The U.S. government just rounded up 41 wild horses that were roaming public land and shipped 37 of them off to a Canadian slaughterhouse.  4 young foals were rescued are now under the care of a veterinarian in Colorado.

Over 50,000+ are now under government control.  Many of them are being held in holding pens in the American Mid-West.

Critics say this latest roundup was illegal.  The Bureau of Land Management says “regarding the 41 unauthorized domestic horses…The Bureau of Land Management had no authority over these animals under the 1971 Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act other than their removal.”  But the 1971 Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act clearly states “‘wild free-roaming horses and burros’ means all unbranded and unclaimed horses and burros on public lands of the United States.”

Jane speaks to Ginger Kathrens, the executive director of the Cloud Foundation, who saw these horses just before they were rounded up and says they were unbranded.

  4. A taxpayer travesty going on here.

    One thing not mentioned yet is that people who want to dump their horses on public lands should understand this sets a precedent for actually sending their horses to slaughter.

    Does anyone know where in Colorado these foals are now?

    • Icy a Dr. Lisa is caring for them. The Cloud Foundation is posting daily or pretty close about them. There doing well. Dr. Lisa has an older mare who will teach the foals proper horse behavior.

      I think the plan is at some point down the road they’ll be put up for adoption. But not right now.

    “However, the Wild Horse and Burro Act (WHB Act) defines a wild horses as an “unclaimed, unbranded horse on federal lands in the United States.”
    Wyoming brand inspector, Frank Barrett, verified THERE WERE NO BRANDS OF ANY KIND ON ANY OF THE ANIMALS.”

  7. The BLM is ridiculously reckless and there needs to be an independent investigation of their wrongdoing and lawless behavior,why can’t they be held accountable for their actions as a supposedly responsible government agency?
