Grim news – July 2, 2008

2 07 2008

If you haven’t already seen this news, I hate to be the bearer of bad news. If you’ve seen it from one source, here are a few more. The article headlines kinda say it all. The BLM’s Wild Horse and Advisory Board just met Monday in Reno, Nev., and that’s apparently when all this came out. I’m kinda stunned, so for now, read the articles linked here.

http://www.oregonlive.com/environment/index.ssf/2008/06/blm_considers_ending_wild_hors.html – Associated Press article titled “BLM considers ending wild horse roundups, killing some animals”

http://www.newsweek.com/id/144279 – July 1 Newsweek article titled “The Wild Horse Is Us: An advocate of the American West’s mustangs blasts a proposed government policy to cull the herds.” The figures at the beginning of the article are backward, I think.

http://www.newsweek.com/id/144415 – July 2 Newsweek article containing Sheryl Crow’s comments; includes information about James Kleinert’s film, “Saving the American Wild Horse”
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/25465974/ – MSNBC article titled “Feds consider euthanizing wild horses in West: Population in holding pens jumps in Nevada, elsewhere as adoptions dip”
http://www.wildhorsepreservation.com/news_alerts.html – article on the American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign Web site titled “BLM Considering Euthanasia for Thousands of Wild Horses”
