BLM Responds To Wyoming Roundup Accusations via Utah Public Radio

3 Oct

How co-incidental the roundup began September 15, 2014?  That’s just a couple of weeks before the end of the fiscal year. If they do NOT spend the money allotted in the current budget, they will have a harder time asking for increases in the future, won’t they?  Using up their budget is more important to them, not the wild horses or burros especially not those in holding pens.  BLM’s humane standards for the horses in their care still hasn’t been published to the public yet … one more roundup, horses dead needlessly, and still BLM has no understanding of the horse much less about the wild horses.
 

Wild horse preservationists have called into question the legality of the wild horse roundup in the checkerboard area of Wyoming which began Sept. 15.

Shelly Gregory with the Wyoming High Desert District of the Bureau of Land Management asserts the Wild Horse and Burro Act allows private land owners to request the BLM remove wild horses from their property.

“The BLM is respecting the rights of private land owners to operate their land as they see fit,” Gregory said.
