As Congress considers proposals in the Budget to kill tens of thousands of wild horses & burros, and to re-open horse slaughter plants in the U.S., it is important to note that the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) gives wild horses and burros substances that are banned in animals to be used for human consumption.

Be sure to send this article to your Congressional representatives.

If a wild horse or burro is given any of these banned substances, even only one time, the horse or burro should not ever be used for human consumption.  Dr. Ann Marini stated “Remember that it is the administration, not the blood level of the drug(s), that determine whether an animal, including horses, are eligible for slaughter.”

Dr. Ann Marini and John Holland, Pres. of Equine Welfare Alliance (EWA), were guests on Wild Horse & Burro Radio to talk about this topic.  You can listen to the archived radio show HEREDr. Ann Marini also spoke at the Equine Advocates’ American Equine Summit (2013) and you can watch the video HERE.

Here is a list of BANNED AND DANGEROUS SUBSTANCES COMMONLY GIVEN TO HORSES  SENT TO SLAUGHTER:  http://www.humanesociety.org/assets/pdfs/horse/drugs_given_horses.pdf

Using BLM records from FOIA documentation and other sources, below you’ll see an example of some of the drugs the BLM gives to wild horses and burros, (and one time use of any of them means wild horses & burros should not be slaughtered for human consumption):
