Posted by Texas Mustang Project on October 3, 2010


Forwarded for Bonnie Matton, Wild Horse Preservation League  This relates to the horses in Moundhouse, NV that are being lured across busy US-50 to get to an unfenced “pasture” operated by the Governor’s Deputy Chief of Staff.

Thanks! “:O) Willis

Subject: WE NEED YOU TO CALL/EMAIL NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!
   Date:  Fri, 1 Oct 2010 16:46:20 -0700
   From: “Bonnie Matton”

I just now (4:30 pm – Friday) received a call from someone telling me the horses are AGAIN on Highway 50 East, trying to cross back to water after feeding on Lynn Hettrick’s “Smorgasboard!”  So, here’s what I’m asking ALL OF YOU to do for the wild ones – even you who do not live in our area, nor our state, but are trying to save these wild horses: 

Please, make the following calls/emails immediately. It doesn’t matter if the office is closed for the weekend, you can leave messages.  

A portable, self-standing fence was seen surrounding the acreage late last Saturday.  On Tuesday, there were no fences
surrounding the ‘field.’  WHY?????  Electric “reader board” signs were placed last Thursday on Highway 50 East warning drivers this location is where horses are crossing, but the signs were removed on Tuesday.  WHY?????  (When Nevada Department of Transportation was called on this one, Scott McGruder – head of the department – wasn’t even aware the signs had been taken down.  WHY???)

EMAILS:  “It is your responsibility, as a public servant, to protect the citizens of Nevada as well as the animals of Nevada.  It is not the fault of the wild horses.  It is the fault of Lynn Hettrick who selfishly refused to stop watering his so-called ‘pasture.’ ”  
Send this email to:

Governor Jim Gibbons
775-694-5670
jgibbons@gov.nv.gov

(inserted note:  If Gibbons has his email turned off, use the web form: http://gov.state.nv.us/Contact_Us_NORTHX.htm)

‘cc’ the above email to:
Lt. Governor Brian Krolicki
775-684-7111
ltgov@ltgov.nv.gov

‘cc’ the above email to:
Lynn Hettrick
lchettrick@gov.nv.gov
775-684-5670 

Then, in making your phone calls, you can say just the same thing above, but can use your own words if you prefer. 
PLEASE, PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO DO THIS.  OTHERWISE – SURE AS ANYTHING – THESE WILD HORSES, THROUGH NO FAULT OF THEIR OWN, WILL BE ROUNDED UP AND VERY POSSIBLY BE SOLD AT THE MEAT-BUYERS’ MARKETS………!

(Inserted note: This herd is not one protected by the WFR Horses & Burros Act.)
 
Thank you one and all, Bonnie
