Nevada's Bureau of Land Management plans to herd a large group of mustangs out of their peaceful habitat—a practice that is responsible for the senseless injuries and deaths of thousands of these wild and beautiful creatures.

You can help the horses remain in their natural environment. Tell the BLM to put an end to their roundups, allowing the horses to run free where they belong.

Dear Bob Abbey,

As a concerned citizen, I am writing to inform you of my outrage at the Bureau of Land Management's horse roundups in Nevada. The BLM has claimed that these roundups are necessary to sustainably manage the mustang population and protect the environment. However, the herding you are doing in the Twin Peaks area is inhumane and cruel.

Your agency's harrowing tactics unnecessarily injure and kill innocent mustangs each time you conduct a roundup, and with record-low mustang adoption rates, the horses that are captured face a lifetime of confinement in overcrowded shelters.

It's your job as experts in this industry to develop population control methods that do not directly harm living animals. Regulating the 3-4 million grazing cattle and sheep on BLM lands would be more productive than essentially jailing some of our 27,000 remaining mustangs for life. Effective and humane techniques, such as a contraceptive PZP vaccine, are available and proven options.

Please put these noble animals first, and put an end to unnecessary and harmful roundups. The Twin Peaks mustangs should remain in their rightful habitat.

Thank you for your time.
