Horses are wild – but not free
Joan Guilfoyle, BLM Wild Horse and Burro Division Chief – the same woman whose internal Bureau of Land Management discussed “drastic changes” needed – is interviewed by NBC News. While this video is a few months old… the lies by Guilfoyle are the same ones repeated over and over again like some kind of mantra “No we do not kill horses”. James Stephenson, a BLM advisory member, is shown in the video at a BLM advisory meeting endorsing horse slaughter. Then in the next scene Guilfoyle says this would never be considered that all captured wild horses are adopted out to good homes. It is well known that Tom Davis, a horse buyer, has made good money off reselling BLM wild horses – he has said so himself …somehow the majority of these previously free horses wind up on ranches close to the Mexican border then disappear. Still the Bureau of Land Management denies any culpability to a man they adopted horses to over and over again.
This brings us all back to that internal memo written by Ms. Guilfoyle in which she strongly suggests sterilization of wild horses and euthanizing any horses deemed “near death” by government agents. In the video, Ms. Guilfoyle can somehow maintain a straight face while telling the American public that “there will always be wild horses”. Never does she discuss viable population numbers. Its all feel good catch phrases. The true agenda – keeping cheap land for use by private cattle ranches – seems to be the true goal of our government’s Bureau of Land Management.
Watch the video for yourself – horses are shown clearly injured and abused. All the while Ms. Guilfoyle tells us how much she loves them. ~ HfH
