Good news! We all owe a huge thank you to Sen. Tom Udall, who restored the lost language from The Wild Horse and Burro Act into the Omnibus Spending Bill, which will protect our wild horses and burros from going to slaughter for any reason. The language in the Omnibus Bill is:
“Appropriations herein made shall not be available for the destruction of healthy, unadopted, wild horses and burros in the care of the Bureau or its contractors or for the sale of wild horses and burros that results in their destruction for processing into commercial products.”
This Defund language is “The Udall Amendment” to protect the Wild Horses and Burros. (See pages 714 & 715)
Please take a few moments to send your personal thanks to Sen. Udall for fighting so hard to save our wild horses and burros from going to slaughter. You can use the form at the bottom left side of this page to send an email, or you can write or call:
Sen. Tom Udall

We’d also like to thank Victoria McCullough and Florida State Senator Joseph Abruzzo for their continuing efforts to stop horse slaughter, and to thank Vice President Biden and congressional leaders for their support.
