Why Did Ken Salazar Threaten a Colorado Springs Reporter?
Colorado Springs Gazette reporter Dave Philipps has reported the federal government allegedly sold hundreds of wild horses to a known kill-buyer.
Interior Secretary Ken Salazar has officially apologized for threatening to “punch out” that reported who asked him about the BLM Wild Horse and Burro program. HEAR the 3 minute audio clip here: http://chirb.it/8zx4Dh
Salazar had threatened reporter Dave Philipps after he asked questions about the progra at an Election Day event supporting President Obama in Fountain. A wild horse advocate from the Colorado-based Cloud Foundation caught the exchange on video.
The L.A.Times has the video interview, but it stops short of the threat. The audio feed DOES however include it.
On a personal note, I have out bid kill buyers several times. Please read my story here.
