Last week the Bureau of Land Management’s National Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Board recommended that the Bureau euthanize or sell “without limitation” excess “unadoptable” horses and burros in the BLM’s off-range corrals and pastures. To sell the animals “without limitation” essentially removes protocols aimed at ensuring they won’t be slaughtered.
The Bureau has not yet made a formal response to the board’s recommendation, although, in a statement, it said that it will continue to care and seek good homes for animals that have been removed from the range. “What this means is that we will continue with our current policy, which is not to sell or send wild horses or burros to slaughter,” it said.
TAKE ACTION: Please take a few minutes to contact Neil Kornze, the Director of BLM. Tell him you oppose the National Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Board's recommendation to allow the agency to euthanize and/or sell wild horses and burros without limitation. Kornze's email: email@example.com
