By AMERICAN WILD HORSE PRESERVATION
January 29, 2016
Now the agency wants to perform crude, inhumane and archaic abortion/sterilization experiments on our treasured wild horses that are being kept in an Oregon holding facility.
Once majestic, wild and free, the mares will be subjected to an invasive and painful procedure called "ovariectomy via colpotomy," in which a veterinarian places his arm into a mare's vaginal cavity, manually locates the ovaries and rips them out using a rod-like device with a chain on the end.
The procedure will cause mares in the early and possibly mid-stages of pregnancy to abort their fetuses, and carries a significant risk of pain, hemorrhage and evisceration (intestines coming through the incision).
After the surgery, the BLM intends to turn the mares back out into their corrals, with open incisions and none of the post-operative care that is required for any domestic mares who undergo this painful, surgically-risky and potentially life-threatening procedure.
Please help us demonstrate overwhelming public opposition to this grotesque plan by taking action and oppose BLM's Barbaric Sterilization Experiments on Captured Wild Mares.
