Not going to happen. We will no let our corrupt congress get paid to do what a few want. This needs to go out to vote by the people if congree permits this. Ken Salazar resigned (hooray), so many the next person in this office will not permit this. I'm hoping President Obama will pick the Representative from AZ - Raul G. He stands up for wildlife, and the environment 100% of the time.

I fear for the wild horses (50,000+) the BLM has stockpiled. The BLM needs to be shut down, Salazar is out:) and he left pro-horse slaughter employees on office. The majority of Americans do not want the horses rounded up or killed. There are not enough words to say how ticked off I am at this.

The government is again ignoring the wishes of the majority of Americans who do not want the wild horses rounded and slaughtered. Until Congress does the bidding of those paying their salaries, these type of issues will continue to exist.

Gee, we must be returning to being cave men. I just want the BLM to know that I will fight this. Those horses are part of our heritage.

Bucephala, or Alexandria Bucephalus, was a city founded by Alexander the Great and named in honor of his horse, Bucephalus.

So much he cared (Alexander the Great) for his friend that he gave him the Honor of naming a city after him, I have never seen or heard of someone giving that kind of Honor to a Horse!!

I see the Cruelty in which the Horses are being treated and it just breaks my heart, because if it was not for the Horse there would be no world, it was with the Horse that people were able to conquered the world, and this is how they pay them back? by mistreating, abusing and killing their sons and daughters with no remorse, how SHAMEFUL!!!
