Round One Begins!horse
  
 

Here is reason one of why our battle has been so difficult, read on;

 

The only child of the late Rexford Davis, founder of the country' s largest, privately held petroleum company,  McCullough says she has no idea of her net worth as Chesapeake Petroleum's heir and reigning board chair, nor does she care.

  

Hers is a life of privilege, but McCullough doesn't take it for granted. Money can make you, break you or give you some vision, she says, and for her, it's the latter. For her, it has helped fuel a passion for saving the animals that have given her such joy, and purpose.
  
So while at first reading this sounds really good, like we can get behind this. But all it takes is one more paragraph of this article  and you will see another uninformed  billionaire.
  
Let's take for example Feral Tribal Horses, now this excludes the 9-10 million domestic horses, let's just talk about the Tribal horses. If this billionaire really wanted to help out and put her money to good use she would be able to help much more than 1,800 horses while also helping the thousands of deer, elk, moose and antelope affected by these feral tribal horses, and lets not forget the human cost of all this. All she would have to do is give the Tribes about a half a billion a year to feed and manage the horses that they have no way to control.
  
The Tribes are suffering with NO bailout money coming like the BLM has. Some Reservations have turned into wastelands with horses now starving to death. While Senator Mary Landrieu from Louisiana begs for Federal money to eradicate the feral hogs that are a problem in her state she is pushing for the SAFE act, which we call the Starve America's Feral Equines act which will make it impossible for the Tribes to deal with their situation.
  
The Humane Society of the US is so afraid the general public will find out what they have done to the Tribes and Tribal lands that now they have found a "Chief", or should I say paid a tribal member to call himself a Chief to try to show support for their agenda from the Tribes. When the reality is all Land/horse based tribes support bringing domestic slaughter back.

    

Again I pose this question to those who oppose horse processing, what is your solution to the unwanted horse crisis? Those who oppose horse processing have had six years since the original plant closure to come up with solutions. The suffering of horses has only intensified during that time. 

 

Soon we will be like Australia and this is the wall we will be up against if we don't come together and fight back against the uninformed. Read about their problem Here.

Yours truly,
