Mustangs. Tape, Anyone?

Please see if you would like to help the poor mustangs?   Nature needs to be left alone, or it upsets the ecology, and the food chain.  Let alone the cruelty of their treatment, and deaths, is awful.

See what Willie Nelson says:

“Nevada's Bureau of Land Management plans to herd a large group of mustangs out of their peaceful habitat—a practice that is responsible for the senseless injuries and deaths of thousands of these wild and beautiful creatures.”

“The horses were run into traps in freezing conditions with rain and snow and overnight lows dipping below 0ºF. BLM spokesman Jeff Fontana reported that 217 were removed, leaving 59 on the range. This roundup was originally planned for a removal of 536 horses to get down to a BLM-approved level of just 85 horses or less.” From:

Mustangs-huddled (Small) Once free – Their beautiful lives ruined.

Sign the petition and send your comments to President Obama and your representatives here, please. 

As Gandhi once said, "The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated”

Not your usual MacGuyer-ing!
“You can do anything with duct tape, but why would you? It's ugly, plain and simple. Working with clear tape is prettier and requires a bit more finesse.
Made for an art competition sponsored by Scotch, these Scotch tape sculptures are created free-form or by making a sort of Scotch tape mold. Some contain as many as 48 rolls of tape. That would cost a pretty penny, but it's nothing if you can manage to take home the nearly $5,000 grand prize.”

I think some people have too much time on their hands!

58.9 deg. right now.  So it is warm enough to let the cats out onto the screen porch, today.
