West was pregnant when the BLM rounded up the wild herd at the request of the Wyoming Livestock Board. The whole herd was auctioned off in Worland to the kill buyers from the Canadian SLAUGHTERHOUSE. They were taken to the slaughterhouse yard. Shortly afterwards the transports to slaughter began. . .
The paint mare, known as West, was too heavily pregnant to legally transport across the border to the slaughterhouse. Her unborn foal saved her from death. The slaughterhouse workers would send her later–after the foal was born.
Everyone else in their herd over the age of 2 was sent to the Canadian slaughterhouse and slaughtered for human consumption abroad.
West’s stallion, who she loved very much, was slaughtered and the rest of her family was too. Even though West was kept back at the yard she felt their terror when they were all killed and slaughtered.
Grief consumed her.
Please HELP West and the WY14™ Herd with your tax-deductible donation so they can stay in the safe place on 300 acres of bio-diverse pasture. Please share their monthly fundraiser too: https://www.gofundme.com/MustangPasture8-16 Board is due every month.
The WY14™ Herd sends you so much love for helping them. ❤️
