From the American Wild Horse Preservation:
“Let them go to slaughterhouses.”
That’s what a rancher said should happen to 50,000 wild horses and burros in warehousing during the Today Show segment, “Wild but not Free,” which aired this morning. He went on to add, “what value are they now?”
This underscores so much of what we know about the motivations of the people behind the BLM roundup program, but the NBC segment went further in featuring exclusive video captured by AWHPC of cruel roundup practices, putting the head of the BLM’s program on the defensive and interviewing a 30 year BLM veteran who said, “wild horses aren’t getting a fair shake.”
The segment is must see TV, so if you missed it, or you want to watch it again, you can check it out on NBC News’ special webpage:
With this issue now getting national attention, now is the time to pitch in and help us end the BLM’s program as we know it. Here’s an easy way to get involved:
Sign our “Step In, Sally” letter calling on Interior Secretary Sally Jewell, who oversees the BLM, to take action to reform the BLM’s program.
That’s all for now. We’ll have more soon.
