Bureau of Land Management on Rampage to Destroy Famous Wild Horse Herd

Cloud and the wild horses of Montana’s Pryor Mountains are world famous but fame it appears is not going to protect the herd from a drastic government round up planned to begin September 1st in their spectacular wilderness home.

There are currently only 190 wild horses (one year and older) living in the Pryor Mountains. The BLM plans to remove 70 of them, plus foals. According to the foremost equine geneticist, Dr. Gus Cothran, 150-200 adult horses are needed in the herd to ensure their genetic diversity, which is vital to their long term survival.

These 70 horses would be placed in jeopardy. Any horses over 10 years of age can be bought directly by killer buyers and transported over the Northern border to Canadian slaughterhouses or south into Mexico. Younger horses not adopted would be put into government holding with 33,000 others that the BLM has removed from the wild and has proposed killing because they can no longer afford to feed them.

BLM cites poor range condition as the reason to remove the horses but abundant snow and rain for the past two and a half years has produced wonderful range conditions according to all who have visited Cloud and his herd. The Agency is not listening to anyone. They want this herd gutted. Nearly all the mares returned to the range would be given an experimental two-year infertility drug, PZP-22.

This helicopter round up is just one among many that the BLM is trying to complete, perhaps before the Obama Administration can catch up with what is going on.

The Pryor Mountain wild horses are descendants of the Lewis and Clark horses who were stolen by the Crow Indians in the early 1800's. They can be traced further back to the horses brought over with the Spanish Conquistadors in 1500 making them one of the most Spanish of all wild horse herds in North America.

Tippi Hedren joins Honorary Board of Saving America's Horses

Tippi Hedren has joined “Saving America’s Horses” as an Honorary Board member. Hedren’s status as a public figure will help to raise attention and bring the controversial subject matter of this film to the public eye.

Tippi Hedren is the former New York fashion model who d├ębuted in a starring role in Hitchcock's classic “The Birds” where she earned her Golden Globe award. Between over twenty films and numerous television appearances, she's been involved in a wide variety of humanitarian and environmental causes, almost overshadowing her screen work. She has been honored with "The Helen Woodward Animal Center's Annual Humane Award" (1995), the prestigious Founder's Award from the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (1996) and the "Lion and Lamb Award" from Wildhaven (1997) for her work on behalf of animal rights and conservation. Perhaps Tippi Hedren's most unique endeavor is being "den mother" and close friend to sixty-odd big cats - lion, tiger, leopard, cougar, and servals at The Roar Foundation's Shambala Preserve near Acton, California.

Saving America’s Horses, A Nation Betrayed is a feature length documentary film currently in production through Humanion Films, Los Angeles, CA. This film follows the life story of three proud and majestic American horses , showing startling developments along the way that demonstrate what can go wrong when law makers and citizens put their faith in corrupt institutions and organizations. The film explores what should be “the quiet retirement of thoroughbreds”, “the freedom of wild horses” and “the peaceful demise of discarded horses”. A diverse array of prominent figures and horse experts cover a variety of sub stories about rescue, rehabilitation, and the slaughter of America's Horses.

Saving America's Horses adds Music to the Website

WFLF and Humanion Films extends a warm thanks to Debra Lopez for the use of her song, "Racing for Time". We would also like to thank Maria Daines and Paul Killington for their song, "Are You My Friend".

Canada and European Union Bans American Horsemeat

Europeans focus on food safety issue -- no more poisoned American horse meat

Hitchcock, TX (PRWEB) August 8, 2009 -- For decades, the gourmet diners of Europe and Japan have eaten American horse meat poisoned by chemical contamination. The horse flesh exporting by unscrupulous producers and horse slaughter plants will come to an end in April of 2010. The new rules enacted by the European Union will mandate chemical free horse meat entering those countries.

American horses are routinely given powerful chemicals prohibited for human consumption such as wormers, Phenylbutazone (Bute), and a host of other deadly medications which are life giving to a horse but cause serious medical issues when ingested by humans. Like DDT, banned for similar reasons, some of these compounds such as Bute remain in a horse's body long after administered. Studies indicate... (continued)
