STAND TOGETHER and TAKE ACTION to STOP this looming Genocidal Atrocity - Before it's too late

Background:
On Sept 9, 2016 the BLM (, an arm of the U.S. government) Advisory Board voted to recommend EXTERMINATING over 45,000 innocent wild American Mustangs and burros who have been brutally rounded up and are currently held wrongly under encampment.

There are over 200 million acres of rangelands in the U.S. where these horses could roam freely, but they are quickly being eliminated by the same governmental agencies that claim to protect them. Unless action is taken, America’s wild equids will continue to vanish – a potentially catastrophic scenario for generations to come.

We cannot allow the dangerous and violent expulsion of America’s Mustangs from our lands. You can help bring exposure to the systemic corruption that has left virtually worthless the Wild Free Roaming Horses and Burros Act, which is supposed to protect horses and burros, by sharing and cross-posting our links and information.
We can stop the killing and reverse the degradation to open rangelands caused by BLM mismanagement, and restore protections for the wild horses and burros, but we must act swiftly, get the true facts to the masses to effect the change that's needed.

We must stand together to put en end to the scandalous mistreatment of these sentient beings and extend a circle of compassion to all living things.

Saving America's Horses Alert! There has Not been a Retraction by the BLM

Direct questions to BLM head are ignored. Recommendation to destroy unadoptable wild horses and burros is left in place.

On Sept 20, 2016, Saving America's Horses contacted the head of the BLM raising questions regarding the recommendation to kill 45,000 wild horses and burros. 

We asked: 
  • If they had rejected last week's recommendation for mass extermination of America's captured wild horses and burros; 
  • If wild horses and burros on the range are also in danger of mass extermination;
  • For their confirmation that they will not use euthanasia as a means to manage America's wild horse and burro population;
  • If captured BLM horses and burros will be subjected to sale authority or the possibility of going to slaughter.

Instead of answering our questions they reaffirmed the following recommendation and told us their talking points.

"BLM should follow stipulations of WHB Act by offering all suitable animals in long and short term holding deemed unadoptable for sale without limitation or humane euthanasia. Those animals deemed unsuitable for sale should then be destroyed in the most humane manner possible.—Approved"

BLM  National Advisory Board Recommendations: https://goo.gl/vvUjsM 

There has been no retraction.

Anatomy of a Cover Up: A second warning to the public, "Don't be Duped." - Saving America's Horses


Now see "BLM Wild Horses and Burros Go to Slaughter"

September 17, 2016. Los Angeles, CA - Saving America's Horses issues a second warning to the public, "Don't be duped by the BLM and the recent flurry of media reports headlining relief for 45,000 wild horses and burros.

Plus, Saving America's Horses releases the 3rd PSA today, from the series, FACTS THAT REFUTE BLM MYTHS. This PSA features grand jury evidence of BLM horses going to slaughter as presented in the international award winning documentary, Saving America's Horses: A Nation Betrayed. “Filled with facts… Saving America’s Horses details the corrupt and negligent practices surrounding the slaughter of over 100,000 horses a year. Special censure is reserved for the Bureau of Land Management’s apparent brief against wild horses and the dismantling a protective 1971 government act.” —  NY TIMES

Saving America's Horses warns the public, "Don't be duped" by misleading headlines and propaganda. America's horses are NOT out of danger.

Reuters: 
“BLM spokesperson, Tom Gorey, said in an email that the agency will continue its current policy of caring for unadopted or unsold wild horses and burros and will not sell or send any animals to slaughter."
“BLM is expected to formally respond to the panel at its next meeting within months.”

TRANSLATION: The fate of 45,000 Wild Horses and Burros remains under threat of extermination pending a formal BLM decision, after its next meeting, TBA spring 2017.

Huffington Post:
“The BLM will issue a formal response at the next board meeting in spring 2017."
“Despite the recommendation, the BLM will not euthanize or sell without limitation any healthy animals, agency spokeswoman Courtney Whiteman told The Huffington Post in an email.

TRANSLATION:  Selling the animals ‘without limitation’ or under sale authority effectively strips their protection from abuse and slaughter. And since BLM fails to enforce its sale authority policy, countless wild horses and burros remain in danger.

Fox News:
“…we will continue with our current policy, BLM said.”

TRANSLATION: Countless wild horses and burros may continue to be killed under BLM status quo practices.

The Arizona Republic:
“BLM: We do not 'and will not euthanize' wild horses.”

TRANSLATION: The BLM uses a variety of other methods to kill wild horses.

ProPublica: The U.S. Department of Interior Bureau of Land Management (BLM) sold 1,700 captured wild Mustangs to a known kill buyer by the name of Tom Davis, who purchases horses and ships them for slaughter in Mexico. BLM approved the sales to Davis, (who also works as a livestock hauler out of La Jara, Colorado) under the guise that Davis would sell the horses for use in movies in Mexico. Reportedly the BLM began shipping “truckloads and truckloads” of horses to Davis after his neighbor and business associate, Ken Salazar, became Interior Secretary in 2009. Salazar, a fifth-generation rancher, is heavily criticized for his involvement supporting the removal of Mustangs from public lands to make room for livestock grazing. Wild horses are additionally supposed to be protected by appropriations language, passed annually by Congress, which prohibits the BLM from selling captured wild horses for slaughter.

TRANSLATION: BLM wild horses and burros, sadly, do go to slaughter.

America’s horses are NOT protected and they are NOT out of danger.

Saving America’s Horses Warns the Public Not to Let Down Guard for America’s Horses

America’s Wild Horses and Burros are NOT Out of Danger

Sept. 16, 2016, Los Angeles, CA - Fate of 44,000 Wild Horses remains under Threat of EXTERMINATION pending BLM decision TBA spring 2017. Meanwhile status quo BLM practices leave horses with no real protection from killing or slaughter.

The BLM (Bureau of Land Management) neither approves nor rejects recommendation by its Board to exterminate 44,000 wild American horses.  A number of recent media reports have essentially renounced valid concerns which threaten the lives of over 45,000 wild horses and burros in America.  In truth, the BLM has yet to decide the fate these innocent animals.  Reportedly the BLM has no intention of issuing a formal response on the issue until sometime in 2017.

Saving America’s Horses, an international initiative under the Wild For Life Foundation points to the BLM’s long history of creative damage control and propaganda campaigns when confronted with public exposure and uproar over its highly camouflaged wild horse and burro program.   “The BLM claims to protect the wild horses and burros under a so-called “without limitation” policy which they fail to enforce,” said Katia Louise, president of the Wild For Life Foundation.  Amidst the media flurry, it’s been reported that Tom Gorey, a spokesman for the bureau said that the agency will “continue its current policy of caring for unadopted or unsold wild horses and burros” and will “not sell or send any animals to slaughter.”

“To sell the animals ‘without limitation’ effectively strips their protection from abuse and slaughter,” adds Katia Louise.  “In other words, countless wild horses and burros will continue to die under BLM status quo practices.”

Despite mainstream news reports, America’s horses are not out of danger, said Wild For Life Foundation (WFLF) representatives.   Saving America’s Horses is therefore stepping up its educational campaign in effort to increase exposure of the truth to the public. In a statement from WFLF’s Saving America’s Horses Initiative, “We will be strengthening our fight to stop the killing, end the cruelty and save America’s horse and burro population from suffering gruesome death from roundups and slaughter.”  On Sept. 14, 2016, The Wild For Life Foundation, announced its release of a new series of PSA's based on evidence presented in the powerful documentary film, Saving America's Horses: A Nation Betrayed (2012, 2016)

Saving America’s Horses: A Nation Betrayed is a “searing indictment of governmental agencies involved in the slaughter of horses. The impassioned pic amasses impressive documentation, visual and testimonial, of systemic mistreatment of the animals, illegal and fraudulent practices regulating their sale, and the very real possibility of their extinction in the wild.” - Variety

With over 44,000 innocent wild American Mustangs lives at stake, and under what is now recognized as a valid veiled threat of EXTERMINATION by the BLM, it's critical for these innocent beings that the true facts get out to the masses. WFLF is asking horse and animal enthusiasts to help stop the dangerous and violent expulsion of America’s Mustangs from our lands by taking action. Supporters are encouraged to sign the Saving America’s Horses’ petition and join the Saving America’s Horses Initiative.  Through these efforts we will expose the systemic corruption that has left virtually worthless the Wild Free Roaming Horses and Burros Act, which is supposed to protect horses and burros. We can stop the killing and reverse the degradation to open rangelands caused by BLM mismanagement, but we must remain vigilant.  Horse and burro supporters can stay informed and get the facts they need through the WFLF Saving America’s Horses educational PSA series recently launched through the Saving America’s Horses Facebook page.

Together We can Make a Difference

When times are difficult for people, they can be insurmountable for horses. That's where we come in. Like you, we are passionate about helping the animals, that's why we do what we do.

This is Mariachi - he was so weak and emaciated when we rescued him that we had to lift him into the trailer to bring him to safety. His full recovery and the countless other lives that we continually save through our lifesaving missions, are costly, especially for a grassroots volunteer charity rescue like ours. However, these lifesaving missions are essential if we want to help our fellow animals. The results from your kind hay donations and our tireless volunteer work in the trenches, have proven time and time again to save and protect these animal's lives.  We can't do it without you. We need your continued support to carry out these urgent missions!
Mariachi was saved from starvation and slaughter.  He is one of many animals you will be helping with your compassionate gift. These animals are counting on us.  We are their voice and they need to be heard.

Wild For Life Foundation is reaching out to all its volunteers and supporters to help raise funds for the purchase of hay. It can take over $6,500 per month for the purchase of hay to feed the rescue horses and burros at our rescue shelter and sanctuary. Please consider making a tax deductible donation so that our much needed work on behalf of the animals can continue.

Worldwide Release of ‘Saving America’s Horses’ Renews Hope for Mainstream Action

BREAKING NEWS


Awe Inspiring Landmark Premiere Spotlights Urgent Global Environmental and Humanitarian Crisis

August 12, 2016, Studio City, CA – WFLF Humanion Films today announced the release of its featurette documentary film Saving America's Horses. The powerful film contrasts shots of noble, beautiful, galloping animals with well-researched, shocking statistics and brings to screen a searing indictment of special interests and governmental agencies involved in the predatory exploits of America's horses. Viewers can now watch the film through Vimeo On-Demand in HD or SD on their TVs, phones, computers and tablets. 

Audiences worldwide can now watch the SAVING AMERICA’S HORSES’ featurette online and share the film with their friends!  The rental of the SAVING AMERICA’S HORSES featurette includes 24 hour streaming access for just $5 through Vimeo which can also be enjoyed through iOS, Apple TV, Roku, and Chromecast.


SAVING AMERICA’S HORSES is a powerful podium with a dynamic reach to humanitarians and animal lovers worldwide. This intelligent exposé also reveals how the public has been misled by several government agencies and corporate interests that run over the laws that are supposed to protect the horses, people and the environment.  "Saving America’s Horses helps spotlight what is becoming an urgent global humanitarian crisis – the pollution of fresh water. The RBC Blue Water Project is our commitment to protecting the lifeblood of this planet that we all need to share." — Jeff Boyd, Regional President, Ontario North and East, RBC Royal Bank

"It is the time we live in now; the moment of truth... it is time to come together and acknowledge what we are doing to ourselves" - Daniel Ramos, tribal spiritual leader.  Film North's theme; One Word, One World; Environment became the perfect conduit for “Saving America’s Horses” environmental message. Winner of Best Environmental Film in Canada, this intelligent and powerful film explores the destruction of life on our planet by looking at the pollution of fresh water, the degradation of open range lands and how we treat the animals that we share our world with; such as the horse.

“Unpacks a multi-layered conspiracy — fueled by a parade of misinformation— against the survival and proliferation of horses.”
— Gary Goldstein LA TIMES

The SAVING AMERICA’S HORSES featurette brings to screen brand new scenes and footage, plus updated statistics from the all new digitally re-mastered full length documentary film, SAVING AMERICA’S HORSES: A NATION BETRAYED now slated for release through educational venues including universities, schools and libraries and onto television/ cable and DVD. The SAVING AMERICA'S HORSES documentary has won numerous awards on the international festival circuit and was successfully released to theaters in LA and NYC in December of 2012.  This powerful feature length film also qualified for Oscar consideration which brought the issues impacting America's horses into the mainstream. 

Bringing together a wide spectrum of hard-hitting, sometimes opposing viewpoints the film lays down evidence for the Full Monty of objectionable behavior, including neglect, cruelty, deception, and profiteering. The victims run the gamut, from those who eat the meat filled with carcinogenic and other harmful drugs, to the horses themselves, wild horses poached from government land, Thoroughbred race horses who pass through the system to oblivion, domestic horses who outlive their welcome and are sent to slaughter. SAVING AMERICA’S HORSES is a compelling, provocative and a rallying cry for justice and integrity.


“An intelligent, powerful film, “SAVING AMERICA'S HORSES” is like a scorched earth weapon aimed at incinerating the lies and ending horse slaughter with laser sharp truth--Agent Orange to the lying, ignorant malevolence and greed that continue to exact a terribly cruel toll on horses and people. Please support this film,” says Paula Bacon, former mayor, Kaufman, TX.  "Saving America's Horses is Fantastic! Powerful and compelling” — Greg MacGillivary, MacGillivary Freeman Films (IMAX)

Critic reviews for the feature length version of this film describe it as "A provocative rallying cry for justice and integrity" - THE QUAD CINEMA, NYC "Outstanding" - LA SPLASH MAGAZINE "Impassioned" - HOLLYWOOD REPORTER "Shocking statistics… "A searing indictment" -VARIETY "Filled with facts" - NY TIMES “A broad and balanced spectrum of opinion through interviews with veterinarians, trainers, policymakers and celebrity horsemen including Paul Sorvino and Willie Nelson, among others” - ABOUT.COM

The issues impacting America’s horses have raised international concern for the welfare of the horses, the people and the environment. Many of the nation's foremost experts and leaders in the movement have united together to have their voices heard through SAVING AMERICA'S HORSES.  With over 88,000,000 people that attend horse-related events in the USA each year, America’s interest in what’s happening to them has never been greater.


“America's horses are disappearing and along with them goes a part of us, says filmmaker, Katia Louise.  “We can't bring back those we've lost, but we have the power to make a difference for generations to come.” In an effort to save, protect and preserve wild and domestic equines, as opposed to the promotion of horse slaughter and widespread roundups throughout the American West, Saving America’s Horses’ Director, Katia Louise is calling on members of the public who care about the horses and the environment to join in a united stance for the horses with Saving America’s Horses by going to www.savingamericashorses.org and clicking on the join button, which will continue to raise awareness and provide ongoing education on this critical issue.

The Wild For Life Foundation is thrilled about the success of SAVING AMERICA'S HORSES, and to make a real difference, philanthropic sponsorships, grants and other sources of funding are being sought to put the powerful full length feature film out into the mainstream. Proceeds from the rental of the Saving America’s Horses featurette benefit the Wild For Life Foundation charity and its Saving America’s Horses program. Donations made to the Wild For Life Foundation are tax deductible to the full extent permitted by law. Federal ID No: 26-3052458

Saving America's Horses fights for lives of at-risk horses and burros

At risk horses and burros caught in the crossfire after losing their freedom, their families and nearly losing
their lives.  These innocent horses and burros, saved from cruelty, roundups and slaughter each have a story of hope, survival and courage to tell and they are counting on caring and compassionate people like you to share their stories, help keep them safe, and encourage others to say NO to animal cruelty and abuse.

"Together, we are their voice and their voice must be heard," says Katia Louise, director of Saving America's Horses. Katia is also the founder and president of the Wild For Life Foundation, the parent charity of Saving America's Horses, an international consortium of veterinarians, equestrian professionals, equine welfare experts, researchers, horse advocates, scientists, film and television artists, and concerned citizens working in concert to promote wild horse preservation initiatives with a focus on the prevention of equine cruelty and ending the slaughter of America's horses.  Katia  
has dedicated her life's work to the protection of America's horses from horrific cruelty, savage brutality and barbaric genocidal abuse.  Katia is the filmmaker of "Saving America's Horses" the lifesaving  and international award winning documentary movie. Katia and WFLF's dedicated team of volunteer rescuers work tirelessly everyday in the trenches, evacuating cruelty victims to safety, nursing their wounds, providing them nutritious food and tender loving care. But they cannot do this lifesaving work alone. You can make a difference in the individual lives of America's at-risk and victimized equines who desperately need help right now, by pledging your support today.  Please help end the suffering will help to save countless lives by taking part. Stand with us to end equine cruelty.

Cochise is a wild Navajo Mustang who was captured during brutal US government sponsored roundups. He lost his freedom, his native homelands, his family and nearly lost his life to barbaric slaughter. WFLF saved his life and evacuated him to safety where he was reunited with his closest family members. Cochise and his family's recovery continues on a daily basis through the charitable Wild Horse and Burro Rescue and Recovery Mission of the Wild For Life Foundation (WFLF), a 501c3 volunteer charity dedicated to saving, protecting and preserving wild and domestic equines.

WFLF's rescue and sanctuary program provides lifesaving aid to at-risk and victimized horses and burros like Cochise and his family that have nowhere else to go. Tax deductible contributions made to WFLF pay for lifesaving transport, vet medical care, nutritious hay and safe and peaceful housing. Donations can be made online, or by mail in any amount, and will help save lives today.

"The ongoing influx of calls for our emergency rescue services means that Wild for Life Foundation is constantly stretched in our ability to effectively respond to crisis," adds Ms Louise.  "Without crucial funding, there have been occasions when we could not save animals in dire need.  Therefore it is with great urgency that we make this plea for your continued support."

Take part by sharing, forwarding, cross-posting and make a difference in the life of a rescue horse or burro today by giving what you can. No gift is too small.  Thank you

The Future of America’s Wild Horses and Burros - Can we save them before they become extinct in the wild?

Never before has there been a need so great for people to ban together for the protection of one of our most precious and historic natural resources, the horse. – Katia Louise, President of the Wild for Life Foundation

Substantial evidence indicates that the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) intends to eliminate
wild horses and burros from America’s public landscape.  Countless American wild horses and burros are systemically mistreated and removed from their legally protected homes in the wild by the BLM despite U.S. policies which mandate their protection and preservation on public lands.  Unless and until the BLM is stopped, the future for America’s majestic horses and burros will continue to be in jeopardy. The stakes could not be higher; their very survival is at stake and time is running out.

“Contrary to the BLM’s claims that wild horses are overpopulating, statistics show that vast numbers of wild equines are disappearing from the American West,” states Katia Louise, President of the Wild for Life Foundation, and Director, Saving America’s Horses.  “In the 19th century, more than 2 million wild horses roamed the West, but independent analysis of the Bureau of Land Management’s own data indicates that there may now be less than 15,000 wild horses roaming freely on public lands.”

There are over 200 million acres of range-lands in the U.S. where these horses could roam freely, but they are quickly being eliminated by the same governmental agencies that claim to protect them. Unless action is taken, America’s wild equids will continue to vanish – a potentially catastrophic scenario for generations to come.

Wild horses are labeled as “feral” by proponents of slaughter in denial of paleontological evidence showing that the horse evolved on the North American continent over 50,000,000 years ago.  

With human encroachment on natural habitats a constant feature of our modern world, America's wild and historic Mustangs are quickly losing their Native home lands. As the remaining number of Wild Horses in the U.S. nears extinction, the need for their legal protection becomes tantamount to their survival as a species. America’s Wild Horses cannot be reproduced once they are gone.

Congressional findings and declaration of policy state that wild free-roaming horses and burros are living symbols of the historic and pioneer spirit of the West; that they contribute to the diversity of life forms within the Nation and enrich the lives of the American people; and that these horses and burros are fast disappearing from the American scene. Under public law and policy of Congress wild free-roaming horses and burros are to be protected from capture, branding, harassment, or death; and to accomplish this they are to be considered in the area where presently found, as an integral part of the natural system of the public lands.

However, wild horses are also labeled as “destructive” or “invasive species” by the livestock industry as a means to justify their removal. However, the reintroduction of horses to range-lands can in truth rejuvenate the environment. As brought to the screen in the acclaimed documentary film, ‘Saving America’s Horses: A Nation Betrayed”, wild horses are being successfully returned to landscapes in both Britain and the Oostvaardersplassen of the Netherlands.  Studies of these conservation grazing is practices reveal that the re-introduction of wild equines to the woodlands and pastures has in fact successfully restored the natural environment and wildlife. 

In the classic book, Welfare Ranching: The Subsidized Destruction of the American West, J. Boone Kauffman, Ph.D., Professor of Ecosystem Sciences in the Department of Fisheries and Wildlife, Oregon State University, Corvallis, gives testimony to the far-reaching and devastating ecological consequences of government-subsidized livestock grazing through his scientifically supported work, “Lifeblood of the West”; “… livestock grazing has been the most widespread cause of ecological degradation of riparian/stream ecosystems. More riparian areas and stream miles are affected by livestock grazing than by any other type of land use.”

When it comes to “livestock grazing” on public lands, permit holders are able to increase their stock by grazing farm animals such as cattle on America’s open range-lands. But in the U.S. horses are not produced for food, and cattle ranchers see them as competitors for the grazing of free forage on public land which they could otherwise use for their livestock.  However, recent findings through Princeton University have shown how combining wild equine grazing together with cattle can create beneficial effects; not only for the environment but for cattle as well. "Clearly, blanket statements that wild equids invariably compete with livestock can no longer be accepted” states Michael Coughenour, a senior research scientist at the Colorado State University Natural Resource Ecology Laboratory. 

While USDA Secretary of Agriculture, Tom Vilsack, publicly claims to be against horse slaughter, the USDA has been rallying tribal leaders to support the reopening of horse slaughter in the U.S. However, Wild for Life Foundation President, Katia Louise brings to light a startling recent report which exposes the USDA’s distribution of misinformation provided to the American tribal leaders. This well-substantiated report entitled In Truth Wild Horses on Native Land and Tongue, reveals evidence of meetings held by the USDA with tribal leaders for the purpose of getting them to distribute ‘misinformation’ to their congressional delegations about horse slaughter and the removal of America’s wild horses.

As part of a larger pattern, just a few weeks ago a strikingly similar situation to the USDA’s activities in support of horse slaughter took place when the BLM denied having any knowledge or involvement related the sale of America’s wild horses and burros to slaughter. In a recent Federal Report which shocked the Nation it was reported that the BLM’s largest buyer of wild horses was in truth sending them to slaughter.  With a closer look at the management of wild horses by the BLM, and in stark contrast to the BLM’s claims of purportedly protecting America’s wild equines, the BLM’s proposed Budget for Fiscal Year 2017 (Section 110) reveals BLM’s intentions to further strip America’s wild horses and burros of their protective legal titles. The Wild Horse Freedom Federation recently discovered the BLM’s proposed Budget for Fiscal Year 2017, and says it leads to the slaughter and sterilization of America’s wild horses.  Critics view this latest move by the BLM as a wider campaign endorsed by the Obama Administration.

President Obama’s appointment of Ken Salazar as Secretary of the Interior, which oversees the BLM, together with the U.S. Forest Service, has continued to conduct scores of roundups across 12 Western U.S. states resulting in the capture and eradication of countless wild horses. After Salazar stepped down in a wave of controversy in February of 2013, President Obama appointed Sally Jewel to the position— a veteran of the oil industry. “While many had high hopes that Sally Jewell would direct a shift in policy, she has instead been silent on reversing agency roundup policies throughout the West,” observes Katia Louise. “And many believe she has in fact promoted and intensified such efforts.”

Can we preserve and protect one of America’s most iconic species before they become extinct in the wild and reverse the degradation to open range-lands caused by their removal? The Wild For Life Foundation (WFLF), a federally registered nonprofit says the answer is YES; a resounding YES!

"Never before has there been a need so great for people to ban together for the protection of one of our most precious and historic natural resources, the horse," said Ms. Louise.  "Regardless of why,
we as a culture, are so repulsed by the thought of consuming horse flesh, and the reasons are many; if we fail to uphold our fundamental moral and social responsibilities, we are in effect dooming the fate of our own humanity.

“Most people don’t have any idea that America’s wild horses are disappearing and going to slaughter,” added Ms. Louise.  “Unless and until the BLM is stopped, the future for America’s majestic horses and burros will continue to be in jeopardy. Armed with the true facts and uniting together to make our united voice heard for the horses and burros, we can educate and effect change.”

In an effort to save, protect and preserve wild and domestic equines, as opposed to the promotion of horse slaughter and widespread roundups throughout the American West, Wild for Life Foundation’s President, Katia Louise is calling on members of the public who care about the horses to join in a united stance for the horses with WFLF Saving America’s Horses by going to wildforlifefoundation.org and clicking on the join button, which will continue to raise awareness and provide ongoing education on this critical issue. Ms. Louise says, “Making your voice heard will ultimately bring this unjust, cruel and barbaric practice to an end.”
