The Nevada Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Drought Management Environmental Assessments have omitted any mention of the big water guzzling uses, like mining, oil and gas development and solar, but go into detail in an array of plans to get rid of more wild horses and livestock (which compared to these other uses, hardly use any water).

The BLM has gone all out to make the public believe that man-made causes of drought (less water and palomino-valley-captiveforage because of huge water use by extractive industries), don’t even exist. While the BLM feigns concern about severe drought in Environmental Assessments (EAs), the BLM doesn’t mention one peep about curtailing any usage of water or land by mining, oil and gas development, or solar (which can also use a lot of water) on public lands.

This is the Industrialization of the West, under the guise of “drought.”

On the BLM Nevada Drought Information webpage, the Nevada BLM Drought Handbook  mentions a few other issues, like closing roads and recreation permit stipulations.

But the BLM District Drought Management Environmental Assessments for the Ely, Elko, Winnemucca and Battle Mountain BLM Districts, all contain similar language and focus on removing and diminishing the wild horses and livestock, but NOT one word about mining, oils and gas development, or solar. The BLM has just buried this.

Below are my comments on the Ely District Drought Management Environmental Assessment.

Debbie Coffey, Director of Wild Horse Affairs, Wild Horse Freedom Federation, will co-host this show.

If you were able to view THE VIDEO POSTED BY TIM SAPPINGTON of Dexter, NM, who may no longer be employed by the Valley Meat Company in Roswell, New Mexico (which is attempting to become one of the first horse slaughter plants to re-open in the U.S. since 2007) you most likely were sickened by the sheer cruelty of Sappington’s actions.

Obviously, Sappington thought those who saw the video of him mecilessly shooting a horse in the head for no reason whatsoever, would be impressed with his self-perceived manliness.  Instead, viewers saw a coward; a weak little man with no compassion whatsoever.

Join us as we discuss the disgusting Mr. Sappington and give us your thoughts on the video and what should happen as a result.

Also:

Horse slaughter plants re-opening in the U.S, the European horse meat scandal and other issues during a special 2 hour radio broadcast.
