Oklahoma City – The Cloud Foundation, Respect4Horses and Wild Horse  Freedom Federation will hold a special press conference, during the  Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) Advisory Board meeting, focused on  addressing the BLM’s mismanagement of America’s vanishing wild horses  and burros; the BLM Slaughtergate debacle; the European horse meat  scandal; and the status of Oklahoma bills for legalization of previously banned horse slaughter within their state.

When: Monday, March 4th, 2013 during these hours according to your time zone :

12:00 noon until 1:00pm CST

Who: Ginger Kathrens – Emmy award winner and Executive Director of the Cloud Foundation Lisa Friday – Board of Directors of the Cloud Foundation R.T. Fitch – Author, writer, blogger and President of Wild Horse Freedom Federation Simone Netherlands – Founder and President of Respect4Horses

The BLM’s Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Board is currently comprised  of many publicly avowed horse slaughter proponents, who at prior  meetings and during other public venues, have stated that the “proper”  way to manage wild horses is to send them to slaughter.  Although BLM  management denies any link to slaughter associations, a recent investigation by PPJ Investigative Reporter Debbie Coffey revealed a BLM long term holding facility contractor sold BLM wild horses directly to kill buyer Joe Simon, and another journalist revealed that Tom Davis purchased over 1,700 wild horses and burros from the BLM and no  longer knows where they are.
