BLM Abuse Case Goes Viral on Mainstream Media

A Call to Arms by R.T. Fitch ~ Author/Director of HfH Advisory Council

AP and Other Services Pick Up on BLM Cruelty

Finally, a story about the cruelty and abject inhumane behavior of the BLM has aroused the interest of America’s mainstream media machine.  We have been pounding the drum and blowing the trumpet for years and now that we have the press’ attention let’s not drop the ball.

And the list goes on and on, the world is now looking at this abomonation and people are taking note so in short it’s time kick the BLM right where it counts while they are dazed and on their knees, we need to get the agency out of the Wild Horse Harvesting and Abuse business and we need to do it now.

You folks were responsible for helping to shut down the Antelope Complex roundup by picking up the phone, clogging the faxes and over flowing inboxes, now is the time to do it again and do it with gusto.

SFTHH reader and subscriber Christy Lee put together an informative comment to our post:

“This video made me sick. That downed horse near the trench of manure–the manure must be two feet deep, if not more. .And they saw 30 down… And the BLM is currently asking Congress for an additional $12 million for summer roundups! For what, to heap more of this cruelty on the horses and burros?
We all need to get these horses out of there. HAVE AT IT and don’t get discouraged!!!
