Triple B_ horse hit with skids

Do you think the horse was being pushed back so we couldn’t see it roped? There is no reason for the chopper to move this exhausted horse.

  2. Barbara Warner says:

    Thanks, Laura. They are the most heartless bunch of &^%#@#%&^ I have ever seen. May they rot in hell.

  3. Chris L. says:

    Please know that there are many of us who are thankful for your being there to document these tragic round ups. Also, please know that I appreciate how emotionally difficult it is to document these crimes. Thanks for all you do!

    Dear Laura, they are now sadistic. How much longer must we be only the Witnesses.?

  5. Mar Wargo says:

    This is grounds to to report this to FAA and OSHA. I am getting some links and phone numbers together and will give them out. If there is anyone one else please add it to this list and bring it here so I can send it out.

    This is animal cruelty and it is also very dangerous to do this sort of stupid stunt. This man needs to be repeatedly reported so we can get him grounded. please help Ground Josh Helyer! mar

      OSHA will be a waste of time.

      • Mar Wargo says:

        Telling the powers that be is the point. WE get no where with everyone… why not add some more?? I think they need to hear it enough times… but they are supposed to respond. This puts heat on them if they do not and it gets pointed out they are not. I know their budget is cut and they may be on the way out… If there are others to contact… please add them.
        OHSA, FAA HSUS, ASPCA and I am sure there are more.

    They are just going to keep ramping up the captures, no matter the casualties, because they know that they will be stopped hopefully sooner or rather than later. Same damn thing happened back in the late ’60’s when the Mustangers and other low life scumbags knew that at some point, a protection act of some kind would be adopted and they would be exposed for the souless vermin that these guys (and gals too) are. Human nature will never change, but lucky for the wild horses that there are good people out there who once they see videos like these that Laura Leigh so selflessly takes and also narrates, their rose colored glasses come off and they are as out-raged as the rest of us are who have witnessed these atrocities for years and years. We can only pray for the horses that we can stop these bast**ds soon and expose the BLM for being the major players in this racket. Whether in the here and now, or being judged in the after life, these people will pay for their bad deeds one way or another.

    Thanks Laura, How many wranglers do you need to bring in a wild horse? Two wrangler and a helicopter and one worn out wild horse. That poor wild horse looks so exhausted there is absolutely no reason for Sun J to terrorize and batter/assault that W. H. that way, what is wrong with them? WRONG!!!

  8. rolene says:

    I’d love to see there own family out there being chased, and there nothing they could do to help them. I’d love to meet the Men that do this. NO.1 THERE NOT MEN. I think they are heartless. Come on leave the wild horse alone. God is so right, Man is THE DESTROYER. Yes, this is so up setting.

  9. rolene says:

    Also the people that can do this to animals can also be cruel to the human race. You see they get there jollies doing this to animals, becuse it feeds there mean streak. And that so true. oh and they think there TUFF.

  10. Cat Kindsfather says:

    He definitely needs to be grounded. Overdriving an animal & in the wrong direction, thats torture. Contact bump with the skids, so wrong! When at the last Broken Arrow tour, I spoke with Heather Emmons abput just this sort of inhumane activity. She clearly said they had talks with their pilots about not getting so close to the animals. Also it was stated that new humane rules were in place, either on BLM, or BLM over the contractors. He needs to get back into his training pants!

  11. arlene says:

    I think we all should be about done , spinning our wheels, these people do not listen to reason, they are hell bent, and believe nothing can stop them,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,The time for talking reason is over now it is time for action……………………..

  12. WHat action can be taken??? If WE try to gather in force at one of the gather sites, they will just bring out those to arrest or worse, injure those of us who are merely there to protest. Washington has PROVEN that THEY don’t give a rats patootie, and WHAT Congressman or woman has the actual balls to get up in front of their peers there in Washington and stand up FOR SHUTTING DOWN THE BLM Roundups???? Of course, right now, THAT CAN’T happen, even if one were to want to, because they are all in HAWAII ON VACATION!!!!!
    With so many on the internet being angered by all of this, I have yet to see anyone be able to come up with a way to circumvent the bullcrap laws that Washington has passed, find a FREE judge ( so far all the ones have been bought off by the BLM, or WHY HAVEN’T THEY BEEN CITED FOR IGNORING COURT ORDERS COUNTLESS TIMES???) We have ALL of these wonderful folks out here doing these photo shoots, videoing the horrors and yet NOBODY IS LISTENING to what is RIGHT IN FRONT OF THEIR EYES!!! I can’t come up with any LEGAL ways right now, but I am seriously considering the other options…..

  13. Louie Cocroft says:

    When we report abuses, such as this, it puts the ball in “their court”. Just make certain that you have proof at your end…fax or registered letter, etc. In the event of a Congressional investigation, there will be a paper trail.

  14. arlene says:

    We need to know exactly what we need to do …………………..

  15. So far all I have seen by so many folks, BLM is being allowed to continue on with their abusive tactics and being given absolutely NO punishment of any kind for it!! Since all of the judicial system members are bought off by the BLM, who is there left to turn to that MIGHT listen and MIGHT be able to do something about this?? Court orders have been ignored with no repercussions to the BLM yet if any of US did that we would be in jail with NO SIGN of release. Our protest letters fall on deaf ears and for all who have made countless trips to Washington D.C. WHAT WAS ACCOMPLISHED??? Not a damn thing!!! These butcher gathers are STILL GOING ON, AND WILL UNTIL THE LAST HORSE AND BURRO IS GONE!!!! THEN EVERYONE will come out of the woodwork and offer to “help”…AFTER the fact!!!! SERIOUSLY, WHO is there in this corrupt government that will actually LISTEN AND DO SOMETHING??? They all want their goodies and perks and nobody wants to rock the boat…..MY answers border on direct confrontation with the gather butchers and physically shut them down by overwhelming numbers and force. Taking down of the pens and not letting them go on and if need be, disabling their choppers so they can’t abuse any more horses. I am open to any better options……….anyone????

  16. arlene says:

    Debbie, I agree there is no other way to stop them, isnt it a dirty shame , all that wont listen in Government, we must stop them, we cannot except what they are doing to the Mustangs, we need to stop them, somehow !!!! We need ideas here and now………….

  17. I know Arlene…which is why I gave MY way of stopping them, which is, I admit more along the lines of the protests back in the ’70’s, of which I did not partake, but was a viewer….and in some ways as bad as some of them were, they DID get their points across more times than not….. So, other than that, I have no ideas on how to stop this runaway train …………. I’m open for suggestions that are better than mine. ANYONE????

      I share the same “logic” as you do. All the efforts via cyber communications doesn’t spur effective action. Judges may rule against the BLM only to change their rulings a few weeks later, possibly via threat or pay-off. Salazar ignores all communications from senators or other representatives. We now know without a doubt that the govt will not respond to the people, The BLM runs the show for their OWN benefit and their cronies who pay them well. We are AWAKE to this fact. Mobilization of huge numbers of people must take place to save our beloved horses and burros. Something is going to break, is it US or THEM. This is all tied together with what is going on (for profit) drilling, fracking and destruction of public land. Some ideas may have to be shared privately.

      • Laura Leigh says:

        Actually accurate documentation is getting into hands that are beginning to pay attention. Unfortunately it is slow going.
        Triple B never had a Judge “change” his mind. He asked some questions looking for what he needed.
        There is a lot of misconception about some of the litigation.
        You all (I know in your spare time) need to read what advocates file and BLM’s responses. Then the rulings.
        That’s how we create cases they try to avoid…
        The FA case that the NCFP and NPPA have joined has BLM trying very hard to push off until next year.
        The gelding case was just dropped…. BLM knew it could create bad case law so they withdrew.
        Litigation is a powerful tool that we have not mastered yet.
        I can tell you I have spoken to more media in the last few days than ever… but they are actually starting to ask “better questions.”
        The gal today knew Nevada history, politics, FLPMA, WH&B Act… she has been a political journalist for venues like CNN, Las Vegas Review and others.
        She is talking to everyone… not just me… but I can tell you the level of discussion was way above any “quick answer,” “repeat the rhetoric” piece.
        WE are educating the public and they are interested.
        WE need greater numbers.
        and WE have to help them know what to do.

          This is good news. It is a progression and if we can just keep you in the field revealing all you can this feeds the total picture and gives the press more to bite on. Thanks for your tolerance of tough working conditions!

        • Karen says:

          Good work Laura. I think you are so right that litigation is necessary–hard to know how to minimize the damage in the meantime though. Just keep writing and calling to keep pressure on I guess?

  18. arlene says:

    Yes ideas can be shared but not here…………………….Here would be giving them a heads up……………………….They have unshared secrets , so do we

  19. Debbie says:

    Laura, were you able to get a tail number from that chopper on the 12th? Please want to report to FAA

  20. Laura Leigh says:

    This is being taken care of.
    There will be an announcement by the weekend.
    PLEASE trust me this time.

  21. arlene says:

    Laura trust in you is a given, we will wait to see the announcement this weekend !!!!!!!!!!! Hoping it will be a awesome announcement !!!!
