Senator Blocks Obama’s Chief Wild Horse Hater’s Pay Raise

Ya gotta love it; you might not agree with why Louisiana Senator David Vitter is blocking former rancher, now Director of the Interior, Ken Salazar’s pay hike but you have to admire him for taking a stand and putting it all out on the table. The good Senator’s privates must clank when he walks because he sure is proving to be made of solid steel as he stands up against this current inept and do nothing administration. Vitter’s reason for denying the government’s Chief Wild Horse Hater from an increase in his salary can be summed up in one simple and to the point quote, “completely unsatisfactory” performance.

Feds say Imprisoned Wild Horses Dodged Deadly Mid-West Tornadoes

Houston, (SFTHH) – Many wild horse advocates have recently expressed concern over the safety of the unnaturally transplanted wild horses in the west being warehoused in the mid-west’s dangerous “tornado alley”. Left alone, in the wild, the horses would manage well as large numbers of tornados 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.

Scientists Demand Obama’s BLM Cease Stampeding Wild Horse Foals and Mares

As an outraged citizen I am writing you to beg for the mercy of week and
month old babies that will be the victims of the planned Round-ups starting
in July.

The BLM handbook states that round-ups should NOT be conducted during
foaling season. In July there are still mares that are heavily pregnant and
babies that are only weeks old. Even babies that are one or two months old
cannot withstand the miles and miles of running over treacherous terrain.
July is in the middle of foaling season.

You have got it right; the BLM wants to decimate the White Mountain and Little Colorado herds in Wyoming leaving only 274 horses on 1 million acres while allowing 6,000 cattle or 30,000 privately owned sheep to graze on your public lands, does that seem right, hell no!!
