Our guest on Saturday evening will be Clare Staples, Founder and Pres. of Skydog Sanctuary Skydog Sanctuary has locations in Malibu and Mariposa, California as well as a 9000 acre ranch near Bend, Oregon.
After being rounded up and removed from public lands by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), a wild mare recently gave birth to twins in BLM corrals at Burns, OR. The statistics about any mare conceiving twins is 1 in 10,000 and the chances of those babies being born healthy and growing to term, and the mother surviving, is nothing short of MIRACULOUS. One foal was a little weaker and frailer, and the BLM staff thought the foals would do best with extra supplements, good alfalfa, minerals and access to vet care to make sure they were in the best health and would survive. Clare flew up to Oregon to see the mare and foals, and arrangements were made for her to pick them up and bring them to Skydog Sanctuary for the extra TLC and vet care.
But then there was a “glitch.” The mama mare is on the list for an upcoming BLM “spay study” (using an archaic and barbaric spaying procedure on wild mares). So the BLM decided not to let the mare be adopted out or sold. Instead, the BLM decided that her babies would be taken away from her and her ovaries would pulled out.
We’re going to give you a lot of important information and let you know what YOU can do to help, including contacting your Congressional representative to complain about this bad BLM management decision. Please help spread the word and share a link to this on your social media.
