BLM helicopter contractor Sue Cattoor has posted a photo of the second mare who was shot by BLM because she was “thin” and “very old.” The mare was shot after she was terrorized and traumatized in a helicopter stampede and separated from her family. According to the BLM, this is a mercy killing.

Meanwhile, two horses have died at the Fallon holding facility. The latest fatality is a 12-year old mare who had been at the facility for four days.

Current capture count: 759 horses, fatalities 5. One stallion escaped to freedom.
