Director, producer, and cinematographer James Anaquad Kleinert, who directed the documentary “Wild Horses & Renegades“, has filed a 20-page letter with the BLM for the scoping period regarding the round up scheduled for Jicarilla Wild Horse Territory in northwestern New Mexico. He believes it very well may stop the round up.
“The scoping letter in my opinion is very powerful in bringing forth critical issues and forcing the BLM to confront its illegal practices,” states Kleinert.
Expressing gratitude to attorney Diane Wolfson for her support with the letter, Kleinert asks wild horses advocates to join him sending the letter to firstname.lastname@example.org with a copy to JTafoya@blm.gov.
“This letter can also be used as a draft letter for future BLM proposed round ups,” he adds.
IN THE HANDS OF KILL BUYERS! When horses are purchased at auction by buyers intending to kill them, they're hauled away in double- decker tractor trailers where they are beaten and often blinded with baseball bats to mollify them. After crossing the border into Mexico, the animals are stabbed on each side-an act to tenderize their meat-and immobilized. Workers, then saw the horses legs off, at the knee and hang them to bleed out-all while the horses are ALIVE! (This is an excerpt, from an article written by Missy Diaz, crediting Victoria Mc Cullough and Sen. Joe Abruzzo for bringing awareness of horse slaughter, to Florida. In 2010 Florida Legislation unanimously passed the Horse Protection Bill, making it a felony to slaughter horses for personal or commercial use.)
