First it’s National Call in day to protest the appointment of Calli Hendricksen to the Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Board.
Callie has been appointed to fill the “public” seat on the Board. Callie is vocally pro-slaughter. Not only for our domestics, but she has been very vocal in the “opinion” that slaughter is appropriate for wild horses. This view is not representative of the majority of Americans that feel (as we always have) that eating horse us “un-American.”
She is also a member of an organization that has pushed to zero out areas as she represents livestock interests.
Callie is not an appropriate “public” representative to the board. Livestock and Wildlife interests are already represented.
You can find call in info on RT’s blog: http://rtfitchauthor.com/2012/03/01/today-national-wild-horse-and-burro-call-in-protest-to-cull-callie-from-blm-advisory-board/
ALSO” today is the last day to get comments in on the EIS for Mt. Hope. Ask that appropriate studies be done to determine impacts to wild horses and appropriate mitigation for their welfare take place. The current EIS for the project does not appropriately take into account the already fragile nature of the horses in that area.
PLEASE use the email here or mail your comments today! http://wildhorseeducation.org/2012/02/28/action-urgent-march-1-deadline-mt-hope/
