Statement From AAHS
A livestock trailer carrying 38 horses allegedly destined for slaughter overturned on Monday, January 16, 2012 in Fairview, Tennessee after being loaded from Three Angels Farms in Lebanon. State Patrol officers believe the driver may have fallen asleep at the wheel shortly after beginning the trip to a farm in Texas.The driver, Mance Frank Reed, experienced minor harm, while two horses suffered serious injuries and three were killed from the crash. Survivors are at a livestock barn in Dickson.
In response to this horrific incident, American’s Against Horse Slaughter (AAHS) www.AmericansAgainstHorseSlaughter.com, is issuing a statement that it will remain committed to being the voice for our American horses, by ensuring their safety and welfare through educating the public and working to pass legislation, the American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act, H.R.2966 and S.1176. AAHS will work toward making certain safe and humane transporting conditions and policies are followed, in addition to prohibiting their slaughter and transport to slaughter for human consumption.
