Draft Report of Triple B Roundup released

Wild Horse Education has published the draft report on operations at the Triple B roundup in Nevada.

The report contains photographs and video of the roundup during foaling season that has already taken the lives of 9 horses. The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) “gather report” claims these foal deaths have been due to abnormalities in the young horses. Documentation obtained shows otherwise.

“The development of the foals I have seen are all within normal range,” says Laura Leigh, founder/President of Wild Horse Education and VP of Wild Horse Freedom Federation “Joint development in young foals has a broad range of normal. None of the foals I was actually able to observe showed any fatal abnormality other than inflammation and damage from a run that never should have been allowed to happen.”

Other issues with this roundup include over driving, poor loading, lack of appropriate amounts of water and lack of public assessment opportunity.

    Thank you. This was very good and it needs to be spread far and wide and for people to use with informing reps and others about the actual conditions and what has become The New Normal!! of 2011 Stampedes! Such arrogance!

    Thank you. Will print out and send out. Also, are you on Facebook? Just confirming. I know there were a few “laura leigh” groups for a while there.

    • Laura Leigh says:

      Yeah… I went kicking and screaming all the way.
      But this way folks know I am there… and now hopefully the confusion will end.
      But I may not be able to respond very fast… so folks will need to be patient with me.
      ugh.

        Some people were saying you weren’t there, so I wasn’t sure. Good to have you post there once in a while too. It is a time eater, but good place for updates and uploading photos, notes and tell us what to do!!

    Laura, Your time is best spent as it has been, and we must take the time to follow through. It is so hard to be positive in Texas. Our STATE voted to outlaw horse slaughter for human consumption… A very smart legislative move (among a group not known for such) in a state that loves horses. But we can only get a few reps and no senators to sign on to legislation supporting horses. Most are just too damn greedy, and take money that the other side doles out.
    i will keep trying, and thanking those legislators from other states that do STAND UP.
