“The occasion was a sad commentary on the democratic process, when elected leaders are so intimidated by alternative viewpoints that they stack the deck and shut-out caring and dedicated citizens from sharing their personal experiences and knowledge,” said Anni Williams, TCF Board member who was on location with Kathrens when newborn, for whom TCF was named Cloud, came tottering out of the trees as Kathrens filmed. “Without ever allowing Ginger to cite her scientific sources regarding such issues as to whether wild horses are native or not to North America, Congressman Crescent Hardy abruptly cut her off concluding that he was frustrated by ‘uneducated comments’ expressed by animal rights activists,” Williams concluded.


Even Washington insiders seemed stunned at the one-sided line of


questioning and the level of anger expressed about the presence of wild horses on Western rangelands.


The House Committee on Natural Resources, Subcommittee on Federal Lands It is made up of 24 members – 15 Republicans and 9 Democrats.


Only Republicans asked questions: Tom McClintock (R-CA) Doug LaMalfa, (R-CA0, Rob Bishop, (R-UT), Don Young, (R -AL), Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Cynthia Lummis, (R-WY), Bruce Westerman (R-ARK), and Cresent Hardy (R-NV)


Kathrens was asked no follow up questions on substance. Instead she was


marginalized as Congressmen and Congresswoman, Cynthia Lummis railed against BLM and their inability to control populations. The all-Republican shoot out, was aimed squarely at what they perceived as the silver bullets--- euthanasia, slaughter, and sterilization. One member compared sterilization of wild horses to taking his puppy in for neutering. And Rep. Lummis talked of how she supports humane euthanasia, as the horses would die in a “lovely way.”


“With each passing minute, I was hoping I would actually be asked a question on the factual presentation I made,” stated Kathrens. “That moment never came.”
