Stand Against the Slaughter of Wild Horses

Target: Thad Cochran, Chairman of the Senate Committee on Appropriations

Goal: Protect wild horses and burros by passing the amendment that prevents the Bureau of Land Management from slaughtering them.

Wild horses in the U.S. are at risk of being murdered en masse, as the House Rules Committee rejected not one but two bipartisan amendments intended to protect them. Both amendments were set to be packaged into a larger spending bill, but since they were voted down by the House Rules Committee, neither bill will make it to the floor to be voted on with the rest of the spending bill.

The first amendment that the committee turned down would have prevented the Department of Agriculture from funding horse meat inspectors, thus stopping the return of horse slaughter in the U.S. for the first time in 10 years. The other amendment would forbid any of this year’s fiscal appropriations from being used to sell horses and burros for their meat, or for any other processing into a commercial product that would result in the animal’s death or destruction.

The protections of this latter amendment, however, still have a chance to take effect. The Senate Appropriations Committee (which recently voted against horse slaughter) has yet to act on the Interior Appropriations bill, which includes restrictions on the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) from using its appropriations to murder wild horses. Sign below to urge the committee stand against the murder of these innocent wild animals for human consumption.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Chairman Cochran,

The Senate Committee on Appropriations must remain steadfast in its opposition of horse slaughter. Following the rejection by the House Rules Committee of two bipartisan amendments protecting wild horses from mass murder, it is more vital than ever that the Senate protect these innocent animals.

The Senate Appropriations Committee has not yet acted on the Interior Appropriations bill, which includes the BLM’s Wild Horse and Burro Program. The BLM must not be allowed to kill wild horses and burros, or to sell them off to be killed by others. I urge you to stand strong and protect America’s wild horses from slaughter.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  3. Magnificent horses have worked and slaved for centuries as slaves to human beings, both in building America and in wars. They are still working and slaving for humans!!! How DARE we mere humans EVEN THINK TO MURDER THEM!!!! We should be ashamed of ourselves for our many, many wrongs against the full spectrum of animals. We are ruining this precious planet and its flora and fauna left and right! Perhaps there is only one answer to this and that’s for humanity to no longer exist.
