Wild Horse Freedom Federation and Equine Welfare Alliance are dedicated to providing information exposing the inherent cruelty and abuse associated with horse slaughter and what is really happening to our wild horses and burros – on and off the range.

 

Investigations by nature are graphic. Most of our investigative documents begin
with a cover sheet so if you choose not to view the images, you can read the summary and close the document.

Wild Horse Freedom Federation
and
Equine Welfare Alliance have partnered in bringing a team of certified Investigators into our program so that we can jointly work together to shine the light of documented truth upon the bloody trade of kill buyers transporting American horses across our borders and the BLM’s continued cruel roundups and ultimate sale of our national icons to the very same kill buyers that haunt auctions, race tracks and unattended pastures of everyday horse owners.

If you know of a suspect activity or have evidence of any violation of law by kill buyers or the BLM you can instantly alert us by sending an email to tips@equinewelfarealliance.org or tips@wildhhorsefreedomfederation.org.

Your information will be held in the strictest confidence so as to preserve its integrity for any impending legal action and your return email address will be closely guarded. But if anonymity is your preference you may fill out the simple form, below, and it will be automatically forward to our “tips” email box to be evaluated and acted upon.




Anonymous Tip Form

Since this form is anonymous and the investigators cannot contact you for additional information, all information must be completed in order for the  investigators to act upon.
