Subject: Animal Abuse by BLM
While we are on the subject of animal abuse, please consider writing to your elected officials and to the media about the wild horses and burros who are suffering this very minute in the BLM holding facilities. Sample letter:
PLEASE use your position of authority and influence to persuade the Bureau of Land Management to immediately provide shade and shelter for the public’s wild horses and burros that are currently being held at BLM’s Litchfield holding facility near Susanville, California and the Palomino Valley holding facility near Sparks, Nevada. Hundreds and hundreds of these animals are in these two corrals. They have no shade from the summer’s blazing sun and no shelter from the freezing winter winds in the winter. I have personally and recently seen these captured wild horses even lying down and trying to cool themselves in a few small indentations of slightly moist soil where a little water had leaked out from the trough. They were suffering from the heat. The public has again and again asked the BLM to provide shade for these animals and the BLM has not done it and this very day … these animals are suffering.

Cruelty to animals, also called animal abuse or animal neglect, is the human infliction of suffering or harm upon non-human animals, for purposes other than self-defense or survival. The wild horses and burros currently being held in the BLM corrals are suffering this very day due to the BLM. Please help them.
