    LET’S MAKE THIS ONE OVER 20,000 COMMENTS AGAINST THE ROUND-UP.

  2. Marilyn Wargo Says:

    Was there ever a comment period for the roundup that is in Confusion Mountains of Southwest Utah from Jan. 15 to 21 approximately?? Contractors are to remove 185 of 200 horses or possibly just zero them out. mar

    Has anybody read this?

    For additional information about the upcoming public hearing or future wild horse and burro adoptions, visit http://www.ut.blm.gov , or contact the Delta Wild Horse and Burro Facility 435-864-4068, 600 N. 350 W., Delta, Utah, or the Salt Lake Wild Horse and Burro Center 877-224-3956, 8605 W. 12600 S., Herriman, Utah.

    This is from a newspost on BLM website about a public meeting last May to discuss helicopter roundups. I would check http://www.ut.blm.gov maybe notice is there?

  5. Janet Ferguson Says:

    Why don’t some of the celebrities show up at these roundups? Like Willie Nelson, Carole King.

    THAT you would hope would bring the press out!

  6. Lmeg Bucklan Says:

    Long live our Wild Horses and Burros!…..Management by Murder in disguise! Leave our wild herds alone forever where they are. Cattle numbers should be reduced and/or relocated. Greed, as usual, is the bottom line with this roundup cruelty. Hands off our Wild Herds!

  7. Kelly Drawdy Says:

    This round-up should not happen! The BLM has turned from “Management” to “Mismanagement”. They have become political and not protective. They worry more about the rancher than the horses they are directed to protect. I agree with Janet.. we need some big names.. what about T Boone Pickens and his wife.. she is huge on protecting mustangs..

  8. Ashley Says:

    I think they should leave the Wild Horses alone! They are Free and Beautiful!! Being wild and free is what makes them beautiful!

  9. Joey Says:

    Janet, just read the link you asked if anyone had read…
    Biggest bunch a BS, huh?
    What about the Elk? Do they NOT grow in population? I saw nothing stated there that says those herds are “rounded up”?
    Just the Mustangs… Oh, for their benefit of course, so they can stand around for the rest of their lives listless and lifeless or WORSE!
    Ken Salazar, I guarantee has NOT stepped one foot in his Ostrich Skin cowboy boots onto OUR.. The Mustangs rangeland. He goes by the numbers put in front of him on his desk, takes his red pen and X’s out herds.
    The only predator is the BLM.
    What happened to survival of the fittest in the wild? It’s been working for millions of years.
    I fear the worst here. We will surly be a sorry America if we let our Mustang go the way of our Bison, Wolves, Lynx… etc.
    They take them out, reintroduce and take them out again.
    I don’t understand.

  10. Darlene Says:

    Please stop ! Every living thing deserves to live free and unmolested. It’s the way of the circle of life. LEAVE THE WILD HORSES WILD AND FREE!!!! Quit quelling their spirits and beauty!

  11. jo bunny Says:

    is this the same EA & roundup as the ANTELOPE ROUNDUP that was mentioned a few weeks back here on TCF??? seems like there are 2 things that have comments due on 27 jan…just want to clarify & find out if they are the same or if they are two different ones….thanks.

  12. BlondeNak Says:

    I haven’t clicked the link because they ran a blip in my local paper. It was front page..So I’m not sure if this will be repeat info.
    in addition to the address for written comments an email addy was given for Mary D’Aversa, Schell field manager eaglegather@blm.gov
    Also, “for more information, contact Ben Noyes, BLM Ely District wild horse and burro specialist, at 775-289-1800

    I want to know how he’s qualified to be a specialist. Just because he works for the BLM doesn’t mean he’s a specialist! Nothing I’ve read leads me to believe that these people even CARE about understanding horses.

  13. Marilyn Wargo Says:

    There are two. Antelope and Eagle, I think. I am sitting in me truck trying to get signal! Both are Nevada. Someone just wrote how the Confusion Mountain roundup in SW Utah had no comment period at all… Mar

  14. Janet Ferguson Says:

    OK, I’m addicted to The Daily Blend — what can I say??? They have a wild horse article today:

    HAVE NOT SEEN ANY OF LOS ANGELES RALLY ON NEWS HERE WHERE I LIVE

    ON ANOTHER NOTE SAW ON WORLD NEWS HOW COLD IT IS AND HOW CATTLE AND OTHER ANIMALS ARE SUFFERING IN THE COLD – HOW ARE THE HORSES DOING THAT ARE IN PENS – THEY MUST BE FREEZING

  16. Pat Says:

    Why are the BLM rounding up all the Mustangs just to be put in holding pens that cost taxpayers Millions??? The Mustands are just fine where they are and I am sure that cattle will survive if they only have limited use of this precious land. If cattle ranchers are such good ‘land managers’, they should be able to come up with a suitable plan for ALL the wildlife to survive.

    BLM Seeks Public Comment on Eagle HMA Wild Horse Gather Preliminary EA

    Ely, Nev. – The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Schell Field Office has released the preliminary environmental assessment for the Eagle Herd Management Area (HMA) Wild Horse Gather. The BLM is proposing to reduce the herd size to approximately 100 animals, to maintain a thriving natural ecological balance among wild horse populations, wildlife and livestock. The BLM invites the public to review the document and will accept comments through Jan 27, 2010.

    The appropriate management level (AML) for the Eagle HMA is 100 to 210 wild horses. There are an estimated 595 wild horses in the HMA. The BLM is proposing to gather and remove approximately 495 excess wild horses from the Eagle HMA, which is located in eastern Lincoln County, about 50 miles southeast of Ely. The BLM also plans to gather 50 wild horses that reside outside the HMA. The gather is scheduled to begin in February.

    The gather is needed to protect the range from further deterioration associated with overpopulation of wild horses. By removing excess animals, the BLM will be able to improve vegetation, habitat, watershed health, and to make significant progress toward achieving Mojave-Southern Great Basin Resource Advisory Council standards for rangeland health. The BLM will collect information on herd characteristics and determine herd health during the gather.

    The Eagle Herd Management Area Wild Horse Gather Preliminary Environmental Assessment is available at http://www.blm.gov/nv/. Click on the Ely District map and then click on Eagle Herd Management Area Wild Horse Gather Preliminary Environmental Assessment under “In the Spotlight.” Paper copies are available at the BLM Ely District Office, 702 North Industrial Way, in Ely.

    Comments will be accepted for 30 days until Wednesday, Jan 27, 2010. Interested individuals should mail written comments to the BLM Ely District Office, HC 33 Box 33500, Ely, NV 89301 attn: Mary D’Aversa, Schell Field Manager or send an e-mail to: eaglegather@blm.gov.

    For more information, contact Ben Noyes, BLM Ely District wild horse and burro specialist, at 775-289-1800.

  19. Brenda Robinson Says:

    These horses and other wildlife deserve to live free.
    The round-ups must be stopped. They are brutal and cruel. Man has to learn to live with other life forms – not remove them because they interefere with man’s plans. Some things are important enough to leave be, and these horses are one of those things.

  20. Michael J Ahles Says:

    We can’t fight city hall, the cattlemen, or BLM, but we can choose wisely what we eat. Boycotting beef will free the mustangs, and help preserve America the once proud home of the free.

  21. Lmg Bucklan Says:

    The cattlemen/ranchers will have to swallow two things:

    Red meat has been determined to be not as nutritious as earlier believed, and many people, including my family, have fully deleted from our diets.

    Current economic conditions prohibit many from buying MEAT because they just don’t have the money left on their reduced grocery lists.

    So, get ready for selling beef as the market is shrinking……………
    The “pocketbook” thing makes a BIG difference when your PRODUCT is NOT selling!

  22. Lmg Bucklan Says:

    It’s interesting to note that it is always the “least of the least or those who cannot fight back”(in this case the Wild Herds) who pay the biggest price in life. In this case, the Wild Herds cannot vote or pilot a helicopter to chase BLM big wigs into exhaustion, and then hold them in a pen without any shelter from the winter winds and precipitation. Where’s the shame! Greed rules and is the motivator. Wouldn’t it be fun to see the Herds chase their enemy around in the snow….

  23. Michael J Ahles Says:

    A grass roots solution
    The solution to freeing the mustangs or preserving America the land of the free is simply to boycott beef. Some have argued that not everyone will stop eating meat for freedom, but freedom doesn’t need everyone, not even a majority. Even a small minority will be enough like a tiny sting of a bee to set the west free. America must be preserved, our land must remain free.
    Don’t eat beef and tell a friend.
    Thanks,

      What I don’t “get” is if the beef market is falling, why so many new cattle leases in the areas of the Calico, etc. that they are presently zeroing out? Why the jump.
