Signed and added the following comments. Ken Salazar was the biggest mistake the Obama administration could have made and for Obama to keep him on staff for 3 1/2 years, tells me Obama doesn't really care about wildlife and the environment. I will not vote Republican, but am thinking of voting for another candidate because we can't afford 4 more years of Salazar.

FIRE Bob Abbey and Ken Salazar for not doing their jobs of protecting OUR wild horses on OUR public lands. Remove all privately owned cattle from OUR public lands.

"If all the beasts were gone, man would die from loneliness of spirit, for whatever happens to the beast, happens to the man. All things are connected. Whatever befalls the earth, befalls the sons of earth." Chief Seattle

Every life has a purpose. All animals are individuals and they have feelings and thoughts and they suffer the pain and the joy that we do. They are entitled and they deserve an opportunity to live.

"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated." Mahatma Gandhi

Horses is the companion site to the PBS Nature special on Horses. The site introduction aptly explains the importance of 'Horses' in the following manner: "They have transported us, fed us, amused us, worked for us, fought battles for us. Their beauty, grace, and fiery spirit have inspired us. Many centuries ago, their speed and endurance altered human perceptions of distance, and permitted physical achievements that otherwise would have been impossible. To a degree unmatched by any other animal, the horse has profoundly influenced the course of civilization."

We just took a small trip up to Wyoming to see what is happening in some of the small towns near the border of's quite different than where we live in Evergreen, CO -- the people here love wild animals and do all they can to protect them , but Wyo. is pretty much the 'good ol' boy rancher mentality' and cattle and sheep are first.
Most ranchers seem to think the land belongs to them to do with as they want, and to hell with wild animals unless they can hunt them; eat them, trophy them, or just plain kill them off.
They seem to resent the wild horses immensely; good luck to all the people trying so desperately to save our herds. Unless ranchers get money to preserve our mustangs and burros, the fight to do so will be long and difficult. The same holds true in Nevada and other parts of the west.
The thing I keep coming back to is the fact that cattlemen really feel they have some 'god-given right' to decide who lives and who dies. If they dislike wolves--they're done. If they dislike the mustangs and burros--they're finished too. If they dislike the mt. lions, or bobcats, or lynx or coyotes--they're done too.
These medieval types will tolerate elk, deer, black bear, brown bear, some mt. lions, moose, and others for their trophy heads, skins, and the 'macho image' their deaths bring to them when they are hunted--otherwise they'd all be gone too.
The land is unbelievably beautiful in the mountain west, the people are nice .......but their guns, their hunting, their views of wildlife are so archaic and un-life...that if their ranching way of living disappears, along with their cattle and be it.

With all the land that Wyoming has I can not believe there is no room for the horses. Of course there is but the people just don't want tot share it. Get rid of the people and keep the horses, it will be a much better state.

Ranchers are the biggest recipients of WELFARE. Thier welfare benefits cost as much or more than the food stamps that are distributed. They also think they have the right to determine who can live on the land and who should either die or be removed. Just glad the ranchers don't think of the Mustangs for "trophy hunting". Their cattle do more destruction to the land then the horse's could ever do in your and my lifetime.
Feed/water are at a dangerously low lever right now, scarce isn't a strong enuf word. Maintaining a water supply to all the animals on the land should not only be the BLM's top priority but also the ranchers. Time to take the beef to the market.

I know that being a vegetarian is not for everyone but I do ask those who are not to take a look at where your meat comes from. It is from these very farmers who freely use public lands and feel it is their right to do whatever they please. They have no respect or reverence for anything living and they will just keep taking and always want more. I am sorry but eating meat only perpetuates these people.

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.
