The BLM’s Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Board is currently comprised of many publicly avowed horse slaughter proponents, who at prior meetings and during other public venues, have stated that the “proper” way to manage wild horses is to send them to slaughter. Although BLM management denies any link to slaughter associations, a recent investigation by PPJ Investigative Reporter Debbie Coffey revealed a BLM long term holding facility contractor sold BLM wild horses directly to kill buyer Joe Simon, and another journalist revealed that Tom Davis purchased over 1,700 wild horses and burros from the BLM and no longer knows where they are.
Debbie Coffey, Director of Wild Horse Affairs for Wild Horse Freedom Federation, will join us after the press conference ends to give us an update on wild horse and public land issues.
