Wild Horse Slaughters are really just land grabs by the Federal GovernmentSubmitted by joeinmo on Sat, 03/02/2013 - 23:24
The Federal Government under the Obama Administration continues to roundup wild mustangs on western lands. Actual numbers of mustangs left in the wild are down to a few thousand. Interestingly enough, these lands become unimportant when the wild mustangs are gone because nothing else really uses the habitat, but that's not how the land is getting grabbed.
The government basically confiscates the land afterwards and shuts down the ability to mine, drill etc. on in. it has to be "maintained" so horse heards don't get too big, but at multiple locations herds are already small enough that the remaining horses make it where you aren't allowed to do anything on the land anymore without endangering the existing horses. So in a nutshell, they are rounding them up to kill them to make the heards so small you can't use the land without endangering the remaining herds. Backdoor land grabs.
In addition, these wild mustangs, icons of the American west, are getting slaughtered and put into dog food and even put into meat has recently been discovered in Taco Bell.
The State of Oklahoma (the only state willing to) is waiting on the Governor to sign a bill to allow wild mustangs to be slaughtered in their state. The governor said they would poll the citizens first before any decision is made to sign the bill.
Please help stop federal land grabs and please help stop wild mustangs to be slaughtered.
Call the Oklahoma Governor at 1-918-581-2801 or 405-521-2342 and tell them no slaughtering of wild horses.
