The letter asks Secretary Salazar to respond to the demands of the 25,130 American citizens who signed a petition, which we delivered in person to the Department of the Interior in November 2011. To date, we have had no response from the Department, despite the petition's request that the Secretary respond within ten days.
Your help is urgently needed. It is important that we gain the support of as many members of Congress as possible to make sure that our voice on behalf of wild horses and burros is finally heard within the Obama Administration. We need as many sign ons as possible as soon as possible, since Secretary Salazar is set to retire from the Interior Department at the end of March.
