Jump on Board the Pony Express- Help Stop the Cruel Rounding Up of America's Wild Mustangs and Burros

Madeleine Pickens, an activist for American's wild mustangs and burros, is on a mission. She is trying to collect 20,000 letters for her cause by September 1st (which is coming soon, so act now!)- which she will then hand deliver to Washington DC {eventually to President Barack Obama, Ken Salazar (Secretary of the Interior), Robert V. Abbey (a director)} on the back of one of her rescued mustangs, called Pony Express. The officials can't delete emails or unplug phones anymore! But if some of you are wondering just why Madeleine wants to stop this, read this excerpt from her website:

"For the millions of people who are unaware of the roundup process, here it is: The Bureau of Land Management, a branch of the Department of the Interior, has scheduled the removal of America’s wild horses and are attempting to change the grazing rights to be cattle only on the BLM owned land, which leave our wild horses homeless. 100 years ago there were 2 million horses. Now, because of these roundups, there are only 30,000 left. They contract low-flying helicopters to taunt and scare the mustangs, separating them from their families, and eventually coerced into tiny pens. The mustangs are then taken off to holding facilities where they no longer have room to roam anymore. They will be moved to a short-term holding facility for up to three years if not adopted out or sold to a buyer that intends on using the wild horse for slaughter."
