My amazing Colorado contact took the time to send this to me via email.  Keep up the fight dear friend.

Good article on our “wild horse program” and the current state of affairs.

My comment below. Permission to crosspost.

Monika Courtney

Using language such as “emotional horsy lovers” was long used to dismiss efforts by the opposition and enemies of wild horses, which feel either exposed or threatened in their framework, to build a shield against the rising pressure to their cattle kingdoms. Keep up the good work, all of you. The call for change is loud and clear; Americans will not stand by and witness the continuing abuse and cruelty while those in charge remain passive by choice. Decades of mismanagement to cave into the cattle muscle bearing monopoly are a contributing factor to the shrill outcry by some in the advocacy. When horses continue to die, suffer and remain trapped in a propaganda oriented mindset, is it a wonder? The public has not only offered input, help and ideas how to improve this mess. The public has been pushed aside with clever PR stunts and the constant pacifying statements in hopes we go away. The excuse based communication has more than not infuriated members of the animal advocates whose sole goal is to improve the lives of these horses. A thorn in the side of those who use any twist to justify their own callous or cruel actions, the advocacy has successfully shed light onto the inhumane standards which call for national reform. The tunnel vision of those who state helicopter touching horses is justified because these horses are “wild” reflects the bigger mentality under which the wild horses have been doomed.  A lack of education in the general public adds to the national crisis. The current state of affairs is a product of secretive decade-long corruption, monopolized by special agendas and greed, with leadership appeasing the outraged public with yet more shield off comments. Mocking the efforts of advocates calling for increased welfare and higher standards  in a time of national scandals dooming over the agency, is a tool used by those whose superlative domains and influence are threatened. No horse responds acceptingly to being touched by a helicopter, whether it is domesticated or wild. Yet this is exactly the absurdity on which this battle is raging. An agency, aligned with profit driven agendas, using any and all twists in hopes to alleviate national outrage on their current highly flawed methods. Horses suffer, period. Horses are not treated with the respect and care that would reflect the ironic non-existent “reform and transparency” of those who shout it coming. The American public needs to continue to demand reform, as the silence of new Secretary Jewell deems instructive of the shepherding that exists deep within, while BLM wants the public to believe they care. I am awaiting more action for horses in holding as the current facilities reflect the dire minimalist attitude dooming over any aspect of the program that is not in the interest of the very animals involved. Americans must continue to call in a chorus for reform, to see betterment against the sinister establishment inflicting this irreparable destruction while alternatives such as Reserve Design and proposals for self-stabilizing, sustainable solutions in the wild are on the table. We call on BLM to work with us, not against us. I call on HSUS to mandate immediate measures to take effect. The standby or diplomacy approach has failed our horses. Provision of shelter for holding is a call that has gone national as of last week. In a program allocating millions of tax funds to malignantly driven round ups to evict horses as I type, the agency’s claim of horses in “the open” not needing shade to excuse their absence of shelter  is refuted by experts. It is a matter of priorities in which we have seen where they stood for BLM for the last 40 yrs.  Any horse seeks shelter, if given a choice. Chutes, flags, panels, fences are not part of the “open range” yet they pose no concern to BLM. Dismissing mustangs as feral is another ploy to distract. Honing such statements shows the core value of those we have exposed to be deceptive. Dismissing real science and the work of capable experts willing to contribute to the much needed improvement of the program shows a fiefdom mentality of biblical proportions to gear to those who used the wild horses to benefit.
Options are available to improve herd management in the wild as BLM was assigned to do.  The extended research by experts on how to achieve a balance and truly manage, not extinct these animals, is smugly dismissed. Instead, the pilfering of wild horses continues under guise of managing, whilst all input from the public is ignored. The disregards for welfare in holding, where deaths are deflated or go unreported, are of great concern. The initial installing of a sprinkler for relief is noted and must lead to more efficient permanent infrastructure. These horses have no enrichment, no basic comfort but minimal care. They can be given a better quality of life after the traumatic experiences of being evicted, separated from their bands and degraded into warehoused, sacked commodities. It is just once again the question:  where are the priorities of BLM?  To mock those who drive for more humane treatment?  To push for slaughter as a ploy to deter those defending the horses and their rightful habitat? To issue trivial statements instead of seeking real progress and work with the American public? It remains to be seen. In the meantime, the collective call of people for betterment in holding and on the range will continue. The inevitable urgency is clear and demands the attention of all animal welfare organizations to take note and get involved. The lingering of this debate as a politically influenced soap opera is not acceptable. These are America’s horses, and Americans are calling on BLM to change course.  Provide appropriate shelter/relief to holding (suffering exacerbated to increased numbers of equines who should be on the range, not corralled), proposals of workable, cost-efficient ideas have been submitted.
Contemplate solutions that reflect a result of a dialog with the public as well, not only the cattle parties. Balance must be restored, not only on our public lands, but within the think tank that has led to the current reality.

Canadian Wild Horse Foundation has launched a Federal Petition

Canadian Wild Horse Foundation

For Immediate Release
Canadian Wild Horse Foundation (CWH) launches Federal Petition: Alberta Wild Horses. “Heritage Animal”
Canadian Wild Horse Foundation (CWH) has launched a federal petition, which will be submitted to the Canadian House
of Commons August 2013. The petition urges the Government of Canada to protect the wild horses of Alberta by
designating them a “Heritage Animal”. The campaign to save Albertaʼs wild horses is actively supported by both local and
international equine enthusiasts and celebrity.

Today, the wild horses of Alberta fall under the “Stray Animals Act” which classifies them as feral and leaves them
severely unprotected under the Law. They are at serious risk of having their herd(s) population fall below the required
numbers needed to sustain the natural balance of a healthy gene pool. These horses have an abundance of natural
predators and harsh living conditions to contend with and are now forced to survive government licensed trapping that not
only send these magnificent animals into the slaughterhouses for human consumption but also seriously risk the future of
Albertaʼs wild horse herds. According to ESRD (Alberta Environment & Sustainable Resource Development) between
December 2011 and February 2012 there were 216 wild horses captured through a possible 237 permit licenses
distributed by the ESRD. This was a record high cull.

Wild horses have roamed Albertaʼs Crown land for hundreds of years. They are born, live and die in the wild; they are not
a stray-animal. They have contributed to the natural eco-system for centuries and are an integral part of it. It is time we let
them live wild and free, so that future generations will be able to appreciate not only their contribution to our countries
history but their beauty in a natural environment.

Many Canadianʼs are unaware of the wild horseʼ existence and their immense contribution to the history of Canada. CWH
is working to change this. CWH believes it is of the utmost importance to protect the iconic wild horse herds of Alberta
before it is to late. The federal petition is in response to concerned citizens who have initiated letters, emails and phone
calls to political bodies that have fallen on deaf ears.

CWH is urging all Canadians to support the cause to save our wild horses by signing the federal petition available for
download on CWH Facebook, Google+ Linked In and You Tube Profiles.

Canadian Wild Horse Foundation (CWH) is a group of determined citizens dedicated to the preservation and well being of

http://canadianhorsedefencecoalition.wordpress.com/2013/02/14/chdc-reposts-proof-of-cfia-failure-phenylbutazone-positive-horse-sent-to-slaughter-and-through-the-food-chain/

As the world, and especially the horse world, watches as the horsemeat scandal unfolds in Europe and the U.K., the CHDC is reposting “Proof of CFIA Failure“, the story of Silky Shark, a Standardbred racehorse who was slaughtered and slipped through the system to dinner plates, when his carcass should have been condemned due to phenylbutazone contamination.

 

Canada’s Bloody Secret is that this country enables the mass brutality and inhumane treatment of both US and Canadian horses. Why, because it is a multimillion dollar industry, fueled by greed and a total disregard for life. The US banned their own equine slaughter plants many years ago, so Canada took up the opportunity to make money by importing tens of thousands of US horses destined for slaughter and horse meat exportation to Europe. Our own wild horses face the same total disregard and what few wild numbers are being exterminated because they have no protection and are considered feral vermin. Retired racehorses, competition horses are all now part of the growing horse meat industry.

With former Ontario PremierMcGuinty’s closure of Ontario racetracks that number of equine victims has increased, these horses contain toxic medicines administered during their racing and competitive careers that make the meat unfit for human consumption. The EU has already launched a full scale investigation into consumer fraud against companies within the EU that have failed to advise consumers that horse meat is often the prime ingredient in their products.


Regardless of the contaminants, horses continue to be exploited by any and all means possible at the hands of the greedy, self justified pro-slaughter advocates, who disregard the legal lands given to and what little protection there is for horses across the US and Canada.


Canada continues to bloody her hands and will continue to do so on this issue, just as she stains herself with the blood of murdered seals and by importing cat/dog fur products from China.


Until such time as Private Members Bills that are brought before the House of Commons demanding increased and strengthened Animal Protection Laws for this country no longer get defeated in their Second Reading (and there have been so many) nothing will change in this country. It is a total ongoing disgrace period!!! Shameful to a degree that cannot be described in words!!

Over a month ago I announced via FaceBook that I was, after long hard thought, retiring from advocacy.  Perhaps I used the wrong terminology, sabbatical is the term I should have used.  Suffering from Compassion Fatigue, I need a break, the length of which is unknown.

Anyone who is bombarded on a daily basis with the continued horrors inflicted upon animals, anyone who must physically clean up the mess left behind by irresponsible pet owners, administer care to the abandoned and the suffering, anyone who works in shelters and vet hospitals will in time go through Compassion Fatigue.  Similar to Post Trauma Stress Disorder, the effects of Compassion Fatigue can be and are devastating.

Despite the need for peace and respite from advocacy there are issues that continue to eat at my soul, no inner peace can be found as long as animals suffer at the hands of man.

I received this email just the other day from Sinika, with the Canadian Horse Defence Coalition, and with her permission have copied and pasted it below.

Canada continues the blood bath in the equine slaughter plants in this country.  Canada continues to enable the horrific BLM roundups of wild horses in the US by importing these animals for slaughter into our country.

We all thought that the recent XL Meat scandal was bad enough.  We learned how our Canadian Food Inspection Agency dropped the ball on that one.  Well the CFIA continues to drop the ball, by not effectively and efficiently monitoring horse slaughter in this country, and by allowing contaminated horse meat to be exported from this country.  But really, think about it, can we expect anything less, after what we have already learned?

Once you have read Sinika’s  email, please take the time to visit this additional  link below regarding ‘Animal Angels’ Investigation of  the “Bouvry’s Slaughter Pipeline”. “Bouvry Exports operates one of the largest horse slaughter plants in Canada approved to export horse meat to the EU. Bouvry Exports owns about 2000 acres of land near Fort Macleod, where they fatten US and Canadian horses in large feedlots.”

Warning the pictures which are exposing this horrendous inhumane treatment of horses awaiting slaughter are very graphic.

http://campaign.r20.constantcontact.com/render?llr=whxo74bab&v=001rfHpJW7JhgDr8qwFNDbXg9Pu9-IzZcEd7xgB8eBrxCjUoheS_2QY-8GOquJ-4WBdFdNJaacsldVMviXrVCbFa4AZZ7i32KMc3B_FLV8mlryiahf_PcKjTGPWxg9wJVzu3qZCw_0JtgRgCZ91IxGbsqFVIljvA04MDFO1YByYstl7dog3Npbd-7HZs-HjCMuEMA0DRiV22etN6gBwoP8nKfLMBsUF5cKSoOCHNnQtFHUmdWSHOAa1ke7TlEZd83Z6

We cannot allow the continuation of such inhumane treatment to continue.  We all know about the Factory Farms, we all know about the Puppy and Kitten Mills, we all know about the Dog Fighting Rings, the Racing Industry, the Circuses and the Rodeos….but more must be done to end the equine slaughter for profit and greed and the exploitation of lands established as protected areas for wild horses, we must all put an end to the Canadian export of tainted meat unfit for human consumption, and any and all Canadian imports of products into this country from the cruel exploitative practices of other nations against animals.

 

Below is Sinika’s email: posted with her permission

Subject: The life and death of a racehorse, and the chilling implications
Date: Thu, 20 Dec 2012 09:23:03 -0800

The Life and Death of Silky Shark, a Racehorse

 

In July 2011, a Standardbred U.S. racehorse named Silky Shark died in a Quebec slaughterhouse.

 

The Canadian Horse Defence Coalition tracked the evidence, showing that Silky Shark had been administered phenylbutazone (a deadly drug that must never enter the food chain) and subsequently slipped through the system undetected by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.

 

Jack Rodolico of Latitude News has produced an exemplary account of the fate of this beautiful horse – Silky Shark’s life in the racing industry, how he fell through the cracks, and what chilling implications his death holds in terms of animal protection and food safety.

Reblogged from CHDC:

Is anyone home at the CFIA?

We have received several reports that the CFIA is not returning phone calls and is sending out a generic auto response email in regards to recent concerns brought forth over horses being live shipped to Japan for slaughter. Questions are not being answered – the CFIA is, yet again, not taking responsibility for their actions. While we are not surprised by this lack of communication and poor judgement, we need to show them that we aren’t going to stop pursuing this until we see and end to it.

Going forward, please direct your email complaints to these CFIA officials in Ottawa.  You can copy and paste the email addresses and compose your own message to all five: nicole.cormier@inspection.gc.ca, george.dapont@inspection.gc.ca, Ritz.G@parl.gc.ca, Ian.Alexander@inspection.gc.ca, Martine.Dubuc@inspection.gc.ca

(Dr. Nicole Cormier is a CFIA Humane Transportation of Animals Program Specialist, George Da Pont is the President of the CFIA, Gerry Ritz is Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food, Dr. Ian Alexander is Chief Veterinary Officer for the CFIA and Dr. Martine Dubuc is Chief Food Safety Officer for the CFIA.)

Please be respectful BUT:

Demand an answer.

Demand to know why, for the past 20 years, the CFIA have not been enforcing their own regulations.

Demand to know how many horses have died because of their negligence.

Demand to know what changes will be made to ensure that no more horses die, overcrowded in crates so small that they cannot stand in a natural position.

Demand to know why the countries where these horses are shipped to don’t have to report what condition the horses arrive in.

Note:  it has recently been revealed by the CFIA that horses originating from Canada arrived dead in Japan in August 2012.

Here’s the link for the October 18, 2012 CHDC news release, “CFIA Fails Again at Enforcing Regulations for Live Horse Exports to Japan”

  News from Colorado contact:

The plight of mustangs and burros is a hidden tragedy – Americans do not  realize what is taken from them and how cruelly. The footage of recent stampedes  is shocking, the hasty gathers and wipe out of whole herds speak volumes of  destruction and despair. Tax payers are funding this atrocity, under the guise  of “management”. Read this article: http://readersupportednews.org/pm-section/27-27/9442-tragedy-disguised-the-extinction-of-americas-last-wild-horses-and-burros Wild  horses are safe only on the range, where they enhance the eco-system. Their  evolution is here, and they positively contribute to soils, plants, animals and  people and help prevent wild fires. Government has too long targeted  them for elimination and wrongfully blamed them for damage caused by  cattle. The negative schemes must be exposed. Read Craig Downer’s compelling  book: “The Wild Horse Conspiracy”. It will blow your mind on the true story of  the West and how the Fed’s destroy this heritage in a cleverly deceptive agenda.  He has defended wild horses over 40 years against the merciless attacks of BLM  and special interests. It’s time people find out the truth.
Please sign this petition, with all that failed in years against this  massive eviction, we must maintain our voice for these defenseless icons.
Thank you. Monika Courtney
