Wild Horses and Waterfowl Habitats

URGENT: Read the letter filled with false claims sent by Ducks Unlimited that is negatively impacting the critical legislation to protect the Corolla wild horse herd as well as the response by our Executive Director. If you are a local hunter or come here to hunt, you know that the wild horses have no impact on the duck population – or the subaquatic vegetation. In fact, on September 13, 2012 as he and our Herd Manager conducted our aerial herd count (which is 119 not 140 as stated by Mr. Hall), the Currituck Wildlife Refuge Manager remarked that there was more subaquatic vegetation than he had seen in a long time. Please write, call, or email H. Dale Hall; Senators Hagan, Burr, Inhofe; Boxer; Warner and Webb and let them know, that as a hunter, or a member of Ducks Unlimited you are outraged by these false statements and ask these Senators to pass the Corolla Wild Horses Protection Act. Time is running out.
