|Action Alert Reminder: March 1st
Wild Horse & Burro Call-in Day
Dear Wild Horse and Burro Defenders;
I know many of you are just as worried as I am about the future of our wild horses and burros and the most recent appointment of another pro-slaughter person to the BLM National Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Board by Secretary of the Interior, Ken Salazar.
This is just a reminder to call in to protest the appointment of Callie Hendrickson to the Board on March 1st. Shockingly, she has been appointed to represent the General Public. If you missed our last newsletter, read more about Callie here.
Here is some clarification on exactly what to do when you call:
Please remember to be polite when you deliver your message.
The number to call (below) is the main number for the Dept. of Interior. Please politely ask the person who answers the phone to be transferred to the Secretary’s office.
The person who answers in the Secretary’s office will be the one you can speak with regarding Ms. Hendrickson.
They may try offering you an 866 number. Say no. This is a BLM number and you want to register your complaint with the Secretary. (After all, he made the appointment of this pro-slaughter, anti-wild horse person to represent us!)
Ask the Secretary to rescind Hendrickson’s appointment immediately. She does not and should not represent the views of the vast majority of Americans.
Number to call: (202) 208-3100 (main DOI number)
Number to fax: (202) 208-6956 (Attn: Secretary of the Interior’s Office)
Address to email: firstname.lastname@example.org

I hope you will join us in this effort to protect our wild horses still roaming free and those held captive.
