United Horsemen President Dave Duquette Discredited by National News Articles
United Horsemen's discredited Dave Duquette
After the bumbled $ue Walli$ attempt to ram a bloody horse slaughter plant down the throats of angered residents of Mountain Grove Missouri, Dave Duquette, president of a dubious horse slaughter and meat packing front call United Horsemen (UH), publicly released an inflammatory message to his handful of fellow horse haters:
“Here’s the deal folks, again Steven Long just prints anything his buddies from EWA put out as gospel. Reality is there was about 30 people there and no one was turned away. Most were from out of town. There was NO vote of any kind. This meeting was contrived by an HSUS attourney. So this was not representative of the population in that area.” (poor grammar and incorrect spelling not edited)
Duquette is referring to his ongoing battle with the first amendment, free press, common sense and well known author and publisher Steven Long of Horseback Magazine who printed a press release from the pro-horse organization, Equine Welfare Alliance (EWA). Vicki Tobin, VP of EWA, was quick to counter the malicious and slanderous statement:
“The propaganda machine is alive and well! Apparently our opponents attended a different meeting in Missouri. In an attempt to do damage control, they are claiming only 30 people attended (one look at the video footage in the links on this page prove that is a lie) and that people weren’t turned away – they evidently didn’t check with the police but they aren’t big on research.
We never said there was a vote but the outrage from the residents (yes, Dave, they were all from the town) in the room was certainly a representation of the town not wanting a slaughter plant. Of course, they had to get a dig in against HSUS by saying the meeting was organized by an HSUS attorney. Wrong again, the law firm is not associated in any way, shape or form with HSUS and HSUS was not involved in this effort.
You would think their few supporters would be enraged at the lies they are fed but alas, they follow like lemmings without questioning a thing.
Curious he didn’t mention why Wallis HAD to move her meeting from the YMCA to a livestock auction. Let’s see them spin the truth on that one.”
Duquette, who’s horse slaughter organization will be hosting a so-called Summit next month to discuss how to kill and consume America’s favorite, large companion animal, was further discredited by a nationally syndicated newspaper article which was featured in the home state of “Slaughterhouse” $ue Walli$ herself, see below:

MOUNTAIN GROVE, Mo. — Emotions ran high Tuesday when a large crowd heard testimony for and against a Wyoming company’s proposal to build a horse slaughtering and processing plant in southwest Missouri.
The Mountain Grove City Council meeting had to be moved to accommodate the large crowd and some speakers were booed, prompting Mayor Delbert Crewse to call for order and warn people they would be removed if they could not stay quiet.
A Wyoming company, Unified Equine, LLC, is conducting a feasibility study on building the plant between Mountain Grove and Cabool, in the Twin Cities industrial park. The company has not yet sought a Missouri Department of Natural Resources permit for the plant that would produce meat for human consumption.
Roger Lindsey, president of the Twin Cities board, was booed several times as he testified that the plant would bring between 40 to 55 jobs and economic investment of between $6 million to $7 million in infrastructure.
“I think two years from now if you come down and talk to me, people are going to be glad this is here, and it will be a great success, but it needs to be done right. There’s no doubt about that,” Lindsey said.
But Mountain Grove attorney Cynthia MacPherson testified that the plant would destroy the region by bringing environmental damage, crime and lower property rates.
“We get nothing out of it, except destroy this community. That’s it. We will destroy this community,” MacPherson said.
MacPherson said after the meeting that she planned to speak to the Mountain Grove Board of Aldermen this week to discuss pollution problems, reduced property values and animal abuses that she said have been reported at horse slaughtering plants in Texas and Canada.
“I think the most important thing is to make the public aware, and to educate the council,” she said.
MacPherson estimated 300 people attended Tuesday’s meeting and most of them seemed to oppose the plant.
“I was overwhelmed; I did not expect this,” she said.
Lindsey acknowledged he had a rough reception at the meeting.
“Sure, tough questions need to be answered,” Lindsey said in an email to the Springfield News-Leader. “Will there be risk to the ground water and environment? Will local workers be hired compared to nonlocals? Will property values be harmed?”
Lindsey said he wasn’t used to hearing opposition to new jobs for the area.
“But I do understand these legitimate questions about the environment and I know processing horses creates a highly emotional atmosphere for some,” he said. “If you all have any say in this I hope you will consider what a new plant and the jobs from it, with proper safeguards will do for our area.”
The proposed facility also has sparked a local Facebook page “The Community Preservation Project” aimed at halting the plant. Horse lovers also have launched an online nationwide petition at Change.org hoping to prevent the plant from being built in Missouri.
Representatives of Unified Equine, LLC, will have an informational meeting Monday at the Ozarks Family YMCA in Mountain Grove. Wyoming state Rep. Sue Wallis, R-Recluse is the CEO of Unified Equity. She and others affiliated with the project plan to attend. The Cabool City Council is also scheduled to hear presentations on March 19.
So however you cut it, Duquette has simply and unwittingly verified that anything related to $ue Walli$, Duquette, United Equine and United Horsemen is unequivocally steeped in great heaps of bull pooh and rotting animal innards. The dumb just keep getting dumber and only the stupid will follow behind.
If it weren’t so perverse and twisted it would almost be funny.
