BLM Approves Ruby Pipeline for BP Gas
Wild Horses to Pay the Price

WASHINGTON, DC – The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has just approved the Ruby Pipeline through a destructive route across the West. This is the same pipeline that will carry British Petroleum (BP) gas.
The route chosen and approved by BLM for the Ruby Pipeline is the least expensive and most damaging route. Instead of choosing to build on already disturbed lands along highways and power lines, the BLM has allowed the path of most destruction through pristine wilderness.
In April, suspicions peaked when the project coordinator for the pipeline told a reporter that "All hell would break loose" once the plan was approved, and that the pristine land along the route would "look like Hiroshima." Would that be a reason to thin out the horse herds? The BLM and El Paso both vigorously deny the Calico roundup was related in any way to the pipeline, but it is clear from documents that the mustangs were discussed by both at several points in the permitting process.
