If Jewell is there, then clearly Mobil Oil Corp.'s interests will be represented. Will anyone be there to speak out on behalf of wildlife and the environment?

Its not right to go against what President Richard Nixon put as law for these animals!

I'm praying that Ms. Jewell will be supportive of all our wildlife and stand firm against the big businesses. Enough is enough and we need to get back clean air, water, environment and most of all, all wildlife must have an opportunity to live a long and healthy life. I also hope the department goes after Ken Salazar, Ken Abbey and all the others that have destroyed our wildlife and environment.

I'm hoping, no, I'm praying that Ms. Jewell will have compassion in her heart for our horses and other wildlife. I'm feeling very cynical right now after reading about the Horse Slaughter that may be taking place. I'm really working on good thoughts for this woman who is up against lobbyists that are trying to destroy all of our wildlife for big business.
Just a fact that I'll throw out. In the 60's there was a handful of lobbyists in Washington. Today there are 23,000. This gives you some insight into the pressure that's being put on all of our government officials.

This woman needs to stand her ground and not be intimidated by their bullying tactics. I pray she does the right thing for the animals.
