“The Utah ‘Good Ole Boy’ club comes out this week with their guns a blazing as the BLM bends to the pressure of a law suit where local politicians, in the pocket of cattle ranchers, want wild horses cleared off the land so their welfare cattle can strip the range clear of any foliage. Gotta just love the mentality of the ‘Bubbas’ as most of them refer to the 6th grade as their ‘Senior Year’ and it shows.

The war against those who rightfully and legally should live free on the range are instead beleaguered and harassed by special interests and the agencies that they have in their hip pocket. The perversity of the situation is mind-boggling.” ~ R.T.
Trust lands leases = the state of Utah leasing state land (“interspersed within public lands” ) for mining, oil and gas, grazing, and commercial development. This is just one more way the BLM partners up with special interests to get rid of wild horses. – Debbie photo: […]
