I LOVE NEW YORK
Keep thinking good thoughts.
After 4 hours of court time yesterday, wild horses and those who stand up for them have reasons for hope.
-The government abandoned venue change battle -BLM hasn't proven captive Colorado mustangs are "excess"
-Judge will rule TODAY
I am a Westerner by birth (4th generation Californian) and by choice, but I'm wondering if all lawsuits filed on behalf of environment & wildlife should be heard away from their rangeland homes.
I'm not convinced that Western judges are unethical, but if they've been reared among miners and cattlemen and see law through that lens, they may truly not see the value of wild things and wild land.
Maybe ABSENCE really does MAKE THE HEART GROW FONDER for wilderness, too. Those who live away from forests, sagebrush, grasslands and wildlife may treasure them more.
Best to you,

Now I get it, so if the judge is in favor of the ASPCA and the plaintiffs then we make it a lot harder for the BLM to capture the wild horses, without proving they're excess. SOunds like if they favor us, we win part of the battle, but not exactly the war.
