Our guest tonight is Carol Walker, Dir. of Field Documentation for Wild Horse Freedom Federation. Carol spent 3 weeks in Sept and Oct of 2017 observing the roundup and removal of 1968 wild horses from Great Divide Basin, Adobe Town and Salt Wells Creek, three of the largest remaining Herd Management Areas in Wyoming and the country.
The BLM sent the majority of these wild horses to be held on private property at the BLM's Axtell (Utah) and Bruneau (Idaho) off range corrals, where the public is not allowed to see them. It's also harder to get older horses adopted, and if they aren't adopted, they'll likely be sold and end up going to slaughter. The BLM is planning to offer many wild horses on internet adoptions, but this is a quick way to most of them to get 3 strikes and be sold to slaughter. Carol will tell you about the BLM's cold-hearted refusal of the help offered to get these wild horses adopted and saved from slaughter.
