  1. Hi, all. I contacted KLAS-TV to find out what their policy is on other stations airing Knapp’s report. They have reciprocal agreements with all CBS affiliates. All other networks can call KLAS-TV to get information on running the program.

    We should all start calling our local stations to air the report. The more calls, the better chance we have of getting this much needed information out to the public. I’m sure you all agree that the I-Team report, The Stampede to Oblivion, was outstanding. It was factual and the most informative media segment we’ve seen on what is really going on behind the extinction of our wild horses and burros.

    In addition, the person I spoke to said that CNN has aired some of their reports so that is another media we should also include in our calls. I would also include WGN (Chicago-773.528.2311). They broadcast on cable throughout the country.

    If the stations want to contact the KLAS-TV newsroom, the number is 702.792.8870.

    Please cross post this far and wide and ask everyone to start calling their local stations!

    Thanks

    Pam…this is my first visit to your site. Your photographs and mission are amazing. I have a feeling you are making quite a difference. YES…do contact Michael Moore. Expose this issue to the max.
    Thank you for all you do.

    Barbara and friends,

    Thanks for the kind words about Stampede to Oblivion. It’s been 25 years of George Knapp’s stories and investigations into the BLM’s practices when implementing the WH&BA that led to this documentary. I myself have been covering this issue for nine years. Many things were left out due to time allotted for the broadcast, but you can find many of our shorter, more recent segments on the website. I know our station is working on getting the documentary on in other markets, so hopefully it will get worked out soon.

    Thanks again,

    Matt

    Matt,

    So good of you to write. Your documentary is just what our wild horses need right now – more exposure and coverage. I so hope you are able to get it into wider circulation soon. Thanks so much for your work and please pass along a huge thank you to Mr. Knapp as well. I look forward to more from you both on the situation.

    All the best,

    Pam Nickoles

    Lori – thank you so much for your kind comments. It’s my sincere hope that my photos of the wild horses makes a difference somehow. They are beautiful animals and once people see them, I hope they’re inspired to act on their behalf.
