Alpine Animal Welfare Concern Report regarding the Apache Sitgreaves Forest Service Roundup: In this report we expose incidents of blatant cruelty, as well as concerns about fraud by the contractor Rail Lazy H. (taking the horses she wants before the auction, and never putting them in the auction)
One of the saddest things our documentation proves is the missing foals who are the most innocent victims of the removals. We, SRWHMG, have purchased these mothers in the online auctions, but these very young foals, -which we documented just days before they were caught,- were not with them. These foals are all under 2 months old and could not have survived without their mother’s milk.
In addition, we have documented dead lead stallions, dumped on the side of the road after they died in the traps, and a mare who ran away with broken legs and was then shot in the lungs. (Which is NOT humane euthanasia) Those pictures are too graphic to post, but are included in the report. The Apache Sitgreaves Forest Service has admitted to 7 dead adult horses as a result of this Roundup, but that is without the foals.
Members of congress will be receiving our detailed report in their email. You can help by supporting us, as well as spreading the message of our important documentation. ❤️
Justice for the Alpine wild horses.
