Save Utah’s Historic Mustangs: Oppose the BLM Roundup!
Take Action by January 19, 2016
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Cedar City Field Office in Utah is proposing to round up and remove an estimated 500 wild horses from the Sulphur Herd Management Area (HMA). The wild horses in this HMA are one of the best and last remaining examples of the original Spanish Mustangs.
Despite the historical significance of this population, the BLM has set very low “Allowable” Management Levels (AMLs) for the Sulphur horses. Worse, the agency is planning to continually round up these horses every 2 to 5 years over the next 10 years. In these brutal roundups, horses — including tiny foals and elderly or ailing mares and stallions — are stampeded for uncounted miles by helicopters into traps where they are forcibly separated from their families and deprived of their freedom…. forever.
Please take a moment to tell the BLM that there is a better way to manage these and all wild horse populations!
