Americas Wild horses continue to rounded up for slaughter, continue to be shipped to Canada and to Mexico to be made into horsemeat.  The US banned these slaughter houses in thier own country years ago. 

Voices around the World need to unite in order to put an end to this.  Their are viable measures that can be taken to control populations.  These horses are a national treasure and need be protected and treated as such.

In this letter to HSUS Ms. Courtney, dated 7/7/2011 6:18:06 A.M. Mountain Daylight Time, a long time advocate for these beautiful horses writes:

(permission has been granted  by T. Courtney to post on all updates pertaining to this issue)

“To ensure a long term survival for our wild herds, the current close-out strategy of PZP’ing all mares and gelding all stallions is not sustainable.

“While a fertility program might manage our herds, the way the BLM operates means extinction, not long term management. We also know that their numbers are highly inflated, reflecting a true concern for how many mustangs and burros are really out on the range.”

“It is a shame that mustangs have to languish in holding pens, in a country with millions of acres of range available to them. The prison mentality and exploitation of BLM towards these iconic creatures is a shame.”

“I hope HSUS will keep up the pressure to make BLM comply with humane treatment of all horses and burros and to make an end to the culling operations, specially in high heat and inappropriate weather – the assurance of any humane standards which BLM has so greatly violated, the lack of transparency and their unwillingness to involve advocates – there is plenty of evidence of BLM’s shortcomings and cruelty – and it is imperative that each and every case and violation against each horse must be taken into account -enough cases have slipped thru the system and it is time to end this horrific chapter in American history – or we can all look back in 20 years, and reminisce an opportunity missed, the true preservation of our wild horses.” M. Courtney

 

Excerpts from response received by Ms Courtney from HSUS:

”   the BLM recently announced its intent to open “a new chapter in the management of wild horses, burros, and our public lands” by fast-tracking “fundamental reforms” to its current policies and procedures which include reducing the number of wild horses removed from the range by 5,600 (or 24 percent) over the next two years while increasing the number of mares treated with fertility control and released back onto the range from 1,000 to 4,000.

This is a huge accomplishment, but as we know all too well, it’s not enough. Despite the significant decrease in removals, the BLM still plans to remove 15,000 wild horse and burros for our public lands over the next two years, and since it can only find homes for approximately 6,000, by 2012, there could be more than 50,000 animals in holding facilities. That isn’t economically sustainable and it’s bad policy. The BLM needs to further reduce the number of animals it plans to remove from our public lands far beyond its current goals.”

“….using fertility control as a primary means for managing wild horse herds, the BLM could save taxpayers more than $200 million dollars over 12 years while dramatically reducing the number of animals removed from the range annually.”
