Mustangs Subject to Helicopter Stampede

24 Jan

Instead of taking up Mrs. Pickens on her offer to construct holding facilities for the horses on two ranches she has purchased within and adjacent to the Antelope Complex, the BLM HAS ALREADY BEGUN subjecting these mustangs — including heavily pregnant mares — to a helicopter stampede in the dead of winter, conducted in treacherous conditions and freezing temperatures, BY AN INEXPERIENCED CONTRACTOR. One needs only to recall last year’s Calico roundup, which caused scores of mares to spontaneously abort their late term foals, to predict what a terrible toll this roundup will take on the beautiful wild horses of Antelope. BLM actually plans to ship the Antelope horses thousands of miles away to holding facilities, when they could be housed instead on lands adjacent to their home range. Any concerns about future emergency water sources should be eased by the fact that there has been no livestock grazing on the public grazing allotments associated with Mrs. Pickens’ ranches since June 2010.
