The Humane Society of the U.S., Humane Society Legislative Fund, and ASPCA continue to derail horse protection efforts that weren’t their concepts or ideas. It’s a sad state of affairs based solely on their desire to continue fundraising and their vendetta against other smaller animal protection groups that keep coming up with fresh, new ideas.
In the Summer of 2020, the HSUS, and Humane Society Legislative Fund (HSLF) attempted to derail an $11 million wild horse amendment that would have forced the BLM to use PZP birth control instead of rounding up wild horses with helicopters.
In the Fall of 2020, the HSUS, HSLF, and ASPCA banded together to oppose revisions to the Prevent All Soring Tactics (PAST) Act that would have ended the horrific practice of soring Tennessee Walking, Racking, and Spotted Saddle Horses. The PAST Act has never been enacted after 9 years because of opposition in the U.S. Senate, and the revisions would have accomplished 90% of the bill and banned tail braces that weren’t even addressed in the original PAST Act.
Today, on June 9, 2021, the HSUS and HSLF derailed an amendment in the House Transportation Committee to ban the transport of horses bound for slaughter in the U.S. while 150 groups including PETA and SPCA International supported the measure.
These organizations also partnered with the Farm Bureau and Cattlemen on the “Path Forward” to roundup and imprison the majority of wild horses on the range. As long as these groups continue this maniacal behavior horses will remain abused and in danger being sored, rounded up, and going to slaughter.
