Independent Review Too Late for Wild Horses and Burros?
Moratorium on roundups must accompany National Academy of Sciences review
Colorado Springs, CO (August 27, 2010)— The Cloud Foundation fully supports the independent review of the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) mismanagement of America’s Wild Horses and Burros by the National Academy of Sciences (NAS), but only if it is coupled with an immediate moratorium on all wild horse and burro roundups. 54 members of Congress requested both the review and an immediate moratorium in a letter sent to Secretary of Interior Salazar on July 31, 2010. Each herd is an integral part of the ecosystem and without a moratorium there will be few genetically viable herds on Western lands in left to study. The NAS review of the flawed Wild Horse and Burro program is scheduled to begin in 2011 and last two years, but at the current rage BLM will have removed tens of thousands more mustangs from their legally designated ranges in 10 western states by then. In just this fiscal year alone, BLM has removed nearly 12,000 wild horses and burros, most warehoused at taxpayer expense.  More

This week we will be discussing S. 510 – especially the sections dealing with Codex Alimentarius and enforcement. More than 60% of the bill deals with fines, fees, penalties and other revenue raisers. Additonal licenses and copious record keeping will be the cause of many small operators leaving the agricultural field. Excessive regulations, licenses, requirements, and other barriers to entry, will prevent next generation farmers and ranchers from entering agricultural fields.

This is an open mike night and we invite you to call in with questions or comments.
