ATTENTION Researchers! Wyoming grants aim to boost wild horse research

(reblog)  Wyoming agriculture officials are one step closer to granting researchers a portion of $250,000 allocated by Gov. Matt Mead for wild horse research in the state.

The department received more than 10 proposals for grant-funded research projects, with topics ranging from wild horses’ interaction with the range to population control methods.

“Our goal is to get information and specific data that is lacking or that BLM doesn’t have,” said Chris Wichmann, natural resource and policy manager at the Wyoming Department of Agriculture. “We want actual data on the ground that can help the state and BLM with the management of wild horses.”

Money will be divided into three categories for grant approval:

•Wild horse populations and statistical methods
•Wildlife and rangeland conditions
Development of a wild horse scientific summit.
Wyoming agriculture industry leaders say the data could help steer the wild horse conversation away from emotion and toward science.

“We need to bring the discussion back to management of the resource on public and private lands as opposed to horses versus cows,” said Jim Magagna, executive director of  Wyoming Stock Growers Association. “Some solid data with regard to forage consumption and related issues could be helpful in doing that.”

Ken Hamilton, executive director of Wyoming Farm Bureau Federation, said that the money may not be enough to solve the issue but that it will provide data for a scientific start to finding solutions.

“With this issue, it is extremely important to try to work for a solution,” Hamilton said. “The current solutions we have are just stopgap measures.”

The agriculture department will work with a panel of four legislators, including agriculture committee chairmen Sen. Gerald Geis, R-Worland, and Rep. Robert McKim, R-Afton.

A decision is expected in late January and early February.

ATTENTION Researchers And. Advocates ! This $$ is destined for YoU! Rachel Reeves, Ginger Kathrens, the Cloud Foundation, Laura Leigh, WHE, RT Fitch and more….

Wild horse ((& Cat *Kindsfather)) advocates say the BLM jeopardized public process

Wild horse advocates say the BLM jeopardized public process.

…& this NewsCaster…seems to Be in *Agreement *, as well! 😀 {{“nearly public-Less” MEETING…was May 29}}
Excerpt:::::

CARSON CITY, NV (KRNV & Mynews4.com) – Wild horse roundups are a controversial topic in Nevada & across the country. But at a public meeting at Bureau of Land Management office in Carson City today, that was not the only issue.
BLM holds an annual public comment meeting at 1 of their district offices each spring. The topic at this meeting was the use of motorized vehicles & aircraft during wild horse & burro roundups. “I’m totally against that. I think it’s a horrific way to treat the horses,” said Carson City resident Rosette Moltz. Moltz showed up too late for the meeting & was not able to put her comments on the record.
• Wild horse advocates who were not able to make it – say they were not given proper notification of this public comment meeting.
“I have Google alerts and I didn’t see it. Nobody really knew about it,” said Cat Kindsfather. She was at the meeting representing Protect Mustangs, an advocacy group in California. The organization put out a letter in the past few days that read “Breaking News: Government transparency and public process jeopardized.”
Anne Novak is Exec. Director of Protect Mustangs. She says she only found out about the meeting a few days ago, & did not have time to make arrangements to attend. “The whole country should be given adequate notice to participate in person, as well as via email,” said Novak.
• BLM put out a release May 18th, that’s just 5 business days before the meeting. The meeting was also listed on their website. But Novak says that is not good enough. She believes BLM should give 30 days notice.….
• BLM Wild horse & burro Specialist John Axtell was in charge of the meeting. Axtell says BLM is not required to give 30 days notice & this is the 1st time they have received a complaint like this. “In the past we haven’t had much interest at this office. Often people who show up are all local,” said Axtell.
But wild horse advocates say that is not true. They brought statements from people from across the country to the meeting. “The issue is about motorized vehicles, helicopters & such, and that * applies to America’s wild horses which are all American people’s horses,said Kindsfather.
• 0nly 4 people spoke out at today’s meeting. BLM officials say due to the low turnout they will allow people to send in their comments until June 12, 2012.…

S*h*a*r*i*n*g S0me Comments::

♦ To whom it may concern:

Not only are the wild horses & burros victims of abuse at the hands of your agency, but, so are
we, the American people, who admire & love OUR wild horses & burros. We are anguished & tormented with the knowledge of your brutal methods. We should be able to rest easy in knowing that these animals, that are so beloved by the American peoplewe got an act of congress passed with unanimous consent in 1971, – are truly protected.
Instead, we continue to have to fight for their very existence on the open range. This was settled years ago~ ∞
but sneaky amendments unpopular with the American people have been snuck into bills without the oversight of the American people -&- weakened the intended 1971 protections.
These animals are beloved & cherished for a reason.
Without them our country would not be what it is today. Wars since then would have been lost, & our lives would not have been enriched. … Numerous abuses have been documented of helicopter stampedes, in which burros are pushed with skids -&- knocked to the ground … & elderly animals are run until dropping in complete exhaustion, only to be harassed some more.
Removing the ancient wisdom from these herds does great harm to them. The older equid are the reservoirs of knowledge. They know where to find water, & where to travel in the seasons for forage. The old stallions, jacks, mares, & Jennies are the ones who determine whether conditions are right for increasing their herd size … & they adhere strictly to nature’s program for propagation.
The irony is not lost on me, that:
if they were left completely alone-∞- nature would provide the balance. And, the land would thrive as a result. … Much work has been done by promoters of holistic range management proving that the “science” currently being used by the BLM, Forest Service, + Texas Parks & Wildlife Department does not work. The lands continue to desertify at an alarming rate, – yet the same practices [are] causing this rapid decline?!

Miss Abby – 6/6/2012 9:59 PM

It is an utter disgrace, what is going on in this “once mighty country” -the land of “Freedom”! The fact is that our very freedom is being jeopardized in front of our eyes, and the way the government is treating our Wild Horses, our “Symbols of Freedom, reflects how little regard the administration has for the concept of FREEDOM and for it’s people. What kind of message is this★ sending to the rest of the world?
This★ America is NOT “United” any more.… It is “Dividedby GREED for MONEY. It is a travesty, that our Government is siding with & representing corporate greed, rather then the People! The horses who have been the most valiant in helping “humanity” are sacraficed once again..…this time it is in the name of GREED!
We the People, are speaking; NO HELICOPTER OR MOTORIZED, OR ANY OTHER KIND OF ROUND UPS! Allow the horses & other wild animals exist in PEACE.
It is ludicrous, what the BLM is saying, that a wild animal will just “walk peacefully” when a huge noisy machine decends upon them.… Horses are pray animals, & they will run to avoid danger. Everything the BLM is doing, is against veterinary advice; running heavily pregnant mares & 1-2 month old foals for even 1 mile will hurt them……yet the BLM “only” runs them for mere 6 miles? on rocky ground in 100+ degree, &/ or below freezing weather in snow. All one has to do is open their eyes & really look to see the panic the fear, & some times the incredible will & courage to remain free. There has been numerous tragic attempts to jump 6′ tall fences, or charge it and die with a broken neck. To see a beautiful free animal end up such tragic fate, breaks a persons heart, &- takes our “Audacity of Hope” away in these hard times!

Windhorse49 – 6/4/2012 7:23 AM

BLM has no transparency, they are very crooked & have a slaughter panel, yes a pro slaughter panel of decision makers on what to do with wild horses, i think that’s pretty cut & dry of —what Ken Salazar has in mind for the wild horses.

Kelly941 – 5/31/2012 5:11 PM

Do you not think those horses are not scared to death, of the helicopters, & all terrain vehicles, & comotion that it takes to do this. These horses are also injured, foals etc. How sad, all for what. BLM says they are ruining the grounds, but once they take all the horses out, they open up the watering holes so the cows can rome freely. Don’t cows leave footprints too. Anyway, this is all blood money for the government, trying to boost our dying economy. This could lead to our wild horses becoming extinct….is this what we want people. Enough is enough already. What are they going to do when they are all gone, start selling our pets!! This is really corrupt & decietful to the American people who know nothing….because they don’t want people to find out what they are up to. Not only is this very inhumane for the animals, sold to kill-buyers & then off to slaughter.
It is also being done on taxpayer’s dollars. Does this not want to make you scream? BLM, leave our wild horses & burro’s alone, they do not even belong to you. Cut the crap, lies & GREED! I’m not buying it & niether are a whole lot of other people who WILL find out your dirty little secret.

Nola sater – 5/31/2012 12:44 PM

Believe it or not, but helicopters are much more humane & less stressful on the horses than gathering them on horseback. Using saddle horses to catch these horses is like watching a stampede as horsemen try to control the galloping horses hellbent to get away. Those who couldn’t keep up were left behind. Saddle horses were in danger trying to keep up with the more hardy mustang running on their own turf. Now that is dangerous for horses & horsemen alike. Helicopters herd the horses at the pace THEY set until the last push into the trap. That is the only time these horses are “stampeded.” Foals & old horses can keep up & are not left behind as they were in the old days of using cowboys & saddle horses to chase them down. As for no gathers??? Every animal needs a population control. Horses have few to none depending on the region they live. They grow at 20% each year. They live in arid to semi-arid places. Grass abundant? No. Water abundant? No. They have to share these limited resources with wildlife & plants. And yes, cattle leases that have been around LONG before the Wild Horse Act. Not gathering & maintaining horse populations will result in degraded rangelands & threaten wildlife populations. Please think about the whole ecosystem & the whole picture before letting your hearts run so completely with wild horses.

Wallingj – 5/31/2012 12:02 PM ::

Sometimes I just do not know where to begin, will what I say make a difference, will those so called open for comment meetings make a difference to the wild horses (BLM)…..Does it matter what we have to say, the tax payer as it seems the BLM do just what they want anyway and when videos are taken and show burros and horses being hit with the skids or when a beautiful stallion that was just running free 10 minutes ago is now dead because he broke his neck in that chute they chased him into, does it matter what I say, does anyone other then people that care deeply for the horrible way in which these Mustangs are being treated care. Now I know that not all BLM employees are desensitized but it is fairly obvious for those that are watching what is happening see it, see the injustice, what exactly is it that allows people to not step in and say this is just not the way we treat our Wild Horses. Watching the last BLM meeting live stream and hearing the BLM saying that what they have done by gathering 47,000 is not working, now they say that, now that it could be possible to open up Slaughter Plants once again, now they say that…The Best interest is what they have in mind for these Mustang’s, then why is this inhumane treatment of them continuing, it is their way or no way, our comments mean nothing to them and the corruption continues to run rampant and here we are once again, trying to help the Mustangs and the abuse continues. So sad when those foals were forced to run and their hoofs were still soft and their hoofs just wore off to nothing, now isn’t that something that would make you or anyone sit up and say, this is abuse to a little foal, just trying to keep up with his Mamma and band while being chased by this object in the sky, would it not make you cringe?

Daily “Gather” Update – June 26, 2012

“Effective immediately, BLM is suspending operations using paint balls to mark targeted “excess” wild horses for removal during this summer’s “bait trap gather” in the Pryor Mountain Wild Horse Range.
Before the paint can dry, the *horses are rubbing against each other* -and- *confusing the paint markings* among the horses.”…

“In 1 instance, a paint ball exploded prematurely and *marked nearby horses*. ”

BLM is “re-evaluating” how to most effectively mark horses for removal; updates will be provided here as soon as possible.

★No horses are being gathered or removed at this time.★ 😀

The color code below identifies tiers established for excess horse removal. This is based on the tiers identified in Environmental Assessment (p. 9-11). http://blm.gov/pjkd Removal TIERS

PAINT COLOR CODE:

Tier One – Blue
Tier Two Higher PriorityOrange
Tier Two Lower PriorityGreen
Tier Three – Red

The wild horse is not hurt as a result of using paint balls shot from a paint ball gun. Even less than experiencing a shot at the doctor’s office or being darted with fertility control drug porcine zona pellucida (PZP), the shooter aims for the hindquarters where the animal feels a quick superficial impact to the outer layer of hide.

“It is the *policy of Congress* that wild free-roaming horses & burros shall be *~protected~* from capture, branding, harassment, or death;
& to accomplish this they are♥ to be considered in the area where presently found, as an integral♥ part of the natural system of the Public Lands.♦”
♦“integral”♦ =according to Merriam-Webster √means
“essential to completeness”
–»then how is it they are outnumbered at least 4 to 1 by cows & sheep? — not to mention the exponentially greater impacts the mining & extractive industries are having on our Public Lands & its waters???? *
other √synonyms for “INTEGRAL”:
*built-in, ♣constitutional, ♦constitutive, ♥essential, ♠hardwired, ♣immanent, ♦inborn, inbred, ♥indigenous, ingrain, ♠ingrained (also ♣engrained), ♦innate, ♥inherent, ♣intrinsic, ♥native, ♠natural !!
* With 10,000–12,000 WH&Bs removed per year, leaving livestock grazing almost ~untouched, I would say {& I*Agree!} current Congress & BLM need *English refreshers* — or some serious legal smacks on the wrist, which they’ve been getting by *Laura Leigh* of Wild Horse Education; IDA, DreamCatcher Wild Horse & Burro Sanctuary; The Cloud Foundation, American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign.

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) continues at a breakneck pace to leave non-viable herds of wild horses on public lands and while it also considers cutting back on livestock grazing (watch out for drought management plans in your area).

Meanwhile, over and over again, extractive industries and new energy projects seem to go almost unchecked for use of massive amounts of water that adversely impact public lands and risk contamination of aquifers.

Just an aside on the letter below, Melani Mirati was the BLM’s COR (Contracting Officer’s Representative) at the 2012 Calico wild horse roundup and made the decision to allow the contractor (Sun J Livestock) to use a hot shot (electric prod) on a horse that had been stuck in a trailer and had just fallen on the ground.  (video link under SOURCES below).

Judge Rejects Gov’t Attempt to Ignore Expert Declarations on Negative Impacts of Plan to Castrate Wild Nevada Stallions 

Washington, DC – May 10, 2012 – The U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia has rejected an attempt by the Interior Department’s Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to withhold and ignore critical scientific evidence in its decision-making process for the implementation of a precedent-setting plan to castrate wild stallions. At issue were expert declarations submitted to the BLM from leading experts in wild horse behavior and biology outlining the devastating impacts of castration on the health and natural behaviors of wild free-roaming stallions and wild horse herds. 

The ruling is part of litigation filed in December 2011 by the American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign (AWHPC),Western Watersheds Project and The Cloud Foundation challenging the BLM’s  illegal plan to castrate hundreds of wild stallions in eastern Nevada’s Pancake Complex…

American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign: Solutions: Ecotourism ** Mar 22, 2012 (saved pg)

–> yes,  ~dear BLM, there Exist : real people … having real √solutions!  ∞
Solutions:
Ecotourism: *Viewing wild Horses & Burros in their *natural state

Ecotourism:  By *State* [link: http://www.wildhorsepreservation.org/solutions/ecotourism_by_state.html ]
As 1 of our British supporters remarked: “1 day I’d like to come visit & *see Mustangs running wild* where they’re meant to.”
America’s wild Horses are *universally recognized* & cherished as American *icons. [link
http://www.wildhorsepreservation.org/world.html ]
Yet, our wild Herds are a mostly-untapped* ecotourism resource*. [link http://www.wildhorsepreservation.org/resources/economicResource.html ]

Horse lovers, wildlife enthusiasts, as well as those with an interest in history of the Old West, should be given the opportunity to
*enjoy wild Horse excursions* year-round.
In addition to non-intrusive observation of wild Horse behavior & Herd dynamics, “in-the-wild management” itself could become part of a unique experience for visitors to (HMAs) *Herd Management Areas.
In this manner, the American wild Horse could establish itself as an economic resource ON the Western Range & better its chances of *long-term survival.

Today, wild Horses & Burros can be found primarily on government-designated Herd Management Areas in *Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Wyoming*, but also in *Maryland, North Carolina, Hawaii, + even in the Bahamas*.

While *Eastern states* have embraced their wild Herds as an *economic resource, –in the West, whose *spirit its wild Herds truly embody,
the Bureau of Land Management has *failed to acknowledge the wild Horse as having ~any Value on the Range.
So, when U opt to spend your summer vacation trekking to western states to view wild Horses in their *natural habitat, u support the *Horses’ value on Public Lands.

•We have compiled a state-by-state *list of Resources for those interested in *observing wild Horses in their natural environment. With a bit of luck, U will be able to witness Horses in their truly *natural state, travelling in small Bands made up of a Stallion + his harem of Mares, or
in Bachelor-bands of young stallions.
•Please be *respectful of Horses as u view them & always *remember that these are *wild animals.
•Stay on marked roadways, avoid water holes & leave all gates as u find them.
•Remember, it is
*illegal to Chase, Harass, or Harm wild Horses or Burros, or to let your *dogs chase them.
This is particularly impt *during foaling* season.
•Be sure to bring pair of binoculars & telephoto lens 4 camera so u don’t disturb the animals by getting too close.

Please keep in mind that most of these are remote, untouched areas.
*Prior to setting out on a wild Horse *viewing trip, make sure to contact local BLM field office 4 current *updates on *Herd movements, fire restrictions, road conditions, maps, + other pertinent information.
