Mike Hudak’s video “Ranching’s Other Victims: Free-living animals”

The video below by Mike Hudak was done in 2010, but it still applies today and is worth watching.  We also recommend you go to mikehudak.com  and read his book, “Western Turf Wars.”

  1. I wish he had said there are good ranchers that practice good management of land and take excellent care of not only their cattle, but the wild life around them. I realize this is about BLM, but let’s not forget, some of us own our land, pay our taxes, and are against the evils of many ‘cowboy’ people that try to ranch and have no idea. Some of us are against the feedlots, the abuse, the giving of drugs that cattle shouldn’t have and feeding them with poisons to their systems. There are cowboys, and there are cowmen. Big difference. We are ranchers. My husband is a cowman, not a cowboy. Just wanted people to know, there are two ways of ranching, and not every rancher fits into the category he is talking about. Hi R.T. !

    Letter To The Hopefuls (excerpts)

    For too long, We the People, have been forced to look on as our representatives, officials and public servants have declared war on our Nation and our citizenry. Our Constitution, our Bill of Rights, our civil liberties and our right to meaningfully petition our government against grievances being committed against us is blatantly being subverted.

    At the inception of our Nation, great principles were laid for our foundation, igniting the Spirit of Truth in all people, that our Creator has endowed us with certain inalienable rights and among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.

    Our forefathers understood through the tyranny they had overcome, that liberty is as essential to Life as life itself and this truth must be safeguarded and protected at all costs. The greatness of our Nation can only flourish if our essential liberties and the principles for which they stand are honored with firm commitments and unwavering hearts by those chosen to uphold and declare

    It was not coincidence that the American people and our Congress overwhelmingly and unanimously acknowledged our deep and abiding connections to the horse and burro and in 1971, we set about to honor those connections by lawfully mandating their right to freedom, preservation and protection through the passage of the Wild Free-Roaming Horse & Burro Act.

    There are many that also believe it is not coincidence that the attack on the Spirit of America as a Nation is entwined with the attack on these majestic icons and symbols of our freedom, chosen because they represented our own pioneering spirit, independence, and fierce need for liberty after millenniums of enslavement.
