The Bureau of Land Management is carrying our widespread torture and slaughter of wild animals, according to a Nevada Assemblywoman. Michele Fiore has posted pictures on her Twitter account of cattle shot from helicopters by agents of the BLM. These graphic photos show several heads of cattle slaughtered by the government forces, as they attempted to take control of disputed land. Springtime is the season when most calves are born, making the situation worse. BLM agents used a helicopter to frighten the animals. Young, baby cows were separated from their mothers as the cows ran in a panic. Bureau of Land Management supervisors claimed the actions at the Bundy Ranch were necessary to save the desert tortoise. But, just months before the standoff, the BLM was slaughtering hundreds of the endangered animals. In August 2013, the Associated Press reported, "Federal funds are running out at the Desert Tortoise Conservation Center and officials plan to close the site and euthanize hundreds of the tortoises they've been caring for since the animals were added to the endangered species list in 1990."Tortoises that were not killed by the federal agents were released into the wild. The bureau has also recently rounded up horses in the wild which were sold to a slaughterhouse in Canada. Although wild horses are protected by federal law, the agency claims the horses were descended from animals released from rodeos. Animal rights group PETA is reported to be "swarmed with calls" over the revelations of widespread animal abuse by the BLM. In response, they tweeted "These animals shouldn't be killed either by the government, or by the rancher who plans to send the cows off to slaughter. The best thing anyone can do to stop the suffering of animals is to go vegan." (3) Reports of unwarranted violence at the Bundy ranch by agents of the BLM was not limited to animals. On her Web site, Fireo writes "An armed BLM officer picked up Mr. Bundy's elderly sister from behind, a total sneak attack, and body slammed her to the ground; there is video footage. This woman is the mother of 11 and just survived cancer."Download your free Next News "Heroes & Villains" Poster here: USD: BTC: : Facebook: : : the Next News Team: : #N3About:Next News Network's WHDT World News program airs daily at 6pm and 11pm Eastern on Comcast, DirecTV and Over-the-Air and Online at World News is available to 6 million viewers from South Beach to Sebastian, Florida and to 2 million viewers in Boston, Massachusetts via broadcasts on RF channel 44 (virtual channel 9) from Palm City and is carried on cable TV channels 44 (SD) and 1044 (HD) by AT&T, on cable channels 17 (SD) and 438 (HD) in West Palm Beach by Comcast, on satellite channel 44 (SD) in West Palm Beach by DIRECTV, and on WHDN-Boston which broadcasts on RF channel 38 (virtual channel 6) from the Government Center district in downtown about WHDT:
