The Interior Department's U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service began to implement its ill-conceived plan to eliminate all wild horses and burros in the Sheldon National Wildlife Refuge in northern Nevada. 

The first of two large-scale roundups began on Monday, September 9, 2013 -- due to the poor observation, accurate number of horses captured are unknown. The following approximate numbers were provided by the Service:

Day 1, Monday: 60 wild horses were captured (trap site #1: observers were kept 1 to 1.5 miles away from the trap site; no observation of horses in holding was allowed)

Day 2, Tuesday: 100 wild horses were captured (trap site #1: no observers present)

Day 3, Wednesday: 60 horses were captured (trap site #2: observers were kept at least 1/4 mile away from the trap site; no observation of horses in holding was allowed)

Day 4, Thursday: 60 horses were captured (trap site #2: no observers present)

Day 5, Friday: 30 horses were captured (trap site #2: no observers present)

The roundup continues today, Saturday, September 14, 2013.

BLM is not gonna be happy until all wild horses are eradicated from our lands. I call email text share everything I can to get the word out. But I think blm needs to back away and have a coop of advocates and officials to do a complete evaluation of the land and animals. Hopefully that way it will stay true. BLM STOP THIS INSANITY . Thanks Tina

What do the U.S. Government and British Petroleum have in common?  Well, aside from bureaucratic B.S. and a whole lot more money than we could ever dream of… they also seem to have a complete lack of concern for the sanctity of life. ...
