UPDATE ON HORSES BEING TORTURED BY THE HAVASUPAI TRIBE MONSTERS

Original Post: MONSTERS OF THE HAVASUPAI TRIBE I told you about these horses over a year ago and tonight I’m driving and on the radio is Susan Ash of @HavasupaiHorses talking about the horrors still going on there.

Senate bill could trigger mass slaughter of wild mustang

The fate of thousands of wild horses hangs in the balance as the Senate considers an amendment to a spending bill that would allow euthanasia of mustangs and burros roaming free on land owned by the federal government.

The amendment would allow the Interior Department’s Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to sell excess wild horses without an assurance they wouldn’t be slaughtered. The matter will eventually be settled in negotiations between the Senate and the House.

CBS San Francisco traveled to the Utah desert, 50 miles northwest of Cedar City, to witness a federally mandated round-up of an icon of the American West.

Using a helicopter that looks like it was stolen from the set of M*A*S*H, federal agents began the process of gathering 50 wild horses.

“When you have horses that close, when they come into a trap site, they’re very fresh, they have a lot of energy. When you’re gathering wild horses, they are wild animals,” said Gus Ward, the BLM’s Wild Horse and Burro lead for Utah.

The roundup is the result of a lawsuit settled by the state of Utah over horses encroaching on ranch land. With repeated helicopter passes, stallions, mares and foals are driven out of hills and corralled into a trap to be sorted.

From there, they’ll be taken to a holding facility and hopefully adopted.

California Poised to Become First State to Ban the Sale of Puppy Mill Dogs in Pet Stores

Local and national animal protection organizations commended California lawmakers for passing legislation that will prevent the sale of commercially raised dogs, cats and rabbits in pet stores across the state of California. The law also encourages partnerships that promote the adoption of homeless pets.

Authored by Assemblymember Patrick O’Donnell (D-Long Beach), Assembly Bill 485 protects animals and consumers, and sets an important precedent for the rest of nation. To date, 36 jurisdictions in California – including the cities of Los Angeles, Sacramento, San Diego and San Francisco – have enacted similar ordinances, and the passage of AB 485 moves California one step closer to enacting the first statewide prohibition on pet store sales of dogs from puppy mills.

There is something about street dogs, about rescues; they have this knowing sense about them.
