Mrs Pickens responds to the BLM rejection of her wild horse sanctuary plans which she has been working to put together since 2008.
The BLM issued its rejection with a late placed press release via Bob Abbey, full of the usual disingenuous opinions. It appears that Abbey did not even have the courtesy to contact Mrs Pickens first.
Hot on the heels of the Abbey press release, Martin Griffiths of the Associated Press filed another report. It is full of more hypocrisy, this time via BLM spokesman Tom Gorey. However, equal time is given to some facts in the matter.
No matter what side of the fence you are on, why does none of this seem to add up? Like the number of wild horses and burros rounded up, captured, died during and after, are in herd areas, and stored in short-term and long-term holding, it does not.
Mrs Pickens’ response is in two parts.
