The Real Cost of Rounding up our Wild Horses and Burros
I don’t even know where to start with this post. The more you read, and learn about this issue, the more infuriated you become. Peeling back the layers on this, is mind boggling. The Real Cost of Rounding up our Wild Horses and Burros is in the millions. Millions of our taxpayer dollars, wasted on an antiquated and corrupt government program. I’m going to say right now, that I had help with the information in this post. Friends who care as deeply about this issue as I do, contributed time, research hours and facts. I feel strongly that all this information needs to be in one, easy to find, easy to read, easy to share place. At the end of this post you can find a PDF to download, print, and share.
These are OUR taxpayer dollars paying for this. Our tax dollars wasted on roundups, holding facilities, and so much more. It’s time the Bureau of Land Management was held accountable.
In my last post, Never Forget what Happened at Onaqui, I said that 435 horses were removed from their homes. Care to venture a guess as to how much that cost? According to USASpending.gov, Shayne Sampson owner of Sampson livestock received $105,710 to run our horses into a pen with a helicopter and haul them off the range.
