Wild Burros

BLM’s National Wild Horse & Burro Advisory Board meeting Sept. 23-24 via Zoom Video Conferencing and live-stream

If you can stomach another perfect example of “regulatory capture,” you can watch the Bureau of Land Management’s National Wild Horse & Burro Advisory Board meeting – stacked with appointed board members favoring livestock grazing interests (not the interests of wild horses & burros on public lands).

    • I am sorry to say that the evil against our wild horses and burros will not end until the guilty fraudulent government employees are behind bars for their participation in the criminal deception intended to and resulting in financial and personal gain.

  1. “missed” seeing this – truthfully, as frustrated & angry as I am about the current political crap – dont think I can take listening to people whose only goal is getting rid of our native wild horses – who wont even LISTEN to what caring & knowledgeable people are trying to tell them. Actually, its just more of the same. As GG says – regulatory capture – GUILTY FRAUDULENT GOVERNMENT!! Got my hair cut today so dont have enough to yank on for the moment!

  2. As usual the BLM & advisory board are here to get rid of the Americans Wild Horses. The cattlemen’s lobby & backdoor arrangements are what’s driving all this. They keep getting more land for their animals so they get rid of the horses. It’s all very cut & dry. Gov. goes along, they want mining, fracking, pipe lines & every other kind of crap on Public Lands. It’s all the biggest rip off ever & the horses are paying with their lives. People don’t care Congress sure as hell doesn’t care & the BLM is sure doing their job aren’t they. I guess everyone missed the part where these are Federally Protected Horses & Burros. It must be some other Federal Gov.
