Before 1971, when Velma "Wild Horse Annie" Johnston won her crusade to save the country's wild horses, they were being trapped in brutal airplane roundups, slaughtered, and sold as steaks overseas. Now Republican Montana senator Conrad Burns, through a bi

I just read this in the magazine today. An excellent article that really tells it like it is, no flourishes, no boot poishing. Wish other magazines, and the media would do as good a job of presenting the story.

Hmmm.....Thanks for the honest article. I personally can't even fathom how a horse relates to food. Back when they were our transportation and pulled the plows. I'm pretty sure they never thought of them as food either.

Could someone please tell me how an idiot like Senator Conrad Burns actually became Senator? There seems to be many words to describe him, but sneaky seems to be one of them. How do the idiots manage to get so much power?

Can someone get a petition going so we can put a stop to it? These animals belong here, to be free taken care of not to be killed or abused. These mighty animals helped us before we were here, to get to and from. Why no respect for there history? And there Native American's who used them to surive. But no thanks or good for yellow hair Custer. This is what theses horses mean to me and my heart love and compassion.

So...now how do we stop THIS maggot? Is there a petition circulating to send to our reps in Washington? Not only am I a noobie but I am unfamiliar with new petition logistics. Can someone get the ball rolling?

At the very least, horses should not be rounded up at all until fall. There will then be no foals and mares, heavy with foal. How would the ranchers feel if their livestock should be herded with a helicopter?

Always something. One mealy-mouthed person whines about something and the next thing you know the words, "destroy and slaughter" fill the air. People in high places are mostly interested in lining their pockets. Why anyone would want to slaughter wild horses or any other living thing is something I cannot grasp. When I read this and then about the danger man is posing to wolves and wildlife throughout the world. Does cause me to wonder how they treat their own children or anything else that gets in their way. And, hey all you whining ranchers trying to pass a bill in the U.S. Congress saying the killing of wolves is okay, ever hear of the Great Pyrenees, Komondor or even Fainting Goats? Much easier to destroy than look for alternatives. Guess the next thing to go will be National Parks and Wildlife Preserves. Suppose the slaughtering of Wild Horses is because they eat too much grass. Suppose if I walked onto your land I would be slaughtered as well. Best I stop before the FBI comes a knockin' at my door.
