The BLM grazing allotment attached to the Spruce Ranch, which she owns, was the site of a wild horse shooting last year. Like the Heber wild horse shootings, no arrests have been made in the case.
It’s a reunion of miscreants and malcontents in the wild horse world, many of them signatories to—or cheerleaders of—the wild horse management plan announced on 04/22/19: public-lands ranchers, beef producers and their allies in government.
How many advocacy groups were invited? You know, the ones who actually care about the horses?
Probably none. (Many of them are fraudulent anyway, preferring to see wild horse numbers decline through application of contraceptives.)
So of course you’ll hear the conference billed as a success, a win-win, with so much common ground, when in reality it’s a cesspit of greed and deceit sponsored by the cattlemen and their overlords.
The BLM released fourteen wild horses today into an area burned by the Soda Fire in 2015, the first of three such groups to be returned to the HMA. Refer to this report by KTVB News of Boise. Includes video.

UPDATE: Added video by IDFarmBureau. Note the reference at 1:44 to the ‘allotment.’
A representative of the Heber Wild Horses Freedom Preservation Alliance said yesterday in a letter to the White Mountain Independent that the investigative process was “slow and lackadaisical,” noting that in the latest incident, documented by a photographer, the Forest Service never even bothered to go out to the scene to interview the witness or suspect.
How many wild horses have been hunted down and killed by oil companies?
How many wild horses have been shipped to slaughter by mining companies?
How many wild horse herds have been wiped out by timber companies?
But the ranchers have done all of these things and more, with the blessing of your precious government.
The system that came through on 05/26/19 brought snow and freezing temperatures to the higher elevations in the west, more like what you’d expect in November.
