A main water source in the southern part of Sand Wash – Corona and family drinking 2 weeks ago – now dry

Our guest tonight is Carol Walker, Dir. of Field Documentation for Wild Horse Freedom Federation.  In just a couple of days, public comments are due for a 10 year plan by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) that will result in the removal of 580 wild horses from the Sand Wash Basin Herd Management Area (HMA) in Colorado.  The original Environmental Assessment (EA) was written in 2016, and instead of doing a proper revised EA or new Scoping, the BLM is only issuing a “Decision of NEPA Adequacy.”  This is likely a violation of the NEPA process.  The horses would be safer left in their HMA and managed there while Congress is deciding the fate of all wild horses and burros.

Also, the terrible drought has dried up much of the water in the Sand Wash Basin, so a volunteer group has raised money and is prepared to haul water to the horses.  At first the BLM said the Colorado state office had to approve this, but now it is being kicked to the Washington DC office.  While the bureaucratic wheels grind slowly, the wild horses will suffer.  Carol will talk about the actions you can take to help save these wild horses.

This show will be hosted by Debbie Coffey (V.P. and Dir. of Wild Horse Affairs) of Wild Horse Freedom Federation.

    • Gov. Hickenlooper is term limited and out this fall. Jared Polis is favorable towards supporting wild horses, and especially the Sand Wash.

      Senator Bennet has also been generally favorable, Garnder unresponsive, Tipton MIA but will face a fierce contest this year.

  2. Colorado Senator Cory Gardner

    Gardner Receives Commitment from Interior Secretary Zinke on Canyons of the Ancients National Monument
    Today, during an Energy and Natural Resources Committee hearing, Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO) received assurances from Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke that Canyons of the Ancients National Monument is not currently on the Department’s priority review list.

    Gardner has been a strong advocate for protecting Colorado’s public lands, and recently received the Outdoor Industry Association’s 2017 Friend of the Outdoor Industry Award. In May, Gardner and Congressman Scott Tipton (CO-3) sent a letter to Secretary Zinke requesting “any review of Canyons should conclude that no changes to the designation are necessary.”
