  1. There is ABSOLUTELY NO REASON for ANY MORE DAMN ROUNDUPS!!! With the mares that have been given that PZP shot not foaling sometimes for YEARS!! There need be no more abusing and chasing and murdering of any more of OUR mustangs!!! BLM is out to totally ELIMINATE by either total removal or causing inbreeding with leaving to many for viable genetic diversity!!!! DOWN WITH THE BLM!!!! GET THEM OUT OF THE MANAGEMENT OF OUR MUSTANGS NOW!!! KEN SLAUGHTER-CZAR MUST BE BROUGHT TO ACCOUNTABILITY FOR HIS AND THESE ACTIONS NOW!!!!!

  2. Thank you Cat for being there to document this abuse and cause of needless death of a beautiful mare. There was absolutely NO reason those horses had to be handled in such a manner!!! Those jerks NEVER let them calm down, or catch their breath, or anything. The CONSTANTLY keep them boogered up and totally freaked so that they don’t always see through the fear and bad things happen then….Those pretend “cowboys” need to be brought up on animal cruelty charges IMMEDIATELY for the way they harass by helicopter, and at the pens with their whips and plastic bags and keep the horses in a state of constant fear and wanting to escape. NO EXCEPTIONS either!!! EVERYONE associated with this action is guilty!!!!
