Subject: Update about 'Bring emergency shelter and shade to captive wild horses and burros ' on

Today the Adobe Town - Salt Wells Roundup (Wyoming) has captured 668 native free roaming wild horses and 3 have died so far. A foal was trampled to death in a trap and killed . . .
After the roundup, the cruelty continues. Wild horses are torn from their family units and forced to endure government holding facilities with no shelter in the harsh winter and no shade in the summer.
They suffer and are at risk of being sold to slaughter through middlemen "buyers" if they are over 10 years old or not adopted during 3 live or internet adoption events.
The government would like you to think they are overpopulated. Even the National Academy of Sciences reported there is "No Evidence" of overpopulation. It's all spin to strip them of their rights on the land.
We are fighting for their freedom and to return them to public land. In the meantime they need shelter from the harsh elements while they are held captive. The government isn't doing anything to help them. They don't care.
Please share the petition far and wide to help America's wild horses!
In gratitude,
Anne Novak
