    I don’t know how you got that picture, Laura, but WAY TO GO! Thank you!

    The people responsible for doing this are hurting themselves so bad. The more they harass these beautiful, brave horses the more they harass some part of themselves.
    One day, when they are old, they will look back and cry for the horses that are gone. Just a story to tell their grandchildren. But when the grandchildren ask them ‘where can I see these darn horses that you drove off the range?’ THe answer will come back, ‘nowhere, there are none left’. And then suddenly, for no reason, they will cry.

    There must be some sort of visual distortion to your camera’s lens as how much video footage do we have of BLM personnel telling us that the Cattoors never “stampede” the horses and it is such a “humane” process?!?!

    Liars, cheats and thieves, every last one of them.

    This is the BLM “humanely gathering” the wild horses by “slowly” walking them into the chutes?

    • Linda says:

      There certainly isn’t any “slowly” walking when the helicopters chase the mustangs for miles BEFORE they get near the traps. The panicked Twin Peaks herd forced over the brow of the hill and down that steep embankment sure weren’t moving “slowly”.

      And I haven’t seen any mustangs “slowly” walking into the chutes in the independent observer videos except those that have fallen back or totally out of the herd – mares trying in vain to stay with their exhausted foals and other horses that are totally spent. Even then the helicopters continue to harrass the stragglers lest they stop and deprive the BLM of their target numbers and contractors of their profits.

      It must frutrate the pilots when entire groups break out before reaching the jute, causing them to fly back and apply even more pressure. Or maybe they enjoy the thrill of the chase – except when they’re unsuccessful.

      In most videos the mustangs gallop or lope in. The slowest gait I’ve seen is a fast trot. That’s why the horses “pile up” in the traps, resulting in chaos. The Judas horse doesn’t “slowly walk”, but is sent out at pretty fast pace, and the mustangs follow and even increase their speed trying to catch up with their new “leader”.

      So no more of that “slowly” walking crap. I just don’t buy it!

    What a shot, Laura! You can even see how he’s blowing. Definitely NOT walking. I’ve NEVER-on all the roundup videos I’ve watched-have I seen any horse walking, only once were a couple trotting.

    Psychopaths ~ psychopath (plural psychopaths)

    1. A person with a personality disorder indicated by a pattern of lying, cunning, manipulating, glibness, exploiting, heedlessness, arrogance, delusions of grandeur, sexual promiscuity, low self-control, disregard for morality, lack of acceptance of responsibility, callousness, and lack of empathy and remorse. Such an individual may be especially prone to violent and criminal offenses.

    I’ll be looking forward to the Horseback article.

  7. I hope we see this fellow again and he is sound. I wonder how they are all doing and if any are hurt bad. Just so they survive this. For what is done to them is not worth the removal experience. Ever. It needn’t be this way. They need not be taken but for the arrogance of BLM and their inability to work with the public. Instead, how they enrage us with this violence and their refusal to stop and change. This is criminal. mar

    This picture worth a 100,000 words! Unfortunatrly those responsible for this and those following their orders have no sense of remorse. Very scary people!
    Thank you and all the wild horse observors and advocates for attempting to counter balance their lack of humaness.
