WASHINGTON (June 17, 2011) – The Cloud Foundation is planning a series of nationwide protests against the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM)’s decision to wipe-out two wild horse herds in southern Wyoming—using dangerous experimental sterilizations in the field. The Foundation opposes The Salalzar Initiative which includes sterilizing entire wild horse herds on the range. The initiative was introduced in Congress in 2009 and was met with fierce opposition including more than 54 members of Congress opposing the roundups entirely. On June 21st the public will protest outside the BLM statewide hearing meeting at 5:30 PM at the BLM Field Office in Rock Springs, WY.
Equine advocates around the world cheered the bumbled failure of Rep. Cynthia Lummis’ (WY) attempt to tack on an underhanded, last-minute, pro-horse slaughter amendment to the 2012 agriculture appropriations bill on June 15th, 2011. Knowledgeable citizens knew that little would be heard from Lummis after her public melt down and embarrassing withdrawal of the amendment in light of other scandalous, political news oozing out of our Nation’s capitol. (Like a politico named Weiner getting caught showing his wiener and then publicly admitting that he was/is a wiener.) But what was not known was how long it would take Lummis’ backdoor informant and supplier of incorrect data and misinformation to rear her ugly head and rant about her bloody failure and inept attempt to cram horse meat down the public’s unwilling throat; Wyoming State Rep. “Slaughterhouse” Sue Wallis did not disappoint.
