Stop horsing around and ban carriages

BY , President of Coalition to Ban Horse-Drawn Carriages

Everyone from the carriage-horse industry itself to onetime anti-carriage-horse crusader Bill de Blasio may want the push to eliminate the cruel industry to go away.But that’s not going to happen.

Regardless of how many Council members say they are tired of it or how much the media mocks it, animal rights advocates’ fight to free these horses from this inhumane duty on city streets is here to stay.  Last month, a carriage overturned near Central Park, dragging the horse with it — confirming the flimsiness and danger of these conveyances. (Fortunately, no one was injured.)

Recognition of animal cruelty is the issue of the 21st century.  Barcelona recently announced it will ban horse-drawn carriages; so did Guadalajara. Montreal’s mayor supports shutting down the industry there.  Even Rome is considering electric carriage replacements.

When de Blasio ran for election in 2013, his promise to ban horse-drawn carriages was front and center.  After a fierce backlash, that didn’t happen, and the humans who profit off animal suffering now think it never will.

De Blasio has won another, and a final, four years; he doesn’t have to worry about reelection.  It’s time again to talk about the horses again.

Those who operate carriages insist, as they did before, that the animals are happy, and that all regulations are strictly enforced.

That’s just not true.

Weather restrictions are generally followed, but beyond that, few are.  These rules bar, among other things, overloading carriages to leaving horses unattended and untethered while the drivers look for business — a serious safety issue because of the nervous nature of horse, which can spook at the slightest provocation, injuring or killing himself or passersby.

The New Year’s Eve shooting death of a young burro has ignited a firestorm on social media.

According to Needles resident Eileen Sparks, the burro was found by motorists inside the town of Oatman, the victim of a gunshot. The animal appeared to be dazed, she said, and unwilling to move from the roadway. A bullet wound was clearly visible against the burro’s body.

“We were driving in for the day when we saw him,” Sparks said. “Some off-roaders had gotten out of their vehicles…the pure shock on their faces made us stop. In our eight years coming here, we’ve never seen a burro that had been shot. They were trying to get him out of the road, but he just stood there.”

Another driver contacted authorities, Sparks said, and the U.S. Bureau of Land Management dispatched a ranger to the scene. According to BLM officials, the burro’s injuries were so grave that the animal had to be euthanized.

“It’s one of the saddest things I’ve seen,” Sparks said. “My heart is broken. We need to find out who did this…I want to contribute to a reward to find out who did this.”

Sparks isn’t the only one. Oatman visitors and residents have spread the story through social media, quickly identifying the yearling as a familiar sight in the town.   Read the rest of this article HERE.

Horse Slaughter Lover “Dinky” Zinke booked government helicopters to attend D.C. events

“‘Dinky’ Zinke used taxpayer-funded vehicles from the U.S. Park Police to help accommodate his political events schedule…the Ego continues to swell…along with the head!!!” – R.T.

“I loves my dead stuffed animals, even if I didn’t kills them myself!”

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke spent more than $14,000 on government helicopters this summer to take himself and staff to and from official events near Washington, D.C., in order to accommodate his attendance at a swearing-in ceremony for his replacement in Congress and a horseback ride with Vice President Mike Pence, according to previously undisclosed official travel documents.

The travel logs, released to POLITICO via a Freedom of Information Act request, show Zinke using taxpayer-funded vehicles from the U.S. Park Police to help accommodate his political events schedule.

In a case detailed in the new documents, Zinke ordered a U.S. Park Police helicopter to take him and his chief of staff, Scott Hommel, to an emergency management exercise in Shepherdstown, W.Va., on June 21.

Zinke’s staff justified the $8,000 flight by saying official business would prevent him leaving Washington before 2 p.m., too late to make the two-hour drive to the exercise, according to the documents.

The event that prevented Zinke from leaving before 2 p.m. was the swearing-in ceremony for Rep. Greg Gianforte (R-Mont.), according to Zinke’s official Interior calendar. Gianforte, who won a special election for Zinke’s old seat in May after assaulting a reporter, contributed along with his wife $15,800 to Zinke’s two congressional campaigns.

“Secretary Zinke’s last engagement in Washington D.C. is at 2 p.m.,” an Interior staffer wrote as justification for using the helicopter. “Driving to [the West Virginia event] would not enable him to be on time and fully participate as scheduled.”

Interior defended the trips.

Former USFWS Special Agent Sam Jojola calls out Utah’s Rep. Rob Bishop and Zinke’s fake “International Wildlife Conservation Council”

The more things change, the more they stay the same

On November 8, 2017, Secretary of the Interior, Ryan Zinke, announced the creation of the International Wildlife Conservation Council.  The devil is in the details and what will follow in days, weeks and months to come will shape this Council and their priorities. Since the Council involves aspects of conservation, hunting and law enforcement, I wonder if Council heads will be selected from recognized leading experts in those three areas of focus.  I am particularly concerned how the Council will deal with the Endangered Species Act (ESA) foreign listed species and import permits that are mentioned in this press release: https://www.doi.gov/pressreleases/secretary-zinke-announces-creation-international-wildlife-conservation-council

I believe the creation of this Council comes at a very bad time given the recent news of Zimbabwe’s regime shakeup and the most recent proposal for the U.S. to lift the ban on elephant trophy imports from Zambia and Zimbabwe.  I hope now that President Trump has moved to keep the ban in place, that he and Secretary Zinke will consider keeping the ban given the current developing instability of Zimbabwe over the past several days: https://sg.news.yahoo.com/trump-puts-decision-allow-elephant-hunting-trophy-imports-hold-022152590.html

Five illegal Leopard trophies entering U.S. in 2008 detail Zimbabwe’s corruption

In 2008, sources from outside the U.S. contacted me and provided specific details about a shipment of leopard trophies entering the U.S. with fraudulent CITES permits from Zimbabwe.  I passed on my initial investigation to USFWS Special Agents in Colorado who seized the leopard trophies and completed the investigation after trophy hunters and a foreign guide were prosecuted: https://www.justice.gov/opa/pr/south-dakota-man-sentenced-smuggling-big-game-leopard-hide-united-states

There are a number of articles on the Internet that detail how widespread illegal hunting has been in Zimbabwe over the years. There are disturbing estimates of large numbers of rhinos that have been killed for years in Zimbabwe.

Google “illegal trophy hunting in Zimbabwe”

Readers will be shocked at the details of pages with disturbing accounts, estimates and reports that reflect the widespread killing of staggering numbers of elephants and rhinos over the years.

Knowing history to avoid repeating the same mistakes

To really grasp what is happening now with wildlife resources across the globe and how they are managed (and mismanaged, due to poor regulations, corruption, greed, etc.), it is very important to examine bad decisions of the past to insure these decisions are not repeated now and in the future.  One of the key documents everyone should read is from an October, 1996 posting on the website from the Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER) that consists of 29 pages, titled “Tarnished Trophies.”

Read page 9 of this report that is titled “Fish and Wildlife Safari Service.”  This “white paper” documents corruption of a high level department of U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service at that time with respect to promoting trophy hunting of threatened and endangered species: https://www.peer.org/assets/docs/whitepapers/1996_tarnished_trophies.pdf

As one of my colleagues who is a renowned former wildlife research biologist put it simply, “humanity’s DNA is seriously flawed” and we as a species can many times make the wrong decisions, particularly when managing wildlife resources now and in the future for generations.

My comments on the creation of an International Wildlife Conservation Council

On November 15, 2017, I submitted my comments to the USFWS via e-mail regarding the proposed creation of an International Wildlife Conservation Council:

  1. The proposal is a monumental waste of money due to Rep. Rob Bishop (R-Utah) who has helped push five (5) bills from the Natural Resources Committee that would conceivably dismantle the Endangered Species Act over a period of time. The ESA plays a major part of wildlife conservation. It would make more sense to form a council to fight these destructive proposals that would destroy the ESA or have the Secretary of Interior request Rep. Rob Bishop to resign. If Rep. Rob Bishop has his way to “invalidate” the ESA, imagine trying to protect wildlife and regulate hunting. Dismantling the ESA in any form or fashion is destroying large fragile ecosystems at the expense of wildlife resources for future generations.
  2. The International Wildlife Conservation Council should actually be renamed to accurately portray the proposed actions. It should be re-named “The International Wildlife Conservation, Hunting and Law Enforcement Council” which is more appropriate.
  3. One of the “duties of the Council” will be to “Recommend removal of barriers to the importation of the United States of legally hunted wildlife”. The recent lifting of the ban this month to allow trophy hunters who legally killed elephants in Zimbabwe and Zambia between 2016 and 2017 can now import those trophy elephants into the U.S. U.S. trophy hunters who legally hunt elephants in those countries in 2018 can apply for a USFWS permit and import their trophies here. This proves the implementation of this Council is without merit and unnecessary and barriers are obviously already removed without the Council in place.
  4. A Council formed to help African nations re-write wildlife laws in their respective countries would be a better proposal. Zimbabwe is a notoriously corrupt nation reportedly losing upwards of 1 billion dollars annually to corruption. Why should the U.S. allow U.S. trophy hunters to kill any wildlife in that country and allow their importation here? We are rewarding a corrupt regime. The U.S. should instead provide legal expertise and offer to help Zimbabwe and other countries re-write their wildlife laws that seal loopholes that contributed to the Cecil the Lion incident.
  5. There are already plenty of loopholes in the ESA across the board. Why constrict Special Agents and Wildlife Inspectors from doing their job to enforce regulations with additional bureaucracy?

Task Force concept needed to address transnational wildlife criminal syndicates

The U.S. should instead focus on addressing the exponential growth of the global illegal wildlife trade by improving U.S. law enforcement strategies through the formation of a task force comprised of USFWS, the FBI, IRS, ICE, DSS (State Department), the CIA, NSA, and a U.S. Special Operations group to fully address the transnational wildlife criminal syndicates that are dismantling ecosystems across the planet.

THE TRUTH #11 – The BLM authorized the adoption of a wild horse to a woman who was later charged with animal cruelty. Although the wild horse survived, the fact that this horse was subjected to animal cruelty illustrates what happens when the BLM fails to do adequate, if any, compliance checks

THE TRUTH #11 – The BLM authorized the adoption of a wild horse to a woman who was later charged with animal cruelty.  Although the wild horse survived, the fact that this horse was subjected to animal cruelty illustrates what happens when the BLM fails to do adequate, if any, compliance checks.

When looking at FOIA records regarding the fate of wild horses born in BLM holding facilities, we came across a horse (Freezemark #10183695) that the BLM approved for a Private Care and Maintenance Agreement (PMACA) adoption to someone in Loxahatchee, FL. This caught our eye because of the investigations by Richard Cuoto of Animal Rescue Mission that exposed illegal slaughter farms in Loxahatchee, FL, including Medina Farm. Luckily, this wild horse didn’t end up on Medina Farm, but we found out that the adopter, Janet Greene, was charged with animal cruelty. We have provided links to two newspaper articles, a timeline of events and BLM FOIA documents below.

Horse owner formally charged with animal cruelty (Read this article HERE.)

Janet Greene (photo: Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office)

“Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control seized 14 horses Nov. 7

…Janet E. Greene, 47, of Port St. Lucie, is charged with 13 counts of felony cruelty to animals and one misdemeanor count of unlawful abandonment or confinement of animal.

Feed bills show that 16 horses were being fed a total of 51 pounds of hay per day, well below the recommended amount of 320 pounds of hay, according a statement from Animal Care and Control Sgt. Max Sharpe.”

And we saw this article:

Woman charged with 13 counts of animal cruelty in Loxahatchee Groves horse-death case (Read this article HERE.)

“…the county’s top animal investigators said that in the span of two months, one sick horse ended up becoming two dead horses and 13 sick ones, and they placed that blame squarely on Janet Greene, the horse’s owner of record.”

Veterinary assistant Nancy Rogero, left, and animal care specialist Rosemary MacDougal care for one of 14 emaciated horses that were brought to Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control.

In reviewing the FOIA records regarding the PMACA (Private Maintenance and Care Agreement) adoption and timeline of events after the BLM turned over the horse to Janet Greene, it looks like this:

10/9/11 – Janet E. Greene fills out a BLM Application for Adoption of Wild Horse(s) or Burro(s) (undated) and on 10/9/11, BLM’s John D. Parsons authorized a Private Maintenance and Care Agreement for Wild Horse(s) or Burro(s).

11/7/12 – About thirteen months later, Janet E. Greene is arrested for animal cruelty.

3/15/13 – Over seventeen months after the adoption, the BLM case file log shows that BLM sent a title application to Janet Greene, but it was returned as undeliverable. It also notes “Talked to Mr. Green, got new address and re-mailed title app

The largest groups of wild horses I had ever seen being driven at once by helicopter

As we drove down County Road 430 toward the Colorado border, I had a sinking feeling that we were headed toward Bitter Creek Road, where 167 wild horses have already been rounded up and removed. I was initially told that no more than 200 horses would be removed from this area, that there would still be horses there. But now, since the helicopters could fly into Adobe Town at the every southern border with Colorado as well as in Salt Wells Creek from this location, that this was why we were going here.

In fact, 236 wild horses were rounded up this day, 54 for Adobe Town and 182 from Salt Wells Creek. This stunningly beautiful area is in the shadow of Kinney Rim, one of the stunning and immense formations of hills in Adobe Town and Salt Wells Creek. Just up over the rim and about 12 miles over was Eversole Ranch.

The “Judas horse” kicks out at the wild horses he has betrayed by leading them into the trap

The last few days of the roundup I was living in nervous anticipation of whether or not Judge Frudenthal would grant our Preliminary Injunction and stop the roundup at 1560 total wild horses removed until our case would be heard, or if the roundup would continue with another roughly 400 wild horses being illegally removed.

We set out to “the heart of Adobe Town” as the wild horse and burro expert described it. We went the very long way, and that morning it was a 4 hour drive made longer by a flat on one of the public’s vehicles. We finally arrived to an area a bit further into Adobe Town than I usually go. There were gas pads and the occasional gas vehicle but other than that we were alone. We passed the stunning Willow Creek Rim, and the unique and strange rock formations that are so much a part of this area. We set up at a gas pad then were told we had to move because the helicopter would be driving horses that way. We finally arrived at a small rise above a creek, and were told we needed to crouch down.

We were fairly close to the horses as they came into the trap for a change. The varied and beautiful colors of these horses were absolutely stunning, palomino, roan, dun, appaloosa and the many greys. The horses running in front of the gas pad I found rather ironic. We had come to this remote area to get wild mares for the radio collar study – they wanted to have a sampling of horses from different areas.We saw one family run by very close, the small foal running full out to keep up.                                                               READ THE REST OF THIS ARTICLE HERE.

25 foals die at BLM’s Litchfield Corrals in CA, BLM states likely cause is colitis

Preliminary results for wild horse deaths at BLM corrals

SUSANVILLE, Calif. – Preliminary veterinarian results indicate that 25 wild horse foals held at the BLM’s Litchfield Corrals may have died from colitis, or inflammation of the colon.  Additional tests are ongoing and the BLM is waiting for results from additional blood and tissue samples that could point to the cause of the colitis.

The foals, all under six months old, were awaiting adoption, when on Oct. 2 BLM wranglers noticed signs of a flu-like illness in some animals, all of which were housed in a single pen.  The wranglers consulted with a veterinarian and treated symptoms, but the condition of the foals gradually worsened over the week of Oct. 2.

The foals affected by the illness were kept in an isolated pen.  There have been no signs of illness in the other 300 mustangs in the main pastures of the corrals.

The foals were born at the corrals to mares that had been gathered last September from the Devil’s Garden Wild Horse Territory on the Modoc National Forest.

Why the Checkerboard Wild Horse Roundup in Wyoming is Personal

by Carol J. Walker, Dir. of Field Documentation for Wild Horse Freedom Federation

*Reminder* Please call your Senators this week to save our wild horses – more at the end of this blog post.

This roundup is personal. I have been following, photographing, documenting and observing the Adobe Town Herd since 2004 and have a very special connection to these horses, who live in the wildest and emptiest of lands. This roundup is personal because horses I know and have cared about for many years are being removed from their homes and are losing their families forever. Worst of all, with the vote on the 2018 Budget in the Senate looming, all of these horses that are removed could soon be facing mass killing and slaughter along with the 46,000 wild horses and burros in holding facilities.

After one of the long days of this interminable roundup, I drove in the afternoon into the area with the horses I know best because they had not yet been removed. I saw family after family, and the horses were on edge, perhaps they had heard the helicopters in the distance earlier, but i would not be surprised if they knew something was up. The horses in adobe Town tend to be more alert anyway – they are not like many herds that are used to human visitors. I will be lucky if I get to be close enough to photograph and sit for a while with any of these families.

Then as I drove on, another grey stallion caught my eye. The Adobe Town Herd has a lot of Spanish blood, and grey is a dominant color among Spanish horses, so there are a lot of greys.

As I drove on, I was hoping I would see my mustang Mica’s father and his family. I had seen them a month ago after not having seen them for two years, and I was really worried that they might be rounded up and separated. I did find them coming up the hill, and surprised them, so they ran off a bit, then turned to look at me at a comfortable (for them) distance. I spent a while with them, then reluctantly made my way toward the highway. After leaving them I saw another family with a stallion who was very alert, but they were not concerned about my presence and only moved off when a gas truck roared by.  READ THE REST OF THIS ARTICLE HERE.

Please call your Senators this week. Our wild horses are depending upon you to be their voice and save them from senseless slaughter and killing.

Call Your Senators and the Senate Appropriations Committee now -this week is it! Keep calling and faxing all members of the Senate Appropriations Committee –and particularly the members of the Subcommittee on the Interior- asking them to oppose any language allowing BLM to sell without restrictions wild horses in holding or authorizing the killing of healthy wild horses in holding or on the range as “management option”.
