Storyboard Text

  • Velma Bronn Johnston worked to save the wild mustangs in the United States.
  • VELMA BRONN JOHNSTON
  • "WILD HORSE ANNIE"
  • HELPING THE HORSES
  • I MUST HELP THESE HORSES!
  • Velma Bronn Johnston fought her whole life to protect these wild creatures no matter what it took.
  • VELMA'S WORK
  • Then she worked harder to get a public indignation and support for the first federal law to protect wild horses.
  • In 1950, Velma saw a trailer stocked full of wild horses on their way to the pet food slaughterhouse. It was a horrible scene as she witnessed a yearling being trampled to death at the bottom of the trailer by its fellow horses.
  • MAKING A LAW
  • Just at that moment she realized that this had gone too far. Velma was going to try and help these poor creatures that were being lassoed and shipped across the country just to be slaughtered.
  • THE END
  • She worked and fought hard enough that she got a bill banning aircraft and land vehicles from capturing wild horses on state lands. But sadly this was not enough protection. Pet food industries were getting around this law.
  • It was in 1959 that a law was made to prohibit the use of any form of motorized vehicles as well as the poisoning of water holes for capture or killing of the wild horses.
  • We need to have a law.
