R.T. Fitch and I are dedicating this show to honor wild horse & burro warrior Garnet Pasquale, and to talk about her favorite subject, the Spring Mountain Alliance. If you knew Garnet and have a memory to share, please call in during the second hour of the show. (Please don’t call in with questions or about other subjects tonight. This is a tribute to Garnet.)
Call in # 917-388-4520
The shows will be archived, so you can listen anytime.
Garnet Pasquale was fiery, feisty and fierce about saving wild horses & burros from extinction. She spent countless hours working on their behalf, especially the wild horses near Las Vegas, NV, with the Spring Mountain Alliance. Garnet was a loyal friend to the wild horses & burros, and a great friend to many advocates who were lucky enough to know her. With much love, this show is dedicated to our dear friend, Garnet.
In Loving Memory of Garnet Pasquale
This radio show is co-hosted by Debbie Coffey, Director of Wild Horse Affairs at Wild Horse Freedom Federation and Marti Oakley, PPJ Gazette. This series of radio shows will feature upcoming guests including Elizabeth Lovegrove of Wild Horses Kimberly in Australia, who will talk about the recent aerial culling of 7,000 brumbies (Australia’s “feral”/wild horses).
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.)
