Wild Horse Herd Counts and BLM and Non-Profit Corruption

“One of the penalties of an ecological education is that one lives alone in a world of wounds. Much of the damage inflicted on land is quite invisible to laymen. An ecologist must either harden his shell and make believe that the consequences of science are none of his business, or he must be the doctor who sees the marks of death in a community that believes itself well and does not want to be told otherwise.”   ― Aldo Leopold, A Sand County Almanac

Here is a quick example of a Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Wild Horse Herd Count. Ironically, many non-profits and individuals today arrogantly acknowledge this misinformation to be in error, then in an arrogant methodology assume it to be okay and actually profit from the misinformation.

Yes, the exploitation of America’s Wild Horses for money, very prevalent. Corruption at its worst and becoming far worse, and involves not only a lack of Humane Principle’s, but assumptions built on a false premise in total.

Many support BLM’s erroneous statistics and numbers for several reasons. Currently we see these numbers provide excuses for low-brow and disgusting experimental birth-control situations on the wild horses and other wildlife as well — the use of Pesticides called PZP, among others.

Yes, due to lack of appropriate scientific information in the matters of the EPA Registered Pesticide PZP, for example, and still obtained by the BLM Voucher and Contract Process (i.e. even though non-qualified to do so within the legal and government policy and regulatory situations), non-scientific and cumbersome experimentation on America’s Wild Horses on our Public Lands remains ongoing – and then to roundup and slaughter.

This is mentioned because the entire program, costing taxpayers billions of dollars yearly, and the false premise it is based upon, can be discontinued easily – but is not and remains corrupt in total. No one really knows how extreme it is, nor the total cost, as it is a non-transparent government agency, with no oversight. So for your understanding, the following . . .


But for easy explanation, let’s start here with 500 Wild Horses and do a quick 20% increase yearly (per BLM assumptive numbers) the BLM way – basically the very ignorant way, or is it for other reasons?

BLM 20% Increase Yearly (no mortality / fatality of Wild Horses ever considered) of example starting with 500 Wild Horses (numbers rounded off to closest decimal)

(Note: BLM Assumptive 6-month old foal, and often less, is considered an Adult Horse for Counts, and often fatality occurs within their 1st year of life up to year 3 of their life . . . neglected also is actual adult fatality in Nature as well, and human contact fatalities also not assumed in BLM numbers)

The following is a ten-year time span:

  • 500
  • 600
  • 720
  • 864
  • 1036
  • 1243
  • 1492
  • 1798
  • 2157
  • 2608


Next we use the BLM 20% Increase Yearly “With” 30% Mortality / Fatality Rates, and as should be done within a truthful aspect of yearly counts (the 30% considered low by many) This would also be without human involvement, roundups, or horses to slaughter — big difference between 2,608 wild horses yearly and as the BLM would like us to believe . . .

The following is a ten-year time span:

  • 500
  • 420
  • 353
  • 247
  • 166
  • 93
  • 52
  • 29
  • 17
  • 10



Why is this important? Because we see the fatalities’ rates, (although very low here and in accord with many Wild Horse observers and those in the field to include myself) and many of us see the fatalities from wildlife attacks, or from a birth gone bad, or from the helicopter and trap site roundups as well.

The 30% fatality figure, even though a LOW percentage, is definitively in accord with Reality and the Truth.

How can we reference these numbers? Well, these numbers are merely examples, but the reality is quite telling. We can go directly to the AML’s. When we do the math we can see the AML’s used to coverup the years of the bogus BLM 20% increase of Wild Horses Yearly – and at the same time we can see the liquidation of the Wild Horses in Long-Term-Holding that disappear from the Inventory Sheets. Consistencies do exist in dates and times of disappearance in accord with many of the roundups. But no one checks the holding corrals for accuracy, other than visuals at times, by many of us.blm-sucks

What is the conclusion here?

The fact is my numbers here simply do not lie, nor are involved in political nor special interest circumstances. We are finding an extremely large taxpayer rip-off within the BLM, their arrangement with welfare ranchers and subsidies being corrupt in total, as well as BLM employees involved directly in fraudulent as well as extreme organized corruption — budgets accomplished by falsified information is Fraud . . . yet ignored in this government agency!  Why?

Ironically, this criminal operation is all under the guise of the supposed process of liquidation of Wild Horses from our Public Lands, and under the pretense of being needed! This is untrue and facts, good science and honesty show above all else, there exists no need to roundup Wild Horses what so ever – as their birth rates, by this same example, show much lower than what the BLM or DOI tell us. And yet . . .

When left alone, even though the numbers above an example, show beyond doubt the truthful birth rates of Wild Horses on Public lands. When all is considered, the Wild Horses should simply be left alone.

Time spent regulating fewer cattle on Public Lands, at a much lower ratio of cattle per acre situation, and within true oversight and management of our Public Lands Ecological Health, should become a priority and replace roundups and wild horses held captive in BLM corrals.

Right now, as oddly as it sounds, the truth is the BLM and DOI’s (Department of the Interior) priorities are based on falsehood, false premise, and outright lies, a broken wildlife and environmental management system that needs fixed badly. Mostly need of repair is the fact of both government agencies choose to ignore good science, and replace it with politically motivate science, or false science with manipulated data or significant data left out of the technical research entirely —

This would also assume a much lower BLM yearly budget, as well as affirm regulatory accountability and transparency achieved much better than exists currently. It has become quite obvious that the BLM and its subordinate situations should become more transparent to the American taxpayers as well as regulatory situations and Oversight Committees monitoring their behaviors.

Conclusively, we find that neither the circumstance exists of Wild Horses damaging America’s Public Lands, nor do we find the birth rates to be extreme, as the BLM and other government agencies and for profit non-profit organizations would like us to believe. Even the numbers show us that, and exemplify the reality of the Bureau of Land Management employees to be corrupt in total —

    The entire Department of the Interior is corrupt. There is not ONE single Agency, Bureau, or Service that does not deliberately lie and slaughter Wild Animals. Horses, Burros, Wolves of all types, Prairie Dogs it is just awful. I say get rid of the entire DOI and start over with qualified Ecologists, Biologists and all other required Scientists required to run these Divisions,. USDA should have NOTHING to do with Wild Horses but the last time I checked they were responsible for the Forest Service Horses and Burros. This is an example of how screwed the entire DOI and the USDA both are. We waste millions doing nothing but harassing and killing these animals for no good or legal reason.

      You are so right, Tiggy, but how can we change this ? Congress has never investigated.

        I have been saying we must organize a ‘Class’ for a Class Action Lawsuit. The Class is the American Taxpayer. We need to Sue from the East and not the West as the Judges in the East are not ‘bought’ by Big Ag or Big Pharma. They will go on the facts presented and there are former employees of some of the sub divisions who are willing to testify. We also have Craig Downer who is a former BLM employee and is now a fantastic Wildlife Ecologist. This can be done but it needs a lot of funds as it has to work its way through the Court System. There is a precedent in the State of New York where a man Sued and got some Great Apes freed from a Zoo and had them sent to a Sanctuary. He showed harm to himself emotionally and monetary harm as well. If you are suing for animals a HUMAN must be harmed. This is clearly illegal but we have been going into the wrong venues.

        Tiggy, as for emotional harm I think the stress has taken a toil on many of us even causing depression at times . I fell so overwhelmed at times and helpless that some nights I barely sleep. I even got pneumonia once standing on a bitterly cold corner in Lexington to protest the roundups.
        As for money a lot of my SS goes for the care of my 5 rescued wild horses.
        The HSUS has loads of money and lawyers but doesn’t sue. I don’t know of any of us that have big bucks. .A class action suit has been mentioned before but was never done.

        Indeed Barbara, emotional harm is one of the ‘Prongs’ included in my Cause of Action. It is all there. It has been frustrating me and making me very angry for years!

    The BLM is worthless. They enjoy the torture they are inflicting in our horses and burros. Please leave them alone.

    Independent (NON funded) analysis of wild horse and burro population increases:

    The BLM bases their management decisions on environmental assessments that cite inflated population estimates. As shown in this study and previous research, the BLM’s assumption of a 20% annual wild horse population growth rate is not based in science; leading to unsubstantiated population estimates with no evidence of excess wild horses.

      We know they are liars and thieves. They send the Wild Horses to kill and they are listed on the export reports as ‘Geldings’. They are still sent to Mexico despite the EU Action forbidding Imports of Horsemeat from Mexico. They just send it someplace else.

    How sad – for lack of a better word – that our elected politicians (Congress) are only concerned with their re-election & an after-congress job possibility! NO investigation of the corrupt agencies of our government – unless it benefits them. We have so few honest & caring politicians that it seems impossible for them to make headway against these crooks. There is so much that should and could be done if we, the people were given a voice!

    I suggested the Class Action but of course I have never gotten too far. I have zero funds, my Board payment for the Rescue Horses is $1350.00 per month. I know how to do this as I have great Attorneys whom have reviewed my Cause of Action and it is completely sound. I have an attorney friend who is a Member of the United States Supreme Court Bar so I trust him completely. I don’t go off half assed about any of this. The Department of the Interior is breaking laws left and right and that has been proven. I want them all fired (including Secretary Jewell) and we can start over with folks like Craig Downer, Raul Grivalia (sic) and others recommended by those 2.

    HSUS in the States sucks. HSI is much better and I support them every month with a small donation. $5.00 is $5,00 and nobody complains about my ‘micro donation’. HSUS does not want ANY type of Horse Slaughter to end. They make big bucks by trotting out these bills and getting fools to work them. They cannot even shut down the Puppy Mills. When was the last time the HSUS had a real Victory for any animal domestic or wild? I gotta look that one up because I have been at this since 1995 and that is a really long time to not have a single win that is meaningful. The Transport Bill was written by the late Trina Bellack and she had to wait for TEN years before it went into effect. She died before it went into effect but she got it done. It is largely ignored but she managed to get the bill passed. That is the ONLY win I can think of from the HSUS. They are useless.
