_____________________________________________

Tonight, our guest will be Gail Fagan, spokesperson for Help Alberta’s Wildies (HAW), a group of concerned Canadians who have been fighting to save the remaining wild horses, called “wildies,” in Alberta, Canada.  The Alberta government’s Environment and Sustainable Resource Development (ESRD) is their equivalent of our Bureau of Land Management.

This group was founded by Darrell Glover, who flew over the eastern slopes of the Rocky Mountains and took aerial photos.  He was shocked at the loss of foals and yearlings he saw, yet last year, the Alberta government was going to capture and send to slaughter approximately 200 horses.  Glover exposed the lack of credible data by the ESRD.  The response from the public was amazing.  People volunteered, protested, camped out in -30 C weather, brought trailers full of hay, took bales on snowmobiles to the starving horses to draw them away from the traps. 5 people were arrested.  But in the end, only about 15 horses were taken.

Find out why things are so different this year, as another cull is currently taking place.  Could this happen here?

Note from Debbie – this is where you can write to tell Alberta government that you won’t be spending your tourism dollars there since they’re removing the wildies:

BLM contractor Gunnison prison caught with “hands in the cookie jar.”

While BLM spokesman Tom Gorey seemingly frets that it will “complicate national efforts to make sure there is enough off-range holding capacity for wild horses and burros that are removed off public ranges,” he failed to mention that the final report of the Department of Interior Office of Inspector General (OIG) audit of Utah Correctional Industries (UCI), in which about $2 million dollars in costs submitted (and paid with taxpayer’s money) was questioned as being seemingly illegal, was issued Sept. 27, 2013.  That’s almost a year ago.

In this report, the OIG pointed out that “we found that UCI’s accounting systems do not fully comply with the standards set forth in 43 C.F.R. § 12.60 for financial reporting, budget control, and allowable costs.”

Why did it take the BLM about 6 years to figure out something was wrong with the accounting at Gunnison prison?  And why didn’t the BLM fire this contractor (rescind the contract) last year

Basically, it was uncovered that this BLM contractor overcharged the government by about $2 million dollars.  Why is the news twisted to make it seem like Utah Correctional Industries just decided not to renew their contract with the BLM because they weren’t making enough profit?

Has the BLM even bothered to review the facility reports and mortality reports from Gunnison?  Or was the BLM only focusing on the money?  More mismanagement by the Bureau of Land Management. More

THE NEED TO TAKE A STRONG STAND AGAINST H.R. 5058: Doom for America’s Wild horses

RED ALERT
From ISPMB (International Society for the Protection of Mustangs & Burros)

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
