Conquistador: Captured, Conquered, Condemned
Please go to Straight from the Horse's Heart for pictures and links.
by R.T. Fitch and Elyse Gardner
Elyse Gardner served as the “Humane Observer” for the horses during Cloud’s round up. Being a true professional, Elyse would ask pointed questions during the daily operations briefing conducted by the BLM and overseen by field agent, Jim Sparks. Daily she would suffer verbal abuse, lack of courtesy and just simple rudeness. (all of this was documented both on video and in sound bytes), but she continued on when others may have quit.
