Wild Horse Education has published the draft report on operations at the Triple B roundup in Nevada.
The report contains photographs and video of the roundup during foaling season that has already taken the lives of 9 horses. The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) “gather report” claims these foal deaths have been due to abnormalities in the young horses. Documentation obtained shows otherwise.
“The development of the foals I have seen are all within normal range,” says Laura Leigh, founder/President of Wild Horse Education and VP of Wild Horse Freedom Federation “Joint development in young foals has a broad range of normal. None of the foals I was actually able to observe showed any fatal abnormality other than inflammation and damage from a run that never should have been allowed to happen.”
Other issues with this roundup include over driving, poor loading, lack of appropriate amounts of water and lack of public assessment opportunity.
