Wow, there are alot things going on right now that will hurt our Wild Horses & Burros. I am posting links to where you can go if you would like to help in the fight to save them & keep them free roaming.
A bill with potentially catastrophic consequences for wild horses and burros in Nevada has passed the General Assembly and is scheduled for a hearing before the Senate Natural Resources Committee on May 11, 2011. Assembly Bill 329 (AB329) would define “wildlife” to specifically exclude wild horses and burros within the context of Nevada’s water allocation law. This would set the stage to declare these species as non-beneficial users of the state’s water and therefore deprive them of the right to access this critical, life-sustaining resource.
If the bill passes, every wild animal in Nevada — whether native or non-native, captive or wild-born, from mollusks to mammals — EXCEPT wild horses and burros will be entitled to access water in the state.
Will you please act today against this ill-advised and cruel legislation that is being advanced at the request of a small group of cattlemen and hunters? The bill is contrary to the best interests of the majority of Nevada citizens and of all Americans who cherish wild horses and burros and want to see them protected.
There are very easy buttons for you to click on to act NOW to help & there are more links for more information on what is going on. Non-Nevada residents can go Here to sign a petition to Governor Brian Sandoval.
If you go to the above link, there is a copy of a sample letter, but please use your own words.
Wyoming Wild Horses Need Your Help!
Take easy action here:
You can submit your own comments regarding the Environmental Assessment (EA) for the White Mountain and Little Colorado Herd Management Areas (HMAs). There are gross inadequacies and faulty data utliized in the scope of this EA that need to be addressed and rectified before a roundup of these two herds should be allowed. If a roundup is conducted this summer, the two herds will be decimated to a total population of 274 horses on over 1 million acres! The Cloud Foundation’s comments for this EA are available online HERE. Read on for a sample format!
Comments need to be submitted by Friday, May 6th, no later than the close of business at 4:30 PM Mountain Time. Comments can be submitted via mail at:
