US House Moves to Stop Wild Horse Slaughter--URGENT ACTION NEEDED TODAY!

(hot from the mailbox)

May 16, 2006

Dear Humanitarian:

The US House of Representatives is again poised to vote on an amendment introduced by Representative Nick Rahall (D-WV) to stop the brutal slaughter of America's wild horses for human consumption in foreign countries. An identical measure sponsored by Mr. Rahall last year passed overwhelmingly in the House, but was blocked at the last minute in the Senate by Senator Conrad Burns (R-MT). More information about the House vote and the tragic plight of our wild horses is available at www.saplonline.org/w_horses.htm.

The House will consider the measure during the week of May 15 (most likely on Thursday, May 18), so your immediate assistance is critical.
