Cute Animals

Wyoming & BLM are killing wild horses.

(Please share this. I almost  never ask readers to share my content, but this is an exception.)

This YouTube video link was from just last week. It was taken by me from my camper van, in Wyoming, of the wild Mustangs that are being rounded up and removed to make way for cattle grazing. (I have nothing against cattle grazing.) Baby horses are being killed and no one is exactly sure what BLM is doing with the adult horses that they are catching. By the way, they are using helicopters to run the horses down into exhaustion before either they die or are pulled into the trap trailers. And of course, the strong ones are then continually harassed by a riders on horseback (the irony) until they also, fall from exhaustion. Most Americans don’t even know that this is happening.

*I have been a huge BLM supporter and avid camper of BLM land all over our beautiful country. My entire RV/Boondocking/Nomad/VanLife lifestyle will now change, as I will no longer support or stay on BLM land again, nor will I continue to volunteer for trash cleanup on BLM land as long as this is happening in Wyoming.*

BLM, State of Wyoming- WTF are you thinking??  You need to stop this horrific treatment of Americas wild horses and burros.

I forgot to #FurryFriday

#FurryFriday

Obviously I missed it, but I was with a bunch of #UglyDogs when I was supposed to be for filling my duties and posting photos or videos of #UglyKittens on #FurryFriday. So let’s all just pretend it’s Friday. 🙂

Enjoy the one minute video of these two little monsters.

Sheep. Truck. Highway rollover. #DeadSheepEverywhere

Holy crap. I’m driving West on the 85 about 5 miles outside of Humboldt Nevada, and I just saw a livestock cargo trailer totally rolled over and broken open, way down the side and off the highway. There were several flatbed trucks and dump trucks filled with dad, mangled, bloodied sheep. I cannot believe I just saw that. They are just tossing all the bodies and pieces of bodies into the back of dump trucks bar on flatbeds.  Trust me, even I am glad I did not stop and try to take a picture of it. It was horrible. And yet I cannot help but think, does she probably had a better dad than what they would’ve experienced when they got to where they were being shipped to…

Very sad Springtown pond update. Livermore California.

The pond was seined and everything caught in it was euthanized. The city previously promised that all of the non-native/invasive species of turtles – which really are just people’s discarded pets, would be brought to the turtle and tortoise sanctuary in Castro Valley. Instead, they euthanized all of the animals. I double checked with the man who runs the turtle rescue in Castro Valley and he confirmed that the city did not surrender any animals to him, and he has not even spoken to anyone from the city in months.

I have written and left voicemails, no less than 100 to JUDY who is in charge of this, begging her to allow citizens who want to, adopt these discarded turtles into their own backyard ponds. She would not respond. And yesterday, they were all euthanized. I asked her as a human, as a woman, as a mother – how could she feel OK about killing all of these animals? I asked her if she had any guilt whatsoever.

I don’t know what else to say. It’s over. As a community, we couldn’t even save a whole bunch of innocent animals. As a race, I think as humans, we can be so unbelievably selfish. JUDY had no right to be the decision-maker over hundreds of animals lives yesterday. I actually asked her the question “if somebody dropped a puppy off in a box on your doorstep, would you take it inside or maybe bring it to the pound… Or would you kill it? She had no comment. She has had no comment on any of my questions in the last few months. And I think that says it all.

We lost. A lot of animals died. The innocent animals that we were trying to save are dead.

The city of Livermore is forever going to be shamed for this.
