The BLM should be held accountable to same standard of the law just like any person or company or government agency. This is the proof when you fight for the truth and don't give up ... "Today, for the second time this week, the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals has handed wild horses a major legal victory! The court ruled that the BLM broke two federal laws when it rounded up 1,262 wild horses from the Wyoming Checkerboard in 2014.
This is huge! It means that the BLM's proposed 2016 Checkerboard roundup is also illegal! The BLM just notified the court that it was pulling the plug on this latest roundup of 500 wild horses, which was scheduled to start on October 18! Not only that, the decision permanently prevents BLM from treating the public lands as private and allowing ranchers to dictate whether or not wild horses will be allowed to live on our public lands.
This is our third major victory for wild horses in just over a month! On Monday, the Tenth Circuit ruled that BLM is not required to remove horses from public lands just because the population exceeds arbitrarily-established population limits. And on September 9, the BLM dropped plans to conduct dangerous surgical sterilization experiments on wild horses in Oregon, citing the lawsuit filed by AWHPC and The Cloud Foundation as the reason for its decision." Source: American Wild Horse Preservation God Bless Ginger Kathrens and The Cloud Foundation and all those who went after the bureaucratic lawlessness and the BLM National Wild Horse And Burro Advisory Board. This is a huge victory to enforce the federal law that is set into place to protect these federally protected wild horses and burros. They are held accountable. Our tax dollars are meant for the people who hold office to uphold the law. Our responsibility is to make sure all government agencies/personnel perform the job with integrity and respect for the law. Hold people accountable!!
