Agencies of the federal government are increasingly operating as independent entities, creating their own set of rules or ignoring existing ones as Congress shirks its oversight role and the White House refuses to engage.

The latest outrage involves the slaughter of hundreds of wild horses thanks to blatant disregard by the Bureau of Land Management. This is the same agency that sent hundreds of armed agents to essentially collect a fine from a Nevada rancher who was in his 70s, and the same agency that sells out American taxpayer interests.

The Washington Times reports that the BLM, which is tasked with protecting wild horses and the lands upon which they graze, sold 1,794 federally protected wild horses at a profit to a rancher in Colorado, who summarily sent them to slaughter.

According to a new report from the Interior Department’s Office of Inspector General, rancher Tom Davis bought the horses via the agency’s Wild Horse and Burro Program (WH&B) between 2009 and 2012, then wrongfully sent them off to be slaughtered. BLM falls under the Department of Interior.

Nobody bothered to check why the buyer purchased so many horses
