Carol Walker, Director of Field Documentation for Wild Horse Freedom Federation, whose photographs and reports from Wyoming and the BLM’s Rock Springs holding facility have documented the Salt Wells wild horses, will be on
CNN tonight (7 p.m. Eastern Time) with Jane Velez-Mitchell.
Thank you to both Jane and Carol for getting out the word on the chilling story of the plight of the wild horses.
Carol’s photographs and reports can be seen on her website, Wild Hoofbeats, here and here.
IN THE HANDS OF KILL BUYERS! When horses are purchased at auction by buyers intending to kill them, they're hauled away in double- decker tractor trailers where they are beaten and often blinded with baseball bats to mollify them. After crossing the border into Mexico, the animals are stabbed on each side-an act to tenderize their meat-and immobilized. Workers, then saw the horses legs off, at the knee and hang them to bleed out-all while the horses are ALIVE! (This is an excerpt, from an article written by Missy Diaz, crediting Victoria Mc Cullough and Sen. Joe Abruzzo for bringing awareness of horse slaughter, to Florida. In 2010 Florida Legislation unanimously passed the Horse Protection Bill, making it a felony to slaughter horses for personal or commercial use.)
