Every year, the federal government uses low flying helicopters to stampede thousands of wild horses into pens and clear them off public lands so that commercial interests can turn a profit.
These round ups are far below the standard of humane treatment of animals that most Americans will tolerate, yet these tactics have been used for decades far out of public view. As a consequence, there are now more wild horses stockpiled in government holding facilities than live free in the wild. If we don’t act to stop these cruel practices, wild horses will soon be gone forever.
Join us in demanding the federal government embrace safe and effective alternatives like fertility control that keep wild horses in the wild where they belong.
The American Wild Horses Preservation Campaign thanks our founding organization and key sponsors for their important role in our work to protect America's wild horses:
