Here is something I hope you are interested in taking action on.

We need to save these horses, and quickly. The Forest Service has issued aPublic Notice stating the Salt River Wild Horses will be permanently removed beginning August 7, 2015.

The Forest Service have called these majestic animals "feral," "unauthorized livestock" and denied that they are a protected wild herd, but supporters have said these animals have lived wild in the Tonto National Forest area outside of Phoenix for decades.

Once they are 'removed,' even the Forest Service admits they could end up at the slaughter house.

Sign the petition and flood the Forest Service with concern for these wild horses - urge the Forest Service to leave the horses on their range!

Recently, a rumor has been circulating that some of the Salt River Wild Horses have not been able to access water. This rumor is being used as one of the justifications for removing the horses, however, the premise is not true so the conclusion is invalid. These horses know where to find water; at the furthest extent of their home range they are only a few miles away from water, they have many routes to reach any location and they can travel distances in a short period of time. These horses have existed for a very long time without the intervention of man.

We Know How Far Trump Will Go - How Far Will Republicans Go?

Thom plus logo Colonel Vindman's testimony pretty much proves that Trump was trying to shake down Ukraine for information on Biden, and that the Republicans are doing everything they can to cover up this extortion attempt.
