Wild horses are being rounded up and removed from their home on our public lands by the thousands every year. Today more wild horses live in captivity in taxpayer- subsidized holding facilities than remain in the wild. This is despite alternatives that are less costly and more humane. Return to Freedom has been promoting “in the wild” management solutions for more than 16 years. It’s time that the Bureau of Land Management stopped bowing to pressure from ranchers who enjoy grazing their livestock on our public lands costing the taxpayer $132 million a year. This subsidized grazing program produces less than 3% of America’s beef supply.
Wild horses are part of our history and our culture and are an enduring symbol of freedom. If we do not protect them now, they will be gone forever. Please sign our petition to call on President Obama, the U.S. Congress, and the U.S. Department of the Interior to halt the Bureau of Land Management wild horse and burro roundup program. After you sign the petition, we’ll keep posted whenever there’s an urgent action related to RTF’s Wild on the Range Campaign.
