Caliente, NV, CRWE Newswire (October 6, 2010) – Today’s death of a mustang stallion at a U.S. Interior Department wild horse roundup is re-igniting controversy over the federal wild horse program, which has been harshly criticized, most recently by 54 members of Congress. Despite severe restrictions on the public’s ability to observe all aspects of the roundups, the death of the wild stallion was captured on video by wild horse advocates at the Silver King Herd Management Area in southeastern Nevada.
For the past couple of years now, various provocative and inflammatory “info-ads” have appeared in the New York Times,on Facebook, on bus shelters and billboards accusing the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) of misuse of funds (including the funding of “terrorists”), of lying about giving financial help to local humane societies and animal welfare efforts, and manipulating Congress to promote its “vegan” agenda.

If you think about wild horses, the first things that enter your mind are the Mustangs in the USA and possibly the Brumbies in Australia – but before you think about horses in other countries you should search in your own one: there are wild horses in Germany, too!
The Dülmen Ponies are living in a sanctuary which is placed in the Nature reserve of the Merfelder Bruch (12km west of Dülmen, Munster land). Obviously they are the last real wild horses in whole Europe! Continue reading →

It’s bad enough that the BLM is capturing hundreds of perfectly healthy wild horses who are thriving in the 606,000-acre Silver King Herd Management Area south of Ely, Nevada. What’s worse is that some of the horses who have lost their freedom now appear to be missing.
HOUSTON, (Horseback) – The federal Bureau of Land Management is holding wild horses captured during its “gathers” at a Utah state prison.
In a filing today in the ongoing first amendment case of Leigh vs. Salazar, it was revealed in court documents that the animals are being housed at the Central Utah Correctional Facility at Gunnison. The brief, an amendment to a motion for a preliminary injunction filed by Reno litigator Gordon Cowan did not state the number of horses being held. Continue reading →

Here we go again. It’s only three days into the controversial Silver King roundup, south of Ely, Nevada, and the BLM has already killed four perfectly healthy wild horses out of the 177 they’ve taken into custody. Continue reading →
Federal agencies and a helicopter contractor last week conducted an unannounced wild horse gather of nearly 400 mustangs at the Sheldon National Wildlife Refuge 200 miles north of Reno, a operation that led to legal action by wild horse advocates. On Friday, advocates who documented the Sheldon mustang gather filed affidavits to their ongoing federal court action in Reno, which requests a restraining order against federal roundups. The advocates allege that their observer at Sheldon last week was harassed by the contractor and federal employees and that the observer discovered a grave site strewn with the bones of horses killed during previous roundups.

The wild horses of the Silver King Herd Management Area south of Ely, Nevada are about to know their last day of freedom. When the day dawns on Saturday, September 25th, almost 600 stallions, mares, and unweaned foals will flee their homes with fear and terror as a belligerent helicopter whirls down upon them with one goal in mind: capture.
Using its own brand of twitsted logic, the BLM has determined that 600 wild horses are about 546 too many for the 606,000-acre basin in Nevada’s Lincoln County. In the 21-year period between 1985 and 2006, the agency removed 792 horses from the Silver King HMA. Why the BLM has now decided to decimate the wild herds in this area by removing so many horses at once is a question that defies a rational answer. Continue Reading

In a few short days, the government agency, Bureau of Land Management, for no explained reason will target exclusively wild burros in Arizona, Cibola-Trigo herd.
