September 2009

WASHINGTON, DC - Americans appeared on Capitol Hill on Tuesday, September 29th, to support legislation that will reinstate the wishes of the American people that were voiced decades ago. In 1971, an unprecedented public outcry by Americans citizens moved Congress to unanimously pass the Wild Free-Roaming Horse and Burro Act, granting federal protection to America's wild horses and burros as living symbols of the historic and pioneer spirit of the West that contribute to the diversity of life forms within the Nation and enrich the lives of the American people.
