Americans Outraged over Gov't Plan to Kill 33,000 Wild Horses

The Latest from the Associated Press 11/15/08

Wild Horse Advocates Make BIG Noise against BLM Over Mass Extermination Plan
of 33,000 wild horses;

Click title above for article;

You too can contribute to the BIG Noise we are making for the BLM by leaving
your comments with them on the "Comments" page of their website. They are
asking for it and are feeling our rage already!

Here is a link to the BLM on-line commentary form where they are asking for
public comment;

Also, Call the BLM and let them know by telephone; DO BOTH!
1 800- 710- 7597

Please also call SANDRA CHEREB, the Associated Press reporter who is
covering the story. She is not new to the issues. She can be reached through
the AP office number at 1-800-710-7597 Please do share your outrage with

Please also contact your Congressional Representatives and Senators to
express the same,....and to ask for emergency Congressional Hearings to be
called in the matter of the BLMs mismanagment of our wild horses and their
plan for the immediate extermination of 33,000
of them. We need them to take action NOW!

Here is a link where you can find out who your representatives & senators
are, if you dont know, and I believe you can contact them from these links
also, but I may be wrong. Check and see;

Tell them to STOP the Wild Horse Killings NOW!

and find your State Senators here;

Also I would like to remind you that Rep. Nick Rahall (D.WVa) has championed
the cause of the wild horses in the past. Here is a link where you can
contact him and ask for help for the horses; tell him to support emergency
congressional hearings to be held NOW!

Rep. Nick Rahall (D. WVa.)

Keep Up with the Latest Developments through the
American Herds Blog, where they even have a link to a streaming live video
where you can watch Mondays Meeting of the Wild Horse & Burro Advisory
Committee LIVE and listen as they give the death sentence to these 33,000
wild horses

Also, I AM THINKING, why cant some of the Big-Whig Wild Horse Mother Orgs
and/ or the Humane Society or the Animal Welfare Institute or even Peta or
some other MILLION DOLLAR MOTHER ORG ....have one of their slew of lawyers
file an administrative appeal against the findings of the Government
Accountabilty Office's Report? This is the
report that gives the green light to the BLm to go ahead with their killing
plan. I dont think it would be to hard to prove the findings of the report
are arbitrary and caprious and that the determinations therein were rendered
as an abuse of their power & discretion. The
GAO's Report reported that the BLMs accounting methods are inadequate and
unreliable, so how can they base any "rational" or reasonable decision on
said admitted LACK of reliable information? Where are all
our big-whig animal rights / animal welfare / wild lawyers? There
are good grounds for appeal of the GAO Report and an appeal just might give
the 33,000 thousand American Wild Horses a temporary reprive from the death
sentence the BLm and the GAO have given them. I dont want to sound too much
like Ralph Nader bemoaning the death of democracy in America today, and
crying out for America to wake up, but I will repeat the question he put
forth to his constituants in a lecture he gave on a college campus last
fall; In the midst of all the "political chananigins," and "dirty dealings,"
against the American People ( and, of course, now, the horses) he asked,
"Where are all the lawyers?" And that is what I am asking today on behalf of
the horses. Surely there must be some legal goings on for them somewheres
filed by some one or org on their behalf? If not, it seems to me we should

If you care about the lives of these horses, and the future of Americas Wild
Horses in general, please Call all these National News publications and let
them know whats going on with our nations wild horses and that America is
OUTRAGED at the notion of our government sending 33,000 of them off to
Tell the reporters that know its all about special interest, exploitation &
and greed and that the facts of the case will prove you out. If you are a
"newbie" to the plight of our wild horses and you arent quite sure what to
say to the reporters, you can lead them to other, more well informed wild
horse advocates or send them links at least. It will get some attention and
every little bit helps. .

The lives of 33,000 American Wild Horses and the whole future of our
American Wild Horses depends on us.
