BLM Illegally Sells Protected Wild Horses for Slaughter


Ranchers who sell beef to Whole Foods Market are behind the largest mustang roundup of 2015-2016 is now underway in southern Oregon.

Ranchers who sell beef to Whole Foods Market are behind the largest mustang roundup of 2015-2016 is now underway in southern Oregon. Whole Foods has reacted to this news, by telling us to talk to the ranchers. (Read more about our correspondence with Whole Foods and its supplier Country Natural Beef here.)

Right now, wild horses are being brutally rounded up, removed from their families and their homes on the range, all so that ranchers can profit by selling beef to Whole Foods. Whole Foods then markets this beef as “grass-fed” to its customers and sells it at a premium.

Don’t let Whole Foods pass the buck. The natural foods giant must incorporate mustang safe standards into its animal welfare policies.

  1. Pathetic! And not only wild horses are being destroyed at a terrible rate for ranching, wolves, coyotes, grizzlies, sage grouse, prairie dogs, and many other animals are wasted so that these ranchers can give people meat to eat. People don’t seem to know or care about the ugly, hidden side to the food they eat, and until they do start to realize and care, nothing will change. I don’t eat beef, don’t shop at Whole Foods, and won’t after this.

    Here’s a butternut squash pie made without eggs and dairy – I haven’t made a totally vegan pie before, and this one looks delicious. Many of the vegan desserts are just as rich and eye-pleasing as their counterparts. Happy Thanksgiving!
