Some say the Bureau of Land Management is making a quick buck endangering the lives of the horses they're supposed to be protecting.

The BLM is murdering the mustangs and their goal is total elimination. They round them up and claim that they are starving, they look healthy in the photos. This is disgusting. Petition signed. I am afraid forthe horses and burros, the BLM does not care about public opinion and petitions.

“Never give up. No matter what is going on never give up. Develop the heart. Too much energy in your country is spent developing the mind instead of the heart, BE COMPASSIONATE not just to your friends but to everyone, BE COMPASSIONATE work for peace in your heart and in the world. Work for peace and I say again, never give up. No matter what is happening, no matter what is going on around you. Never give up.”—His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

“May all beings everywhere plagued with sufferings of body and mind quickly be freed from their pain. May those frightened cease to be afraid, and may those bound be free. May the powerless find power, and may people befriend all life. May those of all species who find themselves lost, the young, the aged, the unprotected, be guarded by beneficent celestials, and may they swiftly attain Buddhahood.”—Buddhist Prayer for Peace

What inhumane, low life rubbish did God ever create - the human race is just vile and wicked - when money is involved there is no stopping our greed.

Oh yes people with degrees are paid to dream up this kind of inhumane torture on these beautiful icons of western history, who have been around for 5,000 yrs. making history as carrying the U.S. Mail, U.S. soldiers to war, and were given medals of bravery. There was one that was the very first who knew exactly what was needed of him/her and the horse took over and operated independently of anyone pulling on his reigns or riding on his back. The military actually gave him a medal.

For every action there is a reaction. According to the law of karma, if we cause

pain and suffering to other living beings, we must endure pain and suffering in

return, both individually and collectively. We reap what we sow, in this life and

the next, for nature has her own justice. No one can escape the law of karma.

These things make me sick. What is wrong with people? How detatched do you have to be to be okay with yourself after doing something like this?

"Tom Davis" is the a-hole buying most of the horses and then bragging about how yummy yearling colt tastes- please find out where this miscreant lives and make his life miserable!
