Say No to Wild Horse Oversight Act

Did you know Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) has introduced ominous legislation that would give Western states and Indian Tribes the option to take over the management of wild horses and burros? However, in the past, state and tribal control has meant slaughter for these magnificent animals. 

The Wild Horse Oversight Act of 2014 claims it will preserve all protections under the Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act of 1971, yet allow states to implement horse and burro management plans that address the specific needs of their own state.
