Senate Appropriations maintains protections for wild horses

Despite crazy ideas pushed around to kill or slaughter America’s last wild horses, the United States Senate Appropriations Committee has upheld the law and we are grateful. We would like to thank Senator Udall for spearheading the moral path to honor the law.

Please call the following Senators. Thank them for protecting America’s last wild horses and politely ask them for an independent head count.

Sen. Mitch McConnell: (202) 224-2541
Sen. Chuck Schumer: (202) 224-6542
Sen. Thad Cochran: (202) 224-5054
Sen. Patrcky Leahy: (202) 224-4242
Sen. John Hoeven: (202) 224-2551
Sen. Jeff Merkley: (202) 224-3753
Sen. Lisa Murkowski: (202)-224-6665
Sen. Tom Udall: (202) 224-6621

Join more than 46,000 people who have signed the Petition for a Head Count of Wild Horses and Burros: https://www.change.org/p/u-s-senate-investigate-the-wild-horse-burro-count-in-captivity-and-freedom It’s essential we find out how many are left.

The fight continues

Sadly the Bureau of Land Management and groups who lobby for population control experimentation, as well as permanent and semi-permanent sterilization will continue to fear monger the trusting public up through the end of the year. . . It’s now that the public can notice who is in the fight to protect the wild horses and who is playing the game for the research grants, long term holding contracts and slick end of the year campaigns for fertility control–on a species threatened with extinction.

HELP Wild Mustang Preservation Project this November!

In 2014, after a stealth BLM roundup, Mark Boone Junior and I rescued the Dry Creek Wild Horses back from the Canadian slaughterhouse yard. All the wild horses from their herd, over the age of 2, had been quickly slaughtered at the plant right after the roundup. These youngsters were going to be live shipped to Asia for sashimi. We rescued them before they were sent to the Canadian airport. We called them the WY14™.

Now the WY14™ Wild Horses live in sanctuary on 270 rented biodiverse acres with ponds, meadows for grazing, spring-fed creeks, hills, buttes and their families. There are 4 bands and one of them is a bachelor band just like in the wild. Please donate today! https://www.gofundme.com/help-wy14tm-wild-horses-november

Their board on the ranch is paid monthly. GFM and the disbursement company take about 10% so the total the WY14™ Wild Horse herd needs to raise is $3,300. We raise money for their board monthly through crowdfunding so everyone can be a part of their life. Every dollar counts and they all add up to meet the WY14™’s goal.

We are looking for someone to help us with a capital land campaign or someone who can find a land donation suitable for the WY14™ Wild Horses. Please contact me if you can help. Meanwhile the WY14™ Wild Horses are boarding on 270 biodiverse acres where they are able to live in a natural setting–so happy and definitely healing from the trauma of the Wyoming roundup and loss.

Please donate today for their November board which includes grazing. The 270 acre terrain is varied from spring fed creeks and ponds to meadows and sagebrush, trees to hills and buttes. This is a good place for them. The vet, VIP visitors, and others have observed how happy they are. This is a grassroots project.

Why are Wild Babies Dying in BLM pens?

As published by the Herald and News

SUSANVILLE, Calif. – The Bureau of Land Management is working closely with veterinarians to determine the cause of death for 22 wild horse foals that became ill this past week, while housed at the BLM’s Litchfield Corrals near Susanville, according to a news release.

The illness has affected only the foals that had been isolated in a single pen. There have been no signs of illness in the rest of the corral population of about 300 horses.
“Our contract veterinarian has collected blood and tissue samples that are now being analyzed,” said BLM Northern California District Manager Alan Bittner. “We hope to have the test results soon.”

Wranglers at the corrals first noticed signs of flu-like illness Monday, Oct 2, in a pen of 4- to 5-month-old horses. The symptoms spread rapidly through the pen and foals began dying later that week. The BLM halted adoptions of the foals when the illness was detected.

The affected foals were born at the corrals to mares that had been gathered last September from the Devil’s Garden Wild Horse Territory on the Modoc National Forest.

RED ALERT: WY14™ Wild Horses need donations to keep their home!

 

RED ALERT: WY14™ Wild Horses must meet their board goal! The deadline has been extended! I am praying and praying that these deserving souls–who are continuously persecuted–will meet their goal to keep living on the 270 acres (see photo on grass below). Please donate now: https://www.gofundme.com/KeepWY14Safe !

They lost so much during the Wyoming Roundup! Everyone over the age of 2 in their herd was slaughtered before we found them at the Slaughterhouse feedlot in 2014.

Red Alert! Urgent Call to Save 3-Strikes Mares from Possible Slaughter #EquinoxMustangs

“Hell, some of the finest meat you will ever eat is a fat yearling colt,” said the infamous kill-buyer, Tom Davis. “What is wrong with taking all those BLM horses they got all fat and shiny and setting up a kill plant?”

BLM is getting ready to ship out 3-Strikes wild mares from Palomino Valley Center near Reno to “long-term holding” at taxpayer expense which mean these creeps, who are licking their chops, will want to get their hands on them. If Congress is stupid and votes for unlimited sales then 30,000 wild horses will be fat in long-term pastures and ready to ship to the slaughterhouses after their “middlemen” purchase them!

We aren’t going to let that happen!

You can buy up to 4 wild horses per year without special approval like Tom Davis had to buy them by the truckload. Here is the sales application: http://protectmustangs.org/…/PM-Application-to-Purchase-BLM…

The cost to buy the 3-Strikes mares is $25. each. Buyers are responsible for transportation so if you join up with buyers near you then you can save money in transport.

You need to FAX your purchase application in to BLM’s Palomino Valley Center’s fax number is (775) 475-2053.

Call me 415-531-8454 if you need help to get through the application. BLM wants specifics. Fencing issues can be solved. People can borrow panels from neighbors or build high pens with cheap materials.

Keep in mind these mares are wild and will need gentling. We can refer you to trainers who board wild horses .

Remember BLM wants their adoption program to fail and that’s why these mares have their 3-Strikes. BLM employees get paid the same government salary whether they adopt them out or ship them out. BLM’s goal is disposal. “Disposal” is written all over Congressional documents.

When you call the BLM they will tell you not to worry that everything is fine . . . Are you going to believe that?

Buying 3-Strikers is different than adopting. You get title right away then you are done with BLM. If you ever thought you would like to save some wild horses from potential slaughter–now is the time!

RED ALERT: #MustangMonday 9/11 Call in to Senate Appropriations Committee

Tell America’s elected officials on the Senate Appropriations Committee this:

1.) Ask the Senators on the Appropriations Committee to COUNT America’s wild horses and burros first and meanwhile defund population control, roundups and trapping, etc. According to the National Academy of Sciences, there is “no evidence” of overpopulation of America’s wild horses and burros. Remind them of the growing Petition for a Congressional Investigation and Head Count of Wild Horses and Burros in Captivity and in the Wild: https://www.change.org/p/u-s-senate-investigate-the-wild-horse-burro-count-in-captivity-and-freedom  

American taxpayers and the general public want to know:

A.) How much fraud has been committed regarding the wild horse and burro count on public land and in corrals?

B.) How many budgets were approved using fraudulent information?

C.) How many wild horses have gone to slaughter?

D.) How many wild horses and burros have been shot and killed?

E.) How many unbranded federally protected wild foals did the kill-buyers get to sell overseas?

F.) And more . . .

2.) Inform these elected officials on the Senate Appropriations Committee that you do not want American’s tax dollars to fund unlimited sales, slaughter, killing or the transfer of wild horses to the states. Ask them to defund anything mentioned in Chris Stewart Amendment as well as but not limited to euthanizing (KILLING), unlimited sales, slaughter, sterilizing or transferring wild horses to the states for use as “work horses” etc. They will end up killed or sold to slaughter and this must be stopped before it starts.

3.) Tell them you do not want tax dollars used to kill wild horses. Ask them to defund killing America’s wild horses. Politely urge them to respect the public’s wishes for #NoKillMustangs . Let them know about the Don’t Let Them Kill 45,000 Wild Horses and Burros petition http://www.thepetitionsite.com/907/592/301/demand-nokill-45000-wild-horses-burros-in-holding/

4.) Request they defund roundups and slaughter. Point them to the viral petition with more than 108,499 signatures against roundups, #Pesticide PZP or slaughter https://www.change.org/p/defund-and-stop-the-wild-horse-burro-roundups

5.) Tell them you do not want American tax dollars used to fund any experimentation on American wild horses and burros. Ask them to defund experimentation now whether it be for population control or other experiments. These majestic icons of freedom must not be abused.

Politely call all members in the Senate Appropriations Committee first thing Monday morning! Fax them after you call them. If they try to deny to hear your voice, because you do not reside in their state, remind them that America’s last wild horses and burros belong to all Americans in all states and since they are deciding their fate they shall hear your plea to protect them.

Marybeth Devlin responds to slanted science

Marybeth Devlin is a fact filled advocate for wild horses. She often comments against biased articles and research paid to fool elected officials. Now Devlin is exposing Laura Snell, a livestock and natural resource advisor with UC Agriculture and Natural Resources who is out to blame wild horses for damage from cattle or other large grazers.  If the publication doesn’t post Devlin’s comment on this article http://www.newswise.com/articles/wild-horse-overpopulation-is-causing-environmental-damage we want to make sure you can read the advocates comment here:

1. My experience observing Laura Snell disparage the wild horses, blaming them for any and all problems in the Forest, has led me to conclude that, for whatever reason, she has antipathy toward them. Her animus makes for a strong bias that infects her research. Snell’s studies appear wired to yield predetermined outcomes, which are consistently anti-horse and pro-cattle.

2. For instance, Snell’s trail-cameras are positioned, as your article says, “near remote water sources.” Cattle generally don’t “do” remote. So, is it any wonder that most of her photos are of wild horses but not cattle? Thus, her documentation is skewed. It builds a false case.

3. Snell mischaracterized the number of wild horses permitted in their own dedicated territory. The government has not determined the “ideal” number of horses. The number was set as low as possible to maximize livestock grazing slots (AUMs). Please note that ranchers sought Snell out. They are well-aware that she conducts her studies to advantage livestock-interests.

4. A constituent of Congressman LaMalfa, William Simpson, submitted an excellent proposal to deploy wild horses to graze down the dry old forage that would otherwise become fuel for wildfires. Horses are perfect for the job because they roam, because they access remote areas, and because they love dry forage. Plus, they work for free. Simpson calls it the “Wild Horse Fire Brigade.” High-level administrators in the Department of the Interior are interested. You won’t be surprised to hear that Snell opposes the plan and has been busy spreading falsehoods about it. However, Mr. Simpson took one of Snell’s propaganda-pieces and debunked it, point-by-point.

5. The Devil’s Garden Wild Horse Territory was the subject of a recent lawsuit in behalf of the wild horses. The suit charged that USFS had illegally split the territory in two, removed the middle 25,000 acres, and then reduced the number of horses allowed. The appelate court agreed, and ruled against USFS.

6. There is serious doubt regarding the overpopulation-claim for the Devil’s Garden wild horses. Too often, counts reflect herd-growth rates vastly exceeding that which is reproductively possible.

URGENT: Help Wild Mares Escape Experiments!

Help wild horses at BLM’s notorious Burns Corral (Oregon) get to safety

With all the information coming out of the Burns Corral in Hines, Oregon it’s no wonder that Bureau of Land Management (BLM) volunteers have tried to discredit good advocates for wild horses. I remember when bizarrely our 2012 awareness campaign about 3-Strikers being sold by the truckload was attacked. BLM’s collaborators don’t want the public to know the truth because selling truckloads of wild horses to kill buyers is greasing palms and disposing of America’s iconic wild horses that they regard as vermin.

Pro-slaughter activists–pushing for Nazi-like population control experiments on wild mares–claim to “volunteer for BLM” and have deep ties to the Burns Corral as well as the Eugene auction house which is frequented by kill-buyers. Recently, Pro-Slaughter activists purchased wild fillies from the BLM to perform sterilization surgeries on them then resell them at a rodeo. Their objective is to buy publicity for surgically sterilizing wild mares despite the fact that there is no evidence of overpopulation. Pro-slaughter lobbyists are dangling a $25,000 purse exclusively for these sterilized fillies in the upcoming 2018 rodeo. They seem to be partnering with BLM from the Burns Corral and using taxpayer dollars in the process. How do you feel about that?

Since the pro-slaughter lobby is happy to toss money around left and right it’s becoming obvious that they are paying internet trolls to infiltrate “horse advocacy” and Facebook groups. Their goal is to disrupt unity and break down the mustang protection movement. They start smears with goals to divide and conquer. It’s time for real horse advocates to realize they are being played by pro-slaughter creeps.

Are mustang profiteers taking advantage of the well intentioned national Trainer Incentive Program (TIP) to grab wild horses that the BLM wants to dispose of? How would you prove they are sneaking wild horses out and selling them to slaughter? Who is keeping track of all the wild horses who have been transferred to TIP “trainers” since 2009? Please sign and share the petition for a head count to uncover the back-doors to slaughter: https://www.change.org/p/u-s-senate-investigate-the-wild-horse-burro-count-in-captivity-and-freedom

 

The truth is, places like the Burns Corral in Oregon are high risk zones for wild horses. Please share the following mares so they can be adopted or purchase and get to safety in private care. Thank you and Bless you!

Please share out Wizard of Oz mares called GLENDA and DOROTHY. If these two mares don’t get picked and go into good homes then they could end up with another strike and soon sold for sterilization experimentation or worse. Check back here as we will be posting more on this page. Thank you for doing what you can do to help America’s last wild horses. Saving these two lives right now will make a difference for them. 

Together we can turn this around.

Roundups for fracking?

Is the BLM wiping out wild horses in Nevada because of the upcoming fracking boom for oil and natural gas? Of course they don’t want a bunch of dead wild horses pointing to the fracked poisoned water. People might notice they are poisoning the environment just like they did in Josh Fox’s Oscar nominated documentary GASLAND. (www.GASLANDthemovie.com) GASLAND 2 mentioned that wild horses are being rounded up where they are going to frack the land. Sadly many wild horses ended up sold to slaughter.

Are you aware of the infrastructure they are building in Nevada to store and ship Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) to Asia?

Please read this http://protectmustangs.org/?p=10428 and send your comments into BLM. They were hoping you wouldn’t notice.

Is BLM rounding up wild horses to frack for oil and gas?

From a  Bureau of Land Management press release:

BLM Seeks Public Comment on Public Lands Nominated for Oil and Gas Leasing

ELY, Nev.–The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Ely District is asking the public to review and provide comment on parcels of public land nominated for potential oil and gas exploration and development. The public comment period concludes Monday, Sept. 18, 2017. America’s free markets will help determine if energy development on public lands is feasible.

The BLM received requests to lease 208 nominated parcels of public land, totaling 388,960 acres. Leasing would occur in areas where oil and gas development is allowed under the 2008 Ely District Resource Management Plan. The decision to offer parcels for lease does not authorize any drilling or development. Impacts of leasing the parcels are analyzed in the preliminary environmental assessment (EA), in accordance with the Oil & Gas Leasing Reform mandated in 2010. Lease stipulations identified in the Ely Resource Management Plan (2008) are attached to some parcels to help protect certain resources. The preliminary EA is available for public review at http://bit.ly/2vH21Ix.

Interested individuals should address all written comments to the BLM Caliente Field Office, PO Box 237, Caliente, NV 89008, Attn: Dec. 2017 O&G Lease Sale or fax them to the Caliente Office at (775) 726-8111. Comments may also be submitted electronically with the subject, “ATTN: 2017 Oil & Gas Lease Sale” to blm_nv_ely_oil_and_gas2017@blm.gov.

Before including your address, phone number, e-mail address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment – including your personal identifying information – may be made publicly available at any time. While you can ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so.

A Competitive Oil and Gas Lease Sale is scheduled on December 12, 2017. Additional information about the sale including the sale notice and parcel list will be posted to https://on.doi.gov/2nntQCJ as it becomes available.
