BLM: Bureau of Land MISmanagement

wild horses

So by now you have probably heard about the BLM acting like cattle rustlers and running scared when a patriot and his friends showed up to draw a line in the sand.

Well, when the Bureau of Land Management isn’t busy cattle rustling and nearly murdering a man’s family they are busy slaughtering wild horses.

Now, the management part of the BLM is to round up strays and try to find them homes and if not, then they can be sold to slaughter.  But WILD Horses are actually protected by FEDERAL LAW…namely the Wild-Free Roaming Horses and Burro Act of 1971, which bans wild horses to being sold for slaughter.

But much like how the BLM tries to stamp out the freedom loving American spirit in it’s citizens whose land they covet, so too do they seem to want to stamp out the wild spirit of the American West.  Namely by killing all the wild horses so their job can be easier.

What cockamamie excuse could the BLM possibly come up with that would justify them slaughtering wild horses in willful disregard to the law?   Remember, the BLM tried to run a man off his land and rustled his cattle under the pretense of protecting turtles.

The excuse the BLM came up this time would be laughable if it wasn’t so asinine and a slap in the face to reason and logic.

BLM spokeswoman Sarah Beckwith said: “Nobody had a permit to have these horses grazing on public lands.”

You see, the herd originated from stray rodeo horses around 1970.  But I can guarentee you that NONE of those stray horses were still alive during this round up and trip to the glue factory.  How many generations and years have to go by before a roaming herd of horses can be considered wild?

Remember, the horse is not a native species to this continent and the wild herds we have are descended from Spanish horses 300 years ago.  So is the BLM just going to round all the horses up and sell them for slaughter?

For over 40 years a herd of horses were born, lived, mated and died without ever being saddled, bridled or broken.  Yet the BLM claims that they aren’t wild horses.  The Bureau apparently is willing to profess any lie in the pursuit of expediency for their agenda.

This is what men like Cliven Bundy and others out in the west where the BLM hold a disproportionate amount of sway, have to deal with.  I wish them all the best in fighting the good fight against governmental tyranny and idiocy.

This is what government run amok looks like…little bureaus going around trying to wrangle in nature itself.

Let not the actions of the BLM be a metaphor for big government…let not the spirit of America die by the whims of the petty bureaucrats.

The heart of the West deserves better…and so does America as a whole.

    I wondered when there would be a story covering this topic. The BLM has for years paid professional hunters to shoot and kill wild horses from helicopters. I’ve been telling people about this for years! Now it’s news. Why can’t these horses be captured instead of slaughtered? It does not make since to pay some to do a job that American are willing to do. I mean if you had tags for catching wild horses. You would bring money instead of paying absorbent amounts to kill the horses!

    • Bullets First

      Mark, great points. It’s a shame that bureaucrats seek out the most expedient method of dealing with an issue. The result being a herd of wild horses is slaughtered. This isn’t the first time either, unfortunately I fear it will not be the last until people realize what is going on out west.

      Rest assured mark, your voice has not gone unheard and I am happy to join mine to it in order to save the wild horses of the west.

      • patriotgirl

        Amen!

    • Margaret

      BLM has been doing roundups for years. Currently there are some 50,000 wild horses and burros both in short term and long term holding.

      The contractors who conduct the roundups are paid 300-600 dollars per horse.

      All of this at taxpayer expense.

      • freedomringsforall

        It is a shame the wild horses don’t seem to have a democrat voting block in love with them (kind of like the unborn) otherwise this liberal/commie/Marxist/dictatorial administration might spare some of them.

        Yes because of you Margaret and those like you who run on emotion rather than common sense.

    • Wondering Woman

      Obviously the goal of the BLM and the EPA is to kill off most, if not all living creatures on the planet. They are so brainwashed that they cannot see that they are interfering with our Creator’s plan for keeping the Universe running the way it was intended. They need to wake up and realize that it has existed for aeons, just the way he planned it.
      Sure hope that some of you saw the video where the scientist said he had learned that he was wrong in following what the scientists were saying and being a party to wiping our thousands of elephants to save Planet Earth. He said he now carries the burden of this massive slaughter because he had learned from working in the field that what he was told was wrong. It was not animal feces, urine, or farts that turned lush forests into wastelands and deserts – it was the lack of them, because he had learned that the animal feces and urine was necessary to compost the vegetation waste and replenish the soil. Yet these criminals keep on spouting their lies, while destroying the planet.
      They refuse to believe that the Creator of the planets and universe knows more about how to keep it working than they do. Or is the truth that they know exactly how wrong they are and deliberately working to destroy all living things on the surface of the earth, while they hide in those underground cities awaiting recovery of the planet to resurface?

      • patriotgirl

        And it didn’t take a rocket scientist to figure that out!! I fear all things being done to our planet is out of sheer greed. Money means power. And think, all these same people want World Goverment. Hah…like they can even get along.

          Read up on the One World Government and Agenda 21. They would eventually require about a 2/3 reduction in world population, a situation that has already begun in the forms of genetically engineered food seed, weaponized viruses, chemical weapons, and of course nukes. A very short time before it all comes to pass. Check out the recent news concerning the new strains of Mersa and Eboli presently making their way out of Africa and already affecting people in Italy, soon Europe, and then the world. Very nasty ways to die, and pretty much unstoppable.

    • Henry L

      Why can’t we just leave all this to private enterprise. If there are too many horses some enterprising individual will find a way to make money with them, provided government does not have its nose stuck in something they know nothing about. But no, our government must regulate everything, so now we pay taxes to pay for a bunch of armed bureaucrats to get involved. What a waste of money.

      • CrustyOldGeezer

        What a waste or Freedoms and Liberties.

        That would require “Progressives”, i.e. the “Left”, to give up control. Remember, the underlying principle of the “Left” is “Supremacy of the State and those in control of the State”.

      The bigger question is WHY? The horses must infringe on land that Dirty Harry wants for his next big money scheme. Why doesn’t Congress do something about this guy? After all, the FBI is going after Wendy Davis ( eating their own) and the Democrat in Republican clothes in NY for fraud and abuse of power. There is no greater abusers of power in Congress than Dirty Harry.

      And THEN do what with the horses captured? There isn’t that great of a demand for them.

      • mark

        The demand is there! You obviously don’t know any people who own ranches. I do in Montana and Alabama. They would be more than happy to buy healthy horses at auction. Un fortunately some would be bought for food. People in Europe eat horses. The horses that are sick and cannot not be saved should be put down. humanely.

      • crowvet

        The BLM shouldn’t be the ones rounding up the horses it should be the individual states ridding the open range of thes mongral horses.

  • But WHY?

    Thanks to Amendment 5 of the federal Constitution and its establishment of eminent domain, leading to the appropriation (theft) of private land turned into public land, and the Constitutional Republic’s
    insidious property taxes, every square inch of land in America is owned by the government of the Constitutional Republic (something impossible under Biblical law, see Exodus 19:5, Psalm 24:1, Leviticus 25:23) and therefore the Bundys and the protesters ultimately don’t have standing in this situation. Appealing to the Constitution or the Bill of Rights in this and similar situations is the epitome or irony!

    For more, see online Chapter 14 “Amendment 5: Constitutional vs. Biblical Judicial
    Protection” of “Bible Law vs. the United States Constitution: The Christian Perspective” at http://www.bibleversusconstitution.org/BlvcOnline/biblelaw-constitutionalism-pt14.html.

    • DRLJR

      Keep in mind the U.S. Constitution has been regularly distorted and misused. Especially in regards to eminent domain.

      • DRLJR, thank you for responding.

        Yes, it has. However, don’t overlook that had the framers actually established government and society upon Yahweh’s immutable morality as codified in His triune moral law (His commandments, statutes, and judgments), we wouldn’t have a Biblically incompatible Constitution to be abused in the first place. (See “Bible Law vs. the United States Constitution: The Christian Perspective” at link above.)

        In other words, what we have today is the fulfillment of Hosea 8:7: We’re reaping the whirlwind (the abuse in many instances) of the wind originally sowed by the framers. For a better idea of what I’m talking about, see “America’s Hell: Paved With Rights” at http://www.constitutionmythbusters.org/americas-hell-paved-with-rights/.

    Actually the horse is a returned native species. Even the fossil records indicate this. But cows? Nope!, they were brought to this land from Europe.

    Where I have a problem is cattle ranchers who won’t share resources. They want it all for their cows. I have issues with cattle ranchers WHO DONT PAY THEIR GRAZING FEES CAUSE THEY THINK THEIR PACKAGE IS SO SPECIAL, who control the government cause their all in bed with each other.

      • WrinkledThought

        Research and read the Supreme Court cases on that topic, especially the recent Wayne Hage case. The range forage and water does NOT belong to the government, it belongs to the ranch allotment owner. The horses are feral non-indigenous species that are destroying the range and eating for free. The government has consistently refused to pay the ranchers for any of that. The ranchers should be allowed to round them up and sell them to the meat markets in Canada and Mexico to pay for what they eat and drink.

    • chamuiel

      The grazing fees were originally intended to help maintain the land, roads, improve water supplies, etc.

      The grazing fees were never intended to buy out ranchers, nor to be used by environmentalist groups to protect the desert tortoise.

      I see you prefer to have people pay the grazing fees, even though they are now being used for illegal activities.

      amazing how you support criminal activities.

      Ignore them Margaret. Whenever these radical community activists get on these forums, they act like know-it-alls and bombard you with their “facts.” The best way to handle them is to lol.

      • Margaret

        No kidding! If it weren’t so serious I’d be laughing. But many innocent horses are at risk. Federally protected animals.

        • CrustyOldGeezer

          just the phrase “federally protected” is cause for alarm.

        • crowvet

          Then do something about how the range can be improved to accomadate a population of horses and cows. Land can only support so much livestock. The horses have to be managed. People like you have let the ranges be destroyed by over population of horses. you are responsible for the slaughter of horses.

          • Margaret

            What a freaking load of cow and sheep poop. There are less than 20,000 wild horses out there. Horses are outnumbered by cows as much as 200 to 1. And sheep numbers are worse.

            I’m responsible for horse slaughter? Cow poop. When BLM themselves did a SECRET roundup, turned those horses over to the WY livestock and allowed those horses to be sold for slaughter! A nice lady pulled 4 foals from a couple days old to a few weeks old and they were rescued. Their moms however were sent to slaughter.

            Follow the trail of slaughter and you see folks who want slaughter act EXACTLY like Nazis did in WWII.

          • crowvet

            Yes Margret and chamuiel
            It is over the top bleeding hearts and the and the enviromentalists that have caused this range disaster. All of those stray horses should have been removed years ago. The Taylor grazing act supported the range lands for the raising of cattle. now you Idiots have bullied the government into using the grazing fees to support your over zealous horse disaster. The cattleman looses the idiots cant manage. Go see the Keiger horses if you want to see wild horses. The stray horses you can have. I hope you have alot of property. That way the cattle ranches don’t have to listen to your crap;

          • crowvet

            The Nazis slaughtered wild horses ????

          • crowvet

            yes Margaret and chamuiel you are responsible for the over population of unmanaged stray horses on BLM land. Plus your freeloading because groups and people like you don’t contribute any funding for the care of these over populated horses. The Rancher takes the brunt for your ignorant strive to protect horses that aren’t yours.

          • chamuiel

            To make improvemenst to the land. That is what the grazing fees were supposed to be used for. When they were not, that is why Bundy quit paying them to the Federal Government. Trolls do not seem to understand this.

    • crowvet

    Where’s PETA?

    • patriotgirl

      Good question Linda. I asked myself the same question regarding the killing and inhumane treatment of Bundy’s cattle.

      • lindajoyadams

        Never heard of a legally done eviction of livestock for any land being handled such. The judge orders make arrangements for removal if the owner doesn’t come get them. Called due process. That’s when I knew something was wrong and began paying more attn. to the situation. The courts ruled in favor of rancher Bundy is what I have gathered and that means the fed just have to do the appeal if they don’t like it and in a few years the US Supreme court might hear the case? we do have the rule of law in this nation or used to. any news media got a copy of the court decision since its public? If rent is owed, then how many head of cattle get taken and sold to pay the rent? Sounds like BLM destroyed the rent money, if money is owed. But many things are grandfathered in is what I have garnered. I think the local people do know and they seem to be in rancher Bundy’s favor. Many owe debts right now they may not be aware of as govt contractors have stolen medicare claims ism and id of patents and a lot of money and so far Social security has not implemented their 2005 agreement to do these kinds of waiver requests for patients or their estates . This is one against equity and good consciences and YOU DO NOT GIVE PERSONAL FINANCIAL INFO. Its like a stolen credit card; the victim has to file papers and get a letter of waiver form the credit card company. I’ve Seen this land grab coming and attempts were made to collect in the Seattle region when medciare paid and it was not primary OR Multi[lee THEFTS OCCURRED AND THE FEDS WILLL NOT GO ARREST A ‘PARTNER OF THE GOVT’ This already started soon after 9/11/01 a few years ago but the outcry from estate attorneys made the govt stop This seems like another trial run to see if the people will fight back. No due process was given by the crooks in this as they did not send out any letters saying they had stolen govt money in the patient’s name Most ‘fraud’ offices have been turned into ‘ethics ‘ offices and a govt contractor interlocked with the international banksters takes the report and sends it right over to the crook and witnesses are ‘hung out to dry.’ ReaL Law enforcement protects witnesses as much as legally possible. I’ve written about all of this since 2008 . I have 17 Medicare numbers created by the govt contractors from 2 real ones and a 4 million dollar theft and I had already learned of the illegal offline system using just one phony claim number months before the ‘multiple’ operation began on many and thusands of fraud reports disappeared inside. as my fraud reports and evidence got ‘disappeared and US atty’s said it was docuemented well enough to stop the biggest Ricco case in the history of the USA and yet no federal law enforcement would do anything at HHS. Even SSA and FTC who take care of ID theft now, could not get them to get the FBI involved, Medciarre is not brike its been ‘looted’ for 20 years since enforcement of this area was stopped under Pres Clinton. with phony numbers being used to by pass security in illegal bail outs of health insurers, etc ?or the amount stolen in ’08 was estimated by 500 named witnesses to be about the same as the TARP monies the banksters got from the two govt contractors the total sum was given to spend as they pleased with no over sight But it all started with one pay per claims and insurers not wanting to pay first when it was their legal obligations to do so,,who didn’t want to . Judges orders got ignored then to by the govt contractors who said ” we don’t care what a judge says’ nor the terms of their govt contract to ‘uphold the laws of the land, nor any laws as thetr ‘deals among the insurance industry over rode all of that and now we have the worst offender over seeing fining your doctor ,etc. whom they gave illegally altered info to; tricking them into billing Medicare not coded for the govt to collect from the right payer and creating overpayments against the patients. who is now being asked to arrest the crooks and shut down organized crime and obviously we can’t rather than enforcing HR 1063 which puts the burden back on the govt but the worst offender is now in charge,, So I believe Rancher Bundy does have judges rulings in his favor as and being ignored as its what has been gong on since 9/11/01..as lot more than the Patriot act got passed in those huge laws nobody read before voting on. :Linda Joy Adams .

    Hold the BLM officials conducting this travesty of Federal Law, the Wild-Free Roaming Horses and Burro Act of 1971, which bans wild horses to being sold for slaughter. Every one of us is held accountable when we break the law, so then why are BLM employees that break the Wild-Free Roaming Horses and Burro Act of 1971 immune from following a law enacted by Congress? This is a prime example of abuse of power by an Executive Branch agency. Where is the Attorney General and why is he not enforcing the law? This is total dereliction of duty and should be an offense punishable by him getting fired for not doing his job.

  • Wondering Woman

    Yes, and they seem hell bent on destroying most of every living thing on earth in their endeavors. How can they expect We the People to think they have good intentions, when their actions belie all that they claim that they are doing? One thing we can be sure of, the lies these illegitimi keep telling are not likely to decrease, but skyrocket. I can’t stop myself from laughing every time mention is made (by them) trying to rationalize a reason for the carbon footprint reducing cap & trade bills – so long after they were exposed by some astute hackers who leaked their e mails between these alleged scientist making jokes about how they were lying and fooling the public with their doctored data lies on global warming.
    Surely there are some legitimate scientist left, but it will be very difficult, if not impossible, to find an honest one working for the one world global government, aka the new world order.
    Hope all of you have looked up France’s 2 year study on Monsanto’s GMO see produce. Also hope all of you know that most all of the corn, soy beans grown in the US is now GMO seeds, and if anyone can come up with a purpose for Monsanto’s GMO grass seeds they released a few years ago, other than killing off lots of cattle, livestock, and wild life, please share it with the rest of us. The farmers who had been trying this GMO grass had lots of complaints about the effect on their livestock before they released it.

  • crowvet

    I don’t like the direction that the BLM has gone. Foremost the BLM is suposed to benifit the Rancher in raising livestock and to manage the well fair of the range. The enviromentalist have bullied their way into the management of the open range . in doing so the fees that the cattlemen pay to graze their cattle are now used to support the idiot enviromentalists. This enviroment protection junk also covers the wild horse. Any given part of the BLM range can handle only so many head of wild horses. The enviormentalists consume the majority of the funding that the BLM has. When tha BLM tries to reduce the herds to manageable level the bleeding hearts and the enviormentalists step in to condem the process . Now the ranges are over run with wildhorses and are not managed. Even though the ranges are depleted by way to many horses the bleeding hearts whould rather see the demize of the range rather than offer any sensable help in maintaining the wildhorse herd level. Because of the enviromentalists and the bleeding heart clubs the wild horse, Which is not some spanish horses decendants, has to suffer the slaughter . The BLM is not to fault. It is the bleeding heart clubs and the enviromentalists..

  • gomurr

    The BLM has repeatedly shown themselves to be poor stewards of public lands and their native eco-systems.

    The US Forestry Service is a close second. For many years, their practice of not allowing local residents or campers to pick up dead fall off the forest floor for use in campfires, has resulted in faster spreading forest fires.

    There was also USFS agent who, against all warnings, set a “controlled burn” on a windy day in NM a couple of years ago, wiping out at least one town.

  • Pam Dunn

    The “RANGE” isn’t capable of handling the size of the herd; It now numbers somewhere around 3000 horses while the range is ONLY rated to sustain a herd of 900 horses; Something HAS to be done with that excess and there isn’t THAT large of a demand. SO which is it, let them starve and become diseased OR round them up and humanely dispose of them?

    • fistdeyuma

      We all agree that something had to be done. However that is no excuse for breaking the law. Americans are faced with hard choices every day. We have to solve those problem’s within the law. If we take the easy route and break the law, we take the chance of being arrested and tried for breaking the law. We can expect nothing less if the law breakers are part of the government. Yes, it would be hard to relocate part of the herd. We don’t pay them to break the law because following it will be too hard.

    • cdo12

      Correct that to the range that BLM allows. They’ve corralled the wild horses into very tiny areas to make room for contract cattle ranchers.

    This was a very good article, but nothing new. This abuse has been going on for a long time. We new a government that follows it’s laws when they are just, and change the ones that are unjust.

  • The progressive environmentalist attitude is going to jump up and bite both the USFS (which I once worked for as a pilot) and the BLM. Because of the environmentalists the forest service no longer sells (or very rarely from what I hear) dead and dying timber to the high bidder (logger). Therefore the undergrowth (fuel) for wild fires is building up tremendously. One day soon there will be another devastating fire like we had in Yellowstone some years back. It does not take an expert to look at some of our national forests, spot and identify dead and dying timber and predict the future. One that comes to mind immediately is at Tahoe. Furthermore, the forest service uses infrared film to determine stressed forests and infestations of pine beatle. It is a serious problem because of the mismanagement by both agencies. The current conflict between ranchers and the BLM (along with the wild horse debacle) is barely the tip of the iceberg. The problems are both severe and many, within these two agencies, and it gets worse everyday.

    The problem is that the servants of ours are not serving We the People anymore. These servants are serving the New World Order and this NWO’s agenda 21 . The federal government via the constitution is not allowed to own land other than for buildings , military bases and some monuments. The land grab that has occurred since the 1800’s has been unconstitutional . Agenda 21 wants a very large portion of the U.S.A. to be reverted back to a no human allowed area only native species allowed . Therefore horses are not native to the land so eliminate them.
    BLM is under what branch of our political servants , the executive ???

    Actually, horses originated here, then migrated across the Alaska-Siberia land bridge, and then went extinct here. So in essence, all horses are North American in origin. But yeah, the BLM has been after them for ages. They hate them and it’s personal. The burros too. The horses they’re rounding up and sending to slaughter are a bit trickier, though. If I recall right, this particular herd was actually created by the BLM. They allowed ranchers to graze their horses, then refused permission for them to round them up. Then three years later, they gave them permission, but not for the foals, only for their branded horses. Many of the feral non-mustang horses out there are because of the BLM itself.

    In Oregon we have the Keiger Mustang range. These horses are protected and not part of the Range alotment. They are kept at an acceptable levels for the terrain. The rest of the range land is over populated by stray horses that should be removed . WE don’t need enviromentalists creating havock and starvation for all livestock that use the BLM range. If you want to see wildhorses go see the Keiger Mustang on the open range set aside for them or lets see these bleeding hearts contribute funding for the welfare of the stray horses. Maybe it can be arranged that these destroyers of the range lands can take all of the stray horses and take care of them theirselves. I know the enviromentalists will be glad to help.

    I don’t know about the BLM shooting “wild” horses. I do know this about horses from growing up on a ranch and using several on a daily basis: Horses lose their ability to feed as they get old and starve to death. The country would suffer no great loss if the “wild” horse numbers were controlled. They should be controlled by sale to slaughter. Most of the “horse lovers” view them as pets. The horse is a fine animal and serves man well but is not a pet! I know many will take me to task for this but fact is fact! Have I owned horses that I was fond of, yes I have. I also have shed tears when having to put a horse down. I take no pleasure in that but I will not let them die of starvation.
