BLM Begins Wild Horse Water Bait Trap Gather near Gerlach on Thursday, June 1

WINNEMUCCA, Nev. – The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Winnemucca District (WD) will begin an emergency wild horse gather on Thursday, June 1 north of Gerlach, Nevada. Due to reported safety concerns of horses crossing the highway and creating near misses with vehicles, the WD will be gathering approximately 15 horses from the area near the highway.

The BLM plans to use a water trap, consisting of corral panels stocked with water; no helicopters will be used. Because wild horses are reluctant to approach the trap site when there is too much activity, only essential gather operation personnel will be allowed at the gather site during operations.

All the horses identified for removal will be transported to the Palomino Valley Wild Horse and Burro Adoption Center north of Reno, NV where they will be prepared for the BLM adoption program. Horses not adopted will be placed in off-range pastures where they can retain their free-roaming nature. The BLM does not sell or send any horses to slaughter. For information on how to adopt a wild horse, visit http://on.doi.gov/1u25hEH.

For more information, please contact Jenny Lesieutre, Wild Horse and Burro Public Affairs Specialist for the Nevada State Office at (775) 861-6594 or jlesieut@blm.gov.

Livestock auction in New Holland where meat men prey on horses is banning photos and videos

Tuesday's Horse

MARCH AGAINST HORSE SLAUGHTER — News of the Horse reports that the livestock auction in New Holland, Pennsylvania, is banning photos and videos.

New Holland auction is notorious among horse lovers chiefly because it is one of the largest sales rings where horses are dumped in some of the most deplorable circumstances imaginable and preyed on by meat man acting on behalf of horse slaughter plants in Canada and Mexico.

Anyone with even the slightest knowledge of horse slaughter has heard of New Holland auction.

It is where thousands of horses each year enter what has commonly become referred to as the “slaughter pipeline”.

Ford Turner, reporting for McClatchy-Tribune Informational Services, writes:

Every Monday, 200 or more thoroughbreds, Amish-owned work animals, Tennessee walkers, tiny “miniatures” and other varieties of horses pass between tiered plank seats full of auction spectators. The roughly 1,500 consignors, or sellers, who bring animals to the auction every week…

Canadian Horse Slaughter Regulations Changing – News of the Horse

Horse Slaughter Feedlot 

Canadian Horse Slaughter Regulations Changing

Canada – Effective March 31st, major changes are taking place for Canada’s horse slaughter industry, which could cripple the export of horses from the United States. The changes are being forced upon Canada by the European Union, the largest purchaser of horse meat.

Starting March 31, all horses imported into Canada must remain at a feedlot for 6 months before slaughter. 60% or more of the horses slaughtered in Canada are brought in from the United States, and this rule will increase the cost of importing horses from the US beyond profitability. Canada exported over $36 million worth of horse meat to the EU in 2016, but with the new rules, the future of horse slaughter in Canada is unknown.
Horse welfare activists are worried that the paperwork will simply be forged for horses that are slaughtered in Canada. The industry has a long history of skirting the law, and with paperwork forgery so prevalent in all areas of the horse slaughter pipeline, it would come as surprise to no one if horses continued to be slaughtered within days of leaving the United States.

Pads and Chains Outlawed

Thank you to everyone who signed the petitions…

January 13, 2017

Washington – The USDA announced today that new rules prohibiting the use of padded shoes, chains, action devices, and other methods of soring horses have become law. The rule states, in part “Amend the regulations to prohibit use of pads, substances, and action devices on horses at horse shows, exhibitions, sales, and auctions…” Horse owners have 30 days to comply after publication of the final rule to cease using all action devices, except certain boots, at shows, sales or auctions. Pads and wedges are outlawed starting Jan 1, 2018.

The Office of Management and Budget finalized their review of the proposed changes to the 1970 Horse Protection Act on January the 10th.
As previously reported, those who show and participate in Walking Horse shows stated “The USDA proposed rules will severely negatively impact every aspect of the horse community,” a worker at the Bedford Tack booth told News of the Horse. When asked if padded shoes and chains are necessary for the Walking Horse show, he replied “No comment.” Celebration Show Staff refused to comment on the proposed USDA rules, other than to say they had never heard of them.

While Animal welfare activists are celebrating the rule changes, no doubt those in the Walking Horse industry are preparing lawsuits to file against the rule changes.

Russian President Works to Protect Wild Horses


Vladimer Putin and wild Przewalski horses.

October 4, 2016

Russia’s president, Vladimir Putin, opened the gate and let the first group of wild horses loose into a preserve set up to save one of the last species of wild horses on earth. There are only roughly 2,000 Przewalski horses left, and Russia is committed to keeping the breed alive in the wild. The Przewalski horses once roamed the Eurasian steppes, through Russia, China, Mongolia, and Kazakhstan, but their habitat was taken over by cattle ranchers. When the horses could no longer roam the steppes, they perished in the wild. The ecology of the steppe suffered too. “In steppe ecosystems these animals contribute to their recovery,” said Olga Pereladova, the head of the World Wildlife Fund’s Central Asian program. “If horses are not grazing in the steppe it deteriorates because vegetation is not trampled; overabundance of grass can cause fires.”

The reserve serves as a breeding facility for Przewalski horses, and allows captive horses the opportunity to acclimate before being turned loose on the expansive steppes.

Scientists are hopeful that sufficient Przewalski remain to secure the future of the breed. China and Mongolia have reintroduced the Przewalski horses back into the wild as well.

Jul 16, 2016 — When Rep. Cynthia Lummis (Wyoming), suggested “Lovely Euthanasia” in the House subcommittee on wild horses and burros, did she reveal their plans?

As long as helicopters can be used to “manage” wild horses in Nevada, the BLM would have the right to attack our beloved wild horses and burros from the air and slaughter them with gunfire.

Go to the Nevada BLM meeting on motorized vehicles if you can. The hearing will be held on Thursday, July 28, at 6 p.m. at the Bureau of Land Management Battle Mountain Office, 50 Bastian Road, Battle Mountain, NV 89820.

If you cannot attend then send in your comments and copy your senators and representative on your email or handwritten letters. Read more here: http://protectmustangs.org/?p=9238
