Horse Slaughter

Action Alert: Call your U.S. Senators to save wild horses & burros!

The wild horses & burros need YOUR voice.  Now.

Language in the 2018 Budget would allow 46,000 wild horses in BLM holding facilities and tens of thousands more on public lands to be killed.  Your phone calls are the only chance the wild horses & burros have to stop this from happening.

Please fax (your letter will get to them quickly) even a simple handwritten note and/or make phone calls to your U.S. Senators, and tell them you are a constituent and:

1) You do NOT want our wild horses and burros to be killed, “euthanized” or sterilized.

2) Do NOT remove the sales restrictions that protect our wild horses and burros from being sold into the slaughter pipeline.

3) You oppose horse slaughter in the U.S.

Call or fax a note to YOUR U.S. Senators, and then also call of fax a note to:

  1. Senator Schatz could use more calls. Could it be that he doesn’t understand the seriousness of this or doesn’t even know about it?
    The person who answered the phone (male) didn’t really want to hear about our Wild Horses or our Wild Burros

    Sen. Brian Schatz (D-HW) 202-224-3934 202-228-1153


  2. The Bullcrap horsemeat propaganda is being spread into Asia as Duquette plans his Wild Horse BBQ. While Canada is happily willing to get out of the US Horse meat issues caused by EU standards being changed by drugs, doping, etc the media in small scale in other random countries are trying to make horsemeat appear healthy. While it’s fact that No conclusive science was ever done that stated horsemeat was actually healthy many were done concluding it was not. In America the factual results are not the same as say Kazakstan., Mongolia, Korea or Dartmoor. In fact, these Countries attach legends, myths and other nonsensical data to horsemeat. They say horsemeat has extra Omega 3…really? Tests show there is Absolutely NO difference between beef and horsemeat on Omega 3 except where horses are fed supplements and feeds high in Omega 3 but they are fed with substances that are banned by Our US government. They also claim it gives superhuman strength. Sadly all myths have a undertone of rreality……Horses themselves Are strong however the meat does not carry superhuman strength over, in fact the lean protein that they speak of is lethal if consumed as only protein source and nothing else with it. The science in other countries has to test horses for radiation before consuming their local stock so it appears their super human qualities may be a byproduct of man made weapons materials and other such things their local is exposed to. Why bring this up? With 1 Canadian plant closed in March of this year and no hope of increasing the public desire towards US slaughter they want to push Bureau horses into the food chain. False sense of security for a dying trade as they spread false meat propaganda of its healthy made up effects. Watch as propaganda spreads in a vile attempt to pressure reopening.


    • The Stewart amendment language would give the BLM and USFS carte blanche to ship horses immediately on rounding them up — so no vaccinating, deworming, branding, or even identifying would be required.

      We would have even less accountability than now, with no way to independently verify numbers, dates, locations, ages, gender or condition of any wild horses unfortunate enough to ever be caught. This all at taxpayer expense but private interests would profit, of course, and this policy would only encourage more deliberate and extensive fleecing of the public. Any who suffered from eating their meat would of course be in other countries and their health evidently doesn’t matter to our government.

    Rep Stewart stated during the closed-door Summit that HORSES ON THE RANGE can be euthanized if his current amendment is passed.

    This applies to our wild horses on the range as well as the ones in holding. That means our of the approx. 110 thousand wild horses that exist in this country the bill authorizes BLM to kill horses over their arbitrary total AML set for the country of 27,000 wild horses. We need everyone to call their federal representative and their 2 federal senators and tell them you do not support the death, via slaughter or euthanasia, of any healthy or unadoptable wild horses. They should be released and kept on the range and safely managed with birth control vaccines as needed.

  4. every fax I sent was disrupted by the phone being taken offline. None of the faxes went through. is the second number behind each name a fax number as well?


  5. As far as the drugs used on wild horses go..they have already been given whatever drugs. so the meat is absolutely unsafe even if killed on the spot. the drugs are already in their systems.
