The disturbing images of the roundup going on in eastern Nevada have upset many. We showed Nevada Congresswoman Shelley Berkley the video and she was appalled by the pilots behavior. Shelly Berkley–“I was troubled by images from the recent wild horse roundup. The Bureau of Land Management must ensure that all rules are followed during any roundup. Those who are hired to perform wild horse roundups must obey these rules and if they fail to do so, appropriate steps should be taken.”
The Wallis slaughter plant has been the subject of dozens of stories and in each it has been completely different. At first it was going to be a mobile slaughter truck that went around to various holding facilities like the Cheyenne Stock Yards (which Sue was “negotiating” to obtain). It was going to kill horses and feed the meat to prisoners and school children. The owners of the stockyards announced it would not be happening.
