I agree with one of the above posters do we really need another thread on this when there is a recent one that has only just died down a bit?

Welcome to Facebook | Facebook

There has not been ONE wild horse rounded up for slaughter since they were protected and "managed" by the BLM sometime in the 60's.

One nice thing about a forum is that a member can chose to read any thread - if one finds it annoying, simply ignore it.

Although there are and have been many threads about slaughter, it seems to supply never ending fuel for discussion. As long as it is informative and stays civil, there is no reason not to have another one. (This is a subject that county (RIP) would always enjoy.)

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

The BLM may round mustangs up, but they're no longer rounded up for *slaughter*. They're usually rounded up and held at a BLM facility awaitng adoption or death from old age.

There are no longer slaughter houses open in the US.

I looked at the link you provided. The organization is trying to prevent the roundup and removal of a specific band of mustangs from a specific section of grazing land that apparently the BLM has other plans for.

I saw no mention of slaughter or helicopters.

maura, I believe they just reopened or are about to open one in WY. Montana is not far behind.

All I can find is they use helicopters to round them up then if they are injured they shoot them back at the BLM holding facility. In my research I read that it had been made illegal for someone who adopted a wild horse to send them for slaughter and illegal for the BLM to hand over titles if they knew they were planning on sending them for slaughter. Although this may not be true as I don't know how reliable the website was so feel free to research for yourself.

Eagles may soar but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.
