WHOA SPECIAL EDITION March 2016 – June follow-up @ bottom

WHOA WINS vs NM Livestock Board in                               NM Supreme Court – Thanks to Placitans

Court details are in the online newspaper here, also: Which entity should get the Placitas Area Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Lands: WHY and WHY NOT?

WHOA E Newspaper pic2JUNE 2016 Follow-up:

No Surprise! The June edition of the local monthly tabloid of Sandoval County continues to misrepresent the NM State Supreme Court which upheld WHOA’s WIN, in their tabloid’s current June edition. The tabloid intentionally misleads its community readership and especially it’s Placitan readership again, on a number of points including:

THE USUAL TABLOID – MISLEADING: “In October, the New Mexico Supreme Court declined to hear the case, so it’s now back in the hands of the Albuquerque judge. . . .”

This implies that WHOA lost: NOT SO! The Supreme Court declined to hear the NM Livestock Board’s/Reynold’s request for appeal of the WHOA’s Wins so far. Hence it did NOT dismiss WHOA’s case, and hence, remanded it back for further proceedings in District Court. There is further controversy between the parties to be decided by the courts.

TABLOID OWNER – CAUGHT: The owner and publisher of the local tabloid in Sandoval County was rounding up horses himself, as stated in a Sandoval County Sheriff’s police report (see page 8 of WHOA e-newspaper above). However he refuses to openly declare his conflict of interest to his readership, as journalistic integrity would require, and as formally requested by WHOA.

WHOA is winning, so far, for wild horses and habitat in New Mexico based on its NM state legislation passed in 2007.

Great News!!! Pueblo of San Felipe Press Release (Complete!)

I. San Felipe Pueblo Saves 14 wild horses gathered by Santa Ana Pueblo from       Slaughter!  (This story  hidden from it’s readership by the Sandoval    Signpost, see below.)    

WHOA is investigating. WHOA believes these horses 14 horses could not legally be sent to slaughter due to the recent WHOA Court Case win in the NM Supreme Court  upholding WHOA legislation which defines and protects wild horses in New Mexico as protected wildlife. WHOA is deeply appreciative of the San Felipe Pueblo for their leadership and care regarding the beautiful wild horses which they have always recognized as wild and plan to utilize for New Mexico Eco-tourism.

WINDMILLS & WATER FOR WILDLIFE: Third Update!

San Felipe Pueblo – Wild Horse Sanctuary, New Mexico, United States

Martinez - Exec Order Slaughter Press Release-2

November 6 2015

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

WINDMILLS/WATER FOR WILDLIFE: Third Update!

New Mexico, United States

Yet a third “Water for Wildlife” project at the honorable Pueblo of San Felipe has been completed.   This time a brand new well has been drilled and installed, primarily funded by a WHOA grant from the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) with generous donations and collaboration with PlacitasWILD and other non-profits. 

STRATEGICALLY LOCATED

This well is in a location where it  can potentially provide water for wildlife on the Bureau of Land Management Lands (BLM) lands contiguous with the San Felipe Pueblo to the north and Placitas to it’s south. These lands are known as the Buffalo strip and are part of the last viable Sandia Mountain wildlife corridor.

WHOA would like to thank the Pueblo of San Felipe for their long term wildlife work the ASPCA for their long term support and PlacitasWild for their collaboration generous donations.

The Windmills for Wildlife project is critically important for the area wildlife including wild horses, in the Sandia Mountain – Rocky Mountain wildlife corridor, as intermittent drought has hit New Mexico in recent years.
