CAES & Coyote Canyon Caballos d’Anza Orgs. Respond to AWHC & Their Handling of the Situation of the Modoc Wild Horses
DISMISSING SMALLER ADVOCATE ORGANIZATIONS BECAUSE THEY WILL NOT BLINDLY FOLLOW MAY NOT BE THE BEST WAY TO DO BUSINESS. IT DOESN’T UNITE A MOVEMENT IT DIVIDES, WHICH IS A GOVERNMENT TACTIC…
Now in this case with the horses in the Modoc National Forest in California…we are asking that you use the millions of dollars you collect from the public and from the government to do what is right. Use the laws that exist to protect these horses.
It is important to note that the previous CA Wild Horse and Burro Manager Tom Pogacnik stated that the BLM Solicitor determined that BLM could not abdicate jurisdiction over the horses to another agency.
“When and if available scientific information convinces the experts that determine the checklist of native species to North America that Equus caballus should be considered as an indigenous species, they will make the change in the next revision to the list, and then we would take that fact into consideration for inclusion on our state animal lists.”
- campaign to add wild horses to the inventory of native species,
- get them listed under Ca Endangered Species Act
- fight to stop inhumane roundups
- fight for increased AMLs to maintain genetically viable herds which retains their unique genetics in different pockets of the west
- openly oppose the 10-year plan to reduce herds to AML
- openly oppose plans to put wild horses in pastures or sanctuaries
Until you do this your organization is not using the most powerful tools in the box.
