BLM to Slaughter "Cloud" and Pryor Mountain Mustang Herd
If any of you watched the PBS special on mustangs you probably know
who Cloud is
If you don't, Cloud is a rare palomino mustang. He has a large herd
and has passed on his coloring to some of his colts and fillies.
Sadly, the BLM has decided that Cloud and his herd are destroying the
land and they must take "drastic measures". These drastic measures
are euthanizing Cloud and his herd. Instead of holding an auction or
moving them to other conserved land they and going to euthanize them
on July 11th, 2008. Please help stop them by signing this petition.

The BLM is making a big mistake in planning to euthanize Cloud and
his herd. With all due respect, this is a lazy attempt to fix a
perceived problem (a governmental-type response). I believe that
other measures can be taken, including but not limited to relocation
of the herd. I question whether these horses are destroying the land
or have simply become inconvenient for the BLM. Please reconsider
your choices and be thinking in terms of nature as a whole, horses
and humans coexisting on the planet, not just about human greed and
inconsistent and drastic measures as quick fixes. The balance and
diversity on the planet is being lost by human destruction due to a
lack of knowledge or concern. Thank you.
