“Many compliments to the advocates who compiled the raw phone contact information for members of the House Appropriations Committee that meets this Tuesday morning, (TOMORROW), when the fate of America’s wild horses and burros will again be joined. Also included are the Senate members who’ll play a key role in deciding whether the provision allowing the reintroduction of US horse slaughterhouses will be defeated. Calls are the key, immediate and polite. “No slaughter, NO WAY!” is the goal. 

After calling, Tweet, Facebook, Email…do everything you can to get the message out but please remain focused and polite, it is a simple message, “No Slaughter, NO WAY”!  Let’s get after it!!” ~ R.T.

  1. House list is to remove sale of wild horses without limitations and stop their euthanasia.
    Senate list for Agr appro. is to include Udall-Graham amendement to defund funds for horse slaughter plant inspections.

  2. I can’t believe they want to bring this back. We should be outlawing the slaughter of horses in the USA permanently. We should make it illegal to transport horses to Mexico, Canada, and all other countries for slaughter.

  3. Atticusfinch90160@hotmail.com Please do not vote for the slaughter of our horses and burros. There are so many people out there who love animals. You will gain more respect and admiration for choosing
    life. Also more votes when election time comes around. Please choose for the animals to live.

  4. Dear President Trump,
    The following was sent July 17, 2017 to the US House Appropriations CommitteeChairman Rodney Frelinghuysen. Please consider the manipulation of public funds used to extingquish American’s Native and Cultural federally protected Heritage Herds of Wild Horses and Burros On OUR Public Lands.

    Sent to US House Appropriations Committee: Please send the Department of Interior Appropriations Bill for FY 2018 back to the committee in light of the recent disclosure that Representative Chris Stewart violated Title 18 of the US Criminal Code and provided false information in the previous hearings.
    Prior to the above circumstances, I have personally witnessed the false allegations of starvation et al: claims that extinguished an entire herd of 29 Southern Ca wild horses (extinction), and the illegal conversion of a federally “reserved” herd area to another use.
    This is far from the first time that false testimony is being used to pass a politically motivated and fatally flawed agenda. I suggest that the information provided by the DOI to support the appropriation of funds for horse slaughter has always been based on inaccurate and incomplete data.
    The decision to allow entities to adopt wild horses has and is, based on false information that there is an overpopulation, or thousands of starving horses in the wild.
    I respectfully request that Appropriations Committee consider the Data Quality Act which was enacted as Section 515 of the Treasury and General Government Appropriations Act of 2001 (PL 106-544, H.R. 5658.
    The amendment should therefore be repealed, and the budget for FY 18 should have none of the language of entities or agencies receiving federally protected animals until the necessary and imperative issues are addressed .i.e.Wild horse/burro populations constitute less than one percent of wildlife and livestock grazing on the public domain. It is a very small portion of the US federal government owned 640 million acres of land and about 28% of the nation’s total surface, 2.27 billion acres.
    Surely, repatriation of wild horses to sufficient habitat can be facilitated under FLPMA (Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976.) FLPMA provided for addition habitat as ACECs, which facilitates the need of special management attention. See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Area_of_Critical_Environmental_Concern.
    Respectfully submitted for the record,
    Kathleen Hayden

  7. It seems to me that the to the republicans that they seem to like killing anything, I mean they are the ones who favor the death penalty to people who commit murder, of course people who kill other people should be killed. But the horses didn’t kill anyone. I like Donald trump because he’s keeping us safe from terrorists, but I think trump won’t let horse slaughter happen if he knows the people don’t want it. He’s actually for the people unlike like bush and Obama who cared about them selves.

  8. No to slaughter!!! Leave the horses alone! It doesn’t make sense to kill thousands of animals for the sake of the cattle ranchers. There’s other methods for controlling the herd sizes. I can’t imagine wiping out a hole species for simply just existing! I would rather the govornment focus more on depopulating our prisons vs inocent animals. You know? Start getting rid of the death row inmates!

  10. If it were not for the equine(wild or tame) and the cow and oxen the country we know today would NOT exist. We must protect these beasts for all they have sacrificed. And continue to do so….
