Navajo President Ben Shelly played with words and deceived the national media into believing that horse roundups for slaughter were halted on the Navajo Nation. The horse roundups continue. The Navajo Nation isn't revealing how many horses are still being sent to the slaughter houses from the current roundups.
President Shelly now says that halting the horse roundups was only an idea. Shelly admits it has not happened and the horse roundups continue.
Dine' on the Navajo Nation question why this article below appeared in the print edition of Navajo Times, but not in the online edition of Navajo Times.
Dine' also question why the photos of the horses that are still being rounded up do not appear in the Navajo Times. The previous article in Navajo Times online said President Shelly had halted the roundups, but that is not the truth. The following print article in Navajo Times this week reveals that when President Shelly said he was halting horse roundups, that it was only an idea. Shelly now says the horse roundups will continue.
