WARNING! GRAPHIC IMAGES
Offered for Information Leading to the Arrest AND Conviction of These Heartless Vandals

Trespassing & Vandalism at Mustang Monument
In what can only be described as a heinous and horrific act of animal abuse, Madeleine Pickens has learned that outlaws have trespassed on her property, the Spruce Ranch in Elko County, NV, and cut fences and shut off water supplies to a herd of horses she rescued from the slaughter house pens.  A number of horses have died in the most brutal manner possible, writhing in pain and lacking the strength to regain their feet, or their lives.  Madeleine personally discovered one of her favorites, one she fondly named Scarlet, lying dead near a fence post and it literally took her breath away.

This is a continuation of trespass activities that have plagued Mustang Monument since she bought the ranch many years ago to try and create a place where the American people could come and see wild horses in their natural setting.  But the powers that be in the Congress and the BLM, the federal agency that manages the wild horses, have never been willing to put their whole-hearted support behind the project and the illegal trespass acts have continued.  But no one could ever imagine that the criminal element of horse haters would ever resort to an act so cruel as virtually terrorizing wild animals on private property that were no threat, nuisance or bother to anyone.

Millions of Americans love the wild horses, Congress passed a law over 40 years ago to protect them and stop what had been a pattern of abuse that spanned centuries, and yet we are left with this kind of criminal behavior.  They can and have gotten away with this because the American people have never seen the carcasses of horses, dead from a lack of the most basic element of survival, water.  You have to ask yourself how many more horrific acts must occur before Congress and the BLM decides to step up and provide the oversight necessary to stop this abuse.

Madeleine is offering a reward of $100,000 for information leading to arrest and conviction of the perpetrators of this vile act and will proceed to provide information to the American people about what has happened here to create awareness about a problem that must be addressed.

If you have any information regarding these crimes against Saving America’s Mustangs and Mustang Monument, please call Rean Wegley immediately on 858-759-5517 or contact her by email on rwegley@savingamericasmustangs.org

Lawsuit Against BLM On Gruesome Wild Mare Sterilization

Update! Lawsuit Against BLM On Gruesome Wild Mare Sterilization

Despite strong opposition, the Bureau of Land Management, (BLM), intends to move forward with gruesome and dangerous sterilization experiments on wild mares.

The proposed research procedures are risky-to-deadly and to move forward is irresponsible, unethical and inhumane.

Thanks to caring and compassionate donors like you, Front Range Equine Rescue is able to initiate legal action against the BLM’s plan.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

It is unjustifiable for the BLM to conduct such barbaric sterilization experiments with a host of known risks

Front Range Equine Rescue Files Suit to Stop Surgical Sterilization ‘Research’ on Oregon’s Wild Horses

Nonprofit Horse Rescue Group Challenges Inhumane Experimental Surgery

HINES, Ore., July 26, 2016 – Front Range Equine Rescue (FRER), a national nonprofit working to end the abuse and neglect of horses through rescue, advocacy and education, announced today it is suing the U.S. Department of the Interior’s Bureau of Land Management to stop the BLM’s experimental sterilization of wild mares in Oregon. The lawsuit was filed late yesterday in federal court in Washington D.C.

FRER’s suit contends the BLM’s intention to conduct surgical experiments on 225 wild horses, many in various stages of pregnancy, and potentially thousands more horses over time, causes harm and suffering in violation of federal law.
The sterilizations on wild mares proposed by the BLM, to be carried out in collaboration with Oregon State University, include three untested, dangerous procedures:

  • Slicing open the mare’s vagina while sedated, but awake and standing, and blindly pulling out her ovaries – a risky and controversial surgical procedure even for tame mares under the best of conditions, let alone captive wild horses in a holding facility
  • Burning and then cutting the sedated, but conscious horses’ fallopian tubes, a procedure that is surgically untested on horses
  • Using a laser, inserted through the vagina, to scar and seal the ovaries – another surgery that has never been studied in horses

“It is unjustifiable for the BLM to conduct such barbaric sterilization experiments with a host of known risks, including death, on captive wild horses,” said Hilary Wood, President of FRER. “Performing unproven surgeries in a holding pen, let alone on the open range, is contrary to the BLM’s congressional mandate to care for wild horses, especially when responsible alternatives like the PZP contraceptive vaccine already exist to maintain population levels and ensure herd viability.”

Earlier this year, FRER filed formal comments opposing the “research” that will be done on conscious animals in long-term holding. These comments – and comments submitted by more than 20,000 members of the public – were disregarded, prompting FRER to file its suit.

“These sterilization procedures are not documented, practiced, or analyzed in non-surgical settings; they are overly invasive, and they are unlikely to have applicability for mares on public lands,” said Laureen Bartfield, DVM, an expert in population control of wild horses and the social structure of herds. “Two of the three procedures have virtually never been performed on horses, and the unvisualized removal of the ovaries, while documented in the literature, is disfavored by reputable veterinarians. The BLM’s plan is not just clinically ill-advised, it constitutes animal cruelty on a large scale.”

wild.crowded.foal

The plans for eventual widespread sterilization of horses on the range will also run up an estimated cost to the taxpayers in the millions – and the first of the funds could be handed to OSU in the form of a BLM grant. This first group of mares to go under the knife are in BLM custody in the Hines Corral in Eastern Oregon.

FRER’s lawsuit says the experimental sterilizations represent a conflict of interest, and are not in the best interests of wild horses, but rather in the BLM’s own best interest by reducing their management load without considering their mandate to properly manage the horses.
This is not the first time the BLM has pursued surgical sterilization for wild horses. In 2011, a federal court found the bureau’s plans to castrate wild horses captured in Wyoming was of an “extreme and irreversible nature.” In 2012, the BLM was again forced to defend similar plans in federal court, and abandoned its efforts to castrate Nevada’s wild horses.

The grim reality facing these innocent wild mares includes

  • Invasive surgery performed in a non-sterile environment
  • No known studies on domestic mares for the tubal ligation procedure
  • No known studies on domestic or wild mares for the Hysteroscopically-guided laser ablation procedure
  • Procedures to be performed on wild mares in varying stages of pregnancy
  • Infection, hemorrhaging, colic signs, aborted foals, potential for abnormalities in foals born, and death “If any gestational group in any procedure meets a major complication rate greater than 20 percent” then the procedure will be stopped
  • Major complications leading to death or the need for euthanasia are “expected” to be less than 2 percent (225 mares are slated for the research; 25 in a control group; 200 divided up for the three procedures)
  • Wild mares will be frightened as they are separated from their herd mates They will be even more terrified when driven into a confined chute to be sedated and restrained for the surgery
  • Ovarian function plays a significant role in the endocrine (hormonal) system. To destroy this biological function will damage behavior and health of surviving mares

I thank everyone who was able to contribute to allow us to initiate this lawsuit. Legal action is expensive and can be lengthy. We need funds for the next phases of our lawsuit against the BLM.

Please help to spare the wild mares!

Re: Complaint – Medical Malpractice Related to Unnecessary Surgery

Medical Malpractice Related to Unnecessary Surgery

By Law Offices of Barry G. Doyle, P.C.

Unnecessary surgery is a type of medical malpractice. A form of medical malpractice that has become an alarming and growing problem in the U.S. is unnecessary surgery.

This type of malpractice can lead to life-threatening complications and completely alter an individual’s life. When a surgeon performs an unnecessary surgery, it is an act of medical negligence. Doctors should take every precaution before deciding to prescribe any type of invasive surgery to a patient. When there is a failure to do this and it results in unnecessary surgery, they may be held legally liable. Unnecessary surgery can lead to serious or even life-threatening complications. Some of the risks include hemorrhaging, damage to organs, infection, amputation and anesthesia errors. Putting animals through unnecessary surgery where they face complications that could significantly alter their life is a form of medical negligence.”

The facilities in violation include the Oregon State University (OSU) & the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). BLM facility locations are the Burns Oregon and Hines Oregon wild horse holding locations but this complaint is in conjunction with any and all other government or private facility under direction of the BLM.

The Oregon State licensed veterinarian in violation of this medical malpractice related to unnecessary surgery is Leon Pelistick; and others – names of which are unknown to me at this time.

Name: PIELSTICK, LEON G DVM
Location: BURNS OR 97720
License Type: Veterinarian
License #: 1282
License Status: Active
Initially Licensed: 7/20/1973
License Expires: 12/31/2016
 

The United States Department of the Interior, Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in conjunction with the Oregon State University, is planning a cruel and completely unnecessary sterilization “research” which includes dangerous experimentation on pregnant wild horse mares. The surgeries will be overseen by the University’s Veterinary School. In coordination with BLM, veterinarians have been assembled by Oregon State University (OSU) to conduct these unnecessary and dangerous surgeries. Three additional veterinarians licensed in the State of Oregon will conduct the procedures.

Dr. Charles Mayo, of the famous Mayo Clinic, stated:

“I abhor vivisection … it should be abolished … I know of no discovery that could not have been obtained without it…”

What is vivisection? Vivisection is the practice of animal experimentation. This can include administering drugs, infecting with diseases, poisoning for toxicity testing, brain damaging, maiming, binding, and other painful and invasive procedures.

Don Moore, DVM is a respected Veterinarian who has extensive knowledge about wild horses and wild horse behavior. He states, “The three surgical procedures for permanent sterilization of mares described in the mare sterilization research project, ovariectomy via colopotomy, tubal ligation and hysteroscopically-guided laser ablation of the oviduct papilla all require certain pre-operative and post-operative considerations for aseptic surgical protocol and pain management.

Pre-operative bloodwork and a thorough examination are always performed on the relatively few domestic mares which are spayed. Other options other than surgery are always considered first due to the risk involved with any of these procedures. Aseptic surgical protocol and pain management is the standard of care for each and every surgery or the performing veterinarian would undoubtedly be sued by the owner and reprimanded by the state veterinary board.

Wild mares will not have their surgeries performed in a sterile surgical suite. Their surgery will be performed in a non-sterile chute or standing in stocks at the local BLM facility without the benefit of the routine standard of care. Unlike domestic mare who are easily handled, the very handling of these wild mares presents additional pre-operative stressors, which cannot be mitigated.

The BLM does not possess the statutory authority to treat America’s wild free roaming mares as research test subjects to perform surgeries which are not the standard care for domestic mares.

This type of trial and error butchery is a violation of the least feasible management clause of the Wild Free Roaming Horses and Burros Act.

Mass experimental surgeries performed under these conditions outlined in the proposal amounts to negligence and abuse. I believe experiments such as this proposal are unethical, inhumane and unwarranted. Any veterinarian(s) who would perform these experiments is in violation of the oath taken as a graduating veterinarian, ‘above all else, do no harm’. If a veterinarian in private practice performed these procedures in the manner described in this document, they would most certainly be reported to and disciplined by the regulatory board of that state. Discipline would likely mean suspension of that veterinarian’s license to practice in that state.”

Cruelty to animals, also called animal abuse, is the human infliction of suffering or harm upon any nonhuman animal, for purposes other than self-defense or survival. Experimenting on wild horses and burros is cruel, inhumane and absolutely unnecessary. BLM and Oregon State’s cruel, inhumane torture of and experimentation on our wild horses is absolutely not acceptable. In no way does this sterilization proposal conform to the minimally intrusive management on the range that the Congressionally Wild Free-Roaming Horse and Burro Act of 1971 demands to protect these wild creatures.

 Sterilization is a term referring to any process that eliminates (removes) or kills (deactivates) all forms of life.  Sterilizing a wild horse or burro herd is the opposite of the intent of the 1971 Wild Free-roaming Horse and Burro Act (WFRHBA) and it fails to analyze an alternative that follows the Congressional Act that states, the wild horses and burros shall be protected from capture, branding, harassment, or death’. It would be anomalous to infer that by authorizing the custodian of the wild free roaming horses and burros to “manage” them, Congress intended to permit the animals’ custodian to subvert the primary policy of the statute by harassing and experimenting on the very animals that congress sought to protect from being killed and harassed and captured and removed from the wild.

The thinking, feeling animals who are used in experiments are treated like nothing more than disposable laboratory equipment. They are not only physically traumatized but they are psychologically traumatized and all of this is done unnecessarily. Animal experimentation is an inherently unethical practice. Under conceptual approaches to animal cruelty, performing unnecessary experiments or demonstrations upon animals that cause them substantial pain or distress may be viewed as cruelty.

There is nothing sterile about a holding facility, and these are wild mares that are going to be absolutely terrified by being confined in this chute and having an incision made in their vaginas so the veterinarian’s arm can reach in and rip out their ovaries. The possibility of the mares panicking despite the sedation is high, and they could break their necks in the chute. They can also die from sedation, or their hearts can stop from sheer terror. The sterilization procedures that BLM is proposing to conduct on federally protected wild mares are dangerous, costly and impractical for use in the field, including any BLM holding facility due to the serious health risks they pose to the horses and their unborn foals. BLM’s cruel, inhumane torture of and experimentation on our wild horses is absolutely not acceptable and in no way conforms to the minimally intrusive management on the range that the Wild Free-Roaming Horse and Burro Act of 1971 was passed to ensure.

Your action is urgently needed to prevent the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) plans to conduct cruel and unethical and unnecessary sterilization experiments on wild horses, including painful and life-threatening surgeries on pregnant mares and young fillies in non-sterile environments. The first sterilization experiments are slated to occur any day now in partnership with Oregon State University and under the direction of Leon Pelistick, DVM. Unless halted, these unnecessary and brutal experiments will begin immediately.

Lawsuit Filed to Stop BLM from Sterilizing Idaho Wild Horse Herd

Lawsuit Filed to Stop BLM from Sterilizing Idaho Wild Horse Herd

Boise, ID (January 4, 2016) . . . Today, The Cloud Foundation (TCF), the American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign (AWHPC), Return to Freedom, and Virginia Marie Hudson filed a lawsuit in the Idaho District Court against the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), charging that the agency’s plan to permanently sterilize the entire herd of wild horses in the Saylor Creek Herd Management Area (HMA) violates the Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act of 1971 (“Wild Horse Act”) and the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).

The sterilization plan was approved as part of the BLM’s Jarbidge Resource Management Plan (RMP), which was finalized on September 2, 2015.

“This case challenges a controversial and precedent-setting plan by the BLM to sterilize an entire herd of wild horses in the Saylor Creek Herd Management Area – an action that will destroy the natural, wild, and free-roaming behavior of these individual horses, as well as the social organization and long-term viability of the herd,” said Nick Lawton of Meyer, Glitzenstein & Eubanks, the public interest law firm that is representing the advocates. “This unprecedented and invasive management proposal is a gross violation of the BLM’s legal mandate to protect wild horses as an ‘integral part of the natural system of the public lands,’ and sets a terrible precedent that threatens the viability of wild horse herds across the West.”
The BLM’s plan to sterilize the Saylor Creek wild horses also harms the interests of American citizens, here represented by Virginia Marie Hudson, as castrating and spaying the entire herd would impair the public’s ability to enjoy and observe the wild horses’ natural social behaviors.

The complaint charges that the BLM, through its Jarbidge RMP, authorized the precedent-setting drastic action of removing and sterilizing all the wild horses in the 95,000-acre Saylor Creek HMA without presenting evidence ofany damage to the range caused by the Saylor Creek herd and without making a determination that “excess” horses are present, as required by law. Additionally, the BLM failed entirely to analyze significant impacts that this action will have on individual horses and the herd as a whole.

“The BLM’s plan to sterilize this entire herd of wild horses will fundamentally change the behaviors that define these animals. What’s more, if BLM succeeds in sterilizing this herd, the agency will likely expand its sterilization campaign throughout the West,” Lawton concluded. “This lawsuit aims to preserve the behavior and character that make these animals precious to the American people, to keep wild horses wild.”

Ginger Kathrens, Executive Director of The Cloud Foundation concluded, “If this proposed action is unchanged, it will result in the wholesale loss of this herd and an irreparable loss of a part of our national heritage for this and future generations. This is unacceptable.”

The Cloud Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation and protection of wild horses and burros on our Western public lands with a focus on protecting Cloud’s herd in the Pryor Mountains of Montana. Cloud is the subject of Foundation founder Ginger Kathrens’ groundbreaking PBS/Nature documentaries.

The American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign (AWHPC) is a coalition of more than 60 horse advocacy, public interest, and conservation organizations dedicated to preserving the American wild horse in viable, free-roaming herds for generations to come, as part of our national heritage.

Return to Freedom (RTF) is a national non-profit dedicated to wild horse preservation through sanctuary, advocacy, education and conservation, and also operates the American Wild Horse Sanctuary in Lompoc, CA. It is also AWHPC’s founding organization.

Virginia Marie Hudson is a private citizen and mustang owner who enjoys visiting federally-protected wild horse herds in Herd Management Areas throughout the West, including Saylor Creek.

The plaintiffs in this case are being represented by Nick Lawton and William S. Eubanks II of Meyer Glitzenstein & Eubanks, LLP.

horses slaughtered in Canada has decreased over last year and greatly over past years.

Horse Supply Numbers

3 horsesThe CHDC is happy to report that in 2016 the number of horses slaughtered in Canada has decreased significantly over last year and greatly over past years.

While year-end 2015 numbers were up slightly over 2014, at May’s year-to-date, 2016 is down 17.1% over 2015.

Comparing numbers from 2008, when horse slaughter was at its peak in the last 10 years, the numbers are down 50% at May year-to-date.

While we’re not certain how all reasons factor in, it is quite apparent that the demand for horse meat is decreasing.  Factor in as well an overall lower horse inventory in Canada and the U.S., along with less breeding and more responsible horse ownership.

We have reason to applaud this decline and we’re sure all horse welfare advocates join the CHDC in looking forward to this continuing trend!

COMMENTOR:

news letter from Animals’ Angels and they have checked the number of horses sent to slaughter in Mexico from the U.S. and is down 31.14% from just 18 months since the ban on horses from the U.S. that are slaughtered that the EU slapped on Mexico that means that 33,000 horses were saved. In fact a number of killer buyers have quit the business and went on to something else. Russia which was importing horse meat from Mexico has lowered its shipments from Mexico along with Vietnam and at least one slaughter plant has closed up. Japan’s orders have gone up.
It looks like Mexico’s horse slaughter business has dropped 60% since the EU ban went into effect.
If you want to read the full report go to animalsangels.org
It looks like Japan has developed a taste for horse meat from the U.S. that is loaded with vet drugs it looks like they are going to eat it anyway I doubt they know about.I’m not sure what these drugs will do to someones health if it is been made into sushi which is served raw. The drug Bute stays in the horses system forever I wouldn’t want to be the fool eating raw meat from any animal treated with Bute. I don’t eat meat so I don’t give a hoot.

Oregon State U alumni shocked at wild horse sterilization experiment at OSU

Letter: OSU is Complicit in Wild Horse Scandal

Letter written by Janelle Ghiorso as published on Corvallis Gazette-Times

I have been trying to plead for a stop to these atrocious experiments for months and without any replies from OSU or the BLM.

I am an Oregon State University alumni from 1996. I am ashamed and shocked that OSU would partner with the Bureau of Land Management to perform unprecedented and barbaric sterilization experiments on the wild horses that belong to all Americans!

The BLM and ranching interests want these horses eliminated and continue to make absurd overpopulation claims in order to get backing for cutting the population. Any educated person knows what happens when the mares are sterilized! The wild horses will decline and eventually be eliminated. Aside from the pain and suffering the horses will be subjected to in the immediate future, the BLM and ranchers and the big bucks OSU makes from jumping on this corrupt and selfish agenda is worse than shameful!

I will never feel the same about the university. I am among a majority of Americans who prefer the continued freedom of these symbols of freedom in America, not their zeroing out via sterilization! I guess the only thing that matters to OSU is money!

How many residents are aware of the partnership between OSU and the BLM in a horrible attempt to destroy our iconic wild horses in Hines, Oregon? I have been trying to plead for a stop to these atrocious experiments for months and without any replies from OSU or the BLM. There are countless cattle on the range and there lies the real problem. The horses are being scapegoated.

ACTION ALERT: Send a letter to Natural Resources committee meeting by July 6 about wild horses

aniela.butler@mail.house.gov

 

To Mr. McClintock,

Please note that last week’s Natural Resources committee meeting was an example of regulatory capture of an agency – the Bureau of Land Management. Most of the information provided to the committee was not scientifically supported and not credible – including the population numbers of the public’s wild horses and wild burros on the range and in holding facilities.

The recent wild horse capture in Oregon and plans for sterilization procedures are politically and monetarily motivated. This is not in keeping with the law or the wishes of the American people who own the land and who own the wild horses and wild burros – it is biased for special “favored” interest groups. This is illegal and called “Regulatory Capture”.

This political corruption of a regulatory agency, created to act in the public interest, advances commercial or special interest groups that it is charged with regulating. Regulatory capture is government failure allowing firms to be injurious to the public (e.g., producing negative externalities). The agencies are called “captured agencies”.

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and associates continue to take away land that is legally set aside for wild horses and wild burros. Special interest groups see wild horses and wild burros as unfavorable to any financial stakeholders, i.e. livestock permittees, mining and energy corporations, large lobbying trophy hunting “clubs” and many more with a financial interest. This is unacceptable, illegal and the American citizens including me are disgusted at the “sell-out” of our lands and resources by the agency that is responsible to protect them … the Bureau of Land Management.

Each of the committee members and speakers must admit to the public their political and financial connections to the agencies and private/corporate benefactors of the elimination of the wild horses and wild burros and the selling leasing of our public lands and resources. This is a conflict of interest! Their connection to regulatory capture must require the remove of all committee members and speakers who have this conflict of interest.

Receipt requested.

Sincerely,
