BLM shamelessly blames the deaths of 2 foals during roundups on “capture shock”

7 Comments

This is a wild family in the Green Mountain Herd in Wyoming. For the past three days the BLM has been chasing hundreds of horses with helicopters and rounding them up and yesterday two foals died of what the contractor calls “capture shock.” 

Here’s the BLM’s story in their Gather Reports:  “Summary: BLM euthanized a captured horse with a pre-existing condition. Two colts were treated for capture shock during sorting at the holding corral. One colt died shortly after being treated and the other died while being transferred to the veterinary hospital in Lander”

Here’s our opinion:  It was very hot.  These foals likely ran as hard as they could to keep up with their mothers while being chased by a helicopter.  The BLM ran them to death.  So while the BLM attempts to put lipstick on a pig by blaming the deaths of the foals on “capture shock,” we place the blame directly where it belongs – on the BLM.
If the foals were treated, where are the vet reports?   

This is so cruel and unnecessary – the forage and water is in great shape in Wyoming.

Conference Call for Pipeline Fighters, landowners and #NoKXL activists

1 Comment


 

Bold Nebraska has organized a conference call for Pipeline Fighters, landowners and #NoKXL activists this Thursday evening, July 13th, to discuss the final public hearing on Keystone XL scheduled for July 26th at the Ralston Arena in Omaha, the Aug. 6th “March to Give Keystone XL the Boot” in Lincoln, and the upcoming week of intervenor proceedings at the Public Service Commission Aug. 7-11.

Dial in to join us at 6:00 p.m. CT on Thursday for a Keystone XL conference call update from Bold’s Jane Kleeb.

We have outnumbered the pro-KXL supporters by 3-1 or more at the recent public hearings on Keystone XL, and it’s critical that we turn out in full force for this final Public Service Commission meeting on July 26th in Omaha.

This is your last chance to speak out on the record against Keystone XL — as the “intervenor” proceedings in August will be open to the public to attend and observe, but no public testimony will be taken during that week.

Mark your calendar: Make plans now to join us on Sunday, August 6th in Lincoln for the “March to Give Keystone XL the Boot.More
