Shooting a wild horse
 
This just disgusts me. Can anything be done about this guy shooting a wild horse? He even has a picture of himself with it like its some type of trophy shot.

Feral Pigs, Feral Horses, Ignorant Liberals.

I particularly like the person in the comments that said " If this horse is NOT a branded blm mustang and it was on his land, he has every right to shoot it."


Apparently they don't know how the BLM works. Mustangs aren't branded and released again. :-| Very sad.

I don't believe this horse was in the US. But still sad to see.

Yeah - I just saw that someone posted that in the comments. I guess he pulled that off an Australian site? Yes, it is still sad to see and it seems to indicate he wants open hunting on the mustangs.

mustangs that are on Indian or private land are not considered BLM mustangs and do not have the same "rights", so to speak. NOT that i think what he did was okay - just saying.

Actually under the Free-roaming act of 1971 - just because they are not on public land it is still illegal to harass or kill them. Common misconception it seems. Now the private land owner can call the federal marshal and have the horses removed but they can not shoot them.

My husband just told me about this. It has been going around on FB as well.
His friends told hubby if you blow up the picture the horse has no whiskers, like as if he has been clipped.

Staged photo to stir ****.

Actually its from this website:

Not Your Typical Tolley

And considering everything else he has shot I really doubt it was stages, but it was in Australia. Not sure with that picture quality - even zooming in - how you would be able to tell if it had whiskers or not.

I was going to post the same thing. Wild Brumbie, I will assume they are shot all the time, I think some think of them as pests...
