Just when you thought Wallis couldn’t stoop any lower…
“These comments really hit home as both my wife, Terry, and our good friend and Director of Wild Burro affairs at Wild Horse Freedom Federation, Marjorie Farabee, have had their lives turned upside down due to the wild fires in the Magnolia, Texas area the last 10 days. The fire has come just scant miles from both of our ranches. Terry still has an evacuated equine guest or two with our rig locked, loaded and ready to roll with the herd while Marjorie has many of her 107 charges off in alternate areas. There is nothing either funny or at all related to eating horses regarding REAL responsible horse people attempting to save the lives of their valued equine charges. But the sick and twisted Wyoming State Rep. “Slaughterhouse” Sue Wallis and her impotent lap dog Dave “Doink” Duquette can see an opportunity to slurp up horse blood at every turn, even in a tragedy. Their perversion is despicable. Thanks Vicki for continuing to expose then for what they are, the very dredges of human society.” ~ R.T.
Surprise! It can be done.
We are all saddened by the losses from the wild fires in Texas and helping where we can. While many of us from out of state can’t help on the ground, we are providing information on ranches that can temporarily house horses, who to call for help and moral support.
Are you wondering what the Texas wildfires could possibly have to do with horse slaughter? I thought the same thing when I received a call last night saying “they’re” now using the wildfires to call for slaughter. Being the skeptic, I asked for proof. This exchange took place on Saturday between 12:18p and 3:22p on Facebook. And of course, she never misses a beat to slam Senator Landrieu and HSUS.
Poster: I don’t think anyone is against helping. My friends in Texas would help me I’m sure, however, I have nothing to give. Our own drought here in Arkansas has limited our supply and then dealers sell promised hay to someone else, well it all becomes about the $$ signs. We desperately need horse processing and soon, I foresee a time in the not so distant future where there is no hay to buy from anywhere and no place to sell the horses.
Wallis: Desperate times call for desperate measures — we need as many people as possible to hear loud and clear what Belinda Merritt just expressed! This is awful, and we all do whatever we can, but without the long-term permanent ability to do the right thing for horses that can’t be supported…everybody and everything suffers way more than is right or necessary. It is tough enough already.
Wallis: By the way, all you Texans — one Senator that really REALLY needs to hear from you about the perfect storm of drought, fire, and inability to sell horses that you can’t keep is Kay Bailey Hutchison who has consistently supported slaughter bans. You need to make sure her phone lines and email networks are LIT UP with nothing else! Comment from me: When did KBH ever support slaughter bans?
Wallis: Same for Louisiana – and Sen. Mary Landrieu – she needs to hear from as many horse people as possible. Tell her about the SUFFERING that is happening BECAUSE OF lack of ability to sell horses. She doesn’t understand horses or the people who love and care for them every day. She needs to listen to HORSE PEOPLE not professional fundraisers who don’t own horses or spend any of their resources to help them. And, oh by the way, where is the HSUS/PETA folks…any of you been getting any assistance from them? I didn’t think so…
Wallis: Ok – since I’m on a rant, put Sen. Lindsey Graham, South Carolina, on that list! We know there are some good folks in your state who are doing everything they can to get a humane horse plant up and running. He needs to hear from you!
Wallis: And EVERYONE who has Senators who are supportive of and working for the horse industry like our Wyoming Senators Mike Enzi and John Barrasso – call them and ask them to reach out to all of their colleagues like Hutchison, Landrieu, and Graham to NOT BRING ANY AMENDMENTS that will only increase the completely unnecessary, wasteful and agonizing suffering of horses. Point out what is happening in the fire/drougth stricken Southwest, and the flood devastated Midwest. Talk about a triple whammy!!!
2nd Poster: Where is Ms. Money Bags Madeline Pickens with her billions. I am surprised she hasn’t coughed up a few $$$ for Texas.
3rd Poster: all i ask for from others who are reading this are prayers. And now since i know which senator in tx to contact you can bet i will be getting on that and all the others!!! It is sad that others make money off of someone else’s hardship, and it will only get worse with the weather, lack of food, and no slaughter plants!! What about the horses here and other areas who are going to need medical care for long periods and may still live dependent on medical intervention, or not be of value to the owners? The quine rescue homes were over populated before…..what now?!
Many horse owners have moved their horses to safety and helped neighbors and friends move their horses before moving themselves. Those are the “horse” people that Wallis never acknowledges. They are the horse people that comprise the horse industry, not the bottom of the barrel that sell out their horses for a quick buck and use a heartbreaking tragedy to further their ill conceived agenda.
The late John Hettinger said it best, “We have no desire to point a finger at anybody or hurt anybody, but the lowest common denominator cannot be allowed to prevail any longer. We must end the slaughter of horses.”
