EDITED TO ADD, JANUARY 2020: We have been asked to post a direct link to this video through requests on social media as another operation is scheduled in this area. We posted the link on social media. (you can read more about that announcement HERE)
Warning; many will find the following content disturbing.
You can read a fast recap of the events here: https://wildhorseeducation.org/2018/09/18/eagle-update-cawp-violations/
This video is the property of Wild Horse Education. Contact WildHorseEducation@gmail.com for permissions. Please respect how hard it is to do this work.
To answer questions received:
We dealt with protocol engagement (so it can not be claimed we did not). We have checked all legal options. We made that our priority prior to engaging media. We have no paid staff. We apologize for making you wait for video.
Wild Horse Education is the only org in history to take these issues (inhumane treatment at roundups) to court. When we make a statement we know what we are talking about. The pilot knew as he began to run her that she slipped a foal. This was confirmed by the wild horse specialist (acting COR) onsite, “Yes, the pilot saw her drop as he started pushing her.”
The truth of this matter is not determined in a facebook hate chatroom. It has become a huge issue that many “alt truths” have been created intentionally to sway opinion by both big entities and those “off meds.” This has polarized all issues, including wild horses, and dragged everything back in time.
(Another org sharing this video and telling people to donate to them, while they are not here and can not legally address this, cut our legal options at the knees. WHE is the only org at this roundup.)
9/19 totals: 281 (89 Studs, 126 Mares, 66 Foals), Deaths, 2

This is “big picture” time.
to answer a common question we received today: We were asked why we do not identify roundups by contractor. The BLM is the responsible party. Simplistic example: if you live in a neighborhood where the Association does not want pink houses and you paint your house pink, it’s not the contractors fault that you hired… it’s yours. Under the law BLM is the responsible party. For those of you that want to know who BLM hired for this operation it was Sun J.
