Our guest is Carol Walker, Dir. of Field Documentation for Wild Horse Freedom Federation.
The Bureau of Land Management is planning to remove all wild horses from Checkerboard lands in three of the largest remaining herds in Wyoming: Great Divide Basin, Salt Wells Creek, and Adobe Town. This roundup is catering to the Rock Springs Grazing Association, whose members own or lease the private land parcels in the Checkerboard and graze their livestock on the public lands through grazing leases in over 2 million acres. The BLM is ignoring the fact that over half the land in the Checkerboard is public land, belonging to all of the citizens in the United States. BLM Rock Springs Field Manager Kimberlee Foster publicly states: “For all intents and purposes, we consider all of the checkerboard private.”
Even though the BLM rounded up with helicopters and removed 1261 wild horses from this area only two years ago, they are now planning to remove at least 500 wild horses this fall. While this is going on, an appeal was filed in the 10th Circuit Court by AWHPC, the Cloud Foundation, Carol Walker, Director of Field Documentation for Wild Horse Freedom Federation and photographer Kimerlee Curyl, and oral arguments for the case will be heard in September.
This show will be hosted by Debbie Coffey, V.P. & Dir. of Wild Horse Affairs for Wild Horse Freedom Federation.
