APPARENT AGENDA: MASS EXTERMINATION OF AMERICA’S WILD HORSES  AND BURROS

THE TOTAL ANHILIATION OF A HERITAGE SPECIES

METHOD OF OPERATION:

 BRUTAL MOTORIZED MASS ROUND UPS, CREATING ABSOLUTE PANIC WITHIN THE HERDS OF AMERICA’S WILD HORSES, RESULTING IN THE CRIPPLING INJURIES TO MARES, FOALS, AND THE COURAGEOUS STALLIONS DETERMINED TO PROTECT THEIR HERDS.

THE FOLLOWING VIDEOS ARE DISTURBING TO SAY THE LEAST BYT THEY REVEAL THE REAL TRUTH!!

It shows a stallion breaking his leg and it shows him running..heart wrenching. A foal also falls and a horse falls in the trap and gets trampled..

The BLM began the roundup of 200 wild horses in the Antelope and Antelope Valley Herd Management Areas (HMAs) on Oct. 2, 2012. Two horses died as a result of the roundup on Day 1.

Speech for Wild Horse Summit, Las Vegas, NV, Oct. 12, 2008, organized by ISPMB

http://rtfitch.wordpress.com/2011/01/30/renowned-wild-horse-expert-disputes-blms-flawed-math/

In 2008 Mr. Craig C. Downer a renowned Wild Horse Expert delivered his speech: https://giftofloki.wordpress.com/2011/09/24/forever-wild-and-free-mr-craig-downers-full-unedited-speech-revealing-the-truth-about-the-blm-roundups-and-plight-of-u-s-wildhorses/

Excerpt:

“Though the horse family is endangered world wide, wild horses and burros on public land remain on the very bottom of the totem pole of priorities of both the Bureau of Land Management & U.S. Forest Service.  These are the two agencies charged by law with protecting& managing them.  These two “national heritage species,” have rights to live free that are covered by the unanimously passed Public Law 92-195 and that are supported by many millions of ordinary U.S. citizens as well as people worldwide.  For these and other sundry reasons, the extent of livestock grazing and the number of permittees involved both in the original Herd Areas and in reduced Herd Management Areas should be clearly spelled out to the public – but this is not currently the case!”

Here is a link to Craig's proposal. It is posted   on the Wild Horse 
and Burro page on below website above the previous   version he 
released in 2010.

FACTS:

“The exclusion of wild horse and burro areas seems to be an intentional cover-up for the grossly unfair treatment that the wild horses and burros are receiving. “

Hundreds of thousands are fighting to Save America’s Wild Horses, unknown to each other, their voices are united for one GOAL, that being to end the brutal BLM roundups and the senseless annihiliation of wild horses and burros period.

“It is imperative to know the fabricated myths of range deterioration, starvation and the claim by some that wild horses are “feral” are fairy tales produced by special interests. Mustangs are native to North America, enough evidence is present.” See this report on BLM secrecy and tactics from George Knapp:

FACTS:  CANADA BLOODIES HER HANDS ENABLING BLM ROUND UPS TO CONTINUE!!!!

While the US closed their own equine slaughter houses years ago,  Canada continues to enable the massive and brutal round ups of American Wild Horses, by importing these terrified and injured animals into Canada.  After days of unending transport, without food, water and rest these exhausted magnificent horses find themselves in Canada’s Quebec and Alberta slaughterhouses.

Why?  So that Canada can export horse meat to countries outside of North America and derive yet more income for government coffers.

See Stats Canada chart showing number of American horses imported into this country for slaughter, the US banned this yrs ago and shut down their own slaughterhouses

MP introduces bill to ban horse meat for human consumption

FACTS:  Tainted Horse meat Unfit for Human Consumption

Repost: from Canadian Horse Defence Coalition’s Blog

Politically Incorrect – Alberta politicians and horse slaughterby canadianhorsedefencecoalition

Politically incorrect. 

http://canadianhorsedefencecoalition.wordpress.com/2012/04/23/politically-incorrect-alberta-politicians-and-horse-slaughter/

Excerpt:

“The law states that every horse that goes to slaughter MUST be accompanied with their original papers, to show their medical history & if they had been given drugs that are banned by the FDA & CFIA in animals intended for human consumption, yet this is impossible & rarely the case since so many horses have gone through multiple owners, are bought at auction & have even been stolen.”

“The most common drug that is given to horses, is Bute(Phenylbutazone) which is an analgesic (relieves pain) and anti-inflammatory medication, that is as common in horses, as aspirin is to people. The warning label reads; Health risks. Humans should not inhale or ingest Bute. Wash hands immediately after administering Bute. In humans, bone marrow, renal, cardiovascular and gastrointestinal side effects are associated with use of Phenylbutazone.”
“Bute is a drug that is not only banned in animals intended for human consumption, but a drug that never leaves the system once it had been administered. Tests may say that the carcass is free of Bute, but the tests is not done on the part of the carcass where Bute can be found (in the Kidneys). Therefore, no amount of guaranteeing a horse that has ever had Bute given to them, will ever make their meat safe to eat. Racehorses are also commonly sent to slaughter plants & we know they are given Bute, as is the case with any privately owned horse.”
“There has never been & never will be any way possible to ensure that horses going to slaughter, for the purpose of human consumption, are free of drugs such as Bute, yet no one in the Government seems to care. Why? Because horse slaughter is a great way to pad their wallets? That must be it, because there is not one benefit to horse slaughter, that isn’t monetary & that is only for those who benefit directly from the slaughter industry, which is only the people who are involved with horse slaughter (buyers, transporters, people in the plant, horse racing, PMU farms, Nurse mares, etc.) & the Government.
So I ask you, why is it not ok to allow consumers to eat tainted pork, beef, chicken, turkey or fish, but it is perfectly acceptable to allow consumers to eat tainted horse meat.”

“We need to force the Government to do the right thing, we must let them know that we will not allow our horses to be tortured, abused, maimed & killed in the most barbaric way, we will not tolerate them purposely poisoning people, just to make a buck. The time has come for them to get their heads out of their asses & smarten the hell up.

The Government needs to be held accountable for their irresponsible & selfish decisions & actions. The time for excuses, wool pulling, head in the sand & cover up’s are over. If they claim to not want to sell tainted beef, chicken, pork, etc, than they sure as hell shouldn’t be allowing tainted horse meat to be sold & exported”

If you have taken the time to read all of the above, the key words contained in the statement quoted are: “, yet no one in the Government seems to care. Why? Because horse slaughter is a great way to pad their wallets?”

“Horse slaughter is a great way to pad their wallets”

Bloggers Comment:

Horse slaughter is an excellent way to ensure that the cattle industry can also continue to move into grazing lands  that were designated as protected areas solely for Wild Horses and Burros,  without facing consequences.  Horse slaughter is also an excellent way for the continued destruction and exploitation  of natural habitat that was designated as protected areas solely for Wild Horses and Burros by large and profitable enterprises in the oil and mineral industries, which of course, you can rightly believe, make hefty political donations as well as filling government coffers with their tax dollars.

Canada has already become an International Disgrace for it’s continued Seal Hunt.  The EU, European Union, banned Canadian Seal Products yet Canada goes on it’s merry way doesn’t it? and spent hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars in its campaign to convince members of the EU to allow Canadian Seal Products into their countries and to find new customers outside the EU.

Canada continues to be an International Disgrace by enabling the massive BLM roundups for the slaughter of Wild Horses not only in the US but in Canada as well.

With Ontario’s Premier McGuinty’s closure of racetracks across Ontario, the estimated number of racehorses, 13,000 per CHDC, will likely be on the increase.  These horses, now deemed no longer profitable to their respective owners, injected with chemicals making them unfit for human consumption, will be brutally handled and slaughtered in Quebec plants that undercover investigations and videos have revealed to be houses of sheer suffering, pain and horror.

In addition the tainted meat produced from these horses will find its way to the dinner plates of unsuspecting families who will unknowingly  ingest chemicals which pose serious health risks to humans.

CONGRATULATIONS CANADA!!!

For your continued disregard!

For your continued enablement of the mass slaughter and extermination of a magnificent heritage species across the US and for the failure to protect the very few Wild Horses that still roam throughout Canada!

For your continued production and export of tainted horse meat products to the dinner plates of unsuspecting families!

Clearly obvious, now across Canada, the total disregard for population health safety can be seen, with the recent and unprecedented recall of  beef products produced in the XL Plant.  Contaminated with E.Coli this meat has proven to be deadly and the recall of the beef products has expanded in an alarming fashion.

While Agriculture Minister Rich has publically made the claim that we have more Meat and Plant Inspectors than ever before, his statement is ludicrous, given that P.M. Harper gutted the inspection process by firing so many inspectors across Canada.

Further, the failure to inspect and impose stricter regulations in the food processing plants and Factory Farms across Canada has resulted in the horrific and totally preventable deaths of thousands of Factor Farm animals in this country.  Once again the Canadian Government needs to be congratulated for inadequate and antiquated Federal Legislation, which protects an industry that continues to perpetuate the horrific treatment of these animals.

So, if anyone thinks that the Horse Slaughter Industry is being properly monitored and regulated here in Canada…THINK AGAIN!!!

HORRIFIC STATS ON FACTORY FARM ANIMALS BURNED ALIVE IN JUST FOUR DAYS IN CANADA

https://giftofloki.wordpress.com/2011/09/25/horrific-stats-on-factory-farm-animals-burned-alive-in-just-four-days-in-canada/

EXCERPT FROM THE ANIMAL DEFENSE LEAGUE OF CANADA NEWSLETTER  BULLETIN #178  FALL/WINTER 2011

“FACTORY-FARM BARN FIRES FILL OVER 23,000 ANIMALS IN FOUR DAYS” From Canadians for Ethical Treatment of Food Animals (CETFA), Vancouver, B.C., July 26, 2011

(Paraphrased):

‘Factory-barn fires are preventable – but they continue to occur because, in order to cut costs, they are highly automated with insufficient human maintenance and oversight.  This in spite of the fact that the toxic air from the waste of thousands of animals doesn’t only corrode the lungs of the confined animals – it also corrodes electrical wires and raises the likelihood of fire.  Furthermore, these animal death camps often lack either smoke sensors orsprinkler systems.  In this fire-trap situation, with many of the animals confined to metal gestation crates, concrete pens or battery cages, for animals to escape from the inferno is virtually impossible.”
