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.

  2. When is this removal planned (any actual dates?), and why is it that it can be even allowed when there are legal cases pending? Recall this happened last time, the roundups were held and a couple of months later the BLM was found in violation, but the horses lost their homes and lives. If the case is to be heard in September, all planned activities removing horses from their rightful homelands should be illegal until after the case is decided. Closing the barn door after the horses are gone, as we well know, accomplishes nothing, and never did.

  5. Using the acreage that was congressionally designated to WH&B at the time of the 1971 act of approximately 53.3 million acres (42M BLM managed) and using BLM’s own maximum 240 acres per horse per year (half of this usage per burro) statement the WH&B legally designated land could today accommodate 222,083 wild horses and burros (WH&B) although anyone with any basic wildlife science training would know, with other wildlife and with natural predators on those lands the WH&B population would self-stabilize on their legal Herd Area acreage and never come close to that total. “Report to Congress Regarding the WH&B Program, BLM, US DOI: Refuting FY 2011 Budget Justification”, C. Bowers, L. Peeples, C.R. MacDonald.
