Please help stop the Department of Interior’s Bureau of Land Management plans to perform ovarietomies on wild mares.

Despite three successful lawsuits stopping this procedure, two universities pulling out, and enormous public outcry, BLM still plans on moving forward with its plans to rip the ovaries out of mares.
Please stand with us to tell BLM “NO!”. Send the linked sign-on letter to your veterinarian. Most have an email address listed on their website. The more signatures we have, the more influence.
No caring person wants to see these mares go through this torturous procedure with little in the way of aftercare. Together, we can tell the BLM that scores of licensed veterinarians do NOT endorse this cruel procedure.
We have 47 signatures already, our goal is to have 100 by Oct. 25th, just 10 days away. We will then present it to the BLM Advisory Board in Washington, D.C. On October 30th.

Dear Dr. XX
I’m a client of your practice, you might remember my pets (insert names here). I’m also an advocate for America’s wild horses and burros.
You might not be aware, but the Bureau of Land Management is preparing to perform a sterilization procedure on wild mares, with the intent of eventually taking it into the field. Many reputable equine veterinarians advise strongly against this procedure due to the non-sterile environment, risk of infection, colic and even evisceration.
I’m asking you to please take a moment to read the letter linked HERE and add your name to the long list of veterinarians who oppose this procedure.
Thank you for your time,
