Please join the animal protection community in opposing the appointment of Callie Hendrickson to the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) National Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Board. Ms. Hendrickson is an ardent proponent of the slaughter of wild horses and has signaled her support for United Horsemen, which advocates horse slaughter for human consumption.

Appointments to the National Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Board are made by the secretary of the interior and the BLM staff. Please let them – as well as your U.S. senators and representative – know that Ms. Hendrickson does not represent the public interest and that Interior Secretary Ken Salazar needs to find another candidate who truly represents the view of the majority of the American people.
