The “photos”

I saw the News 4 report where BLM says the pics I took were the same day as the video of the mare.

I wasn’t there the day that particular mare went down. The only day I have not been on that range. The “photos” referenced were taken on the another day. They were taken from an area that no observation of the pilot could be seen by the “known” observers. I was on the opposite side of the hill.

It is not “telephoto” illusion or any such crap. My vantage was much lower (not higher). My vantage would not make the chopper look closer to the horse. Look at the wash from the chopper blades… there is snow on the ground. That tells you where that pilot was and how close…. this is NOT rocket science.

1/31/2011

Todays note:

Pilot (from the limited view I had) flew in a more appropriate manner except when the last group broke from the trap as the wranglers on the ground were standing upright and moving during approach. He then resumed the “force” the horse methodology. I hear over the radio a voice I believe was Ben Noyes the BLM Wild Horse and Burro specialist call it… to let the horses go.

Dash for freedom

Rest of the family... free tonight

Only 9 horses were taken from the “overpopulated” range today.

I wonder if a member of the public were not present would this have been the case?

Need to get up at 4….

    Whatever you are referring to I am not sure. There are people paying attention to the horses because of your work. BLM is defensive and dangerous. Take care. mar

    you know the blm acts as if the Mustangs were “Escaped convicts” and they must round up every mustang “for the good of the nation: this reeks of WWII atrocities ! but the worst part of the whole scheme is:

    THE BLM THEMSELVES BREED THE EXCESS ONES ROUNDED UP

    THE BLM BREEDS EXCESS MUSTANGS TO ROUND UP LATER BY

    ADDING A RATIO OF “6 STALLIONS TO EVERY WILD MARE…

    SO BY ADDING “6 STALLIONS TO EVERY WILD MARE IN THE HMA’S (THE BLM DOES THIS AFTER EVERY ROUNDUP example

    THE BLM WILL LITERALLY PLACE “60 UNFIXED Stallions with 40 wild mares AFTER THEY ROUND THEM UP

    THE BLM CHOOSES TEH “BEST STALLIONS AND WILD MARES

    PUT THOSE BACK ON THE RANGE TO BREED EXCESS ONES!

    FOR EXAMPLE THE BLM PUT 300 UNFIXED STALLIONS TO A HERD OF WILD MARES THIS SUMMER…

    SO THIS IS HOW THE HERDS DOUBLE EVERY FOUR YEARS

    THE BLM INTENTIONALLY BREEDS EXCESS MUSTANGS

    then the BLM “howls in the middle of the night like wolves

    where did these hundreds of excess mustang come from ?

    answer YOU THE BLM BRED THEM YOU STUPID LYING FOOLS!

    conclusion: 300 stallions plus 300 mares = 300 foal a yr.

    300 foals X 4 years = 1,200 EXCESS MUSTANGS…a scheme!

    (ps this does not include the foals who themselves breed!@

    and its not their fault: the BLM BREEDS EXCESS MUSTANGS

    TRUST ME ON THIS ! I spent 6 months researching this! AW

    (this is why the BLM calls the mustang foals “a foal CROP !

    a crop ! who ever heard of calling living animals “a crop !

    the crock of crap blm that’s who; the foal + mare abusers

    “the shooters of elderly blind stallions and old sick mares!

    THE BLM RUNS FOALS TO EXAUSTION THEM SHOOTS THEM!

  6. Nell Walton says:

    Well – the BLM is not interested in facts, so Gorey’s inaccurate statement does not surprise me.

  7. Nell Walton says:

    And at the end of the month I’m donating all royalties from my book to grassroots horse……and probably more from me personally. Keep up the good work Laura – what you are doing is extremely critical to enacting a change.

  8. arlene orlando says:

    Hello Laura , just wanted to say , You are one of the best !!!!!

  9. Barbara Warner says:

    God bless you and the wild horses, Laura. I recently sent GrassRoots another donation. Wish it could have been more. Will try to send more soon.
    Many thanks for all you are doing. Take care.

  10. Anna says:

    ps excuse me…i did not mean to “blow my top…thanks; Anne

  11. Barbara Warner says:

    Anna, you do not have to excuse yourselves to us. We understand. Also I’m glad you told about all the recent deaths( murders) as I didn’t have that sad information. Congress needs to have an investigation of the BLM befote our wild horses are extinct.

  12. Odakota Roberts says:

    Just wanted to let you know I am behind you 100%. keep up the good work and no more horses will have to suffer. N

    Dear Laura Please be extremely careful, You are out there with this type of vermin…………………………………

  16. elissa kline says:

    Thank you for being brave enough to witness these round ups. I have only been to one, Challis Idaho 2009. I photographed that herd for 6 years and I’ll never forget the horror of watching family bands you know run into the trap. I have many shots of the helicopter on top of one horse – for 10 minutes after pushing them miles up and over mountains on a 100 degree day. Until you see it for yourself, it is hard to imagine… And you do it over and over. Thank you for your work, your photos, your words and your big heart.
