      • Miss Abby it isn’t just the donkeys in Bonaire it’s this ugly mentality of killing everything. BLM did another secret round up and sent 41 horses to their deaths.

        How can WE THE PEOPLE stop this insane madness?

  1. What is wrong with people now days! Why exterminate ANYTHING! It’s happening each and everyday and every place you look now! It’s only been just a few years since every person’s life depended upon such animals and now they want to kill them all! Outrageous! I’ll be listening and praying.

  2. EXCELLENT show. It sounds as though the people of Bonaire also need a voice…or they need their voices to be heard. They have been getting pushed around too. As Rona said, they love these Burros. The Burros are part of their country’s heritage and THAT belongs to them.

  3. OK, people, there is *one* way to stop the slaughter once & for all;

    GO VEGETARIAN !!!

    Seriously, the cattle industry is clearly driven only by greed and the BLM have prostituted themselves & sold their souls.
    So as long as the ranchers are calling the shots, things will only get worse & soon it will be too late to do anything about it.
    You *don’t* need meat to live ! But animals and our precious, *limited* natural resources *do* need us to change our ways NOW!
    So hit ’em where it hurts ! In the wallet ! Maybe then the BLM will take this seriously.
    If that doesn’t shake them up, might I suggest a class action suit on behalf of the American people against BLM?

    “If our only motivation for not eating animal foods is our own health, it’s easy to “cheat” a little here and there and pretty soon go back to eating them again. When our motivation is based on compassion, it is deep and lasting, because we understand that our actions have direct consequences on others who are vulnerable.”
    ~ Dr. Will Tuttle
