In 2010, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) gave the green light to the expansion of a mining project within the Triple B Herd Management Area (HMA) in Nevada, even knowing about mercury in the watershed and higher levels of arsenic in the surface water. Since grazing allotments seem to be in the hydrographic basin with “mercury deposition contributions to the watershed,” this would seem to put human food and health at risk. The BLM turned a blind eye and approved this project, and now they’re falling all over themselves to declare there’s not enough water for the wild horses because of “drought” and they now plan to waste taxpayer dollars on water trapping, and later helicopter roundups, to remove the wild horses.
“Wild Horses & Renegades” will premiere Sunday, July 1 (8 pm ET/PT), on Documentary Channel with an encore airing at 11pm ET/8 pm PT! Other special encores include Friday, July 13 (8 pm ET) and again the same night at 11 pm ET
