Fattening up wild horses for slaughter

TUESDAY'S HORSE

“BLM’s got those wild horses as fat as butterballs–all paid for with taxpayer dollars,” explained an anonymous source. “That way they always have buyers wanting them by the truckload.”

This statement was reported by Protect Mustangs here.

For those of you who questioned them, perhaps you understand the strong words I used in this post from last month “Branded. Liars and Killers. The BLM and Its Political Allies” better.

TAKE ACTION

Will you take a minute to sign this Petition?

I signed it. And here is the comment I made:

These are heinous crimes, breaking federal law, which would usually result in a long prison sentence. These BLM employees and the people they are trading with are making money off killing a federally protected species and go unpunished. They are subjecting America’s wild horses to the horrors of the brutality of being killed for their meat…

Bitch Hunts

I have observed many, many times that these so called “advocates” create “bitch hunts” and then, like a pack of rabid dogs, target an individual and do so much damage to that persons reputation either through discriminatory language, vile character assassination, hate speech, whose once important thoughts, ideas and comments, common sense voices are “run out on a rail” and those voices are lost forever. This is the antithesis of advocacy.

Any advocate that would allow anyone to dominate the conversation through hate, disproportionate anger and inaccurate facts but instead allow these radical voices the ability to dominate the conversation about our Wild One’s and give any organization dead set on removing them from their rightful homes or further a agenda that will eventually cause the extinction of our beloveds must be silenced.

When you join forces with these destructive ideas and voices, it speaks volumes to those of us that form opinions about advocates who have been sensible in the past, and normally offered invaluable insight, opinions and ideas. In other words, it damages your credibility within our advocacy. Those of us that work tirelessly, day in and day out, will no longer trust your voice in this matter and will eventually cause your important thoughts and ideas to vanish as you will be ignored.

What you are about to read is exactly right on point and speaks to the egos of pro-slaughter, PZP proponents and their rhetoric. There must come a time when we speak as individuals, or as a group, and take what you need, discard the rest. For example, I no longer participate in groups, nor donate my time, or money to any group or organization that does not accept the science on PZP as clear and present danger to our wild horse/burro populations.

The science has clearly spoken, there is no overpopulation, that PZP will damage herds, mares and their foals permanently. It is just another scheme in order to profit, using our tax dollars to again to exploit these innocent animals to justify a budget for which there is clearly a nonissue.

Any solution that requires any form of damage or harm to family bonds, mares, foals, etc. should always be suspect…always. If you don’t have evidence, then your argument is moot. We have plenty of evidence to refute PZP, and the overpopulation myth. What you do with that information will most certainly determine the outcome of thousands of innocent lives that are the brink of extinction.

Decide to remove these corrupt voices from your realm of influence and take heed from those that have the evidence to back up their claims.

I love sheep, but care not to emulate them.

Did you join the group requesting Nazi-like sterilization experiments on pregnant wild mares?

Now this is what I call ACTION! The letter itself guides you and gives you the knowledge you need to stop the needless ‪#‎vivisection‬ that will occur on innocent wild mares and foals.
Please, if you do nothing else today, take what you need from this letter and make it your own, with your own thoughts and comments, and get this out in order to stop the brutal and unnecessary surgery on our innocent ‪#‎AmericanIcons‬, our ‪#‎wild‬ ‪#‎horses‬. Their freedom depends solely on your actions. Don’t delay.

“We are all, collectively, disgusted and dismayed at the concept of the Oregon State University (OSU) partnering with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to conduct cruel and unnecessary sterilization experiments on federally protected wild fillies and mares.  It is unconscionable and we do NOT want it to proceed and we surely don’t want to watch/observe it.  We want to STOP IT!!!

Many times our readers ask what they can do to help, how can they make a difference, what can be done to stop the madness…well here is your chance to speak out.

Printed below is a letter, minus your personal contact information, that you can update, print out, snail mail or email electronically to OSU and even cut and paste into the…

Bill introduced in the U.S. House to prevent the slaughter of horses

TUESDAY'S HORSE

Federal legislation to prevent the re-establishment of horse slaughter on U.S. soil, bar the live export of horses for the purposes of slaughter, and protect the public from the consumption of toxic horse meat was introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives, April 22, 2015.

H.R. 1942, also referred to as the SAFE Act, is sponsored by Rep. Frank C. Guinta (R-NH-1) and has 41 originating co-sponsors. View co-sponsors here.

“For centuries, horses have embodied the spirit of American freedom and pride,” said Rep. Guinta. “To that end, horses are not raised for food – permitting their transportation for the purposes of being slaughtered for human consumption is not consistent with our values and results in a dangerously toxic product. This bipartisan bill seeks to prevent and end the inhumane and dangerous process of transporting thousands of horses a year for food.”

Rep. Michelle Lujan Griffin (D-NM-1) who helped…

At long last, federal charges for racehorse doping and race rigging now includes  veterinarians. Google image. At long last, federal charges for racehorse doping and race rigging now includes veterinarians. Google image.

In a move that sounded a lot like the other shoe dropping, federal criminal charges have been filed against four racetrack veterinarians involved in treating horses at Penn National Race Course near Grantville, Pa.

Late March 26, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced criminal charges had been filed against racetrack vets Kevin Brophy, 60, of Florida; Fernando Motta, 44, of Lancaster, Pa., Christopher Korte, 43, of Pueblo, Col., and Renee Nodine, 52, of Annville, Pa.

The criminal charges against the vets follow the November 2013 federal indictments of three trainers at Penn National: David Wells, Sam Webb, and Patricia Anne Rogers, as well as clocker Danny Robertson. Wells pled guilty to race-rigging in state court, admitting to numerous race-day medication…

Tricks of the Trade: How EPO is used for blood-doping a horse

TUESDAY'S HORSE

Cross-posted from The Paulick Report »

Erythropoietin is a hormone produced naturally by the kidney that helps regulate the production of red blood cells. Epogen is a drug developed by scientists in the 1980s to treat human diseases like anemia, where red blood cell counts are insufficiently low.

Epogen, or EPO for short, quickly found its way into human sports as the blood-doping drug of choice. The drug, which rose to prominence alongside anabolic steroids in the 1990s, rendered many Olympics results suspicious and carried now-disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong to unprecedented success in the Tour de France from 1999 to 2005 (though he has been stripped of those titles for cheating).

Increasing red blood cells has been a goal in horse racing, too, through conventional treatments like vitamin and mineral supplements as well as illegal methods similar to human sports.

Epogen has been brought illegally into horse racing…

Enough is Enough

As I predicted in Quid Pro Quo. It begins. For those of you who backed BLM and now feel betrayed, it isn’t as if you were not warned. We saw it coming 10 miles down the road. And sadly, the only ones who lose are the magnificent beings that needed your strength to stand firm against their planned extinction. You failed them, failed their families but more importantly, trusted a government agency that NEVER deserved it.

Rachel Reeves Photography

As a general rule, it is a very big mistake for me to start running my mouth off online when I am overly emotional.  The problem with that is that we are only 1/3 of the way into an emotional year that feels like it is just going to keep building and building until everything spirals out of control.  When you are faced with such a time, it seems logical to get it all out in the open while you still have the chance.

Because the fact of the matter is, we were snookered folks.  And the most ridiculous part, is that we were conned by the same people that con us over and over again without remorse.  It’s almost like an abusive relationship.  You tell yourself that this time it will be different, things will get better.

Spoiler Alert:  IT NEVER DOES
