Imagine that you have your home and family and the days roll by just as they should. You are free and living as you were made to. That’s happiness isn’t it? Living as you should.

One day you are chased by an army and are ripped from it all, seperated and made to stand in a dirt lot. This is the fate of Wyoming’s wild horses if we don’t acted. The state where Buffalo Bill Cody made a town. Known for it’s Wild West history, may not have the symbol of that freedom on it’s plains anymore.

On February 6-8, 2013, the BLM Wyoming BLM will convene a Resource Advisory Council meeting in Rock Springs to discuss public lands issues — including plans for wild horses– in this region of Wyoming. The public comment period will be held on Feb. 8.

The BLM’s plans for wild horses in this area include removing all the wild horses from the Wyoming Checkerboard, a 2 million acre swath of public and private land that is home to nearly half of the state’s remaining mustang populations. The devastating plan was first revealed in a scoping notice for a planned roundup in the Adobe Town and Salt Wells Creek Herd Management Areas (HMAs).

Your voice is urgently needed to speak up for Wyoming’s wild horses at this meeting and against the ranching interests who seek the total elimination of federally-protected wild horses from this vast and critically-important habitat area.

The Resource Advisory Councils (RACs) are citizen advisory panels that advise the BLM on management issues. Unfortunatley, the agency routinely stacks these RACs with anti-wild horse, pro-livestock members. At this RAC meeting, the wild horse discussion and public comment period are spread over three days.

Your attendance is most urgently needed at the Public Comment Session on Friday, February 8, 2013 at 8 a.m.

Please contact us via email if you are able to attend. We will connect you with other interested wild horse advocates, some of whom are traveling up to  Rock Springs from Denver and Colorado Springs to speak up on behalf of the mustangs.

Thank you very much, as always, for your caring and dedication to saving America’s wild horses and burros!
