This is an example of a wild horse going to slaughter. His BLM brand has been burned over to disguise it. (From Simone Netherlands - Respect 4 Horses)
Seeing this picture makes me feel like the BLM is cheating people to get the horses sold to slaughter so they can make money. The mustangs are supposed to be protected by their brand, so I don't understand how this is happening and I want to know who is burning off their brands so they can be sent to slaughter.
Here are two pictures of round-ups of wild mustangs. Does this look humane to you? I don't think it does. The first picture shows how the horse is falling while the helicopter is still chasing right behind them. In the second picture you can see the helicopter actually hitting the horse!!
Below is a post from R.T. Fitch's blog about how the BLM is about to attack Cloud's herd. There is some really good information for you including how to help and where to send appeals to help Cloud's herd.
PLEASE HELP TO MAKE THE ROUND-UPS STOP!! ~Declan
