Saved from Slaughter (Warning Graphic Video)

PM WY14 Saved May 2014 Neutral Zone

This is what Anne Novak and Mark Boone Junior saved the WY14™ from: (WARNING the following video is graphic)

Their families were slaughtered in Canada before we could find them. 

PM WY41 Chute

Please help the WY14™ Wild Horses heal from the trauma of the brutal helicopter roundup and the cruel slaughter of their families. The mustangs need your help to stay on the 260 bio-diverse acres where they have a sense of freedom until we can secure land for their eco-sanctuary. They also need hay supplemented for half of the year and especially now in the winter!

The American Wild Horse Institute is looking into population management to ensure the nonprofit organization runs a sustainable and responsible preservation project. Only one foal was conceived of and joined the herd since they were all rescued back from the slaughterhouse in 2014.

The WY14™ Wild Horses thank you and are so grateful for your help!

The American Wild Horse Institute is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. All donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law. The Institute is run by volunteers. No salaries are paid. This way the money raised can go to the wild horses. Visit the website www.AmericanWildHorseInstitute.org Tax ID 464516347

Note: The American Wild Horse Institute, the WY14™ wild mustangs, Protect Mustangs,  Anne Novak, and others have been viciously attacked since January 2016. Paid pro-slaughter activists and their “friends” infiltrate horse advocacy to destroy movements against horse slaughter. Their Hate Groups are well documented attacking anti-slaughter organizations. The attacks make The Alliance for Wild Horses and Burros stronger.

Slaughterhouse survivors need help to stay in rented sanctuary

AWHI WY14 Spitfire Tara August 18 2016

From the American Wild Horse Institute

The WY14™ Herd of wild mustangs was rescued back from the Canadian Slaughterhouse yard. The need your help to live in the grassroots supported sanctuary on 300 rented bio-diverse acres for $2,500 a month.

Now that The Institute is officially a 501c3 nonprofit organization, not only are you donations tax-deductible but now we can look for grants to cover preservation program costs like this until the Eco-Sanctuary is ready. Meanwhile the WY14™ need your help through crowd-funding to stay in the rented Eco-Pasture on 300 acres.

AWHI WY14 August 29 2016

Please share the WY14™ Herd’s fundraiser: https://www.gofundme.com/MustangPasture9-16 Together every dollar counts and helps this small herd of survivors.

GFM/FG takes about 10% in processing fees so the total goal is $2,760. All the money raised here goes to pay for a month of rented eco-pasture for their sanctuary housing and feeding 4 bands of wild horses. We are 100% volunteer–no salaries, no directors are paid. We do this to cut costs so all the money raised goes directly to program costs like this.

Please help the slaughterhouse survivors with a tax-deductible donation so they can stay on the 300 acres in September, continue to heal from the trauma of the roundup and slaughter of their families as part of this preservation project.

We welcome you to contact us if you would like to help create the AWHI Eco-Sanctuary for education and preservation.

The WY14™ Herd is very grateful their friends are helping them. They send you their love and blessings.

With loving kindness,
Anne

Help wild horses rescued back from the slaughterhouse stay in sanctuary

Miracle rescue back from the slaughterhouse!

All the members of the WY14™ Herd except West were set aside for the foal sushi and sashimi market in Asia. That’s why they weren’t slaughtered before we could find them. The Canadian slaughterhouse ships live foals to Asia for sashimi! They were waiting to have a full plane load.

At 3-years-old, horse meat looks dark red but at 2 and under it is pink and sold as an expensive delicacy–“foal meat”. That’s why they quickly slaughtered everyone in their herd over the age of 2 except West. She was too heavily pregnant to legally transport from the slaughter house yard in Shelby Montana to the slaughterhouse in Calgary.

Craig Downer and many others have studied the WY14™ Herd and noticed the slaughter brands made from hot irons on these innocent mustangs. They are healing on 300 rented acres of biodiverse pasture after the roundup and slaughter of their herd.

We are creating a permanent eco-sanctuary for the WY14™ and others. We were awarded our 501c3 about 4 months ago so things are moving forward. If you would like to be part of the eco-sanctuary please contact us at Contact@AmericanWildHorseInstitute.org We are looking into grants and how to get land but this takes time and we need help. Meanwhile the herd needs your monthly help. You can make a tax-deductible donation here:  https://www.gofundme.com/MustangPasture8-16 All the money raised goes directly to their pasture board.

We have been viciously attacked by PRO-Slaughter activists and their friends since January because there is a big push to wipe out America’s wild horses this year. You can help the WY14™ Herd stay on the rented pasture so they can have sanctuary. Please share the herd’s monthly fundraiser and make a donation if you can. Board is due August 1st. Click here to share: https://www.gofundme.com/MustangPasture8-16

Thank you for helping the only wild horses who have ever been rescued back from being owned by the slaughterhouse. Someday I hope you will come meet them. Thank you!

The WY14™ Herd sends you their Great Love and Gratitude for helping them and being part of their lives.

With loving kindness,
Anne

Did you join the group requesting Nazi-like sterilization experiments on pregnant wild mares?

See the list of sterilization activists who are asking for sterilization experiments on wild mares below

A group of Pro-Experiment activists on a Bureau of Land Management (BoLM) support Facebook page called Wild Horses, BLM and Logical Solutions (https://www.facebook.com/groups/1446611602254365/) , have asked the BoLM to experiment on wild horses. They wrote a letter calling for the Oregon sterilization experiments. They also asked for PZP to be used on the more tame herds. Pro-Experiment activists in their group signed it. Pro-Slaughter activists signed it too.

If you have “joined” their group–just to watch what this treacherous group of Pro-Slaughter, Pro-Experiment, Pro-Livestock, Pro-Pesticide PZP activists, BoLM employees and supporters, etc. are up to–know that they count all their group members as people supporting their agenda for sterilization experiments on wild pregnant mares in Oregon and elsewhere.

Recently one of their admins boasted, “We have 2,000 members . . . “.

We were very shocked to see The Cloud Foundation board member, Linda Gresham Hanick, vocal in the Wild Horses, BLM and Logical Solutions group but since this group not only pushes for sterilization experiments on pregnant mares but also pushes for Pesticide PZP–like the Cloud Foundation who calls and partners with BLM for Pesticide PZP–we understand why their board member might be there. (http://www.blm.gov/style/medialib/blm/mt/main_story.Par.31432.File.dat/TopStoryHorse.pdf)

Hanick seems to have been also a vocal member of a group Facebook shut down for Harassment and Hate Speech targeting our volunteer executive director, Anne Novak who created the Forum on PZP for Wild Horses & Burros on Federal Land (https://www.facebook.com/groups/ForumPZPWildHorsesBurros) educating thousands of people on Pesticide PZP. Novak is against experimenting on wild horses, against horse slaughter and a strong advocate for wild horse freedom often quoted in the news.

I Hate Group Reviewed by FB and Closed screen Shot 2016-05-06 at 12.29.26 AM

Many of the signors of the Ovarian Ligation and PZP letter were active members of a public group Facebook shut down for Harassment and Hate Speech targeting Anne Novak. Keep in mind Novak and other members of the Alliance for Wild Horses and Burros have been speaking out against the experiments since they announced them.

We have evidence of members of the Hate Group engaging in stalking, harassment, hate speech, etc. plotting to interfere with Anne Novak’s work, Protect Mustangs‘ mission as we as the mission of The American Wild Horse Institute, care of the wild horses rescued back from the slaughterhouse known as the Wyoming 14™ (WY14™) plus others and evidence of their plot to smear Novak’s good reputation and more.

Below are the names of the members of Logical Solutions who signed the letter calling for sterilization experiments on pregnant mares:

Proposal of Ovarian Ligation
By Sandee Force on Monday, August 24, 2015

From: Members of Wild Horses, BLM and Logical Solutions

To: U.S. Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Council

Re: Population Management of wild herds on HMAs

The members of the Wild Horses, BLM and Logical Solutions have spent time considering potential solutions to the ever increasing number of horses and burros needing to be removed from the range held in both Long Term Holding and Short Term Holding. We feel that a two pronged program would both greatly decrease the number of animals needing to maintained in this manner and allow older mares to live out their lives on the range.

We would like to suggest that ovarian ligation be put into an immediate test program in at least 2 and preferably 3 herds using herds that are widely watched and recorded by regional photographers. Our suggestion would allow for mares that are old enough to have had at least 4-5 foals accessed at gathering and removed to the closest holding facility to do ovarian ligation by a veterinarian who has experience in this procedure. We would suggest that working with the state veterinary school located closest to each facility would be the optimal way to get young vets trained on this procedure and to potentially hire vets specifically for the program from this pool of trained professionals.We realize that standard policy would normally be to spend a number of years doing in pen trials with horses that would be scheduled to go to LTH. We feel that this can be bypassed by using herds that are currently being observed and by training the photographers to record information on these mares that would give accurate information about how they assimilate back into the herds. We would like to suggest that along with the ovarian ligation all fillies 3 and under be given PZP and allowed to be more mature at first foaling.

To summarize our proposal as accurately as possible, allowing for changes needed by region or herd.

1. Two to three test herds be chosen that mares will be brought in and those 3 and under be given the correct dosage of PZP for their age and mares that are of an age to have 4-5 foals on the ground have the ovarian ligation procedure done to at the holding
facility. Those mares that are operated on can be held for an appropriate period for recovery at the facility to document reaction and to ensure proper healing of all incisions before being returned to the area that they were captured. Any foals that are under weaning age should stay with the mare in the holding facility and be release with her. Use a
small hip brand to designate ovarian ligation for observation purposes.

2. Any mare that shows a major genetic defect or has thrown multiple foals with genetic disorders should automatically be put into the ovarian ligation program no matter what the age.

3. Train photographers and volunteers to work with the USGS and Universities to properly document range interaction of both the mares who have been given ovarian ligation and those fillies given PZP. Video and photographic documentation of herd/band interaction would be ideal. It is imperative to have USGS and at least one University involved in both
documentation and study of the effect of ovarian ligation on herd dynamics and the health and well being of both, mares and foals as well as the local bands that they belong to.

4. Document the short and long term consequences of ovarian ligation on the mares, i.e. heath, longevity, and acceptance/position within the band. Note if the mares are removed from the bands and act like bachelor stallion bands.

5. Within 3 years if the results of the test herds are good expand to other BLM managed herds with the goal to cut down on required gathers to once every 6-8 years.

6. Look into the possibility of darting with PZP every 2 years to expand the time young mares have a chance to mature before starting to foal.

The goal of this plan is to decrease the rate of population growth on the range.
In conjunction it would allow these older mares to stay on the range without adding to population growth until their deaths and not have to be gathered and shipped to Long Term Holding Facilities for their senior years. Between the ovarian ligation and using PZP on the fillies the herd’s rate of growth could be reduced by 50% per year. This would substantially help both the range and the cost of gathering and housing the horses and burros while keeping more horses on the range. By hip branding the mares that have had ovarian ligation you would be able to gate cut those mares back onto the range at any subsequent gather and not have to haul them off the range.

Some of the herds suggested for this procedure are South Steens, Oregon; Sand Wash Basin, Colorado; Twin Peaks, California; and/or BLM HMA around the Reno/Carson area of Nevada. These are herds that have been previously documented and in the case of both Sand Wash Basin and South Steens there is photographic documentation of the herds for 5-7 years that would be available to work within this project.

West escaped slaughter

AWHI WY14 West Foal April 24 2016 FB
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. ❤️
