Protests Planned Against Obama Administration Sterilizing Free Roaming Wild Horses

Press Release from The Cloud Foundation

Americans protest home-on-the-range die out

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.

“American wild horses —the native species that is also protected under the 1971 Wild Horse and Burro Act —must be protected from being brutally sterilized and left on the range to die-out,” states Ginger Kathrens, Executive Director of The Cloud Foundation. “Americans across the nation will be protesting the government agency’s heinous decision to manage wild horses to extinction.”

Wyoming is a hotbed state for the extractive industry including oil and natural gas. Public lands are facing a historic threat of industrialization which will destroy the West forever. 

Additional protests are being planned in California and other states. Check the Foundation website for updates.

  1. Is there a way that the names of those who can not attend be carried into the meeting and displayed for a show of support?

  2. Good idea Barbara..Petition too a good idea. Today is the 17th not too much time to
    get a lot of signatures. How about protesting in front of a local office in your state or
    area. Groups could also protest in front of their Legislators office. All of these people
    are supposed to be working for us, the American people. I tried several times to call the
    BLM in DC and they must have shut their phones off. You couldn’t even leave a voice
    message. I know the last time there was a protest in DC it did get coverage. People who
    owned mustangs brought them and they surrounded the capital. I guess its time for
    something like that again. I don’t know who the sponsor was. I feel for those of you from
    Wyoming because you have a LOOSE CANNON representing you in Congress. I am
    totally appaulled that these morons would do such procedures in the desert. They have
    absolutely NO business gelding these stallions. I bet that they would get their rocks off
    by trapping and gelding the most intelligent and stately stallion. How about catching one
    of the knife weilding fellows and preform the Lorana Bobbett procedure like she did to her
    husband. In other words lets geld some of these fellows! They really much be a bunch
    of sick people…I just keep calling my Legislators, protesting their actions. In my email
    I suggested that they call one or a number of large animal vets in our area and present
    the question to them on the safety of the procedure for the stallions. I know the mares
    would be off the charts..not one vet in my area would consider doing this surgical
    procedure. The stallions should not be gelded for the genetics of the lines could be
    lost forever. I know all of us will continue to call, email, write and fax. Good luck to all
    of you who are able to present at the protest..You know you have the support of so many
    of us. Too bad there wasn’t a way to do some type of skype so more people could
    participate. Again, good luck and I will thinking about all of you..

  3. The madness of it all is beyond disturbing! And that so few of those elected to REPRESENT us have the gumption to stand up against the atrocities that BLM is hell-bent on doing is very alarming!
    EVERYONE must take decisive action – and plenty of it – if we are to ensure that BLM will NEVER harm, kill, roundup, terrorize, brutalize or sterilize another horse or burro.
    Spread the word, stay the course, and keep the prayers going up, so we can see victory in behalf of the horses and burros.

  4. I pray that the protest turns out massive. The goal of this BLM isto eradicate the wild horse population; this is based on greed and use of land by corporations and oil, plus mineral seeking companies from as far as Canada… I am certain..this is a great evil.
    I hope and prya grea success and a change in the management of BLM.. Salazar is on the take,, he has to be..he is NOT supporting the wild horse population.. SHAME SHAME SHAME on these wolves in sheep clothing!

    • YOU ARE SO RIGHT, THEY HAVE NO MORALS AND WE HAVE A BEE HIVE OF MORE OF THEM IN THE WHITEHOUSE. THE TAKING OF AMERICAN PROTECTED LANDS MUST STOP NOW BEFORE THEY DESTROY EVERY PART OF THIS WONDERFUL COUNTRY WE LIVE IN, KEEP SENDING LETTERS, PHOTOS, ETC TO OUT ELECTED OFFICIAL. WE PAY THEIR INCOME AND THEY ALSO GET EXTRAS FROM LOBBIEST WHO SPEND MILLIONS EACH YEAR TRYING TO GET THEIR PRODUCT PASSED. IT IS SO IMMORAL WHEN BIG PHARMA GET TO PASS A DRUG THAT ISN’T SAFE FOR ANY ANIMA LET ALONE HUMAN CONSUMPTION,. MONEY TALKS, THE MORONS SOMETIMES LET THESE DRUGS PASS AND MANY DIE, THEY KNEW ALL LONG THAT THIS WOULD HAPPEN AND PUSHED IT ANYWAY SO THAT THEY CAN MAKE BIG BUCK.S, TEN THEY HAVE TO TAKE IT OFF THE MARKET, NO ONE IS REPREMANDED. NO ONE KNOWS WHO DID ALL THIS, ALL BEHIND CLOSED DOORS LIKE THE BLM WHO KEEPS PEOPLE FROM PHOTOGRAPHING THOSE POOR FOALS AND MARES. THE STALLIONS TOO SHOULD NOT BE CASTRATED MAKING THEM LOTS FOREVER IN A VERY SHORT AMOUNT OF TIME AND ALL FOR THE LOVE OF MONEY. THEY ARE CRUEL TO SAY THE LEAST. REMEMBER TO KEEP HAUNTING THE GOVT. AND REMIND THEM THAT ELECTION TIME IS NEAR.

  5. Salazar is another Hitler, hell bent on destroying what ever is on four legs and I find it ironic that this also comes on the heals of senator Lummis embarrassing bill and Sue Wallace right behind her supporting this terrorist plot against our four legged friends. These two are truly in the dark ages. As far as Salazar is concerned he should be removed with a petition to remove from agency permantly.

  6. It has always been about the big money! I can hardly bare the thought of another roundup. It breaks my heart to know what is in store for the wild horses. I sometimes feel like screaming. How can the BLM go against the masses and do as they please. We have a law and some of us have morals but yet we feel some what helpless in protecting these icons. The BLM bends the rules and we are suppose to swallow it. I disslike myself for the loath and I guess hate of people like Slaughterhouse Sue she sickens me.

    • ARE WE BECOMING A COUNTRY WITH NO MORALS AND THINK IT IS OK TO SLAUGHTER ANIMALS IN A CRUDE FASHION, ARE WE LOOKING THE OTHER WAY AS MARES ABORT DURING A RUN FOR THEIR LIVES? DOES THE CONGRESS HAVE THE AUTHORITY TO FIX THIS PROBLEM BY FIRING THESE PEOPLE FOR WHAT THEY DO? OF CORSE THEY CAN BUT THEY ARE DRAGGING THEIR FEET. I HAVE WRITTING TO THE WHITEHOUSE MANY TIMES. YOU CAN NOT GET THROUGH BECAUSE OF ALL THE PHONE CALLS PROTESTING THIS BLATANT HORRENDOUS UNDERTAKING BY THE BLM. THEY SHOULD BE IN JAIL., THEY ARE NOT DOING THEIR JOB OF PROTECTING, BUT ARE USING THE BEST ANIMALS TO TAKE TO SLAUGHTER, IF ANYONE IS NEW TO HIS KNOWLEDGE, PLEASE WRITE YOUR CONGRESS AND TELL THEN HOW ANGRY YOU ARE,. ALSO SEND PHOTOS, I DID AND I HOPE BY NOW THAT THEY REALIZE WE MEAN BUSINESS,. NO WONDER PEOPLE GO INTO PLACES AND SHOOT OTHERS OUT OF ANGER, THEY CAN NO LONGER CONTAIN IT, OUT COUNTRY CAN BE GREAT AGAIN, BUT OUR ADMINISTRATION HAS A ONE TRACK MIND AND THAT IS TO STEAL FROM THE WORKING PUBLIC. THANKS TO ALL WHO HAVE DONE THEIR PART AND BLUDGEONED CONGRESS WITH LETTERS, LOL
