Rumor has it that during the pre-election frenzy, the Bureau of Land Management decided to kill all the wild horses in their care with any club feet or alleged defect. Yes KILL America’s mustangs who were being offered for adoption after they have been chased by helicopters in roundups, separated from their family bands, live in feedlot settings and forced to be branded, processed, then trucked around to different holding facilities.
Have they pulled them off the adoption and sale authority lists? Do the feds want to kill them instead of adopting them out or selling them to good homes or sanctuaries for $125-$25?
Who gave the order to do this? Where are they putting them now before they kill them? Will they secretly dispose of them by selling them to slaughter? Or do they want to kill them at the facilities and bury their dead bodies in pits?
Tibet is from the Divide Basin Herd in Wyoming. He had 2 Strikes and was facing his 3rd when Protect Mustangs saved him several years ago. Because his native terrain in Wyoming is different than the captive pens and different than terrain in California, he grows a lot of heel bar. If Tibet’s not trimmed regularly and correctly he starts to look like he’s getting clubbed feet. Would the Bureau of Land Management have ordered that Tibet be killed too if we had not saved him years ago with Blondie? They were both long yearlings facing their 3rd Strike back when the Bureau of Land Management was selling wild horses by the truckload for $10 a head to dispose of them.
Are they killing them now when everyone is distracted with the election?
Don’t let the Bureau of Land Management give an order to KILL all wild horses with club feet or other alleged deformities without offering them to compassionate members of the public who want to save their lives or get them to sanctuaries. The Bureau will try to sneak this by the public when no one is watching and everyone is focused on the election, the new Congress and President. Call The White House Comments: 202-456-1111. Switchboard: 202-456-1414 and call your elected officials in Congress now to request they intervene to stop the killing!
