Wild Mustangs … like Coyote … their lives have been abruptly disrupted by the government supported, and abusive use of our western lands by most cattle and sheep ranchers.
Tens of thousands of Coyotes are trapped, poisoned and gunned down by low flying airplanes…all in the name of cattle and sheep ranching. Tens of thousands of Wild Mustangs, terrified and running for their lives are forced into pens by low flying helicopters … all to give cows more room to graze. They have lost their freedom, just as Coyotes have lost their lives.
Right now there are over 40,000 of our wild mustangs whose freedom has been taken away from them, and who are standing in holding pens with uncerain futures. This Saturday, June 16, truck loads of these terrified wild horses, who have been trucked all the way across our continent, will be arriving in Rutland, Vermont to be auctioned off. Many well intentioned individuals who want to give these horses a second chance truly do not understand their wildness.
But there is a woman from Maine that does. Her name is Mona Jerome, and she established the Ever After Mustang Rescue located in Biddeford, Maine. She is a woman who has seen the immense need these beautiful and terrified horses have in their lives. She will be in Vermont to bring more Mustangs to her Refuge, but also to help educate others about their wildness and their needs.
I wanted to share the plight of our wild mustangs to point out how much in need we are in our society to take a serious look at how we are using our land. The suffering and death of our wildlife like Coyote and the Wild Mustangs tells us that we as a society are not using the land in a sustainable and healthy way. We need to change how we do things for ourselves, so that all life is enriched at the same time.
And finally, despite the tragedy of our Wild Mustangs and our Coyotes, I wanted to share this story to tell you about Mona Jerome, who saw a need and took action. She has tranformed a tragedy in to many acts of Compassion. Amazing Americans, like her, are the ones who truly help our species to evolve down the path we would like to send our children. THANYOU, MONA JEROME!
Now YOU, who are reading this, take Action for our Coyotes here in Maine!
