Impotent Investigation Allegedly Clears BLM of Cruelty Charges
This won’t come as a surprise to anyone as a recent biased newspaper article from the Salt Lake Tribune indicates that conditions at the Utah BLM Butterfield Short Term Holding facility are “OK” and are no longer considered to be abusive and cruel to the captured wild horses held within.
With over a month to clean up the mess BLM Jared Redington and that a local Humane Society “official” says that things are just hunky-dory at the squalid concentration camp.
The article is written by one Brandon Loomis who takes a number of below the belt shots at wild horse advocates, The Cloud Foundation and Ginger Katrhrens herself. Biased and misinformed Mr. Loomis extols the BLM for what they do and allows the managing government employee full rein of the article with no comment from the opposing side. It is also obvious that Mr. Loomis made a phone call to the facility rather than taking the time to visit the location first hand.
Lisa Friday, the individual who shot the video and filed the report has not, to date, been contacted by any reporter or member of the Utah Humane Society. She was, however, contacted by the BLM who wished to interrogate her, via the telephone, while a large number of personnel were on the speaker phone call in the background. When Ms. Friday attempted to direct the BLM “investigators” to her report she was informed that she was impeding a federal investigation.
Twisted and one sided journalism such as displayed by the Salt Lake Tribune does not produce favorable or honest results for the horses nor for the campaign to stop the BLM from managing our wild horses into extinction and it must not go unnoted.
