Rep. “Slaughterhouse” Sue Wallis is Wielding Wild Horse Butcher’s Cleaver, AGAIN

Straight from the Horse's Heart

HOUSTON – (SFHH) Awww shucks, folks.  I was almost (just almost) feeling a tad bad for speaking the truth about ole “Slaughterhouse” Sue, the other day.  Dang it.
There was an ittsy-bittsy little part of me that tried to see the other side’s point of view and attempt to determine what they are so afraid of.  If they raise cattle or breed Quarter Horses they are by no means our enemies.  As I have said many times over, most of us “advocates” are Ag people ourselves.  Many have cattle besides just horses and then there are folks like us that take great pride in growing the best crop of grass that we can for our herd.  There’s nothing wrong with being a “grass” farmer as it’s color matches that of my tractor and my John Deere cap.  We are all brothers and sisters with ties to the land and all that is nature.  So what’s the rub?
Another little tiny section of my soul felt bad as I hold women, particularly mothers, in the highest regard.  The veryest mostleous important individual in my life is my wife and I would be one pissed off grass farmer and horse rescuer if someone would make her cry or hurt her feelings.  She might not be a mamma to any two legged critters but there is to a passel of four legged ones that think she is their mother and have no problem showing it.  So I felt a little bit of remorse, for about a nanosecond, a flash in time that was so short that even Einstein could not calibrate it.
Right out in the open, “Slaughterhouse” and her silly henchmen not only announce to the world their incompetence but they blatantly offer up documentation to prove that they have the intelligence of Paramecium.  (No Sue, that is not the type of cheese that you put on a Pizza but instead it is a microscopic, brainless, hairy, single celled blob-like creature that thinks “pond scum” is a gourmet meal…sound familiar?)
Inserted, below, is the latest and greatest “News Release” that these dolts could collectively manage to put together.  Again, I must warn you that the “GAG ALERT” is still in effect and that you better not have a mouth full of coffee when you read this or ole Sue is going to cause you to replace your keyboard and perhaps refinish your computer desk.  Buckle up that seat belt, again, because here we go, right down into the bowels of Hates itself:

We just sent this press release to major news outlets across the Nation… Radical animal rights groups, environmental extremists, and misguided horse advocates have been trying to flood the airwaves with blatant propaganda and alarmist rhetoric. We seek to provide some common sense and balance.

America’s Pro-Horse Coalition Supports BLM, Salazar Efforts To Rein In Feral Horse Population
CHEYENNE, WY–The United Organizations of the Horse (UOH) applauds the efforts of federal officials to control the overpopulation of wild horses on public lands, and urges the enactment of responsible policies for the management and disposition of excess horses. The UOH, a nationwide coalition working in the best interests of horses and horse owners, and for the rejuvenation of the equine industry, is the largest organization of its kind in the U.S. Its members and supporters are petitioning Congress to support the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in its mission to manage public lands, not supervise a “welfare state” for excess feral horses held captive and warehoused in private feedlots and holding facilities off of public lands at enormous taxpayer expense.
“The BLM’s primary directive is to manage the land, to establish and maintain a sustainable balance of resources on public lands, including wild horses, native wildlife, grazing, fisheries, forests, energy development, and recreation,” said Sue Wallis, UOH Executive Director. “It should not be using its taxpayer resources to support excess animals of any species.”
The BLM currently pays for the care of some 32,000 wild horses in short- and long-term holding facilities, at a taxpayer cost of $29 million in fiscal 2009-more than 70 percent of the agency’s total budget for the Wild Horse and Burro Program. Although the agency strives to place horses in the hands of qualified owners, the demand for adoptions has plummeted in the current economic downturn, and has never come close to the annual natural increase of the herds.
Left unchecked, feral horse herds will roughly double their population every four years. Although the BLM estimates the current free-roaming horse population at 37,000, recent evidence from the General Accounting Office proves that the herds have been under-counted. In addition, the BLM routinely gathers significantly more horses than expected during scheduled roundups at any of its 108 Herd Management Areas.
The UOH unwaveringly supports the presence of properly-managed wild horses on public lands. However, the unchecked growth of feral herds has severely upset the environmental balance on public, private and tribal lands. Paired with the mounting numbers of unwanted domestic horses, many turned out to fend for themselves and dying of starvation on public and tribal lands, equine overpopulation has reached crisis proportions in the U.S..
Besides removing the excess horses to reassert a proper balance on the ranges, the UOH advocates the BLM adhere to responsible management practices such as:
  • Holding wild horses in captivity for a maximum of 90 days. If they cannot be sold, adopted or otherwise permanently disposed of within that time they should be sold without restriction to the highest bidder. All revenue should be rolled back into the Wild Horse and Burro Program to better manage the wild herds and the resource base.
  • Restore humane and regulated equine processing facilities, to provide federal, state, and local agencies; tribal groups and the general public an option for humane disposal of unwanted excess horses, without needless taxpayer expense or needless suffering for horses otherwise likely to face starvation or abandonment.
The United Organizations of the Horse, a mutual benefit organization, is committed to the well-being and humane treatment of horses, and the viability of the equine industry in the United States of America. Its companion non-profit group, the United Horsemen’s Front, is a charitable and educational non-profit 501c3 organization.
