Racketeering the American West: BP Oil, Cattle & BLM Horse Roundups

In 1971, Congress charged the U.S. Department of the Interior's Bureau of Land Management with the stewardship of both the land and the Mustangs. These 2 videos show that not only did the Bureau failed horribly in that stewardship, but did so by colluding with big industry to destroy the very beings they were entrusted with protecting. The scandals are numerous and tawdry, the lies are plentiful and ludicrous, the attitudes are sadly predictable and the result is the wholesale destruction of the American people's culture and waste of the American people's treasure(read tax dollars) by their own servants.

The truth about the wild "protected" horses is that their land is being handed over to Big Agriculture (Corporate Cattle Ranches) and Big Oil, (British Petroleum), all at the expense of the U.S. Tax Payer and in violation of U.S. Federal Law. 

I've heard it said many times and it bears repeating: If you like horses - Don't eat cows. And I add further: If you like animals - Don't eat them at all! Go Vegan

Horses to Slaughter: Anatomy of a Cover Up within the Wild Horse and Burro Program of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM)

A plethora of facts and investigative reports about the grim realities the Mustangs are facing at the hands of the BLM and their Corporate Mistresses.

What have we become? When profit is the greatest good, everything becomes expendable. Appalling....

Yes, but the wise ones know that the only things that have true value are those things which can't be measured.

I really do think we're cruising for a bruising if we don't straighten ourselves out. :(

BTW - 7 horses were killed in the first day of the summer round-up...
It's just heartbreaking for those who care. :(
