serve us, at times protect us. Horses, donkeys, mules, burros have served us, they are living creatures, service animals, animals of beauty and grace, they must be respected NOT BEATEN AND EATEN!

  4. Alexandre Engelen says:

    Always killing … some humans are really sick! Is it due to overpopulation? Then we need war! Crazy people, stop now!
    Why intervene in the animal world? Let nature take its course and leave space for the animals … selfish people!!

    • Joan Oswald says:

      You are right there, we do need another war and it looks as if its on the way when a few million humans leave the earth lets hope its the evil,violent disrespecfull and cruel crap that get it first!Horses have been violated since time began ( 170.000) died at the battle of Waterloo just an example and the suffering goes on we are no further centuarys later,caused by the Human beast!

  5. Denise Devereux says:

    The only species needing to be culled from this planet for the most part is the HUMAN species.
    May the Wraith of God come down like a spear on the perpetrators, enablers and supporters of this vile act. May their worst nightmares come true and hurt them where they will hurt most. KARMA
    Your time is coming and sooner than you think!

      Because he and his cronies want the forage for private cattle ranchers to graze their privately owned cattle on token lease payments- far less than would be paid to lease private property. This is all about cattle ranchers.

    This makes me sick. I can’t believe men like this exist. They would sell their souls and take many lives if it meant money in their pockets. Our politicians don’t have an ounce of integrity or moral backbone . Please tell me you won’t be bought…please leave these horses alone.

  11. Secret documents reveal the plot from 2008 to kill and dispose of America’s wild horses and burros. Read the documents here: http://protectmustangs.org/?p=9850

    Then on September 9, 2016, the Bureau of Land Management’s Wild Horse & Burro Advisory Board voted to kill the alleged 45,000 wild horses in taxpayer funded holding facilities and pastures. Do they want to cover-up the fraud that has been going on for years by killing the evidence?

    Taxpayers and the general public want to know:
    ◦How much fraud has been committed regarding the wild horse and burro count on public land and in corrals?
    ◦How many budgets were approved using fraudulent information?
    ◦How many wild horses have gone to slaughter?
    ◦How many wild horses and burros have been shot and killed?
    ◦How many unbranded foals did the kill-buyers get to sell overseas?

    We request an immediate Congressional investigation and independent head count, with photo IDs, of the alleged 45,000 wild horses and burros rounded up and held in captivity–at taxpayer expense.

    In addition, we call for an immediate moratorium on roundups, transport and removals for a precise independent count, with photo ID, of all the federally protected wild horses and burros in the wild. This must occur before any more wild horses or burros are rounded up and/or transported, trapped, chipped, collared, removed, sterilized, given pesticide PZP, GonaCon®, SpayVac, IUDs, etc., researched or experimented on in any manner to prevent further fraud against taxpayers as well as prevent abuse against wild horses and burros who should be protected from harassment and abuse by law.

    We request a complete inventory of American wild horses and burros at the following locations:
    1.Every Herd Management Area
    2.Every Herd Area
    3.Every “Complex”
    4.Every Wild Horse Territory
    5.Every temporary holding facility
    6.Every short-term holding facility
    7.Every long-term holding facility, pasture, eco-sanctuary, etc.
    8.Mustang Heritage Foundation facilities and all equids in their program
    9.TIP Trainers’ facilities
    10.All private contractors’ facilities
    11.Research facilities
    12.Any other locations where wild horses and burros are held in captivity and/or live on public land.

    The public, voters of America and taxpayers are outraged and demand immediate action. Thank you.

    This petition will be delivered to:U.S. Senate
    U.S. House of Representatives
    President of the United States

  12. that’s right, chris stewart-kill kill kill.Take the easy way out you idle bastard! You’ve deprived the natural horse population of their historic land, now get them out of your way! Easy.NOT!! Listen to the experts who know how to control and put your big man guns away.You know nothing!

  13. Congressman Stewart, If you have a place in our Congress and you allow this horse slaughter, you need to be outed. It is shameful of you to allow this and not protect these horses as they are an American heritage. Who the hell gives you idiots in government the right to kill kill kill any creature you want. Whose pocket are you in? Do the right thing show some humanity and this really is not a nice legacy for your kids knowing daddy commits animal cruelty

  14. Is everyone in the Trump administration a complete immoral twat? It appears so to the rest of the world. The only species over-populating the planet is humans. Leave these horses alone to live as they always have and kick the stupid ranchers etc. off the land.

  16. You are spitting into the Face of God!
    May He show no mercy to you!

  17. juanita dibley says:

    Stop this killing of animals now .You all a bunch of bastards. ANIMAL ABUSER NEED KILLING

  18. Lilian Caughlin says:

    I have yet to read a comment from the BLM on why birth control is not implemented. Injecting the mares and castrate the stallions. At least most of them. They are rounded up anyway. They can be released in the area they were captured and die off naturally. This way the numbers are down to be managed. What is so difficult about that. There is no way that it is more expensive than what is being done now by shipping and warehousing that many animals. Not to mention the turmoil for the animals and the rightfully so uproar of the US citizens.
    Hores should be treated with respect. They walked beside mankind in all their quests since foever. We need to remember that.

  19. Get rid of the goddam cows and ranchers and keep the horses and burrows instead!

  20. Siinging worshoρ songs iѕ nice however that?s not
    the onloү strategy to worshiρ.? Daddy stɑted, perhaps to make Larry stop singing.
    ?There are llots of ways tto worship.
