Action Alert / California Gathers

1,800 Wild Horses Targeted For California Roundup - Public Comments Needed, Every Comment Helps

Our voices are making a difference for America's wild horses, and now is the time to keep up the pressure! We told you this would be a long, difficult fight - and we are the horses' only hope. Please take action below and send this alert to at least three friends or family members. It's critical that we grow our grassroots efforts on behalf of these magnificent horses.

In the last two months, after receiving well over ten thousand public comments in opposition, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has postponed two scheduled wild horse roundups in Utah's Confusion Mountains Complex and eastern Nevada's Eagle Herd Management Area.

And on February 5, 2010, the BLM halted -- several weeks early and 500 horses short of its 2,432 horse removal goal - the intensely controversial Calico Mountains Complex wild horse roundup. So far we know at least 49 horses have lost their lives due to the helicopter stampede and capture at Calico and an additional 25-30 pregnant mares spontaneously aborted. Equine veterinary experts dispute the BLM's claim that the miscarriages were due to poor nutritional condition of the mares, citing the stress and trauma of the roundup and capture as a more likely cause. As a result of calls, letters and emails from concerned citizens, 700 free-living mustangs in Utah and Nevada have, for now, been spared the sad fate that has befallen the Calico horses.

Now we need you to act again to oppose the massive removal of more than 1,800 wild horses from the Twin Peaks Herd Management Area (HMA) in California.

Foal Aggressively Attacked by BLM/Cattoor Helicopter during Calico Wild Horse Round-up


Cattor -convicted hwild horse thieves & slaughterers chopper hunting for our Wild Horses

Acclaimed artist and videotographer Laura Leigh has released a devastating video of a young foal aggressively and dangerously “pushed” and attacked by a Bureau of Land Management (BLM) contractor’s helicopter during the much contested Calico Wild Horse round-up.

After a terrifying 15 mile chase over volcanic rock, ice and snow the small foal had difficulty keeping up with it’s family and was continually terrorized by the Cattoor’s helicopter at an alarmingly close and dangerous range.

Additional footage shows one foal limping in the BLM pens while another, which is on the ground, was reported to have died due to having it’s young “hooves run off” by the Cattoor helicopters.

This is documented evidence of the out of control and deadly behavior of the Obama administration’s Bureau of Land Management.

Please forward this video to the President, the First Lady, the Vice President and every single one of your elected representatives. Our “animal friendly” administration needs to be held fully accountable for supporting known animal abusers within it’s organization.

Warning if you understand, love and/or care about animals you will find this footage to be extremely unsettling.

Hold a hearing or investigate BLM's management of America's wild horses and burros and tell the BLM to stop rounding up and killing or removing our wild horses and burros or selling them for slaughter and return them to the lands where they were living in 1971.

CALIFORNIA WILD HORSES UNDER ATTACK NEXT

BLM / F& G / US WILDLIFE SERVICE / US DEPT. AGRICULTURE SLAUGHTERING IMPRISONING HORSES AGAINST WILL OF AMERICAN PEOPLE. BLM/CONVICTED HORSE KILLERS - RUN DOWN AND KILL WILD CALICO COLT:


We demand the inhuman brutal unnecessary wild horse round ups stop now ! We need our wild horses protected NOW from the BLM liars -it is unacceptable for this brutal corrupt agency that only serves the interests of the cattle industry to continue their brutal abuse and genocide of the horses they were supposed to be protecting. We demand our horses be protected now and that the BLM be held accountable for the brutal abuse and genocide of our wild horses!

I have to tell the BLM - we are not all idiots here in America and they will be held accountable for their lies and brutal abuse and murder of our wild horses and their criminal acts and destruction of our public lands, water and wildlife.. The BLM are corrupt liars who only serve the cattle industry. The BLM IS RESPONSIBLE FOR BRUTALLY ABUSING WILD HORSES and SENDING TENS of THOUSANDS OF AMERICANS BELOVED WILD HORSES TO SLAUGHTER AGAINST THEIR SWORN DUTY TO PROTECT AMERICAS HORSES. They lie to the American people and to congress and then steal land set aside for horses and other wildlife and put their privately welfare owned cattle on our public lands.They are thieving lying thugs and need to be prosecuted and put on prison.
