Our guests tonight will be Susan Wagner, President & Founder of Equine Advocates and Carol Walker, Dir. of Field Documentation for Wild Horse Freedom Federation.

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) recently presented Congress with a new plan for managing America’s wild horses & burros, titled “Management Options for a Sustainable Wild Horse and Burro Program.”

There is nothing “sustainable” for America’s wild horses & burros in the BLM’s new plan. This new plan is a blueprint to kill, to sterilize and to ship wild horses & burros overseas, where the BLM has no jurisdiction. With this new plan, the BLM will quickly rid themselves of the wild horses & burros they were supposed to “protect,” and will manage the remaining ones to extinction within the next generation or two. Carol and Susan will discuss all of the details.  And, we’ll tell you what you can do to help the wild horses & burros.

You can read the BLM’s new plan HERE.

You can read the recommendations for managing wild horses & burros prepared by Wild Horse Freedom Federation HERE.

This show will be hosted by Debbie Coffey (V.P. and Dir. of Wild Horse Affairs) of Wild Horse Freedom Federation.

Our guests tonight will be Dawn Vincent, Head of Communications for The Donkey Sanctuary (UK), and Marjorie Farabee, Dir. of Wild Burro Affairs for Wild Horse Freedom Federation.  In January 2017, The Donkey Sanctuary (UK) issued a report titled “Under the Skin,” about the global demand for donkey skins used to produce a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) called ejiao.  Increasing annual global demand has been estimated to be up to four million, with some sources reporting upper limits of demand in China to be 10 million skins.

The trade in donkey skins and meat is a growing global concern in terms of animal welfare, public health and economic, social and cultural stability.  Learn what you can do to help save the donkeys.

This show will be hosted by Debbie Coffey, V.P. and Dir. of Wild Burro Affairs for Wild Horse Freedom Federation.
