In a deposition that Dave Cattoor, of Cattoor Livestock Roundup, gave in a legal case (you can read this deposition HERE), it was revealed that one of two Cattoor Livestock trucks transporting wild horses from the Canon City prison in Colorado to Nashville, TN, was involved in an accident on May 1, 2013, near Lamar, CO. The Cattoor truck had broken down and was hooked up to a “wrecker” when the accident occured.
When asked what ever happened to the horses, Dave stated:
“Two of them got knocked out in the accident. When the truck hit the back, it tore off the back end of the trailer and two of them flipped out on the back, on the pavement, and our big deal was to get the back tied together, and that’s what I was doing, that’s what I was doing when the Highway Patrol showed up.”
“Two of them — one of them they finally retrieved unhurt, and they never seen the other one again.”
Since the BLM picked up the rest of the truckload of wild horses to take them back to Canon City prison, we’re left to wonder 1) why the BLM doesn’t report these types of incidents to the public, and, 2) if the BLM ever found the wild horse that got away.
