Postponed Tuesday the 17th – Thursday the 19th still on Calendar…Budget Senate Hearings are on the calendar for Oct 17 & 19

Your action is needed….fill their inboxes, faxes emails and facbook and twitter accounts. This is it folks…now or never. The fate of up to 120,000 wild horses and burros depends on your action.

 

 

The Interior Appropriations mark-up by the sub and full committees is on the schedule for next week. The times listed are EST. It says they will be audio only, but I have seen in the past where it says that but they are livestreamed, either way you can listen and/or watch at:

 

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 17, 2017
INTERIOR, ENVIRONMENT, AND RELATED AGENCIES SUBCOMMITTEE (Lisa Murkowski, Chairman)
Markup of the Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2018
9:30 a.m., Room 124, Dirksen Senate Office Building
NOTE: The markup webcast will be audio-only

_________________________________________

 

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 19, 2017
COMMITTEE ON APPROPRIATIONS (Thad Cochran, Chairman)
Markup of the Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2018
Markup of the Homeland Security Appropriations Act, 2018
10:30 a.m., Room 106, Dirksen Senate Office Building
NOTE: The markup webcast will be audio-only

__________________________________________

If you have not done this yet, or even if you have, please make those calls to your 2 senators and the ones listed below. This is it, our wild horses and burros need us to speak up, loudly and in multitude!

Here’s an example of what you can say:

Hi my name is ______ I am calling/faxing/emailing, Senator_____________ today to ask him/her not to vote for any language that allows unrestricted sales or transfers of our wild horses and burros, which was presented by Representative Stewart in the House Bill. I also do not want restrictions lifted that allow my tax dollars to be used for the destruction  (slaughter or euthanasia) of healthy or unadoptable wild horses or burros.

Wild horses and burros need to be managed on the range with a safe birth control vaccine. The facts about this vaccine presented thus far in congressional hearings, have been incorrect. PZP can be darted by helicopter, or by ground. Volunteer groups can, and are in some herds, be used to do the darting and record keeping. PZP costs under $30 per dart. Which is considerably less than rounding them up and warehousing them.
I know the Senator has seen the survey’s that clearly show the American people are not in favor of slaughter, and there have been huge outcries from the American people not to allow what Mr. Stewart called ‘humane’ euthanasia. We must not take a step backward, to be a less compassionate society, when there is a humane way to manage our wild icons, an important part of my culture and heritage.

Please tell the Senator that the people they represent want them to vote NO, on any language in the bill or introduced during the Senate hearings, that means the death of our wild horses and burros. Thank you for hearing my voice on this important issue.

****If faxing or emailing sign your name***

****If it is going to one of your senators (your senators need to hear from you even if they are not on the committee because they will have a vote on the budget when it goes to the full Senate vote) make sure you put your address so they know you are one of their constituents.***

    IS THIS TRUELY GOING TO BE THE NEW LOW…FOR AMERICA !
    TO TURN YOUR BACKS ON WAR HERO’S !!!! ???
    IN 1995 TO 1999 I FOUGHT TO SAVE THE N.C. SHACKELFORD WILD HORSES AND GET THEM PRESIDENTIAL PROTECTION !!!
    THEY ARE NOW N.C.’S STATE HORSE !!! & AROUND THESE PARTS, WE ARE PROUD OF OUR SENATORS, AND LEGISLATORS, OUR GOV !!! & CLOSE TO HOME OUR CARTERET COUNTY BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS WHO MADE THIS HAPPEN !!!
    I plea to you , to please save and protect and RELEASE AMERICAS WILD HORSES !!! I ALSO REQUEST THAT THE Bureau of Land Management as it stands would be dissolved and no more !!! They have been given years and years of a chance to do a management program with the wild horses and they have embarrassingly and with great distress to American people and with more abuse to the animals than any other human beings could ever get away with no citizen could ever get away with the abuse that they have Afflicted Upon Our horses !!!! I not only request that they Bureau of Land Management they dissolved and be done away with , but I also request a full investigation into the abuse and Terro and attacks on these horses that these individuals have committed, and that they be charged for felonies and held accountable !!!! No citizen would ever get away with such abuse to any animal !!!! In closing I give permission to anyone that would like to use this matter to add their name to it and send it to whatever senator or Congressman or Governor or state legislature of your choosing !!!

  2. The horse is what built this country. They are a big part of American history. They have a right to live on state/public lands. NO KILLING NO SLAUGHTER!!

  3. Stop slaughtering and stop rounding up wild horses and Burros. They can be darted with birth control by helicopter or by ground persons. This herding and then slaughtering is an abomination so that cattle ranches can use the land. Stop it!!!
