For too many years, the U.S. Bureau of Land Management has been terrorizing Wild Horses during their annual round ups for slaughter!!!
First off it is an outrageous travesty that this is even occurring within the U.S., secondly the inhumane methods used during these round ups are deplorable, disgusting and totally unacceptable!
What happens during the round up is bad enough, what happens after the round up is even worse!!!
Many courageous individuals have been and continue to fight for the rights, freedom and protection of these magnificent wild horses. Were it not for the horses of long ago, the United States of America would not have developed into the World Power it is today.
Horses are not only an important part of the American success story, allowing for the exploration and settlement across the vast U.S., these animals are a very important part of American Heritage and History.
Are these magnificent animals going to go the way of the American Buffalo?????
It is ironic that nothing has been learned from past mistakes. Buffalo were virtually wiped out in specific areas of the U.S. Wolves were virtually wiped out in certain areas as well.
So what did the U.S. do……they imported Buffalo and Wolves from Canada in order to re-introduce these animals……further irony lays in that now wolves are being unmercifully slaughtered once again, exemplified by former Governor Palin’s mass slaughter and aerial hunt of wolves in Alaska.
Sen. Landrieu states: “The last U.S. Slaughterhouses were closed in 2007, and there is virtually no demand for horse meat in this country. However, tens of thousands of horses are inhumanely transported across our borders where they are brutally slaughtered.”

Horse Slaughter – The Facts
The highly publicized and well documented Sugarcreek Auction & Leroy Baker case is a perfect example of the inhumane practices inflicted upon innocent wild horses who by no fault of their own have fallen victim to greed as well as to a Government that allows this to happen in the first place by failing to put an end to the BLM round ups!!!! And the exportation to cross border slaughterhouses!!!

It is time that these roundups are ended permanently!!!
Applause and support must be given to courageous individuals who continue to fight for these magnificent wild horses. People like Monika who is not afraid to speak against the horrendous brutality and cruelty these animals must endure.
Monika it is my privilege to be your friend!!
In a message dated 3/15/2011 10:13:03 P.M. Mountain Daylight Time,
To whom it may concern:
It is widely known, that the notorious Leroy Baker who owns Sugarcreek Auction, has grossly neglected and traumatized horses by committing cruelty against them.
Typically upon arrival, investigators find emaciated, injured, lame, sick, infected, blind, heavily pregnant and dead horses; horses subjected to extremely rough handling, hitting horses with full force across the face; extreme overcrowding, and horses being trampled to death – due to ignorant and cruel handling. Virtually without exception auction veterinarians refuse care.
This country is a modern nation that ought to reflect higher animal welfare standards. It does not take a genius to see the evidence against Baker is justified and he needs to be held accountable !!
How can any county or state here tolerate such heinous cruelty against defenseless animals ??
I urge you to take this matter very serious and make an end to this. Baker has gotten away too long.
Please stop the cruelty now.
It is in your hands to make a stand against unacceptable, un-American and archaic cruelty, and I urge you to do so now.
Thank you for your time.

Baker owes back fines of $162,800.00 to the USDA for abuse violations, and those are the fines we know about.
