Behind Bars and Fences Wild Horses Cannot Run for Cover
Houston, (SFTHH) – Many wild horse advocates have recently expressed concern over the safety of the unnaturally transplanted wild horses of the west being warehoused in the mid-west’s infamous “tornado alley”. Left alone, in the wild, the horses would manage well as large numbers of tornadoes are not known to frequent the arid western United States plus the horses know to stay out of the way of trouble. But thanks to the mismanagement of Obama’s Bureau of Land Management (BLM) our federally protected wild horses and burros are inhumanely stampeded by helicopters, captured and then shipped off to the mid-west where they are forced to live out their lives eating an unfamiliar forage and separated from their families while living in same sex herds.
So true to form investigative reporter and outspoken wild horse advocate Debbie Coffey grabbed the bull by the horns and composed an email to BLM honcho Dean Bolstad inquiring as to the safety of our imprisoned national icons.
“Hi Dean, I have been watching the news about tornadoes in the Midwest, especially Oklahoma, and was wondering if any of our wild horses have been injured or killed at any short term facilities, maintenance facilities or long term holding pasture facilities because of the tornadoes.
Have you received any reports regarding any/all facilities and any injuries or deaths of wild horses due to the tornadoes?
I’m assuming that even if a tornado were nearby, it could make a lot of noise and spook the horses, possibly causing injuries or deaths. Could you please find out and let me know any information regarding this?
To his credit Bolstad replied in a matter of minutes to the inquiry:
“I do not know of any issues and I’d have heard about it unless something occurred late this afternoon or evening. However, I’ve asked one of our staff in Oklahoma to respond since she is local and near most of these facilities.
Thanks for your concern,
Let’s hope that what was reported is in fact the case and we will keep our fingers crossed that the wild horses being held outside of their rightful land will remain safe even though their lives of freedom have forever been destroyed.
