Obama’s BLM and the Spanish have something in common: ABUSE
Spanish methods are a bit more primitive but the abusive results are the same as the BLM’s
Approximately 25,000 people were expected to attend the Rapa das Bestas (shearing of the beasts), a 400-year-old Spanish festival held between July 1 and 4.
During the event hundreds of wild horses are rounded up from the mountains of Sabucedo, Spain, before being sheered and then released back into the wilderness with a micro-chip.
Tradition sees the owners collect the horses from the land and divide them into groups before subduing the animals.
Men jump on horses in a bid to reach their chosen horses, while a team-mate grabs the tail of the chosen horse and the other man grabs the neck. Its mane and tail is then trimmed and it is tagged.
The festival has come under fire from animal rights protesters, with an online petition seeking to end the festival receiving nearly 1000 signatures.
Those opposed to the event claim the horses are “abused” and “tortured” in the process.
