A New American Genocide: Horses for Uranium

The Cloud foundation described the helicopter muster of the most famous horse in the herd, a stallion named Cloud, whose life has been recorded by documentary maker Ginger Kathrens.

"Cloud came in reluctantly and then turned and FACED the helicopter," the foundation wrote, "even taking steps back towards the range. Demonstrating his unbelievable courage and clear understanding of the trap he was about to lead his family into."

This wild mustang has more courage and intelligence than the current short term tenants who (unfortunately for the planet) inherited the wild and beautiful lands of America.

All levels of the U.S. "Government" continue to ignore the pleas of those seeking to save these wild herds. The foundation says calls to the government and bureau have not been working, with no concessions made. HorseTalk

A convicted "horse killer" is being paid taxpayers money, by the BLM, to round up Cloud's herd... Real men - who love horses - would not sell their souls to the devil to carry out this environmental crime.

The BLM is attacking this one herd for reasons not fully explained. There has been no public mention of the extreme interest in this area by the Skyline Uranium Corporation, which has direct ties to the United Arab Emirates.

Once removed from public lands the wild mustangs are being secretly killed... Bush, Oil and Wild Horses

The colonisers of America have a history of slaughtering these beautiful animals: "From the journals of the missionaries came these reports: In 1807, two herds of 7,000 mustangs each were driven into the ocean at Mission Santa Barbara to drown: at the San Diego Mission, Mustangs by the hundreds were shut in corals to starve." Save The Mustangs

Another heroic woman: "Wild Horse Annie", alongside hundred of thousands of schoolchildren and wild horse supporters lobbied the government for 18 long, hard years against the unspeakable cruel destiny of the Mustangs.

It was public outcry that ended the open-faced carnage—and it came from the nation’s schoolchildren and their mothers: in 1971, more letters poured into Congress over the plight of wild horses than any other non-war issue in U.S. history; there wasn’t a single dissenting vote, and one congressman alone reported receiving 14,000 letters.
