The majority of info, statistics, and records listed here come directly from BLM and the government. They are a self-regulating industry with absolutely NO oversight or accountability. There is no independent accounting of this program at all. Due to this one-sided version it is believed the numbers listed here of wild horse and burro estimates, and removals are inflated, suspect, and inaccurate. We will attempt to prove this with reviewing their claims with attached evidence and links to outside sources that have witnessed discrepancies and inaccuracies over the last 50 years since the passing of the Wild and Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act of 1971

LOOK IT UP YOURSELF – KNOWLEDGE IS POWER
While you can go through the entire ‘Fight for Freedom’ data base and likely find exactly what you are looking for (already completed) in its pages, if you would like to explore our government and see how it works, I’ve pulled all the resources together for easy location so you can also research yourself.
Every link below has ‘direct’ connections to the wild horses & burros across America.

PRESERVING ONLINE EVIDENCE (#evidence)
Rule 901 & Rule 1002. Authenticating or Identifying Evidence and original photos
Authenticating Digital Evidence at Trial 2017 ABA (American Bar Association)
Recent Federal Court Ruling on Admissibility of Online Evidence – 2015 ABA (American Bar Association) “Proponents of online evidence have faced difficulty with the personal knowledge requirement of Fed. R. Evid. 602. One federal court previously ruled that a person who has seen a printout of a webpage, but could not testify from personal knowledge that the printout accurately reflected the website, was insufficient to establish authenticity. See Cook v. J & J Snack Foods Corp., 2010 WL 3910478, at *5 (E.D. Cal. 2010). In September 2015, another federal court went a step further by excluding printouts of online news articles even with a witness who was able to say that the printout appeared as they did on the webpage. See Berrettini, 2015 WL 5159746. First, the court noted that printouts from Westlaw or other archives of articles that were previously published by separate newspapers or periodicals were not self-authenticating. Id. Additionally, it held that with regard to archive websites such as Westlaw, “any attempt by a user of the website to authenticate from memory must fail” because there needs to be personal knowledge of the reliability of the archive source“
