URGENT, SPREAD THE WORD TO SAVE THE WILD HORSES AND BURROS FROM SLAUGHTER – happening today 6/21/18!
Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke is scheduled to testify before the Senate Interior Appropriations Subcommittee this Wednesday, June 21. He will defend his Fiscal Year 2018 budget, which asks Congress to lift the ban on destroying healthy wild horses and burros and selling these cherished animals for slaughter.
The Senators on this subcommittee play a key role in determining whether as many as 92,000 wild horses and burros will be slaughtered and their wild populations reduced to near-extinction levels. This includes over 46,000 wild horses and burros that the Bureau of Land Management has in short term and long term holding facilities.
Call Subcommittee Chair Lisa Murkowski, 202-224-6665 and Ranking Member Tom Udall: 202-224-6621. Even though you are not a constituent, let them know that you are calling because our public lands and our wild horses and burros belong to all Americans, and all Americans should have a say in how they are managed.
“My name is _____ calling from _____. Please ask Senator _____ to strongly oppose the BLM’s budget request to lift the ban on killing healthy horses and burros and selling these animals ‘without restriction,’ which would lead to the brutal slaughter of thousands.”
Even if you can’t call by tomorrow, please call. Please post on facebook and ask your friends to make a call. The only way we can stop this pending slaughter is with a lot of public outcry. Thanks!
