“On 9/21/2007 the bloody, preditory Illinois horse slaughter plant, Cavel, was shut down as outlined by Vicki Tobin in the previous submission. It was such a moving moment that I sat down, on that day, and penned the following story which is now included in our book, Straight from the Horses Heart: A Spiritual Ride through Love, Loss and Hope. It brings me to tears to read the story, even today, when I think of the hundreds of thousands of horses that have been sent across our borders to suffer unimaginable terror and suffering since the closing of the U.S. plants. And on the other side of the bloody coin it incites in me great anger to see the likes of Sue Wallis and Dave Duquette flood the internet with lies, deceit and corruption in an effort only to make money from the flesh and blood of our equine companions. Please, help us keep our American horses alive and well.” ~ R.T.
Four years ago yesterday, the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in Illinois shut down Cavel, the hell hole in DeKalb, IL. Here’s a copy of the ruling: http://www.vickitobin.com/uploads/09.21.07_Ruling.pdf
“So the judgment is affirmed, the suit dismissed with prejudice, and the injunction that we granted pending appeal dissolved.”
