Private Welfare Cattle Stay, Protected Wild Horses Go
Well they did it, we have been writing about it and forecasting an illegal and slanted decision influenced by a handful of bully, welfare rancher and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Utah Cedar City Field Office yesterday signed a Decision Record approving the proposed Bible Spring Complex Wild Horse Stampede, Removal and Fertility Treatment Plan…and not a peep about the federally protected wild horses being outnumbered by destructive, private, welfare cattle by a ratio of 10 to 1…figures from the BLM themselves.
Yup, the backwoods, half- baked, small-time politicians decided it was okay to threaten the BLM and “BAM” they get results, illegal results. Could you imagine if a wild equine advocate so much as even looked sideways at the BLM? Arresto-mundi Amigo.
How does this uncontrolled and illegally operating branch of the federal government continue to work outside the wishes of the very people who pay their salaries? Over 35,000 letters from concerned and irrate American Citizens went to the BLM office inopposition of any wild horse removal and all but a handfull were discounted while a good ole boy town council trumps up lies and junk science and they get stroked and ultimately, get everything they want?
Hats off, once again, BLM for verifying that you are in the hip pocket of grazing and special interests while you spit in the face of the people who own the very land that the wild horses and burros are legally supposed to call home.
This fight is my no means even close to being over.
