THE TRUTH #8 – The BLM’s own records indicate its plans for sterilizations and non-reproducing herds for wild horses & burros could be challenged by law

Wild Horse Freedom Federation issues THE TRUTH to share Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) documents and information with the public. Be sure to subscribe HERE to Wild Horse Freedom Federation, so that you can receive email alerts.

THE TRUTH #8 – The BLM’s own records indicate its plans for sterilizations and non-reproducing herds for wild horses & burros could be challenged by law.

Note the following “LIMITATIONS AND BARRIERS” in the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) records below, and then note the “NEEDS” in the column on the far right, where they even state they need a “clarification” in the WH & B Act to indicate that non-reproducing herds are acceptable. And that they also need a “Change to the WH & B regulations to eliminate the phrase ‘Shall be managed as self-sustaining populations.'”

There is no question that the BLM intends to manage to wild horses & burros to extinction.

Here are a few “population suppression methods” with the BLM’s comments in italics:

Regarding Non-Reproductive or Minimally Reproducing Herd“Certain litigation challenge WH & B regulation states to manage for sustainable populations. Solicitors indicate this presents gray area of uncharted waters to navigate legal challenge.”

Regarding Ovariectomy“Likely to be litigated. Challenges are presented because ovariectomies conducted in first 100 days of conception have been shown to cause spontaneous abortions. About 75% of captured mares are pregnant. Spaying is traditionally conducted in sterile surgery room on non-pregnant domestic mares, and is considered highly invasive. Has been conducted on experimental basis in field Sheldon Wildlife Refuge wild mares, but no data were recorded on mortality or rate of abortions.”

Regarding Non-Reproductive Herd Components“Certain legal challenges. Higher controversy if ovariectomy is involved. Unknown behavioral effects.”

Regarding the fertility control SpayVac“Unknown efficacy and unknown exact mechanism of action. Field trials will be litigated w/o further data from pen trials.”

THE TRUTH #4 – BLM’s Sally Spencer sold 214 wild horses to kill buyer Tom Davis AFTER an “Early Alert” email notification that Davis was suspected of selling wild horses to slaughter in Mexico

THE TRUTH #4 – BLM’s Supervisory Marketing Specialist, Sally Spencer, signed off on TWO Bills of Sales to Tom Davis, for 214 horses, AFTER receiving an “Early Alert” email informing her (and other Washington DC office BLM/DoI officials) that Tom Davis was suspected of selling wild horses to slaughter in Mexico.

Here is the “Early Alert” email dated 4/19/2012 from Deanna C. Masterson, notifying WO BLM/DOI officials, including Sally Spencer, that there was “…a Colorado Open Records Request from David Phillips, a freelance journalist, for brand inspection and transfer paperwork for horses the BLM sold to Tom Davis of La Jara, Colorado.  Phillips indicated he suspected Davis of selling these horses for slaughter in Mexico.”

THE TRUTH #1, BLM’s Sally Spencer willing to sell 10,000 wild horses to slaughter

Wild Horse Freedom Federation (WHFF) is launching a new series on our website called THE TRUTH, to share BLM Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) documents with the public.  Be sure to subscribe to the Wild Horse Freedom Federation blog on the home page of Wild Horse Freedom Federation, so that you can receive email alerts.

The Department of the Interior is currently attempting to cut the fat from its 2018 Budget by killing off up to 46,000 wild horses & burros in BLM holding facilities and even more “excess” wild horses & burros on the range.  In truth, the BLM has a long history of knowingly putting our wild horses & burros at risk for slaughter.  In The Truth #1, the BLM’s intent was not even hidden.

#1 on THE TRUTH – BLM FOIA records reveal that BLM Marketing Specialist Sally Spencer was willing to sell 10,000 wild horses to someone in Canada for slaughter, and she also suggested the need to change wording on the Bill of Sale to be able to sell to slaughter.

BLM Marketing Specialist Sally Spencer seemed all too willing to sell 10,000 wild horses for slaughter, and even suggested in an email (8/4/2008) to Don Glenn, the BLM’s Division Chief of the Wild Horse & Burro Program at that time, that if this were to happen, they’d “need to remove the following words from the Bill of Sale: Purchaser agrees not to knowingly sell or transfer ownership of any listed wild horse(s) and/or burro(s) to any person or organization with an intention to resell, trade, or give away the animal(s) for processing into commercial products.”

In another email from BLM Marketing Specialist Sally Spencer to a Canadian businessman (7/31/2008) about selling 10,000 wild horses, there were handwritten notes with the question “Have $ from sale horses be used to spare other 20,000 animals?” In other words, whomever wrote the handwritten note knew that 10,000 horses would NOT be “spared.”

Click on image to enlarge

To learn more, the late Dr. Patricia Haight filed a Freedom of Information Act request and received records that included teleconference notes between a “team” of BLM employees who talked about slaughtering wild horses. Cindy MacDonald (American Herds blog) posted these documents and you can read them HERE.

These records indicated that the BLM didn’t want scrutiny by Congress:

  • “If large numbers of animals become eligible for euthanasia at one time or at one location…euthanasia could be performed on- or off-site.””

  • Under this option, any facility could become a focal point for public, media or Congressional attention. Increased levels of security would be needed at all locations, or the activity may need to be moved off-site to a more appropriate and secure facility. Increased support from public relations and management staff would also be needed to insulate those doing the actual work from public, media and Congressional scrutiny/criticism.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Feel Good Sunday: Wild Horse & Burro Advocate Takes to Facebook Live Blinding Thousands with Glare from Bald Head

NEWS JUST IN:  Although speaking to an important issue; President of Wild Horse Freedom Federation, R.T. Fitch, took to Facebook Live, yesterday, in an effort to help support the wild horse & burro advocacy by explaining the release of their biggest lobbying tool yet, their White Paper, only to end up giving thousands of cases of mild eye fatigue due to the continuous glare from his bald head for over 30 straight minutes.

“I normally wear a hat,” R.T. said, “but being inside I did not think it would be proper so I ensured the overhead florescent light was out but I guess I just shouldn’t have discounted the effect of natural light from the window.” he continued.  “Next time I will use powder or perhaps Terry might have a make-up trick that I could use, but in reality, there is nothing like a good ole full head of hair to do the trick.” he sighed.  “That stagecoach has long ago left the station.”

When interviewed on the success of the project, VP of WHFF, Debbie Coffey, who joined the broadcast by phone commented, “I think it went very well and I welcomed the opportunity to clarify just what our White Paper is and how important it is to get in front of our legislators now, but I did take issue with one aspect of the broadcast.”  When asked what that issue was she stated, “At the end of the broadcast, R.T. stated that his Executive Producer and good friend, Roxy the Wonder Border Collie, had fallen asleep on the job, well, it would have been rather cute if he would have shared that with us.”

Well Deb, he has, if you scroll down to the bottom of this page you will find a photo of the burned out Executive Producer who says that R.T. is a difficult boss to work for and like you, he pays her peanuts.

Our guest today is Gayle Hunt, President & Founder of the Central Oregon Wild Horse Coalition (COWHC), established as a non-profit organization in 2002.
The Ochoco National Forest is seeking comments on a proposal to revise the
Ochoco Wild and Free Roaming Herd Management Plan, and sent a Scoping Letter to the public that is vague and doesn’t state the proposed Appropriate Management Level (AML), the number of wild horses and burros that will be allowed to remain on this HMA. (The current AML is 55-65 wild horses – not allowing a high enough number to be viable ).
We’re asking YOU help save these horses and send in comments to the Forest Service requesting the AML be set at a viable herd number.  In order to have a viable herd number, the Forest Service needs to set an AML of a minimum of 150-200 horses, including 50 breeding age adults.  Also, please ask for a genetically sustainable herd. The Forest Service is doing genetic augmentation, so ask them to provide the public with all research and documentation for genetic augmentation, since their management decisions have included this.
On this show you’ll learn more about how COWHC is currently trying to preserve the current 130 or so wild horses currently on the Big Summit HMA, about 30 miles east of Prineville, Oregon. Check out the COWHC facebook page HERE for the latest updates. COWHC is boots on the ground and provides one of the most accurate herd inventories in the nation, annually bringing a cadre of about 80 volunteers to count these wild horses on their turf. They also work on on-the-ground improvements like water developments, forage improvements, fence removal and other projects.
Public comments for this plan for Big Summit wild horses are due by July 21, 2017 and can be submitted by email
to BLM_NV_East_Pershing_Complex_EA@blm.gov with “East Pershing Complex Gather” in the subject line.

Questions and written comments should be directed to: Samantha Gooch, Wild Horse and Burro Specialist, BLM Humboldt River Field Office, 5100 E. Winnemucca Blvd., Winnemucca, NV 89445.

You can also submit a comment electronically at https://cara.ecosystem-management.org/Public/CommentInput?project=46228
Commenters should be aware before including their address, phone number, email address, or other personal identifying information in their comment, that their entire comment – including identifying information – may be made publicly available at any time.  While they can ask BLM in their comment to withhold personal identifying information from public review, BLM cannot guarantee that it will be able to do so.  Anonymity is not allowed for submissions from organizations or businesses and from individuals identifying themselves as representatives or officials of organizations or businesses.
