The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, is reminding everyone that comments addressed to The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), the agency that oversees our country’s wild horses and burros, are due by today, March 30, 2011, on a plan that it views as a "new direction" for wild horse management.
A respresentative of the organization states that "Since the BLM continues to ignore the public and members of Congress who want to insure the well-being of our wild horses and burros, we’re asking you to weigh in on its proposal and make it very clear what the agency should and should not be doing."
"We at the ASPCA are concerned that the BLM’s proposed changes do not go nearly far enough. Its “strategy” continues to focus on the removal of wild horses from public lands, rather than restoring the millions of acres that should be theirs. Moreover, the BLM’s plan continues to fall short in not providing adequate transparency during roundups and not using the most humane methods possible. These are but some of the important reasons we need you to raise your voices during this brief period when the BLM is inviting public comment."
