One Step at a Time: Defending Horses and Burros Living on Public Lands
The U.S. Senate passed an amendment on Tuesday, voting 68-29 to prohibit the use of federal funds to kill horses for food exports. Many thanks to our concerned visitors and members who insisted that the senators take this action.
Friends of Animals will continue to keep the pressure on, mindful that slaughter is not the only danger that wild horses and burros face in their rugged western territory. As long as ranchers continue to usurp land for animal agribusiness, mustangs, burros, and other free-living animals need tireless support, and we plan to provide it.
