Listen to the archived show Here!
(Click on the word “HERE” above, to be linked to the show) 1 hour show. We won’t be taking calls during the show.
Tonight, our guest will be Gail Fagan, spokesperson for Help Alberta’s Wildies (HAW), a group of concerned Canadians who have been fighting to save the remaining wild horses, called “wildies,” in Alberta, Canada. The Alberta government’s Environment and Sustainable Resource Development (ESRD) is their equivalent of our Bureau of Land Management.
This group was founded by Darrell Glover, who flew over the eastern slopes of the Rocky Mountains and took aerial photos. He was shocked at the loss of foals and yearlings he saw, yet last year, the Alberta government was going to capture and send to slaughter approximately 200 horses. Glover exposed the lack of credible data by the ESRD. The response from the public was amazing. People volunteered, protested, camped out in -30 C weather, brought trailers full of hay, took bales on snowmobiles to the starving horses to draw them away from the traps. 5 people were arrested. But in the end, only about 15 horses were taken.
Find out why things are so different this year, as another cull is currently taking place. Could this happen here?
Keep up with Help Alberta’s Wildies latest news on their facebook page.
an additional note from Debbie _ this is where you can write to the Alberta government to let them know you won’t be spending your tourism dollars there since they are removing the wildies:
Tonight’s radio show will be hosted by Debbie Coffey, V.P. of Wild Horse Freedom Federation
