One thought on “Beatys Butte Roundup Day 42

  1. The completely corporate captured puppets of the BLM continue to send our PROTECTED Wild Horses to holding & slaughter so a few psychotic cowpokes can make millions in tax dollars from the blood, life and land of our horses. It’s deplorable that our own govt continues to pay these monsters to do this.
