Willie Nelson releases song in support of the AWI’s efforts to end horse slaughter
Willie Nelson and his family band have released a remake of the Rolling Stones’ song “Wild Horses.” Proceeds will be donated to the Animal Welfare Institutes’s campaigns on behalf of wild and domestic horses.
The AWI has been working on missions to protect wild horses and end horse slaughter.
The Music Industry News Network quotes Nelson as saying – “The BLM has been rounding them up at an alarming rate, supposedly for their own good. Sadly, there are more wild horses in holding pens than in the wild. Something is wrong with that, so we must act now before the BLM has managed these magnificent animals into extinction.
“It’s time for the cowboys to stand up for the horses.”
