Subject: Pulling Special Needs Wild Horses From Holding and The Adoption
Program and Killing Them
Date: Thu, November 10, 2016 12:05 pm
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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
