Save Our Wild Horses From an Agency Gone Rogue
The Bureau of Land Management has thrown out their wish list of the latest wild horse herds they want to destroy in their Path to Devastation. The Sand Wash Basin Herd in Colorado. The 5 largest herds in Wyoming in the Checkerboard, the North Lander Complex Herds in Wyoming. They have included their favorite dangerous and deadly experimental tools of sterilization such as spaying and using IUDs in mares in their Scoping and Environmental Assessment Plans.

Adobe Town, Salt Wells Creek, Great Divide Basin, White Mountain, Little Colorado in Wyoming:
North Lander Complex in Wyoming:
The BLM is an out of control rogue agency who must be stopped and stood against by the members of American public who care about our wild horses. What can you do to help? Comment against these horrific plans by the deadline. I will be posting talking points you can use next week. The deadline for comments are April 30, 2021.These three plans will involve removing over 6000 wild horses. The Bureau of Land Management is not even allowing the public to see the over 1200 wild horses at Canon City, Colorado that were removed last fall in the Red Desert Complex Roundup, let alone adopt them. Yet they are eagerly setting up plans to remove thousands more this summer and fall.
ACT NOW – Write, call and contact in any way you can your Senators and Representatives.

Get the word out far and wide. This must not stand. We want our wild horses managed humanely on our public lands where they belong.
BLM WELFARE RANCHERS TRY ACTING WITH THE HIGHEST AND BEST MOTIVES. THINK OF YOUR ACTIONS AND THE DAMAGE YOU CAUSE.
Thank you, Carol! This is very urgent and an immediate change that is permament and beneficial for the wild horses is required. I just mailed the President and have earlier contacted Rep. Deb Haaland and different BLM offices.
We have to keep on fighting until this situation is resolved. Spread the word and stick together!
Stop distroying wild horse herds!!
My answer as a tax payer is NO. I don’t agree with the BLM plan. I don’t agree to trade wild horses and burros that already exist and live healthy happy lives on OUR land for cows and sheep so that certain groups of people make money. How do you explain moving wild horses and burros from a healthy state and putting them in an unhealthy environment that ultimately leafs to their death. So I say NO! I say STOP! We need to be heard and the horses and burros need to be saved.
Our Wild Horses deserve to be free. Just like we enjoy our Freedom in this Country. They shouldn’t be rounded up & sent to slaughter. Please lets stop the inhumanity towards these magnificent creatures.
We need an immediate moratorium against the BLM/USFS! They have been mis-handling their duties to protect our wild horses since the 1970’s as well as killing natural predators keeping wild herds in check! Let Nature take care of Her own. She’s excellent at it!!
The BLM plans are utterly defiant and despicable. They cater to the most selfish and arrogant, uncharitable people who are so blind to America’s wonderful wild horses and only thinking of their petty minded possessions, power and control! This must absolutely stop! We had a rally of ca. 50 people in front of the national headquarters of the BLM in Grand Junction, Colorado, on Monday the 29th of March, that was very energetic and got an excellent response from those who witnessed it and significant positive media coverage on television and newspaper. Many are so disgusted with the status quo and want to see the unruly elements on our public lands curbed for the sake of the future of America’s wonderful wild horses and burros and of our nation and world itself (meaning the life of this world).
This is the comment I made on RT Fitch’s blog yesterday:
The use of PZP has made no difference to the BLM’s “schedule” of roundups – if anything, they are rounding up MORE horses than ever. Look at the current roundup schedule! They want to spend the next 10 (!) years doing these roundups – thousands of horses taken off the range. The only numbers we are given are the BLM’s guesstimates – we only have their word ! that there are many thousands of wild horses still out there. And as Mr. Bauer said – the numbers fluctuate as in any wild herd. It doesnt take a genius to know that wild predators keep prey animals in check – thats how nature works. Removing the grazing allotments from herd management areas and herd areas & putting Wild horses back in the ones that have been “zeroed out” – sure would be worth a try. The roundups & warehousing dont work. And as for the idiotic idea of spaying mares? Thats just downright stupid.
I hope & pray that Deb Haaland has input into the Wild Horse & Burro “program”. To be honest, hearing that the new deputy head of the BLM is a former Audobon and Wilderness Society employee doesnt fill me with excitement.
This is a disgrace. Wild horses are a part of American history. I wish they being BLM would leave the dam horses alone. Sterilization should be done in a humane way.
This world is a mess due to a lack of compassion for others and animals.
I have written my senators and encourage others to do so as well. If anyone can donate money to the cause of protecting the wild horses please do so.
I believe their is a place in heaven where the wild horses roam free and unbothered.
Please Stop the Roundups and removals Leave our wildhorses and burros alone. They have earned the right to live wild and free on their lands. They need to be protected as it states. That is not being done.
