Veterinarians Endorse Brutal Form of Wild Horse Sterilization & Killing!

Veterinarians Endorse Brutal Form of Wild Horse Sterilization & Killing!

This alert is no longer active, but here for reference. Animals still need your help.

The American Association of Equine Practitioners has released a draft position paper endorsing both sterilization and unrestricted sale (slaughter) of America's wild horses and burros! For veterinarians who have taken their oath for "the protection of animal health and welfare, the prevention and relief of animal suffering..." this is unconscionable. We must act now to let this organization know it must immediately redraft its position paper to remove these savage plans for wild horses.

This particular spay procedure is torturous and often life-threatening. Ovariectomy via colpotomy is widely considered to be dangerous for domestic mares, and exponentially so for wild horses. Donald Moore, DVM, of Fruita, Colorado says that, "In private practice, colpotomy is considered an inferior procedure with likelihood of post-surgical infections and complications." He goes on to state that the post-operative care necessary, "cannot be accomplished with wild mares." The mortality and complication rate in previous "experiments" on wild horses and burros is high, all with the coinciding suffering of the animals involved.

Please consider watching this disturbing and graphic footage of the barbaric sterilization technique for our wild equines and judge for yourself whether it is humane. This mare died after the procedure when her intestines came out.
