THE TRUTH #18 – Dean Bolstad’s Information Memorandums for the Director of the BLM give an overview of the BLM’s experimentation on wild horses & burros
Below are 2 examples of an Information Memorandum for the Director sent by Dean Bolstad, then the Division Chief of the BLM’s Wild Horse & Burro Program, to the Director of the BLM. The first Information Memorandum is dated Sept. 14, 2016, and the other one is undated, but was likely issued after Jan. 1, 2016, since that was the time frame of our FOIA request.
Looking at the Sept. 14, 2016 Memorandum, #4 is “Testing a new surgical sterilization method in domestic mares: oviduct constriction via nylon ligature.” The reason the BLM is testing this at the University of Kentucky is to be able to try it on wild mares. Even though this states “In progress – but early results not promising” it looks like this testing would go into 2018 and cost taxpayers $391,000.
Did they stop this experimental procedure when the results weren’t “promising?”
#6 is testing a new sterility drug in domestic mares (again, with the goal of using this on wild mares). This experiment with Colorado State University is in progress, and to run into 2019 and cost taxpayers $798,000.
Most wild horses and burro herds are not even at genetically viable numbers, so the BLM’s sterilization experiments are frivolous.
#8 is developing and testing a new drug that targets ovarian cells. The drug uses technology from cancer treatments to target gonad tissues. This runs until 2019 at Louisiana State University and is costing taxpayers $850,000.
What is the name of this drug and can it cause sterility?
