Save Our Wild Horses From an Agency Gone Rogue
The Bureau of Land Management has thrown out their wish list of the latest wild horse herds they want to destroy in their Path to Devastation. The Sand Wash Basin Herd in Colorado. The 5 largest herds in Wyoming in the Checkerboard, the North Lander Complex Herds in Wyoming. They have included their favorite dangerous and deadly experimental tools of sterilization such as spaying and using IUDs in mares in their Scoping and Environmental Assessment Plans.
Sand Wash Basin in Colorado:
Adobe Town, Salt Wells Creek, Great Divide Basin, White Mountain, Little Colorado in Wyoming:
North Lander Complex in Wyoming:
The BLM is an out of control rogue agency who must be stopped and stood against by the members of American public who care about our wild horses. What can you do to help? Comment against these horrific plans by the deadline. I will be posting talking points you can use next week. The deadline for comments are April 30, 2021.These three plans will involve removing over 6000 wild horses. The Bureau of Land Management is not even allowing the public to see the over 1200 wild horses at Canon City, Colorado that were removed last fall in the Red Desert Complex Roundup, let alone adopt them. Yet they are eagerly setting up plans to remove thousands more this summer and fall.
ACT NOW – Write, call and contact in any way you can your Senators and Representatives.

Get the word out far and wide. This must not stand. We want our wild horses managed humanely on our public lands where they belong.
- Put an immediate PAUSE on roundup plans until new direction can be worked out for managing America’s wild horses. Work on a new plan for the wild horses that includes the American public. Wild horses belong to the American people.
- Humanely manage our wild horses on our public lands, in their homes where they belong.
- Stop the dangerous experimental sterilization procedures and plans.
- Retire livestock grazing leases in Wild Horse Management Areas. Livestock grazing is the number one cause of range degradation on our public lands.
- Set up a new Agency/organization to manage wild horses on our public lands who has the best interests of our wild horses at its core – remove the BLM from control over them. The agency’s own origin and mandates set up a conflict of interest that is insurmountable.
