Please join Lady Freethinker for a week of action to urge the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to stop deadly wild horse helicopter roundups, where wild horses are chased into corrals by helicopters and are often injured, killed, or separated from their families in the process.

At the Antelope Complex roundup in Nevada, Lady Freethinker recently documented a horse who broke his leg and ran for nearly an hour before he was killed by wranglers. You can watch the heartbreaking footage here. Already 26 wild horses have died in the Antelope Complex as of Aug. 1, and the roundup is scheduled through Aug. 22. 

Please help us call for an end to these horrific gathers — including in the Antelope Complex — by respectfully taking part in our week of action, which is August 7 – August 11. You can also RSVP on Facebook here and share the event to help spread the word.

Together, we can help END wild horse helicopter roundups! Please always make sure to be professional and respectful when you are advocating for animals.

  • Respectfully call the Bureau of Land Management at 202-208-3801 and demand an end to wild horse helicopter roundups. You can use a script from LFT as a guide if you are needing inspiration on what to say! See the full script here.
