Join Co-hosts Gabriella Castillo and Christianna Capra for a discussion on the BLM Wild Horse Roundups and Horse Slaughter Legislation. Our guests this month are Simone Netherlands (www.respect4horses.com) who is a advocate for horses and their well-being. Also joining us is Rob Pliskin, an EAGALA practitioner and a BLM Volunteer "horse gentler" who can clearly see that the BLM is not playing fair when it comes to the massive increase in Wild Horse Roundups this past year. Well over 100,000 of our American Horses (wild and domestic) are currently exported to Canada and Mexico to be slaughtered for their meat and sold as a delicacy overseas. In 2010 the European Union (EU) is instating new rules relating to the food safety of horse meat for human consumption. They have established that horse meat contains unhealthy amounts of carcinogenic drugs that horses receive very commonly (such as the painkiller bute). People don’t have horse problems. Oh no. Horses have people problems. And our wild horses have people problems too, with the govt that is supposed to protect them. We can ask important data based questions about this. Like, why did the BLM take away over 19 million acres of wild horse areas and let even more cows and sheep back on some of them, but no horses? Or, why did our BLM management team have to kill 79 wild horses and cause 39 mares to abort their foals in the recent Calico Complex roundup, and pay a contractor over 697 thousand dollars of YOUR money to help them do it? JOIN US, Sunday, May 16th to find out more - and how you can be a voice to stop the insanity!
