No More Wild Horses?
Congress just opened the backdoor to killing or
slaughtering thousands of them. They also called for accelerated roundups to
remove as many as 50,000 from their homes on the range. if this trend continues, there soon could be no
more wild horses on the range.
It's time to take a stand.
On May 30, 2017, the American Wild Horse Campaign (AWHC) and people
around the world will join their voices in #ImWithTheBand,
a social media campaign that sends our collective demand across the country and
will raise money to fight what may be the last
stand to save our wild horses!
