“There Must Be Dead Horses in This Pilot’s Wake”Laura Leigh could not obtain the position that the BLM’s wild horse stampede contractor, Sun-J, was planning to set up their cruel traps. She was late to arrive but she was NOT too late to snap the shots, above, of the same helicopter pilot, that outraged the nation with his attack on a fallen mare, using his aircraft as a battering ram on a wild horse that was not in the position that the pilot wanted.
This action comes on the heels of a Reno, Channel News 4, report begging the question “Is the BLM Responsible for Animal Cruelty?” where they clearly show the earlier attack via a much circulated amateur video. BLM D.C. spokes person, Tom Gorey states,
“”Our view is this is unacceptable and our hope is that this isn’t repeated and certainly any kind of incident like this to go into our evaluation of what contracts are renewed and which are not”
Although local Reno, BLM ringleader, Alan Shepherd dances with the truth and attempted to put down what is plain to see with the naked eye.
Comments at the Channel 4 website are clearly displaying an outraged public and these thoughts were entered prior to release of this most inhumane and illegal activity. Local residents are calling for the White Pines Sheriff Department to investigate animal cruelty charges against Obama’s BLM and their most outrageous contractors.
