7 ‘federallyprotected’ American Mustangs have died on Day 1 (Saturday, July 10) of the Tuscarora Roundup in Nevada. BLM has suspended the roundup at least until Wednesday. They continue not let any public or independent observers watch or be present at this roundup. These horses died due to dehydration from being run an unknown distance in 90-deg. plus heat. BLM press release online here – this is irresponsible and cruel mismanagement of a globally-signigicant and historic wild species– the wild horses of the American West.

Please call Secretary Salazar and demand that he stop the tax-payer funded disaster in Tuscarora before more mustangs are killed.

  1. Yes, agree – MURDERERS!!!!!!!!

    By not allowing observers they leave us to follow all prvious behavior of BLM – to lie. I believe the horses are and were find on the range and BLM ran them to dath. They have no way to disprove this since they did not allow observers.

    Anyway, have they never heard of helicopters with troughs full of water for fire fighting? And where are all the fences and all the existing water for al the cattle?

    I used to wonder why Bing maps has no flyover maps of Nevada – now I know why.

  2. They plan on rounding up 1100 horses over 3 weeks. Yet, on the first day, in just 2.5 hours, before 9 AM in the morning, they had already gathered 228. They had gathered almost 3-4 days of their gather goal in just 2.5 hours. In 90 degree heat. What does that tell you?

    This round up sounds absolutely brutal. They are driving these horses too hard, too fast and too far. I think we can assume no foals will not be able to survive this. I wonder how many foals collapsed on the range on the way in? This doesn’t sound like “extreme caution” that Mr. Overcast said would be exercised. Sounds like extreme negligence to me.

    And why did they go exploring after the deaths to see what the condition of the water was out there? Shouldn’t this be done BEFORE the round up? Why do we pay these fools?

    According to the BLM, these horses are all in 4-5 condition. Until the Cattoors and BLM got to them.

  3. OMG!!!!

    …just ’til Wednesday? WTH?@! Is the helicopter broke? Because they sure ain’t stoppin’ to wee-wee if it comes down to whackin’ equines. The trolls get paid by the head. BTW…can anyone imagine what these noble animals have been going through before these sites. God Bless Annie and she didn’t even have the internet!

    Can someone find a way to contact the mainstream media????? This is just so wrong.

    HEY…WWP, Sierra, Audubon, etc! Where are you??? Together we stand and fight; divided we die….and so does the wildlife, the environment and us.

    Shame on some of you that blame equines in an attempt to get your piece of western pie. Shame on those of you are protecting your piece of pie without recognizing the contribution wild equines and speaking out on their behalf.

  4. RT…could you please put up the White House switchboard?

    Talking to the head equine whacker, Gulf polluter in charge is like emailing or texting a blind date that doesn’t show up and asking “where are ya'” or a fiance that bows out of the wedding without contacting you the night before the wedding.

    I was always told ….”don’t spit or tinkle into the wind”.

  5. WWP signed on for a moratorium on the roundups. The Sierra Club and Audubon Sociery are against wild horses and call them feral.
    Where is the HSUS I’d like to know? Of course HSUS suppies the BLM with PZP so I guess they don’t want to go against them.
    IMO these horses were run to death and died of heat stokes. There is no excuse for such cruelty and charges should be brought against those responsible.

    • The “birders and granolas” appear to have tunnel vision. If they do ANYTHING in conjunction with DOI….they will be eventually SCREWED!

      WWP is another matter, yet intelligent and intriguing. God bless them, they beat DOI and some states REPEATEDLY!!!!

      Thanks for the info Barbara.

      The important part is that some environ groups don’t realize what the methodology of the DOI/Feds/States is and so pervasive, that eventually, without challenge to their (DOI) lack of science, corruption, cruelty and incompetence all will soon be eaten up.

      You can pay me now or you can pay me later…but not at the expense of my wild equines, wolves, bison, grasslands, fishes, Gulf…etc.

    • HSUS doesn’t do anything without knowing it’s a sure thing, they will win or it can put coin in the cash register.

      Having said that, they have done many good things regarding legislation (not agressive enough for me, but…) and have realized that they are not putting enough into real time rescues, recovery ops, seizures, etc.

      They are changing and yet consistent in many ways via my experience.

      I’d rather have HSUS than the Unwanted Horse Coalition or Wallis/Doinkettes Group discussing anything animal; however, they seem more concerned about their accounts and donations versus the cause.

  6. 8 horses have actually died, they noticed the horses were “drawn up” why didn’t all the “experts” have enough sense to limit their water?
