THE TRUTH #6 – Kill Buyer Tom Davis paid the BLM only $17,940 for 1,794 wild horses & burros, but the BLM paid $145,704.60 to ship these animals to Davis
Below are the details contained in a DoI OIG Investigative Activity Report on the costs of shipping wild horses and burros to kill buyer Tom Davis. From 2/13/2008 to 4/24/2012, the BLM spent $145,704.60 shipping our wild horses and burros to Davis. Davis paid the BLM only $17,940 for these 1,794 wild horses and burros ($10 each). The Agent’s Note states “During Davis’ interview, he stated that could make a profit of $2,500 to $3,000 for each load of horses he received from the BLM.”
Most, if not all, of these wild horses and burros ended up going to a likely, and very horrific, slaughter in Mexico.
