Singer Sheryl Crow supports the wild horses

Singer Sheryl Crow is taking up the cause of wild horses, joining with The Cloud Foundation to petition President Barack Obama and members of Congress to enact a moratorium on wild horse and burro roundups on public lands.

The call is sparked by a plan of the Bureau of Land Management to remove wild mustangs in Nevada. In October, Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar proposed a “cost-efficient, sustainable management program,” which included the establishment of horse preserves.

“We ask that President Obama or Secretary Salazar cease all BLM roundups as of this date to prevent further suffering,” Crow said in a release sent out Friday through The Cloud Foundation. “We request that the government and BLM begin to work in good faith with wild horse advocates for a sustainable solution. The Calico Roundup, scheduled to begin in December and continue through the dead of winter, is inhumane and must be stopped!”

Crow was a passionate supporter of Obama’s during last year’s presidential campaign and performed at the inaugural celebration at the Lincoln Memorial.

Here is the press release from The Cloud Foundation announcing the unified petition.
