The Horses Need You! Please help!

A message from Madeline Pickens that I just had to post. It makes me very angry that we are housing hundreds of thousands inmates who are either brutal criminals or imprisoned victims of the so called "Drug Wars" that are costing us billions of dollars each.

Americans exclaim in horror when we see genicide in other countries. I think it's time we took responsiblity for the genicide that we commit in our own country for the sake of convenience and/or profit. The Native Americans and their beautiful wild horses have been victims to our ignorance. Please read this message and take action.

Stop the Slaughter and Imprisoning of Thousands of Wild Horses & Burros
Contact Ken Salazar at the Bureau of Land Management

"Today there are over 30,000 wild horses and burros that are at risk of being euthanized by the US government. These wild horses are protected by The Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act of 1971 (Public Law 92-195) which states: "It is the policy of Congress that wild free-roaming horses and burros shall be protected from capture, branding, harassment, or death."

But sadly, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), the government agency responsible for America's wild horses, is doing just the opposite. Claiming escalating costs and spending cuts, the BLM is holding about 10,000 of these wild horses snout-to-butt in long-term holding pens that cost American taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars. In addition, the BLM plans to increase the euthanization (via gun shot to the head) of these wild horses to help manage the herds.

It doesn't have to be this way.

With great research and planning, my team and I have developed a plan to create a million-acre Wild Horse Sanctuary in Nevada where these beautiful wild horses can live free and protected. The Sanctuary will return these wild horses and burros to their natural habitat, and be open to the public so families and children can come and experience the freedom and beauty of these extraordinary animals.

My plan saves American taxpayers approximately $700 million over the decade, provides sanctuary to America's wild horses and creates a new public resource for our children, what more could one ask for? To make this happen, I need your help. The BLM needs to hear from you - the American people - that you care about saving America's wild horses. Please email Interior Secretary Salazar and the Bureau of Land Management and tell them you care.

Help me save America's wild horses. Together, we can make history." Madeline Pickens
