“Appropriations herein made shall not be available for the destruction of healthy, unadopted, wild horses and burros in the care of the Bureau or its contractors or for the sale of wild horses and burros that results in their destruction for processing into commercial products,” the bill reads.
The inclusion of protective language for wild horses and burros is a big win made possible by the thousands of calls made by you and other advocates – thank you! -- and we’re pleased the committee has heard the voices of the American people.
This fight is not over yet, however.
We will post here when its time to start making phone calls again! Congrats on your efforts!
