THE NEED TO TAKE A STRONG STAND AGAINST H.R. 5058
On July 10th, 2014, Representative, Chris Stewart (UT-R), introduced a bill to the Committee on Natural Resources which could ultimately spell doom for America’s Wild Horses and Burros. The bill is co-sponsored by Representatives Bob Bishop (UT-R) and Tom McClintock (CA-R).
On July 15th, the bill was referred to the Subcommittee on Public Lands and Environmental Regulation and is titled “Wild Horse Oversight Act.” There are 26 members on this committee of which 14 are Republicans and 12 are Democrats.
To find out if your Representative is on this committee please click here: http://naturalresources.house.gov/subcommittees/subcommittee/?SubcommitteeID=5064
Act now and write your Representative if they are on the Committee and state the following in your own words:
The Wild Horses and Burros Act (PL 92-195) became a federal law to protect America’s wild horses and burros for all Americans and future generations to enjoy. Left to the state’s control in 1971, we would have no wild horses or burros left in our country. The same holds true for today if states take control of management.
Please let us remind you that wild horses and burros can ONLY be removed if they are causing damage to their habitat and that can only be proven through monitoring of their habitat by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). This means that setting a permanent AML (appropriate management level), as BLM currently does, is arbitrary and capricious. In other words, it is illegal. More

Did BLM’s inept management of wild horses cause another 70 deaths? BLM’s press release headline states 57 died, but then in the body of the press release, they state another 13 mares had to be euthanized. 57 + 13 = 70. Why is the contractor only being informed of the proper feed AFTER so many horses died?
These were most likely the wild horses that the BLM recently shipped from Teterville Long Term Holding in Kansas to the feedlot-like facility Scott City, Kansas. 57 horses, plus the additional 13 that were in such bad shape they needed to be euthanized, are a lot of horses to die in a short period of time. Another BLM “investigation?” There is very little accountability to the public. BLM’s Press Release is below this article. The BLM is having a one day tour for CREDENTIALED MEDIA, but apparently, nobody from any wild horse advocacy groups has been invited. We request an immediate public tour of this temporary short term holding facility. Tax dollars pay for this.

“Misclassification of wild horses as a non-native species is politically, not scientifically driven,”
June 10, 2014 – Friends of Animals (FoA) and The Cloud Foundation have filed a petition with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to list North American wild horses on public lands as threatened or endangeredunder the Endangered Species Act (ESA) since the Wild Free-Roaming Horse and Burro Act (WHBA), which was passed in 1971, has failed to protect our wild horses. Six states have already lost their wild horse populations—Missouri, Iowa, Arkansas, Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas.
“Misclassification of wild horses as a non-native species is politically, not scientifically driven,” said Ginger Kathrens, executive director of The Cloud Foundation. “Wild horses are severely endangered but without recognition of current scientific evidence of their native status, they could become extinct.”

Who actually owns “public land”?
As an American citizen, environmental researcher and a life-long visitor to the state of Utah, I appreciate the opportunity to provide input on the proposed Bible Springs Complex environmental assessment. The federal government does not own land in the West. These are not “state lands” and not “federal lands” and not even “government lands”.” They are public lands. The American people own the public lands in the West and they are administered on our behalf by the national government under laws and regulations. This land belongs to all citizens of the United States, not the federal government. More

“How long does a horse have to live wild and free before it’s considered wild?”
CHEYENNE, Wyo. — The Bureau of Land Management rounded up a horse herd that roamed for decades on federal land in northwest Wyoming and handed the horses over to Wyoming officials. They, in turn, sold the herd to the highest bidder, a Canadian slaughterhouse.
Wild horse advocates are incensed, saying they should have had a chance to intercede in the March roundup and auction. But the BLM says the horses were abandoned — not wild — and that it publicized the sale beforehand.
“It would take very little to do this in a more effective way, so that horses are not just sent off to slaughter indiscriminately,” said Paula Todd King of The Cloud Foundation, a Colorado-based advocacy group.
According to the BLM, the Wyoming horses weren’t…

BLM fracking racket exposed! Armed seige and cattle theft at Bundy Ranch really about fracking leases
April 11, 2014
“The way this works, of course, is that BLM runs land theft operations by claiming they are “managing” the land and thereby kicking everyone else off it. They then invoke a reptile, an owl, a bird, a snake or some other animal which they claim to be “saving,” even while they are stealing and destroying hundreds of cattle belonging to a private rancher trying to make an honest living in a nation where productive Americans are increasingly branded “enemies of the state.”
Editors Note: This is the same BLM that rounded up the wild horses and sent them to slaughter and which continues to hunt them into extinction. We warned the cattle ranchers that this same method of eradication would be used on them when the BLM was ready. And ready they are!
The Bureau of Land Management says its 200-man armed siege of the Cliven Bundy ranch in Nevada is all about protecting an “endangered tortoise.” But a Natural News investigation has found that BLM is actually in the business of raking in millions of dollars by leasing Nevada lands to energy companies that engage in fracking operations.
This document from the Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology(1) shows significant exploratory drilling being conducted in precisely the same area where the Bundy family has been running cattle since the 1870′s. The “Gold Butte” area is indicated on the lower right corner of the document (see below), and it clearly shows numerous exploratory drilling operations have been conducted there.
What’s also clear is that oil has been found in nearby areas and possibly even within the Gold Butte area itself.
It is, of course, customary for the U.S. government to bring armed soldiers to an oil dispute. (Operation “Iraqi Freedom” for starters…) Heavily armed snipers, helicopters and militarized soldiers have never been invoked over tortoises. (Anyone who thinks this siege is about reptiles is kidding themselves.)
Here’s the map showing the oil exploration conducted on the land where Bundy runs his cattle (all the red crosshairs are oil and gas exploration drilling operations):

As the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) facilitates unprecedented “uses” on public lands that use vast amounts of water from aquifers and drop the water table, Joan Guilfoyle, BLM’s Division Chief of the Wild Horse & Burro Program, issued an information memorandum that stated because of lack of water and forage (which are man-made drought conditions caused by BLM’s mismanagement of public lands), wild horses & burros could die, and recommended that the BLM euthanize wild horses on the range.

And, at the end of this memorandum (received in a Freedom of Information Act request), in case of large scale mortality of wild horses as a result of declining water (and thus, lack of forage) Guilfoyle wants to avoid “a public spectacle.” Once again, the BLM seems to worry more about their public image than their mandate to protect the wild horses & burros.
(Note to Joan: You may want to avoid a public spectacle, but this horse has already left the barn, as all aspects of the BLM and the Wild Horse & Burro Program are increasingly under public scrutiny.)

PPJG note: As many of you know, we have fought long and hard to save America’s wild horses and burros from the harvesting for slaughter machine that is the Bureau of Land Management’s mismanagement plan for the West. The federal government, in tandem with state agencies and agents, are decimating wildlife in the Western states. They started with the killing and slaughter of our wild horses and burros, now…….they come for the bison.
Defenders of Wildlife is a national, nonprofit membership organization dedicated to the protection of all native wild animals and plants in their natural communities.

Hundreds of wild Yellowstone bison face needless deaths if Yellowstone National Park goes forward with a planned slaughter.
The killing may begin any day, and it has the potential to be the worst slaughter of wild bison since 2008, when 1,600 bison were sent to their deaths simply for roaming outside Yellowstone’s boundaries.
Defenders is pulling out all the stops to prevent this tragedy.
Yellowstone National Park officials plan to follow a long-standing agreement with Montana and capture bison that leave the park for shipment to slaughter. Though Park employees are doing the work, make no mistake that the blame for this tragedy lies with the Montana Department of Livestock, who simply won’t tolerate wild bison outside the Park or allow bison numbers to grow beyond the arbitrary number of 3,000.
The Montana ranching industry claims that letting bison wander outside the park exposes cattle to a risk for a bacterial disease called brucellosis. But in reality, there has not been a single documented case of bison transmitting the disease to cattle in Montana.
The one person who can stop it is Governor Steve Bullock, who can prevent shipment of bison across Montana’s roads to slaughterhouses, and who has ultimate authority over the Department of Livestock.
The common-sense alternative is clear: An expanded “tolerance zone” around Yellowstone National Park where bison would be allowed to roam. Yellowstone National Park, the Intertribal Buffalo Council, individual Tribes, Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks, Defenders of Wildlife and many other conservation groups support this expansion. The only agency blocking this solution is – once again – the Montana Department of Livestock. Governor Bullock must urge this rogue agency to get on board with this common-sense solution. Otherwise, any bison wandering outside the invisible borders of Yellowstone could be shipped to slaughter.
Yellowstone is home to one of the last genetically pure herds of bison left in North America. Up to 1,600 of this 4,600-strong herd could be killed under this appalling scheme, once again preventing the herd’s expansion and setting back bison restoration.
Bison are icons of the American West. Slaughtered by the millions a century ago, bison were driven to the brink of extinction. Today we have an opportunity to reverse this national wildlife tragedy. We cannot let fear and ignorance rule the day.
