ACTION ALERT: STOP THE SECRET MEETING OF THE SOCIETY OF MAD SCIENTISTS AND HORSE HATERS!

20938941_10211853961197901_1445228357_n

**Tell USU President Noelle Cockett and Mad Scientist Messmer that they are breaking UT Code Title 52, Chapter 4, Open & Public Meetings Act. **

Talking points:

*NO public, state or federal funds, paid to the University, can be used for this CLOSED conference/workshop.

*Members attending, using taxpayer money to pay for entry fees, hotel or other travel expenses, are also breaking the law by attending.

*This closed meeting, in which they intend to discuss the fate of public resources (wild horses & burros) and how public funds, taxpayer dollars will be used to implement that fate, does not meet the requirements for closed meeting or executive session.

*The plan to record all but the panel discussion with the scientific ‘experts’ is unacceptable. The public has the right t know and hear the opinions of the scientists that this representative ‘coalition’ or horse haters bases their decisions on. (Too often the science is twisted to meet a pre-determined outcome.)

Flood emails, answering machines, and fax lines with messages expressing your outrage! USU must open this meeting to the press and public or face the consequences of violating the law!

Citizens Against Equine Slaughter is raising funds to send Patience, a delegate for CAES, to the National Wild Horse and Burro Summit. The conference will take place in Salt Lake City, Utah on August 22nd – 24th, 2017. The goal of the summit will be to discuss full implementation of the 1971 Wild Horse and Burro Management Act. The meeting will be attended by Utah Governor Gary Herbert, Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke, and Utah Representative Chris Stewart, among others. As many of you know, wild horse and burros are facing unrestricted sale to slaughter and/or euthanasia in the coming months. Unrestricted slaughter was already approved by the House Appropriations Committee and will be voted on by the Senate Appropriations Committee in early August. It is imperative that an advocate for wild horses and burros attend this important summit. So far, there are no other advocates attending the meeting, but there needs to be a voice for the horses and burros! Patience has the knowledge and legal expertise to represent our advocacy. This fund is to cover the registration fee ($275), the field tour fee ($60) and accomodations ($215). We need to raise funds quickly! Please help get Patience to Utah to speak out for our wild horses and burros!
