Subject: Pulling Special Needs Wild Horses From Holding and The Adoption

Program and Killing Them

From: <@protectmustangs.org>

Date: Thu, November 10, 2016 12:05 pm

To: tgorey@blm.gov

Dear Mr. Gorey,

Is it true that the Bureau of Land Management (BoLM) and/or the Department of Interior is pulling or plans to pull wild horses from the adoption program and holding facilities to kill them if they have any sort of special needs such as club feet or other alleged defects? Who gave the order to do this?

We officially request the following:

  1. Take and post photos on the internet. 3 photos of each wild horse and/or burro you intend to kill. One of their face, one of their full body and one of their alleged defect.
  2. Offer all special needs wild horses up for adoption for a reduced fee on the internet as an incentive before killing them. They have already lost their freedom and families. Give the public a chance to save them. 
  3. Provide transportation to the adopters facility if they adopt 2-4 special needs wild horses. 

How many have you already killed?

We also request you take a photo of how you are disposing of their dead bodies after the Bureau of Land Management, their contractors or others have killed them. Are you burying them in pits at the holding facilities?

I pray that the Bureau of Land Management will offer these wild horses to compassionate people who want to save their lives or to sanctuaries instead of killing them. They have made it this far. Just because they aren’t perfect doesn’t mean they should be killed. After all, you have already destroyed their natural lives by rounding them up with helicopters, ripping apart their families, destroying their ecological niche and subjecting them to lonely lives in captive feedlot settings or long term holding ranches at taxpayer expense.

We are awaiting your response.

Sincerely,

Anne Novak

Help get wild horses to safety!

Now that the election is over let’s get America’s at-risk wild horses out of holding facilities to safety! Don’t forget the Bureau of Land Management’s Advisory Board voted to kill all the wild horses in holding facilities. They are all at risk of losing their lives.

Please Help SARA (#1709) Get To Safety! 

She was passed over in the Internet Adoption and has another STRIKE against her

pm-adopt-sara-1709-blm-fallon-nov-2016

SARA (#1709) seems to be a very bright yearling filly who needs to get out of the clutches of the Bureau of Land Management! She will respond well to leadership, respect and love once she knows she can trust you. She is growing. She seems to be very intelligent– holding ancient herd wisdom lost with so many wild horses being slaughtered. But with that comes an eye that will watch to see if she can trust you. Show her pure love and patience so SARA can shine. Adopt her with a buddy so she will feel safe and less stressed as she is gentled and learns to trust you. Take it slow with her. SARA seems to be the kind of wild mustang who will love you forever.

Adoption is $125 and 3-Strikers for purchase cost $25

This is what the Bureau of Land Management says about SARA:

Sex: Filly Age: 1 Years Height (in hands): 13.1

Necktag #: 1709 Date Captured: 04/01/15

Freezemark: 15621709 Signalment Key: HF1AAEDIE

Color: Sorrel Captured: Born in a Holding Facility

Notes:
1709 IS A YEARLING BORN AT A FACILITY
This wild horse is currently located in Fallon, NV. For more information, please contact Jeb Beck at (775) 475-2222 or e-mail: j1beck@blm.gov

More wild horses at-risk will be posted soon!

Please share this post to help 3-Strikers and those close to 3-Strikes get to safe homes, sanctuaries and trainers. It’s much cheaper to adopt and or buy them now than later from a kill pen for seven times the price.

Contact us by email at Contact@ProtectMustangs.org if you need help navigating the Bureau of Land Management’s red tape or get discouraged. Problems can be solved so you can save wild horses. Our goal is to support you to make your adoption or 3-Strike purchase a happy experience.

Check back on this page daily as we will be updating this page with mustangs who need to be saved. Thank you and Bless you!

For the Wild Ones,

2 special needs wild horses escape death at roundup

Protect Mustangs will help find homes for 2 wild horses who would have been killed at Modoc Forest roundup

ALTURAS, Ca.(September 27, 2016)–Last week Anne Novak, founder and director of Protect Mustangs reached out to U.S. Forest Service staff with an offer to help find homes for any wild horses rounded up with pre-existing conditions–who would be killed–not offered a chance at adoption. Tonight Novak received the first call from Forest Service staff.

“It’s always bothered me that after wild horses heal from injuries and survive in the wild, they are chased by helicopters, rounded up and killed upon capture because they don’t seem like they would get adopted,” says Novak. “Some people don’t want a riding horse. Some people want to save a life.”

So far, two wild horses from the roundup have pre-existing conditions. One is believed to be pigeon toed due to a broken foot that healed in the wild. The other mustang’s condition is unknown at this time.

“They need to go to loving homes to become pets–not riding partners–or go to sanctuaries,” explains Novak. “They have survived in the wild and that’s a harsh life. They deserve our compassion after the roundup and they deserve to live.”

After the mustang protectors make an assessment of the wild horses with pre-existing conditions, a sanctuary might be a more suitable forever home. It’s too early to tell.

These two California wild horses from Modoc County will join their herd-mates at the Bureau of Land Management’s Litchfield holding Corrals near Susanville. There they will be prepared for adoption with the others.

Adoption applications are here: Protect-Mustangs-BLM-facility-adoption-app

    • Cost to adopt is $125.
    • Adoptions by appointment only, call (530) 254-6575.
    • Open Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Summer hours are 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. The facilities are closed on federal holidays. Please call for current information.
    • Information is available 24 hours a day by calling 1-800-545-4256.
    • Completed adoption applications can be sent to Videll Retterath by e-mail vrettera@blm.gov or fax (530)252-6762.
    • The Corrals are located 21 miles east of Susanville , CA on US Highway 395.
    • Adopters receive title to wild horses after one year

Protect Mustangs will post photos as soon as we get them. Tax-deductible Gas donations are always needed to help us help the wild ones.

Members of the public with questions about the BLM’s requirements for adoption, questions about the wild horses with pre-existing conditions, who want to help network homes for wild horses who would be killed for pre-existing conditions, need trainer referrals, or want some tips on how to build an inexpensive shelter are invited to email the mustang protectors at Contact@ProtectMustangs.org

“I pray we can change the trend of killing special needs wild horses at roundups,” says Novak. ‘Someone’s going to fall in love with them. After all they’re still American mustangs.”

False Win: Is the Bureau of Land Management retaining the right to kill “unadoptable” wild horses and those over 10-years-old despite public outcry?

PM IA GAIA #8402 Carson July 2016

The Bureau of Land Management has responded to public pressure but is NOT saying they won’t kill the wild horses and burros in holding. Read the emails below.

“The news circulating in the press is designed to put out the fire of public outcry. As long as the Bureau of Land Management has the legal right due to the Burns Amendment to give wild horses 3-Strikes, KILL alleged “unadoptable” wild horses and those over 10 years old then nothing has changed.” –Anne Novak, executive director of Protect Mustangs

This is what the Bureau of Land Management has posted on their website:

Question: What is the BLM’s response to the recommendation made by the National Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Board on September 9, 2016, to sell without limitation or humanely euthanize excess horses and burros in BLM’s off-range corrals and pastures that are deemed “unadoptable”?

Answer: The National Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Board is an independent panel comprised of members of the public that make recommendations to the Bureau of Land Management regarding its management of wild horses and burros. The BLM is committed to having healthy horses on healthy rangelands. We will continue to care for and seek good homes for animals that have been removed from the range. Currently, there are more than 67,000 wild horses and burros on public rangelands, and the BLM is caring for nearly 50,000 animals in off-range corrals and pastures.

“Bureau of Land Management Director Neil Kornze told a congressional panel yesterday that the agency has no plans to follow the recommendation of an advisory panel that has called on BLM to euthanize potentially thousands of wild horses it cannot sell or adopt.” — Energy & Environment News

Statement from Anne Novak, Founder and Executive Director of Protect Mustangs: We have seen the Bureau of Land Management slither back after public outcry before and that is all this is. Their statement says nothing about not killing or stopping unlimited sales to slaughterhouse middlemen. Legally it is still an option to them. Therefore it is more important than ever to keep the #NoKill pressure on and to push for wild horses and burros to be returned to freedom. There is no evidence of overpopulation, period. Independent head counts of all the wild horses in holding and in the wild are urgent now to uncover the truth. How many are really left?

PM Poppy #1196 3-Strike PVC FB

We contacted Tom Gorey, Senior Public Affairs Specialist at Bureau of Land Management today to confirm the information circulating in the press and asked the bureau if they retained the right to KILL the “unadoptable” wild horses and burros and those over 10-years-old and have not received a clear response. Our last email was not answered. Read the emails below:

The statement says nothing really. So kindly answer my question. Does the BLM reserve the right to kill “unadoptable” wild horses and burros as well as those over 10-years-old?

Our petitions still stand:
1.) Investigate the Wild Horse & Burro Count in Captivity and in Freedom https://www.change.org/p/u-s-senate-investigate-the-wild-horse-burro-count-in-captivity-and-freedom This is VERY important to clean up the program, the fraud and stop the roundups, slaughter and right to kill because the BLM is lazy about adopting
2.) #NoKill 45,000 wild horses and put them back on public land 
http://www.thepetitionsite.com/907/592/301/demand-nokill-45000-wild-horses-burros-in-holding Still valid despite BLM’s news. Legally they have the right to kill our cherished mustangs and burros. Until the law is changed and the loophole is closed we need to get them back on public land and to safety.
3.) Defund to Stop the Wild Horse and Burro Roundups and Slaughter https://www.change.org/p/defund-and-stop-the-wild-horse-burro-roundups Still valid to stop cruel roundups, unlimited sales, and killing of our native wild horses because of a loophole in the law. 
 
4.) Congress & President: Stop Slaughter & Experiments on 100,000 Wild Horses & Burros 
https://www.change.org/p/president-of-the-united-states-congress-president-stop-sterilization-slaughter-of-100-000-wild-horses-burros Even though BoLM is backing down on the sterilization surgeries, they still continue with injectable sterilization experiments–just like Dr. Mengele did.

The petitions are working so keep sharing to double the numbers and keep the pressure on. Take the cover page of the petitions with you when you go to meet with your elected officials or include them in your handwritten letters and email.

In January we offered to help adopt hundreds of wild horses and the Department of Interior blew us off

PM Oct 2014 PVC Mirror
The Honorable Sally Jewell Secretary of the Interior
U.S. Department of the Interior 1849 C Street, NW Washington, DC 20240
Friday January 29, 2016
 
RE: Official request to stop using federally protected American wild horses in cruel experiments, offer all the wild horses at the closed door Indian Lakes holding facility for adoption and provide transparency with public access, etc.
Dear Secretary Jewell,
Pregnant mares were moved Friday January 22, 2016 from Palomino Valley Center (PVC) outside of Reno to the closed door, privately owned and operated, facility called Indian Lakes aka Broken Arrow, located at 5676 Indian Lakes Road, Fallon, Nevada.
Does the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) intend on using the pregnant mares from Beatys Butte, Oregon and other herds in the horrible Nazi-type sterilization experiments in Oregon, Kentucky or elsewhere?
The Beaty’s Butte pregnant mares and members of their herd seem to have been rounded up because Country Natural Beef, a supplier of Whole Foods Market, was pushing for the roundup. Do they want the federally protected wild horses gone so they can use the public grazing land for more grass fed beef?
 
Protect Mustangs officially requests the mares from Beatys Butte, Oregon, as well as all the other wild horses (male and female) at the Indian Lakes facility, be immediately put up for adoption–not experimented on. Wild horses over 10 years old must be offered to the public as well. They are not yours to engage in animal testing. This cruelty must stop now.
 
We also request you immediately create transparency for the public, show good faith and therefore request you:
  1. Halt transporting American wild horses out of the closed door Fallon facility called Indian Lakes (aka Broken Arrow). The public wants to save all these wild horses–including the pregnant mares–through adoption or purchase.
  2. Provide all identification numbers and descriptions all the wild horses as well as a headcount of unbranded, untagged wild horses and foals at Indian Lakes as of today January 29, 2016.
  3. Provide a separate list of all identification numbers and descriptions of all the wild horses as well as a headcount of unbranded wild horses and foals at Indian Lakes from January 20 to today.
  4. Provide a list of identification numbers of all the wild horses who have transported out of Indian Lakes since January 1, 2016 and show exactly where they have gone and where they are now.
  5. Grant immediate visitation to members of Protect Mustangs, elected officials and their staff, as well as other members of the public to the closed door facility known as Indian Lakes (aka Broken Arrow) to witness, document, photograph and video all the wild horses for as many days as needed at the facility to help them get adopted in order to keep them safe from cruel experiments, dubious sales or worse.
How many wild horses have been sold or given away to be used in research projects, “studies” or experimentation since 2009? How many wild horses have been used in research projects, “studies” or experimentation since 2009 and then later offered for adoption, moved to long-term holding or sold?
Sterilization and “fertility control” experiments are cruel and unjustified
 
The BLM’s overpopulation claims are fraudulent and any action such as experimentation for population control, fertility control, or other actions taken that are based on fraudulent information is wrongful.
There are no “excess” wild horses on public land. Roundups have been based on fraudulent data. Read more about that here: http://protectmustangs.org/?p=8551
There exists no accurate head counts of America’s wild horse populations and many herd management areas have no wild horses left on them.
The BLM’s horrible customer service, lack of problem solving and poor marketing are the reasons wild horse adoption has dropped. The public wants to adopt wild horses but the BLM is making it impossible for adopters to get the wild horses they want. It’s as if the BLM wants their adoption program to fail.
Americans do not want their tax dollars funding cruel experiments reminiscent of the notorious Nazi–Dr. Joseph Mengele. The rights of American wild horses are being violated. This is animal cruelty at its worse. All wild horses–especially pregnant mares–must never be used in sterilization or other experiments.
To sum things up:
  1. There is no overpopulation of wild horses. They are underpopulated on the vast acreage of public land in the West. Even the National Academy of Sciences said in 2013 that there is “no evidence of overpopulation”.
  2. BLM’s harvesting model based management via roundups is disrupting herd structure and increasing the birthrate.
  3. BLM’s allegations of overpopulation are fraudulent based on false data. Besides no head counts, they don’t even account for the correct mortality rates in the wild for example.
  4. Predators should not be killed off and if there are none left then they need to be reintroduced for the thriving natural ecological balance for the herd management area.
  5. Wild horses are a return-native species who help reduce catastrophic wildfires, create biodiversity, etc. We need the herds to reverse desertification. Read more about native wild horses here: http://protectmustangs.org/?page_id=562
  6. The BLM is creating a false overpopulation crisis to cash in on wild horses as laboratory animals for fertility control experiments while reducing the herds to nonviable levels.
  7. GonaCon™, PZP, SpayVac® are all pesticides that classify wild horses erroneously as pests–ultimately sterilize them and are not needed because wild horses are underpopulated. There are no “excess” wild horses in America.
  8. Experimenting on wild horses to sterilize them is animal cruelty funded by tax dollars and must stop now.
  9. The BLM is trying to manage America’s wild horses to extinction.
Federally protected wild horses and burros are to be protected from harassment according to the law. You can read about the Wild and Free Roaming Horses and Burros Act of 1971 here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wild_and_Free-Roaming_Horses_and_Burros_Act_of_1971
The public is outraged the BLM, the federal agency put in charge of managing and protecting wild horses and burros, would engage in animal cruelty and try to use America’s icons of freedom in population control experiments.
Any and all experimentation, “research” or harassment of a federally protected wild horse or burro–based on the overpopulation myth, decreased adoptions or any other excuse must stop now.
Sincerely,
Anne Novak

#BREAKING: Protect Mustangs calls for nationwide protests against killing and sterilizing wild horses and burros

© 2014 Anne Novak, all rights reserved.

Protect Mustangs, a 501c3 nonprofit organization calls for protests against the Bureau of Land Management’s (BoLM) Wild Horse Advisory Board’s decision today to euthanize all the allegedly “unadoptable” wild horses in long-term holding. They also voted to push more wild horses through advertised adoption events to strike them out quicker! Under former Secretary Salazar, the BoLM has irresponsibly rounded up more wild horses than they could ever adopt out at once. Is it because Salazar is a fifth generation rancher paying back a promise to the Cattlemen’s lobby? Since then the federal agency has been hoarding America’s wild horses in captivity at huge tax-payer expense without correcting the failed adoption program. Now they want to kill the mustangs they call “unadoptable” and sterilize all the wild horses living in freedom on the range. Protect Mustangs is calling for the Bureau of Land Management to #PutThemBack on the 1971 herd areas in the West and stop sterilization. More than one-third of the herd areas have been zeroed out.

“We will fight this outrageous plan to kill and sterilize America’s icons of freedom and we will win,” states Anne Novak, executive director of Protect Mustangs. “The public is not going to tolerate this. The Bureau of Land Management is a rogue agency and their advisory board is made up of people favoring the livestock industry except for one person. The bogus board of mustang haters needs to be dismantled and recreated with wild horse and burro experts–not cattlemen with a huge conflict of interest. It’s time to put America’s wild horses and burros back on public land where they belong.”

Who are the wild horses in long-term holding? Are they mostly 3-Strike mustangs from the BoLM’s failed adoption program with rotten customer service? Others are over 10 years old and should have been left out on the range to live their lives out in peace.

The fight is on!

 

Update on Cleo April 2012: We found an adopter for Cleo but the BoLM had already shipped her out. When we told the Nevada BLM that the adopter was willing to go to long-term holding (Midwest) to get her they said that was impossible. They said they would only sell 100 horses at a time out of long term holding. The adopter could only take Cleo. The BLM said it was impossible.

Do they gain your trust then betray you?

Stop the Roundups!

Judas horse

Do they walk near wild horses often with their camera so they trust them? Then one day they shoot them with Pesticide PZP for population control–when there aren’t enough left in the wild.

Do they tell wild horse lovers that Pesticide PZP is so safe they “could drink it” when they already work for the BLM?

Was it the Emmy, the money or the politics that made them quit fighting for wild horse freedom?

First they pitched their buddies at the BLM for a Pesticide PZP Pilot Program then they switched to a position with the GonaCon® Experiment.  Why?

Since when are vegans pushing for slaughterhouse pig ovaries to be mixed into a pesticide and shot into wild mares? What kind of vegans are they?

They call themselves ‘family planners” for wild and free wild horses when they should call themselves salaried Spin Dr.s pushing pesticides and labeling wild horses “pests”–the worst thing the could have done to this native species.

We will not tolerate the lies and the back-room deals to eventually sterilize our beautiful wild horses–indigenous to this land.

They collaborate with the BLM and do not represent the horse loving people of this land that they try to fool.

Go back to your world focusing on money, power and fame. Leave our wild ones alone. We must protect them for the generations to come. . . for the keepers of the land, animals, sea, sky and stars. . . Go back to your money that cannot buy happiness, love nor peace.

Leave our wild horses alone.

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

Mr. President, Wild horses are an indigenous species who prevent wildfires

Wild horses prevent wildfires as an essential part of the thriving natural ecological balance. When the BLM removes native wild horses we see a direct increase in catastrophic wildfires.

It would be much cheaper and better for the environment to leave wild horses alone on public land. Predators exist and fill their niche if Wildlife Services would only stop killing them.

The truth is wild horses are underpopulated. Even the National Academy of Sciences said there is “no evidence” of overpopulation. Perhaps that’s why there are more wildfires.

Bands of wild horses reduce hazardous fuels in areas with varied terrain without the use of poisonous herbicides and that’s good for the environment. Dedicated federally protected wild-horse habitats cover only 11% of public land so increasing their habitat would help prevent more wildfires.

It’s time to look at wildfire prevention holistically. Wild horses should be moved back into the Tahoe Basin area to bring back the balance lost to roundups and removals. Right now there are too few left and the wildfire risk is high.

Please stop treating America’s wild horses like invasive species Mr. President. Read about native wild horses here: http://protectmustangs.org/?page_id=562  Thank you.

  1. If possible, email us! This is the fastest way to get your message to President Obama.

  3. Please include your return address on your letter as well as your envelope. If you have an email address, please consider including that as well.
  4. And finally, be sure to include the full address of the White House to make sure your message gets to us as quickly and directly as possible:

Save GAIA (#8402) beauty of the West

PM IA GAIA #8402 Carson July 2016

Elegant wild mare with at least one strike facing a second

GAIA (#8402) is available through the internet adoption only at this time. This means BoLM  could ship her out closer to you and you pick her up from the BoLM location or you can pick her up in Nevada should you be close. GAIA has spent most of her life in captivity so with love and patience you can build trust using gentle training techniques. She is sensitive and delicate with a floaty trot. GAIA is not halter-gentled. She’s untrained but with a very kind eye.

This is what the Bureau of Land Management says:

Sex: Mare Age: 4 Years   Height (in hands): 13.0

Necktag #: 8402   Date Captured: 06/10/12

Freezemark: 12618402   Signalment Key: HF1AAAAAB

Color: Bay   Captured: Jackson Mountains (NV)

Notes:

This is an untouched mare with no training.

NOTE: This mare is only available through the Internet Adoption. She is not available for advanced viewing and can not be adopted directly from the Northern Nevada Correctional Center.

This horse is currently at the Northern Nevada Correctional Center in Carson City, NV. For more information please contact Jenny Lesieutre at jlesieut@blm.gov or call 775-861-6594.

Pick up options (by appt): Palomino Valley, NV; Delta, UT; Elm Creek, NE; Pauls Valley, OK; Ewing, IL.

Other pick up options: Waterloo, IA (October 21); Unadilla, GA (November 4).

Please share her page and ask your friends to do the same so together we can find a loving home for GAIA (#8402)

Don’t let shipping hinder adopting GAIA (#8402). You have options. There are groups like Fleet of Angels who help hauling rescued horses for a low cost. GoFundMe or YouCaring are Crowd-Funding sites that can help you raise the money for GAIA’s haul to her new home in California or New York with a rescue or traditional hauler.

It’s generally cheaper to haul 2 horses so please consider adopting a second wild horse so GAIA would have a wild cousin with her forever.

America’s mustangs are going to stop being rounded up at some point soon. The Congressional sell outs to fracking, the TPP, etc. want them managed to extinction and quickly! We all saw them in action in the shamefully biased House subcomittee meeting on Wild Horses and Burros on June 22, 2016.

This is your chance to welcome a pair into your life forever and protect them from a horrible fate.

Remember sharing is caring
