THE TRUTH #26 – Lest we forget: historical records of some of America’s tens of thousands of wild horses & burros that were sent to U.S. slaughterhouses.
It is important for us to remember that many tens of thousands of America’s wild horses & burros have met cruel and horrendous fates at horse slaughterhouses in Mexico and Canada (and, previously in the U.S.). Below are just some historical records of wild horses & burros sold to U.S. horse slaughterhouses Beltex, Dallas Crown and in North Platte, Nebraska (Central Nebraska Packing).
The records below are of wild horses & burros the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) adopted out, that were later “titled” (ownership given to the adopters), that ended up being sold to slaughter. These records were part of a lawsuit and were obtained by a request to the Federal Records Center. We also included an interesting letter by attorneys Howard Crystal and Eric Glitzenstein, of the law firm Meyer & Glitzenstein.
The USDA’s Forest Service has started a roundup of 1,000 wild horses in Devil’s Garden Wild Horse Territory in the Modoc National Forest in northern California. The Forest Service will sell older wild horses for only $1. The Forest Service should know that many of these wild horses will end up in the slaughter pipeline. The Forest Service is also going to microchip these horses. Without the usual freezemark number on each horse’s neck to identify it as a wild horse, the Forest Service is making it easier to sell and ship these wild horses to slaughter.
Each number you see below represents an American icon that met a horrific fate. We will not forget.
