Update Nov. 4, 2009: Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA), long a supporter of the horses, will join the call for BLM to stop the gathers, the roundups and removals, of wild horses and burros!
Please write or call your U.S. representative and senators and urge themto contact Sen. Landrieu to join in this effort to put in place a moratorium to stop the gathers, the roundups and removals pending Congressional action on the future management of the wild horses and burros.  Ginger Kathrens of Cloud Foundation, explains:  
"[Sen. Landrieu's] letter will go to BLM Director Bob Abbey requesting an IMMEDIATE MORATORIUM on the 2009 roundups which call for removing nearly 4,000 horses of perhaps only 15,000 remaining on their range. She'd like to have other Senators and [Representatives] sign on before this letter goes out later this week. 
"If they would be willing to sign on to the letter calling for a moratorium please let me know and have them call Elizabeth Craddock at Senator Landrieu's office at 202-224-5824 or".
Read Animal Law Coalition's reports below for more information on efforts to stop the roundups and removals and get Congress to conduct an investigation or hold a hearing on BLM's management of the wild horses and burros program and make decisions about their future.
