This must give avowed anti environmentalist and overall science denier, Drill Baby Spill, Tea Party Caucus Congressman Tom McClintock of CA 04 a nice, warm, fuzzy feeling inside, because now the area up around his homey base of right wing zealots, Susanville, is undergoing a wild horse purge with Federal Tax dollars- for BP and Anadarko Petroleum. Because he had a staffer rep at the BLM’s planning session per documents at the Dept of the Interior website.
They’re going to take 2000 mustangs off the northern California scrubby ranges and leave a small remnant herd of 500. The roundup started yesterday, Wed Aug 11th.
There are only about 4000 wild horses in CA. This removes half our state’s wild horses ! And they’re doing it now during the hot days so it won’t interfere with DEER HUNTING SEASON.
Flat Earth McClintock recently had a hissy fit that the Federal government might transfer some Federal land into a National Park or Monument here up in Northern eastern CA because the government doesn’t “create jobs.”
