Legislation to Outlaw Animal Cruelty and Torture in the U.S. Hits the Mark to Trigger House Vote

Animal Wellness Brands Logo

Animal Wellness Urges Congressional Leaders to Pass the Preventing Animal Cruelty and Torture Act Swiftly

Most people are shocked to know that the U.S. does not have a federal animal cruelty law.”

— Holly Gann, director of federal affairs at the Animal Wellness Foundation

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, September 30, 2019 / — Today, the federal Preventing Cruelty and Torture (PACT) Act, H.R. 724, reached 290 cosponsors in the U.S. House of Representatives, a measure that has been heavily lobbied for by the Animal Wellness Foundation and Animal Wellness Action. The PACT Act would establish the first federal anti-cruelty law and, with the House bill reaching 290 cosponsors, that chamber’s leaders must bring it up for a floor vote in the near term.

“Most people are shocked to know that the U.S. does not have a federal animal cruelty law,” said Holly Gann, director of federal affairs at Animal Wellness Action, and the Animal Wellness Foundation. “Enacting this bill sends a signal that our nation has no tolerance for intentional cruelty of animals.”

“The torture of innocent animals is abhorrent and should be punished to the fullest extent of the law,” said U.S. Rep. Vern Buchanan (R-FL).

"For many Americans, animal welfare is an important policy issue, and the idea of animal abuse is abhorrent,” said U.S. Rep. Ted Deutch (D-FL). “By building on state and local laws, Congress should act to guarantee a level of protection for animals across the country by criminalizing these inhumane acts. We've acted in the past to stop the horrific trend of animal abuse videos; now it's time to make the underlying acts of cruelty a crime as well."

The PACT Act, led by U.S. Reps. Ted Deutch (D-FL) and Vern Buchanan (R-FL), would prohibit extreme acts of cruelty when they occur in interstate commerce or on federal property and cracks down on widespread sexual abuse of animals (bestiality). While current federal law bans the sale of videos showing illegal acts of cruelty, it does not prohibit the underlying conduct. Law enforcement agencies and the Animal Wellness National Law Enforcement Council, have endorsed the PACT Act because of the well-documented connection between animal cruelty and violence against people, including the distinct correlation between sexual abuse of animals and children.

A Senate companion bill, S. 479, with 38 cosponsors and led by Sens. Pat Toomey (R-PA) and Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), passed the Senate by unanimous consent in the 114th and 115th Congress. But it was blocked in the House by former Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) despite the overwhelming bipartisan support in the House. The current chairman of the Judiciary Committee, Jerold Nadler (D-NY), is a cosponsor of the legislation.

Animal Wellness Action and the Animal Wellness Foundation have been actively lobbying lawmakers on Capitol Hill to support of the PACT Act, Under a new House rule, any bill that reaches 290 cosponsors can be placed on the “Consensus Calendar” for passage, a provision negotiated by the House Problems Solvers Caucus in January. The PACT Act is the second animal protection bill to hit the 290 mark this year, and one of only nine in the 116th Congress out of over 4,500 bills that have been introduced.

The Animal Wellness Foundation (Foundation) is a Los Angeles-based private charitable organization with a mission of helping animals by making veterinary care available to everyone with a pet, regardless of economic ability. We organize rescue efforts and medical services for dogs and cats in need and help homeless pets find a loving caregiver. We are advocates for getting veterinarians to the front lines of the animal welfare movement; promoting responsible pet ownership; and vaccinating animals against infectious diseases such as distemper. We also support policies that prevent animal cruelty and that alleviate suffering. We believe helping animals helps us all.

Animal Wellness Action (Action) is a Washington, D.C.-based 501(c)(4) organization with a mission of helping animals by promoting legal standards forbidding cruelty. We champion causes that alleviate the suffering of companion animals, farm animals, and wildlife. We advocate for policies to stop dogfighting and cockfighting and other forms of malicious cruelty and to confront factory farming and other systemic forms of animal exploitation. To prevent cruelty, we promote enacting good public policies and we work to enforce those policies. To enact good laws, we must elect good lawmakers, and that’s why we remind voters which candidates care about our issues and which ones don’t. We believe helping animals helps us all.

Research Reveals True Extent of Wages Squeeze

Burning Money

People don’t have money to burn

Teeth money

Workers Missing Meals Because Of Low Wages

two teeth

It’s hard not having enough for your dinner

Over the last 12 months, 1 in 5 workers have dodged mealtimes

This is a completely unacceptable situation. Wages are simply not keeping step with living costs and job insecurity is punishing the poorest in our society.”

— Colin Mahoney

COVENTRY, UNITED KINGDOM, September 30, 2019 / — A recent piece of research by the Trades Union Congress has revealed that a shocking number of workers have been skipping meals in order to save money.

Over the last 12 months, 1 in 5 workers have dodged mealtimes and almost a fifth have kept their heating switched off because they were unable to pay for it.

The general secretary of the Workers’ Union, Colin Mahoney, who has been campaigning on this issue for the past 6 months, said: “This is a completely unacceptable situation. Wages are simply not keeping step with living costs and job insecurity is punishing the poorest in our society. It’s the 21st century, and nobody should be going hungry in a rich country like this. The Workers’ Union is sending a very strong message that MPs need to stop messing around with Brexit and focus on the things that matter to British workers: jobs, fair pay and an end to the squeeze on living standards.”

Ramjohn focuses on practical applications of microalgae for action to reverse Climate Change while illustrating microalgae's history in terraforming our planet.

While corresponding and editing with David, I personally learned so much about algae as a natural resource to be nurtured and utilized to help create more meaningful climate action”

— Mary Kurek, Founder/Publisher "The Introducer Magazine"

LA GRANGE, TEXAS, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, September 29, 2019 / — AlgEternal Technologies’ CEO, David Ramjohn’s article titled “Microalgae and Climate Change” is featured in the 16th Edition of The Introducer Magazine, October 2019. This edition of The Introducer is focused on The Business of Saving our Planet: Climate Change & Circular Economy and is being released during Climate Week 2019 while these subjects are on everyone’s mind.

Ramjohn’s expertise in the application of microalgae to solving critical environmental challenges facing humankind was sought out specifically for his views on potential practical solutions to Climate Change. "As we were starting to put together what we knew was going to be an important edition of the magazine, we began looking for experts in diverse fields and globally who could be featured,” said Mary Kurek, Founder/Publisher, The Introducer Magazine. Kurek continued, “About one day before a close member of my network in Texas pointed me toward David Ramjohn as someone I should feature, I found David and had already started communication.”

Ramjohn’s vision for algae has been internalized into the Vision and Mission Statements he created for AlgEternal, which state: “AlgEternal Technologies, LLC will reduce human dependence on fossil hydrocarbons and create sustainable economic activity resulting in a healthier planet and improved quality of life for all, by harnessing the power of the PLANET’S PRIMARY PRODUCERS—ALGAE” and “AlgEternal Technologies, LLC will systematically apply microalgae as THE SUSTAINABLE INTEGRATED SOLUTION to the major existing and emerging issues facing our species, faster, more efficiently, and with greater environmental, social, and economic benefits”, respectively. Ramjohn focuses on finding practical applications with business viability that drive an economic model built on sustainable platforms that do not impair the environment.

In general, Ramjohn believes that algae represent the best opportunity for humans to keep Earth hospitable to humans. On arguably the single greatest challenge to keeping Earth hospitable, i.e. Climate Change, Ramjohn believes that microalgae can mitigate or reverse Climate Change by restoring ecosystem function and services. One major ecosystem microalgae can restore is soil; microalgae can repair this critical planetary carbon sink, facilitating healthy trees, crops, and other plants while avoiding carbon emissions from agriculture and land use. In addition, algae function very effectively in carbon capture and use from high carbon-emitting industries such as power generation, cement manufacturing, chemicals manufacturing. “Aside from these direct applications, we can use algae in so many ways to combat Global Warming, which drives Climate Change,” says Ramjohn; “for example, if we can replace protein from meat with protein from algae, then we can transition away from industrial meat production, which contributes greatly to greenhouse gas emissions such as methane from cows, and we can avoid using the significant resources currently used for meat production.”

“While corresponding and editing with David, I personally learned so much about algae as a natural resource to be nurtured and utilized to help create more meaningful climate action,” said Mary Kurek of their interaction; “his work and dedication as an impact solution provider makes for a perfect fit with The Introducer magazine edition on The Business of Saving our Planet: Climate Change & Circular Economy. What we will continue to learn from David as we further develop our networking relationship via The Frontrunners League will amplify the work of others in impact spaces."

"I hope that readers will be inspired to learn more about these amazing microorganisms to whom we owe so much," says Ramjohn; "but we cannot rely only on their ability to repair the damage we have done, we must also adopt circular economic models, change our patterns of production and consumption, and exercise our collective power to demand responsible and effective climate action from our elected officials and those with the means to effect necessary and sustainable change."

AlgEternal Technologies is an early stage company with patented technology for growing microalgae at scale. Operating as a Conscious Capitalism Company, focused on demonstrating the application of microalgae to solving significant human challenges such as: sustainable agriculture; water, air and soil pollution; and climate change. AlgEternal believes that the algae industry is critical to sustainable, ecocentric, circular economic activity while keeping planet Earth hospitable to humans.

IPCC Report Panelists

Dr. Michael Oppenheimer, IPCC Author and Albert G. Milbank Professor of Geosciences and International Affairs at Princeton’s Woodrow Wilson School

No Silver Lining Without Dramatic Changes in Policy on a Global Scale

You can hear movements within receding glaciers when you stand on them, and these desperate murmurings should not be witnessed idly. Nature is giving us a very clear message.”

— Rt. Hon. Katrín Jakobsdótti, Prime Minister of Iceland

NEW YORK, NY, USA, September 28, 2019 / — The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (“IPCC”) Special Report on the Ocean and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate (“the report”) made international headlines when it was released Wednesday at 5 am EST. The report reveals the extent to which climate change has already affected the world’s oceans and the cryosphere, which is defined in the report as “the components of the Earth System at and below the land and ocean surface that are frozen, including snow cover, glaciers, ice sheet, ice shelves, icebergs, sea ice, lake ice, river ice, permafrost, and seasonally frozen ground.” The report also provided myriad projections that reveal the probable effects on the oceans and the cryosphere if the world’s nations either fail to or fulfill their duties as established by the 2016 Paris Climate Agreement—namely, to keep the average global temperature increase to well below 2 ̊C above pre-industrial levels.

The report is clear: Failure to meet the bar set by the Paris Agreements will be catastrophic for humanity, as well as species that lack the ability to quickly adapt to dramatic changes in their ecosystem.

To better understand the report, three of its authors—Dr. Michael Oppenheimer, Dr. Ben Orlove, and Dr. Robert DeConto—as well as two additional scientists, Dr. R. Max Holmes and Dr. Jennifer Francis, to speak before an audience at The Explorers Club on Wednesday evening. Following presentations by Drs. Oppenheimer, Orlove, DeConto, and Holmes, Dr. Francis joined the other four scientists on stage for a panel discussion that was moderated by host Dr. Philip Duffy, the Director of the Woods Hole Research Center and a former White House senior advisor on climate and science in the Obama administration. The event was part of The Explorers Club’s week of programming based around Climate Week.

The evening’s event began with opening statements from the Rt. Hon. Katrín Jakobsdótti, the Prime Minister of Iceland, who spoke passionately about not only the report, but some of the more salient effects of climate change, particularly how glaciers are disappearing from Iceland. She also spoke about climate change’s effects of the ocean waters surrounding her homeland. “The impact on the ocean is less visible, but no less profound,” she said, before relaying reports from several Icelandic fisherman, who claim to be seeing new species of fish that have migrated north because of warming waters. In her closing statements, she noted that you can hear movements within receding glaciers when you stand on them, and that these desperate murmurings should not be witnessed idly. “Nature is giving us a very clear message,” Ms. Jakobsdótti concluded.

Following the opening statement by Ms. Jakobsdótti, Monica Dean, a Senior Associate with the United Nations Foundation who works on Energy, Climate, and the Environment, provided the audience with some preliminary information about the immense scope of the research required to produce the report, describing it as “the most ambitious report cycle the IPCC has ever undertaken its 30-year history.” To draft the report, Ms. Dean said it required 104 authors from 36 countries, who worked for two years and assessed over “6,000 different sources of literature” and reviewed “31,000 government and expert comments.” After completing the report, the authors spent five days with delegates from 195 countries to approve a 42-page summary for policymakers.

The first of the presenters, Dr. Ben Orlove, was one of the lead authors for the report’s section on mountains. He described how mountain glaciers in low- and mid-latitudes of the Earth are shrinking due to warmer air temperatures. Dr. Orlove also detailed how these glaciers and the usual runoff they produce from seasonal thawing contribute to rivers that are then used as a water source for peoples living in high altitudes. Increased runoffs due to warming temperatures, however, can lead to damaging floods and landslides. Should the process of deglaciation progress more rapidly, the results will not only be more flooding and more landslides, but the eventual disappearance of the glaciers. This will devastate communities in proximity to these rivers by severely restricting their water sources. Warming temperatures may also mean less snow in mountain regions, further denuding water sources during the spring thaw and threatening local economies, especially if they are based on agriculture or tourism.

Dr. Orlove added that the disappearance of glaciers has altered the topography of mountainous regions, thereby making some areas impossible to traverse. This can have a cultural—as well as an economic and environmental—impact. Many UNESCO World Heritage Sites and mountains that are sacred to mountain cultures may be damaged or become inaccessible. France’s Mount Blanc, for example, may cease to be white.

The next presenter, Dr. Rob DeConto, was one of the lead authors for the report’s section on polar regions. Dr. DeConto presented a sobering look into how climate change is affecting glaciers in the Earth’s polar regions. He focused most of his attention on a series of graphs included in the report (see page 6 of the summary) that paint a picture of two vastly different scenarios.

In one, we continue on our current trajectory. If we follow this path, changes will become more pronounced in the future as the forces contributing to climate change compound and the effects (temperatures, sea acidification, ocean heat waves, etc.) become exponential in nature. Dr. DeConto, an expert on ice sheet dynamics, also noted that sea level rise could exceed previous projections because of changing dynamics within the Antarctic ice sheet system. Scientists did not fully understand the dynamics of this system until relatively recently. However, Dr. DeConto said the report shows that “Antarctica has the potential to contribute much more to sea level than we were thinking just five years ago.” Particularly after 2100, this could mean several meters in sea level rise. This will have a tremendous impact on existing coastal communities, especially small island nations.

The other path, which is more likely if we comply with the conditions of the Paris Agreement, shows these negative trends slowing or stopping entirely. In attempting to strike an optimistic tone, Dr. DeConto concluded, saying, “Even though there is going to be an ongoing increase in sea levels…you don’t turn the ice sheets around in decades or even centuries, but you can see it’s a much, much rosier picture with perhaps less than a meter of sea level rise even centuries out into the future, and that’s something that I think we can all probably deal with and tolerate.”

Dr. Michael Oppenheimer, the next presenter, was one of the lead authors for the report’s section on sea level rise. Dr. Oppenheimer opened his remarks with a call for hope, but tempered this by admitting that his initial response to the findings was, “There’s a lot for us to do.” This especially pertains to adaptions and emissions reductions that can mitigate the effects and acceleration of sea level rise. Unfortunately, he noted that, “We’ve fallen further and further behind.”

Dr. Oppenheimer focused on a future in which sea levels continue to rise unabated. In this scenario, storm surges “will be riding on top of a higher sea level, so…the storm surge goes further inland.” Consequently, flooding in coastal areas becomes more common and so-called 100-year weather events become relatively common occurrences. By 2050, in many places around the world (including the East Coast of the United States), these storms may become annual events. Without adaptations and attempts to curb emissions, many coastal areas and small island nations will cease to be inhabitable without tremendous amounts of capital to either rebuild structures to accommodate frequent flooding or create barrier systems that keep sea water out.

The final presenter, Dr. Holmes, is a Senior Scientist and Deputy Director at the Woods Hole Research Center. Dr. Holmes spoke about the section of the report that focused on permafrost. “Permafrost is frozen ground,” he said. “It’s technically defined as ground that’s at or below the freezing point of water for two or more years consecutively, but in practice it’s ground that’s been frozen for hundreds or thousands or tens of thousands of years.” Permafrost can be found underneath approximately 25 percent of the land area in the northern hemisphere.

Dr. Holmes said that as much as 70 percent of the near-surface permafrost in this region may be lost by 2100 due to rising air temperatures. On top of potentially damaging animals and people who rely on ecosystems underlaid by permafrost, thawing permafrost may release a great deal of carbon into the atmosphere, thereby contributing even more to climate change. To put into context just how much carbon is locked in the artic, Dr. Holmes explained that there are currently 850 billion tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere; that there is approximately 500 billion tons of carbon stored in the vegetation around the world; and that there is 1,200 billion tons in existing fossil fuel reserves. In permafrost, “the thing that doesn’t get much attention…there is around 1,500 billion tons of carbon,” he said.

As permafrost thaws, bacteria begin to consume the organic matter that both contains the carbon and has been frozen, thereby releasing both CO2 and methane into the atmosphere. By 2100, Dr. Holmes said the report estimates that, in the best-case scenario, this will translate into “tens of billions of tons of carbon released.” If we do not act, he said, “We’re talking something over one hundred billion tons.”

The subsequent discussion began with a remark by Dr. Francis that seemed to capture the mood of the audience: “Thanks everyone for all that terrible news.” She added that, though the report does paint a ominous picture of the future if we fail to act, “One of the things this report does really well, and one of the reasons it’s so important, is because it’s really highlighting the changes that are going in two really important parts of the climate system: the oceans and the polar regions.”

Dr. Francis then emphasized that there is a vicious cycle in these parts of the climate system, wherein phenomena associated with global warming amplify one another. She used the melting of arctic sea ice as an example: “So far, we’ve seen the artic sea ice disappear by 75 percent in only 40 years.” As temperatures warm, more sea ice melts; as more sea ice melts, less solar energy is reflected back into space and is instead absorbed by the ocean; as the ocean absorbs more of the sun’s energy, temperatures warm; and so on, ad infinitum. According to Dr. Francis, this positive feedback loop “is causing the arctic to warm two to three times faster than just about anywhere else on the planet.” Additionally, this contributes to the thawing of permafrost and the melting of glaciers, particularly in Greenland.

Following the discussion, Mr. Julio Cordano, Chile’s Deputy Lead Negotiator for Climate, provided closing remarks. He noted that, while there needs to be more conversations between nations to address climate change, there is also a narrow window of opportunity. In the near future, he hopes that “we will be able to say we have a very substantial alliance of countries that are willing to increase their ambition and hopefully address the enormous amount of work that we need to do.”
This tone of conditional confidence in humanity’s ability to save itself from its own myopia had resonated among all speakers throughout the night. While the report makes clear that the effects of climate change will be severe if humanity does not work to reduce emissions, each of the scientists emphasized that adhering to the goals of the Paris Agreement will lead to significantly less grim results.

Dr. Oppenheimer described himself as an optimist in his opening remarks, adding: “It doesn’t pay to be paralyzed by gloom and doom.”

“We have the tools at our disposal,” he later added.

Meanwhile, Dr. Orlove claimed: “There’s twice as much glacier loss between now and 2100 with high emissions as there is with low emissions.”

Even Dr. DeConto expressed a hopeful tone while pointing to the two potential trajectories for the Earth’s oceans. Highlighting the projection that does not portend imminent doom, he said, “There’s still a lot of good news in this story.”

Dr. Holmes took a bolder approach: “Best case scenario is a hell of a lot better than the worst case scenario.”

Baxt Ingui Architects Partner Issues Call to Climate Action

Passive House Accelerator's mission is to bring people together to share projects, collaborate on ideas and promote Passive House as part of the climate change solution and a call to climate action.”

— Michael Inqui, Baxt Ingui and Passive House Accelerator

NEW YORK, NY, USA, September 27, 2019 / — The New York chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIANY) held a panel discussion on historic preservation and carbon reduction yesterday evening at the Center for Architecture in Lower Manhattan. The event was organized by the AIANY Historic Buildings Committee and the AIANY Committee on the Environment. Panelists included Michael Ingui, a Partner at Baxt Ingui Architects P.C.; Jeff Murphy, a Partner at Murphy Burnham & Buttrick; Cory Trembath Rouillard, an Associate Partner at Jan Hird Pokorny Associates; and Paula Zimin, the Director for Sustainable Building Services at Steven Winter Associates. The discussion was moderated by Scott Henson, the Principal for Scott Henson Architect.

The goal of the event was to explore the intersection of sustainability and preservation, as it is often believed that the two are anathema. However, with the passage of the Climate Mobilization Act, owners of older buildings in New York City will need to find a way to comply with stricter efficiency standards or face steep fines.

While it is often believed that such retrofits are either prohibitively expensive or cannot be done without compromising the historical integrity of the structure, this is not the case when owners make improvements that utilize the Passive House methodology. Ingui was ardent about both points in his presentation, showing clear evidence that structures that comply with Passive House standards are indistinguishable from typical homes, even if these homes are designated or protected historic landmarks.

“Many of our projects, particularly in neighborhoods like Brooklyn Heights and Park Slope, are in historic districts,” Ingui said. “Passive House does not necessarily affect the aesthetic of building fenestration or facades. It’s also affordable. True, it increases retrofit costs by somewhere in the ballpark of five percent, but it ends up paying for itself in just a few years through energy savings.”

A home that is built to the Passive House standard is extremely well sealed and well insulated, thereby reducing homeowners’ cooling and heating needs by between 80 percent and 90 percent. Certified Passive House buildings oftentimes only use their heat for a few days in the winter, even in New York City.

Because it is Climate Week and because Passive House has the potential to significantly improve efficiency and reduce building emissions, Ingui asked those in attendance last night to take a pledge to be more supportive of Passive House. One way that architects can do so is to join Passive House Accelerator, a site Ingui launched earlier this year and for which he has written several articles.

“The goal with Passive House Accelerator is to bring people together and to use Passive House as one part of the solution to climate change,” Ingui said. “Passive House Accelerator is a way for architects, designers, and contractors to learn about events, share their projects, and collaborate on ideas that can promote the net zero and Passive House movements. We have the tools at our disposal—it’s time we start using them.”

U.S. Senate Committee Funds Cattlemen’s Mass Mustang Roundup & Incarceration to Tune of $35 Million

This scheme is the biggest threat to wild horses and burros in the West in decades, and the American taxpayer is going to finance the whole shebang.”

— Marty Irby, executive director at Animal Wellness Action

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, September 26, 2019 / — Today, the Senate Appropriations Committee passed a Fiscal Year 2020 spending bill that includes a shocking $35 million in funding to implement a potentially catastrophic mass mustang roundup proposal promoted by the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, the American Farm Bureau Federation, the so-called “American Mustang Foundation” and other agribusiness lobbying groups and, shockingly, the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), the ASPCA, and Return to Freedom, a sanctuary.

The proposal, misleadingly dubbed a “Path Forward for Wild Horse and Burro Management,” will accelerate the removal (by helicopter roundup) of wild mustangs from public lands and allow for inhumane management methods, such as cruel surgeries to sterilize wild mares by ripping out their ovaries. Although billed as a “non-lethal plan,” the proposal is a poorly disguised path to slaughter. It could increase the number of horses to 150,000 maintained in captivity at taxpayer expense with no guarantee of funding for their long-term care.

“The misguided proposal is a road to destruction for America's wild free-roaming horse and burro herds,” said Suzanne Roy, Executive Director of the American Wild Horse Campaign. “It’s a sweeping betrayal of America’s wild herds by the nation’s largest animal welfare groups. This is a $35 million-dollar giveaway to the commercial livestock industry, which covets the public lands where wild horses roam. We’re shocked that the Senate has appropriated taxpayer funds to perpetuate a failed system of roundup wand removal when humane fiscally responsible solutions are available.”

“This scheme is the biggest threat to wild horses and burros in the West in decades, and the American taxpayer is going to finance the whole shebang” said Marty Irby, executive director at Animal Wellness Action and a lifelong horseman. “If this ghastly plan is implemented, we'll see massive round-ups, swelling captive wild horse populations, and jubilation from cattlemen's associations that secured political cover from the Humane Society of the U.S., Humane Society Legislative Fund, and ASPCA for their long-time aspiration to secure a government-funded wild horse depopulation program."

“We might as well call this what it is: “The Path Backward” or “The Path to Extinction,” since they’re reducing wild horses to the number that existed in 1971," stated Ginger Kathrens, Director of The Cloud Foundation. “That extinction-level number is what caused Congress to unanimously pass the Wild Horse and Burro Act. This 'plan' will rip tens of thousands of horses and burros from their dedicated land and their families at catastrophic cost to the American taxpayer…billions of dollars spent to incarcerate them in cramped corrals for the rest of their lives, except for the few that are adopted. Why? So private livestock interests, (subsidized by the BLM through your tax dollars), can run cattle on public lands. It's time for the American people to stand up and say, 'No more. Not with my tax dollars. There are better programs to spend these billions of dollars on than this.'"

The BLM currently spends 73% of its budget to roundup and remove horses from the public lands and deal with them once removed; zero percent of the budget is spent to implement humane management of horses on the range with birth control. Nothing in the Senate bill would prevent the BLM from spending the entire $35 million to round up and warehouse wild horses and continue the “business as usual” practices that the National Academy of Science called “expensive and unproductive for the BLM and the public it serves.” The BLM could also use the funds to implement gruesome sterilization surgeries on wild mares in which their ovaries are ripped out in an archaic procedure used in the livestock industry.

The American Wild Horse Campaign (AWHC) is the nation’s leading wild horse protection organization, with more than 700,000 supporters and followers nationwide. AWHC is dedicated to preserving the American wild horse and burros in viable, free-roaming herds for generations to come, as part of our national heritage. In addition to advocating for protection and preservation of America’s wild herds, AWHC implements the largest wild horse fertility control program in the world through a partnership with the State of Nevada for wild horses that live in the Virginia Range near Reno.

Animal Wellness Action (AWA) is a Washington, D.C.-based 501(c)(4) organization with a mission of helping animals by promoting legal standards forbidding cruelty. We champion causes that alleviate the suffering of companion animals, farm animals, and wildlife. We advocate for policies to stop dogfighting and cockfighting and other forms of malicious cruelty and to confront factory farming and other systemic forms of animal exploitation. To prevent cruelty, we promote enacting good public policies and we work to enforce those policies. To enact good laws, we must elect good lawmakers, and that’s why we remind voters which candidates care about our issues and which ones don’t. We believe helping animals helps us all.

The Cloud Foundation (TCF) is a Colorado 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation, that grew out of Executive Director Ginger Kathrens' knowledge and fear for wild horses in the West. TCF works to educate the public about the natural free-roaming behavior and social structure of wild horses and the threats to wild horse and burro society, to encourage the public to speak out for their protection on their home ranges and to support only humane management measures. Kathrens served as the Humane Advisor on BLM’s National Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Board.

Key components of the “controversial and dangerous” cattlemen’s proposal includes:
● Unprecedented mass wild horse and burro roundups removals from public lands 130,000 wild horses and burros (more than exist today in the wild) targeted for removal over 10 years.
● Reduction of wild herds to 27,000 animals — the number that existed in 1971 when Congress passed a law to protect the West’s iconic wild horses and burros because they were “fast disappearing from the American scene.”
● Use of “fertility control” of 90% of the horses and burros who remain on the range. The language would allow for surgical sterilization of wild horses via invasive methods such as “ovariectomy via colpotomy” surgery on wild mares. The BLM is currently pursuing this method despite the National Academy of Sciences’ warning that the procedure is “inadvisable for field application” due to the risk of bleeding and infection.
● Near tripling of the population of wild horses incarcerated at taxpayer expense, with no long-term guarantee of funding to ensure their safety.
● Unprecedented manipulation of wild herds through sex ratio skewing to achieve populations comprised as 70% stallions and 30% mares, which will cause extreme social disruption and aggression on the range.

Humane solutions preferred by AWHC, AWA, and TCF include:
● Adjusting the BLM’s current population limits (AMLs) to allow larger, more viable wild horse and burro herds and fairer resource allocation on designated public lands habitat.
● Prioritizing PZP fertility control over roundups and not waiting until AML is reached before beginning fertility control programs.
● Funding better management and stewardship of range via projects like water restoration/development that allow horses to better utilize habitat and remain in the wild.
● Livestock grazing buyouts/retirement in wild horse areas. (Just 17% of BLM land grazed by livestock is also occupied by wild horses and burros.)
● Protecting predators like mountain lions, which can and do help naturally control wild horse and burro populations when they are not eliminated by hunting and the federal predator damage control program, which kills wildlife for the benefit of the agricultural industry.
