Federal Appeals Court Denies Emergency Request to Halt Triple B Roundup

Federal Appeals Court Denies Emergency Request to Halt Triple B Roundup

BLM Cleared to Begin Massive Mustang Capture Operation in Northeast Nevada Tomorrow

We’re sorry to deliver the disappointing news that, earlier this afternoon, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals denied an emergency request to halt the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM’s) Triple B roundup in Nevada.

The BLM reports that it will begin the roundup tomorrow near the Utah border. The helicopter stampede and capture operation will last six weeks, removing an estimated 1,700 mustangs from their homes on public lands.

Many thanks and praise go to Rachel Fazio, lead attorney, and local counsel Julie Cavanaugh-Bill for their tireless efforts on behalf of plaintiffs The Cloud Foundation, ecologist Craig Downer and wild horse advocate Lorna Moffat.

For more information on the Ninth Circuit’s ruling, please see the Associated Press story here.

    I was horrified to see how people who claim to care about the well being of these animals can be so cruel. Especially the horses and donkeys who are old or injured. No animal should be treated this way. This is outrages and I couldn’t be more ashamed of the the way they call this humane treatment.

    This is a criminal offense! This is an outrage! What is the corrupt government thinking!!!!? I thought our government was based on “We the People”; not “those lobbiest”! My heart aches! Our system is corrupt!
    Please STOP the insanity!

    I have been dealing with much the same as everybody else posted here. Short answer: I was on the phone in a 3 way call with Citi and A rep from the HAMP program…Citi tried to explain that it is their companies policy that if someone has been in a modification that they previously denied, that they do not authorize another offer. Rep from HAMP demonstrated that they were operating in violation of the law, as law states that if applicant has undergone significant life changes or significant income changes, the applicant MUST be given additional consideration. HAMP rep stated that my divorce and loss of half of household income would most certainly be considered significant changes in my status. Citi was informed that they could either re-evaluate me in accordance with the law, or that their banking practices could be re-evaluated. Citi rep decided to finally re-open my account. Citi is knowingly violating the law and using it’s own company policies instead. I was also told by Citi that my requests had “fallen through the cracks”. Still awaiting outcome.

    Funny how BLM government officials nearly always cite maintaining a Thriving Natural Ecological Balance when justifying their gutting of the scant remaining wild horse and burro herds! In fact, it is the exact opposite of thriving and natural and balanced that they are perpetrating by these devastating and cruel helicopter roundups that are aimed against the tiny remnant populations of wild horses and burros that remain in America, where they restore the ecosystem as returned natives and heal the deep ecological wounds wrought by man! Please read my book The Wild Horse Conspiracy that I have labored to produce as a positive and well-rounded revelation about the true story of the wild horses and burros and why they belong here and how we can restore them as naturally self-stabilizing herds.
