Illegal Rancher Sides with Utah Politicians to Wage War on Wild Horses

Confusion Reigns Supreme as Welfare Rancher Plays “Tit-for-Tat” with BLM

"If you do DAT I'm gonna do DIS!"
“If you do DAT I’m gonna do DIS!”
According to recent news stories Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally been grazing cattle on public land for some 20 years. Apparently the BLM has had enough after two decades of Bundy not following due process and enrolling in their failed and broken “welfare rancher program” so the agency intends to round up the cattle and send them off to auction, can you believe it?
But ole Cliven and his half wit small town politician buddies are behaving much like little children in responding with a statement of, “if you do THAT then we will do THIS”. Some little boys just don’t grow up and of course, the horses are the ones to pay the price.
A notice was sent Tuesday to the BLM that read in part:
“You are officially put on notice that at the moment any action in Clark County, Nevada is taken to gather and confiscate private cattle without managing your own responsibility of feral horses in West Iron County to appropriate management levels, orders will be given to the Iron County Sheriff, deputies and other authorized agents to take necessary means to reduce the numbers of feral horses . . . This is not a threat. This is a plan of action,”

The BLM’s plan to send the cattle off to auction begs the question of why the agency didn’t simply contract with a slaughter house and ship the cattle off to be butchered like they recently did with a herd of wild horses.
Personally, I enjoy seeing anyone or anything being a thorn in the side of the bloody, slaughter loving BLM but it is painful to see the wild ones being used as pawns, again.
The poor horses never seem to be able to catch a break.
