THE TRUTH #30 – Details on the deaths of 54 foals and colts from the BLM’s Checkerboard roundups in Wyoming
Wild Horse Freedom Federation filed a FOIA request to find out about the deaths of all foals or colts that were 1) gathered from the “Checkerboard” area wild horse gather or, 2) were born after capture from all pregnant wild mares that were gathered from the “Checkerboard” area.
20 foals or colts that were rounded up died and another 34 foals or colts that were born in BLM facilities after roundups died, for a total of 54 deaths.
This is why it’s all the more egregious that Rob Sharp, the Supervisory Wild Horse & Burro Specialist at the BLM’s Burns Corrals in Oregon, made an arbitrary decision not to let Clare Staples of Skydog Sanctuary adopt foals or special needs horses. (Listen to Clare talk about this on Wild Horse & Burro Radio HERE.)
Of the 20 foals or colts that were rounded up that died in BLM facilites:
3 died of strangles (2 at Rock Springs and 1 at the Wyoming Honor Farm in Riverton)
2 died of fracture: leg or pelvis (1 at Rock Springs and 1 at the Wyoming Honor Farm in Riverton)
1 died of Fracture/Brain Injury: head (at Axtell)
