On Friday, October 12, 2018, CAES filed a 415-page Appeal and Petition for Stay with the Interior Board of Land Appeals.
CAES is asking the judges on the Board to rule in favor of their motion to stop any experiments from happening on the Warm Springs Mares while the appeal against the plan to experiment on the mares can be decided by the Board of Judges.
The Burns, Oregon BLM, along with Dr. Leon Pielstick, Dr. Julie Weikel and others have been working on this plan since they were stopped from doing these experiments in 2016.
In 2016 CAES filed appeal against this plan, and the BLM asked the Board to redact their decision of record claiming they no longer wished to do them.
Since that time there has been a concentrated effort to convince the public and unknowing members of Congress that these experiments are safe and necessary.
Jeff Rose the District Manager and Rob Sharp the Wild Horse & Burro Specialist at the BLM Burns District office conspired with Dr. Pielstick and well-known, pro-slaughter organization Protect the Harvest to circumvent the law and do the experiments.
They sold horses to the organization, they were still behaviorally wild, or ungentled, and Dr. Pielstick knew this and knew what the laws were. Whether or not the law was broken, it was certainly unethical. And BLM broke their own policy by selling to a pro-slaughter organization.
Burns BLM also sold horses knowing they were to be experimented on. That is also a very questionable, and legally questionable action as well.
Then we have Dr. Weikel, another Oregon veterinarian who has been on boards, panel discussions, and speeches to promote the experiments. All the while knowing the federal agency she had been under contract with to do these procedures on cows, was going to be joining BLM to do this. It is likely she will be involved in the experiments in Burns if they are allowed to move forward.
To make matters even more corrupt add in the lies of western Congressman like Chris Stewart:
———-I love these horses….but we have to kill them.————-
And Rob Bishop
———-You will let us do horse abortions or we’ll kill them all.————–
And how do they get the science to prove that this is acceptable via veterinary practice and research standards….even though this is an antiquated, unsafe surgery done in a non-sterile environment, even admitting that unborn foals will be aborted (and stating so as if it is doesn’t matter at all)?
Well, they set up councils, working groups, and advisory boards who will be their puppets. Then they get special interest groups to sit on those boards and support what they want, oh and lets also not forget their wives, cousins, brothers, and work associates, some with absolutely no credentials to write fake reports or studies that might seem to support their agenda.
After digging in and combing through nearly 30 pages of references listed by the Burns BLM in their Environmental Assessment and supporting documents, we provided assessments of many of those studies and reports. We noticed that there are a few names that were common throughout and that the 2 studies the BLM used the most as the foundation of support for these experiments are not written by credentialled scientists, one just written by 2 people who worked for the agency where Pielstick did the experiments before. Pielstick himself has never provided on written Piece of paper on any of the prior procedures he has done.
Earlier in the year, CAES filed a complaint against Pielstick with the Oregon Veterinary Medical Examining Board who opened an investigation. But this whole thing reeks of collusion and we believe even rises to a conspiracy against the American people.
We’ll update you as the case moves forward. For now, we just hope the IBLA can see through these shenanigans and not allow more innocent, sentient beings fall prey to the sick minds of humans.
