BLM planning for non-viable wild horse herds in Wyoming

Be sure to read the BLM’s scoping notice HERE.
Notice that the numbers for all HMAs but one are far less than the 130-150BREEDING AGE ADULTS that Equine Geneticist Dr. Gus Cothran states is needed for a VIABLE HERD.  AND, as a special bonus to developers gobbling up the dirt cheap oil & gas leases on these HMAs, not only will the BLM leave horses at the low AML (a non-viable number) they also plan to give fertility control to the mares.  BLM continues to manage to extinction.
BLM Seeks Input on Proposed Wild Horse Gather in North Lander Complex
The Bureau of Land Management Lander Field Office is requesting public input prior to analyzing a
proposed wild horse gather in the North Lander Wild Horse Complex.
The North Lander Complex is located in southeast Fremont County and is made up of the Conant Creek, Dishpan Butte, Muskrat Basin and Rock Creek Mountain herd management areas.
Population surveys conducted in August 2016 found approximately 1,026 horses within the
North Lander Complex.  The appropriate management level (AML) of the complex, which is the
population that can be supported by the public land in balance with other multiple uses of those lands,
is 320-535 horses.
The proposed operation would include gathering wild horses and conducting fertility control treatments to
bring the population of the complex back to its AML.  The anticipated date of the gather has not yet been
determined.
Public input is valuable early in the process and will enable the BLM to develop a well-informed
environmental assessment.  Comments should be received by January 31, 2017, and may be emailed to
WY_North_Lander_Gather@blm.gov or mailed to Clay Stott, BLM Lander Field Office, 1335 Main
Street, Lander, WY 82520.
Before including your address, phone number, email address or other personal identifying information in
your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment – including your personal identifying
information – may be made publicly available at any time. While you can ask us in your comment to
withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be
able to do so.

    Plaintiff,
    v.
    Ken Salazar, et al.,
    Defendants,

    DECLARATION OF LLOYD EISENHAUER
    I, Lloyd Eisenhauer, declare as follows:

    12. Turning the White Mountain HMA into a non-reproducing herd, as the agreement between BLM and RSGA proposes to do, is also a farce, and violates the meaning of a wild and free-roaming animal. This is essentially a slow-motion zeroing out of this HMA, and is inconsistent with any wild horse management approach I am familiar with that BLM has implemented on public lands.

    Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1746, I declare under penalty of perjury that the foregoing is true and correct.
    Lloyd Eisenhauer

  2. Here are just a few of the recent BLM herd statistics that show fraudulent population increases for these four herd areas.
    Conant Creek
    Total herd population of 60 wild horses had 60 surviving foals = 100% increase in ONE year.
    Dishpan Butte
    Total herd population of 60 wild horses had 82 surviving foals = 137% increase in ONE year.
    Another year the total herd population of 50 wild horses had 105 surviving foals = 210% increase in ONE year.
    Muskrat
    Total herd population of 160 wild horses had 199 surviving foals = 124% increase in ONE year.
    Rock Creek
    One year BLM showed a 58% increase in ONE year and 68% increase in ONE year.

  3. More fraudulent BLM population data:
    Per the BLM annual herd statistics (which of course we know are incorrect and inflated and not scientifically supportable to start with) these four HMAs had a combined population of 669 wild horses in March of 2016 and yet BLM states that within six months that population had jumped to 1026 = a 53% increase!

    What is a Sociopath Liar?
    A sociopath is typically defined as someone who lies incessantly to get their way and does so with little concern for others. A sociopath is often goal-oriented (i.e., lying is focused—it is done to get one’s way). Sociopaths have little regard or respect for the truth. Sociopaths are often charming and charismatic, but they use their talented social skills in manipulative and self-centered ways.
