Saving the American Wild Horse on Doc Channel (NPT2) Tonight

UPDATE: My sincere apologies to those waiting until 11:00 central to tune in for this. It’s on at 8:00 p.m. AND 11:00 p.m. And I’m sure will be on again. Thanks.

We don’t mention enough the great programming on the Nashville-based Documentary Channel, which broadcasts locally from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. on NPT2 (available to viewers with over-the-air digital receivers as well as cable subscribers on Comcast Cable channel 241 and Charter Cable channel 176). Tonight, there’s a great reason to tune in at 11 p.m. central.

“Saving the American Wild Horse” documents the struggle of an animal that has long symbolized freedom, individualism and unbridled passion; all traits that exemplify what humans strive for in their finest hours. Hosted by Viggo Mortensen, Peter Coyote and Nashville’s Sheryl Crow, and directed by Emmy Award-winning Documentary Filmmaker, James Kleinert, the documentary examines the politics behind the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) controversial policies regarding wild horses on public lands and questions the fate of America’s Wild Horses and Burros, whose very existence is in jeopardy.

The film features original music by Def Leppard drummer Rick Allen, singer-songwriter Lauren Monroe, Craig Sutter, Keith Secola, Grammy Award Winner Robert Mirabal and Preston Pope.

I thank the Documentary Channel for supporting “Saving the American Wild Horse”
I hope the message continues to spread.

The American Government has been acting like a spoiled brat with a blood lust relationship with the American horse. It’s time to grow up and treat these horses like the valuable resource they are instead of getting them out of the way for big business that pays less than two dollars an acre to lease public lands.
They are worth multi fortunes in eco tourism. People all over the world would love to see them and spend time with them. .. as if they have to earn their keep. These horses belong to the American public.

We really need to evolve out of the barbaric past into more integrity in dealing with our inherited treasures. I have never seen the wild horse herds and they are being killed every day to make more room for the defunct cattle industry. Hey, give me land for $2.00 an acre for a business.

If you have an over-the-air digital receiver — either a digital television with an over-the-air antenna, or an analog television with an over-the-air antenna and converter box — you can still watch the Documentary Channel on NPT2.

Thank you for fighting this very important issue. These horses lives depend on our doing all we can. I intend to post this notice on the barns around lincoln ne to help public awareness. So many have told me they cant be shipped for the intent of slaughter. Is there some other way to get this on regular tv.
