Decision Announced for Jackson Mountains Enforcement Plan

The Proposed Action has been selected, effective immediately, and implementation can begin once funding and holding space become available.

The decision authorizes the removal of excess horses from lands in and around the HMA over a ten-year period and the use of various fertility control techniques to maintain the population within AML, according to today’s news release.

Birth rates would be limited by PZP, GonaCon, sex ratio skewing and sterilization per Section 2.2 of the Final EA.

The HMA intersects six grazing allotments, identified in Section 3.3.3, and livestock receive approximately three times more forage than the horses.  The new enforcement plan will assure that this ratio is maintained over the life of the project.

The Decision Record and Final EA were posted with other project documents.

The decision is subject to a 30-day appeal period.

Giving Foals a Chance at Life

A woman in Eastern Washington rescues wild foals from reservations such as Yakama, Colville and White Swan, and places them into new homes, according to a report posted today by FOX13 News in Seattle.

She expects more horses to be turned loose due to rising hay prices.

Statements in the story that may pique your interest:

  • The foals have been separated from their family bands in Central and Eastern Washington, where officials said the wild horse population is growing too large
  • The Bureau of Land Management controls the population of wild horses on state land through sterilization injections
  • Babies are roped and hog-tied during roundups, and they can be left that way for a significant amount of time until they get back to a trailer
  • Some orphans are purchased by horse traders who contact volunteers to rehabilitate them and when they get a home, they get their money

There are no HMAs or WHTs in Washington state.  What’s going on here?

Western Horse Watchers offers the following explanation, subject to further research:

Native peoples in Washington state are rounding up wild horses and shipping them to slaughter.  Pregnant mares drop their foals in feedlots while awaiting transfer.

The foals are rescued by non-profits that quietly carry out their work without pointing a finger at tribal leadership or their contractors.

If they were to speak publicly about the arrangement, the deal would be over and the foals would be lost because they have little or no value to the kill buyers.

Uvalde Aftermath: Abortion Still #1 Killer of Children

Would the one-horse pony travel to Texas if the victims were white?

As expected, liberals are using the incident to further their political agenda, which has always included the separation of you from your guns, as seen today on Drudge.

Uvalde Aftermath on Drudge 05-30-22

They want you subjugated to an all-powerful centralized government, the antithesis of the American founding.  And they’re willing to destroy the economy and your standard of living to achieve it.

If you won’t go along with their plan they’ll call you a racist, homophobe, misogynist or other pejorative.  That’s how they get their commie-pinko-fag candidates into office.

You fall for the ploy because you do not know Truth.

Pay no attention to their propaganda and never give up your guns.

Will Virginia Range Volunteers Be Elevated to Sainthood?

Normally the process is reserved for the deceased but in darting circles their accomplishments are unprecedented.

  • Nancy Killian
  • Steve Paige
  • Tamera Gertdz
  • Elena Sullivan

Each has delivered over one thousand doses of PZP to mustangs on the Virginia Range, according to the author of “Wild Horse Tales” in the May edition of Horse Tales.

As a result, injuries are easier to find than youngsters.

Pine Nut Advocates Not Playing for Home Team

The article in the May edition of Horse Tales gives the herd size.  What else do we know about the Pine Nut Herd Area?

  • Identified for wild horses in 1971
  • AML is zero
  • Managed principally for livestock
  • Could support over 200 wild horses
  • Current population less than 90
  • Subject to Montana Solution
  • Herd dying off

Looks like the advocates are trying to protect the ranchers, not the horses.

Still Not Convinced That the Advocates Are Frauds?

The mask is off.  The article titled “Wild Horse Tales” in the May edition of Horse Tales reveals their glorious plan, starting on page six.

No sensible person can look at what they’re doing to the horses and call it protection.

  • Promotion of overpopulation narrative
  • Silence about permitted grazing
  • Acceptance of rangeland mismanagement
  • Collaboration with bureaucrats and ranchers
  • Silence about resource availability and apportionment
  • Obsession with Montana Solution
  • Dismissal of principles in original statute

If you think these people are protecting wild horses then you probably think the Uvalde shooter was protecting kids.

Don’t forget your “Stay Wild” cap.

Rock Springs RMP Protests Still Trickling In

Cañon City Incident, Day 35

A foal was lost on May 26, according to the sitrep for the week ending May 27.

The count for Day 1 was changed from ten to nine, dropping a foal that was originally thought to be part of the outbreak.

That leaves the total at 145.

All fatalities have occurred in pens occupied by the West Douglas horses, displaced from their home range by privately owned livestock.

Approximately 17% were foals.

Previous reports were posted to the Colorado HMA page.

Findings from an internal audit have been released to the public.

Older Horses Should Be Allowed to Die Where Born

As for the youngsters, they shouldn’t be allowed at all.

The real estate agent and PZP darter in Minden/Gardnerville area is back with another column about the Montana Solution in this month’s edition of Horse Tales.

A perfect topic for Foal-Free Friday, starting on page six.

This charlatan praises the work of the Campaign Against America’s Wild Horses and Wild Horse Eradication, who spend your hard-earned donations on useless endeavors.

She points to the 60,000 animals in off-range holding, and the associated costs, but does not say a word about the cattle and sheep occupying their home range.

A few miles to the north, the advocate identifies four others who have fired over one thousand doses each of PZP into the Virginia Range herd.

She’s proud of their accomplishments.

The article concludes with some remarks about roundups—that don’t work according to the monster-in-charge at CAAWH.

They are very effective, you idiot, at shifting resources from wild horses to privately owned livestock, the same thing you and your foot soldiers are trying to achieve with the Montana Solution.

The herds will never bounce back if they have their way, assuring ranching superiority in areas set aside for the horses.

These people are lowbrows, stooges for the public-lands ranchers.

Cañon City Audit Yields Ten Major Findings

On May 20, a BLM team compared current practices at the facility, where 145 wild horses from the West Douglas Herd Area have died, to applicable standards in the Comprehensive Animal Welfare Program, noting 13 deficiencies.

Ten were classified as major.

Overall compliance was 83%.

The findings, presented in a report dated May 24, include:

  • Inadequate staff
  • Poor maintenance
  • Safety hazards
  • Substandard fencing
  • Stallions mixed with mares
  • Lack of vaccinations

The team, which cannot be described as independent, offered several recommendations to improve compliance.

Their goal is to take a larger share of the wild horse removal business by convincing the bureaucrats, ranchers and politicians that the Montana Solution is a viable alternative to helicopter roundups.

And they need more of your hard-earned donations to make the plan a success.
