I hope that everyone notes this same story is being played out all over the world.  The petition to stop the culling of the less than 1,000 wild horses remaining in Alberta, Canada needs signatures.  We’re asking our readers to help out and sign this:


It is believed that there are blood lines in the wild horses, dating back to the Spanish Barb, or even ancient blood lines.  If those rare blood lines are removed indiscriminately in a cull, they will be lost forever.  Canada and the world will lose a unique heritage animal.  Biologists, photographers, tourists and future generations will lose the opportunity to study and experience these rare wild horses (often referred to as Wildies).

Please join our effort to keep the DEFUNDING in the Ag budget!

The defunding language was removed from the Ag Budget in 2011 in a sneaky move on the part of Sen Blunt, Sen Kohl and Rep Kingston. We are faced with equine slaughter operations opening on US soil for the first time in 6 years because of this deceptive move. We do NOT want that language removed this time! The American Taxpayer is already dealing with poor inspections of our meat due to the budget cuts. We do not want the USDA inspecting meat that will not be used in the American food supply!

But THIS time We The People are aware that the Ag Appropriations Conference will be held shortly. The House and Senate Bills are identical and therefore do not need to be reconciled! They are IDENTICAL! It is undemocratic to pull out this language!

Our horses are unfit for human consumption, and we do not want our tax dollars funding USDA inspections at the tune of $400k per plant, per year. 80% of Americans are opposed to equine slaughter.

Please sign and share this TIME SENSITIVE petition! We only have a few days!
