Don't fund the bloody wild horse roundups!

10,691 Letters Sent So Far

As your constituent, I urge you to reject increasing the budget for the Interior Department's Bureau of Land Management (BLM) wild horse and burro program. In addition, I urge you to join the House in cutting the budget by $2 million to "send a very strong message" about the need for reform this costly and cruel federal program.

The BLM has stated that it will use the increased funding to roundup and remove nearly 5,000 additional mustangs and burros from our public lands by the end the year, after already removing nearly 6,000 wild horses since the fiscal year began in October 2010.

We already have over 42,000 wild horses held captive in holding facilities that will cost taxpayers $46 million this year alone.

Although the BLM is talking about making changes to this program, without pressure from Congress, it will continue to do business as usual. That has been the history of this program. While we have a moral obligation to care for the wild horses already in captivity, we cannot allow this agency to deepen its fiscal black hole by bringing more and more mustangs into taxpayer-funded holding facilities.

As Congress considers drastic spending cuts, we cannot afford to turn a blind eye to this broken federal program that is wasting tax dollars and harming our federally-protected wild horses and burros.

Thank you for your consideration.

THE BLM NEEDS TO BE DEFUNDED. THIS IS A BROKEN FEDERAL PROGRAM THAT IS HARMING OUR FEDERALLY PROTECTED WILD HORSES AND BURROS. THIS MUST STOP NOW. BOTH POPES HAVE ALSO DECLARED ANIMAL ABUSE AND CRUELTY NEW SINS AND HORSES WERE MENTIONED AS A HIGHER FORM OR LIFE THAT SHOULD CERTAINLY NOT BE MADE TO SUFFER OR BE KILLED. THIS IS TRUTH AND THE EVIL BLM SHOULD BE FIRED, FOR NOT OBEYING ANY LAWS AND DOING AS THEY PLEASE TO THESE ANIMALS. WHY THEY ARE SO CRUEL AND EVIL IS BEYOND ME. THEY SHOULD BE APPRECIATED FOR BEING OUR PART OF OUR WILD ANIMAL HERITAGE. THEIR LIVES SHOULD BE RESPECTED. PLEASE READ THE ATTACHED LETTER AND DO AS IT ASKS, SOMETHING HAS TO BE DONE NOW TO THESE LAW BREAKING EVIL CREEPS, WHICH IS ALL THEY ARE.
If this continues, when we go into the wilderness instead of seeing our wonderful wildlife, we will only see cattle. I could go to New Jersey for that.
Just stop. This department of our government needs to go or they'll destroy all of our natural wildlife.
