Happy Sunday, people! It’s time to shine the spotlight of disgust on another PSA. I think this week should be pretty easy for any regular reader here. She’s been needing a profile for quite a while and, to be honest, I just haven’t had enough interest to do it before now. However, it’s been a crazy week here in the shedrow so I chose a PSA that would be easy enough to write up. I’ll be disappointed if about 90% of you don’t get this one before the reveal. I may even revoke your anti cards. I’m sure you’re all busy on this last long weekend of summer, so let’s get down to business and learn about our PSA…
Besides being an easy one this week, she is also one of the louder ones. She knows everything about everything. Just ask her. It’s also quite amazing this PSA is able to sit down with so many other PSA’s parked up her butt all the time. Nope, it’s not Slaughterhouse Sue, but she may be just as gross. Our PSA is an admitted horse eater from time to time as well. If you haven’t guessed who it is already, let’s hear from her directly so you can all make up your own minds about our poster child this week.
“I feel for people like XXXX. We call them “sheeple”; it’s exactly the type they like and want. Ones who really have no clue about reality. Ones who will blindly follow. While those of us HERE prefer people with a brain of their own they can actually USE.”
– I think we’ve discussed the fact that most stupid people not only don’t realize they are stupid, they think they are smarter than everybody else. It’s quite amazing this PSA is able to dress herself in the morning.
“We originally adopted Chief in 2001; sold him in 2006 and thru some unfortunate
circumstances, he fell into some wrong hands. Subsequently, the man who bought him employed the use of another man to help haul him to the sale yard. I found out and tried to stop it but couldn’t. The night before the sale, the man who was going to haul him roped Chief, snubbed him to a tree and proceeded to beat on him with a pipe and board until he collapsed. Then he tied him on the ground and proceeded to kick him repeatedly in the head and stomp on his head. A kind soul came along that night and cut his ropes and got him to his feet. He was pretty beat up and sore and stiff. The next morning, the guy comes back to haul him and is mad that he’s loose; he planned on leaving him tied all night. So he ropes Chief again and runs the rope thru the trailer and proceeds to beat on him to get him in the trailer. I found out all this AFTER the fact. He got sold to a meat buyer; I promptly bought him back from the guy and brought him home, where he is recovered physically but not 100% trusting of humans. The man who beat him never faced charges.“
– Kind of a strange story for somebody who is as adamant about slaughter as this person. I wonder why she would feel a need to rescue a horse from slaughter considering she eats horses herself. It’s also one of these dramatic `save the day’ stories PSAs love to tell without any documentation of photographic evidence. This fantastical tale of rescue is even more ironic considering how `Pro’ this person presents herself and some of the other people and activities she supports.
“Horses are livestock. If you don’t want to send yours to slaughter, if you don’t want to *eat* yours, no one is going to force you to do so. The horses on the cover are stock horses. Rodeo stock. Contractor horses. You know, the kind that actually earn their keep, much like ranch horses. Horses have been eaten for centuries and will be eaten for centuries to come. I don’t particularly care for goat or sheep or rabbit but I certainly am not going to stop someone else from eating them.
And if you don’t think we have done our research, obviously you have not done *your* research. If you don’t like what this page is about, why are you here?”
– From her numerous posts all over the internet, I’m guessing this person thinks that ranch horses are the only ones that earn their keep. While I sure enough do have much respect and appreciation for a good ranch horse, I’d love to introduce her to a few horses I know so she can really have an idea about how horses earn their keep and never have the threat of slaughter or abuse hang over their head. There is no exaggerating when I say many racehorse people can look out their window at easily a million dollars worth of `earning’ their keep at any given time and that is documented. Sadly, it costs money to make money…..Care to guess how much money the two horses in the banner of this blog have contributed towards `earning their keep’? Neither one of them have ever seen a cow in their life.
“Horses are not pets, never have been pets, were never intended to be pets and never will be pets. Period. They are livestock.”
– The FDA disagrees!
“I’ve seen some horses that would just as soon take a person out as look at them. Had one we had to chicken feed or she was going to kill someone. I’ve seen wild horses leave injured or ill or old horses without a second look. They are ANIMALS, not humans.”
– BINGO!!!!! Almost without fail, every single loud and proud PSA eventually talks about the outlaw horse that had to be killed or it was going to kill somebody. Always without fail they are not responsible for said horse. Apparently, these types of horses are only born on PSA lands and end up this way just because they are bad seeds. They are nearly as mythical as the unicorns they like to talk about so much.
“I like the aspect of the triage system they will use to restore the equine industry. So many think UH is *only* about slaughter, so many think UH wants to do away with rescues (how CRAZY!) and kill all the wild horses (NEVER was on the agenda) and other such crazy ideas. I support UH because they are for range management, they support LEGITIMATE rescues, they back HUMANE processing, they help with the stolen horse foundations, they support gelding and vaccination and owner education programs. There is MUCH more to UH than what is the perception and THAT is what I support.”
– In PSA speak `legitimate’ rescues means slaughter supporting rescues. It’s quite alarming how many of these people can’t see through the UH’s proposal. They’re going to get you to DONATE your horse so they can profit from slaughtering it. I’m also beyond sick and tired of reading about `humane’ processing. It’s never going to happen. However, this PSA’s statement is even more telling when you read our next quote from her….
“We are in the process of starting a rescue for domestic pets and livestock, and working towards getting incorporated and getting a 501c3 status. We will be doing fund raisers of all sorts and taking in donations from people to get the ball rolling … it’s not cheap to file for non-profit status!
Our first project is to help the local feral cat population. In conjunction with the XXXXX Spay & Neuter clinic and with Snip House in XXXXXX, we will be taking many cats over to be spayed and neutered. Our local Vet clinic will help with euthanasia for cats with debilitating injuries and illnesses. “
– To be fair, I do not think this rescue ever actually happened. The website for this PSA has not been updated for years, but it’s interesting to know such a slaughterphile was trying to get non-profit status as a rescue and admits to eating horses. That’s not illegal but there is just something very wrong with that to me.
“I hate the label “pro-slaughter”; it sounds like I’m some Manson follower that can’t wait to kill something and get bloody! LOL! I prefer to say I am not anti-slaughter. :)”
– Don’t y’all just love how they like to find softer words to make them feel better about what they are promoting. Yes, you ARE pro-slaughter and yes, it IS called slaughter and not humane processing, harvesting or whatever other bullshit term you dream up to ram it down the public’s throat. Say it with me one more time…..`SLAUGHTER’. If the forehead swastika fits…..
“A TRUE horse-person doesn’t want to see a horse suffer. Right now, horses are being turned loose in the wild to fend for themselves, where they usually end up dead, horses are being left at auction yards or in people’s fields or trailers, horses are being starved because people can’t afford feed and no one wants the horse. So the ones that DO end up at an auction and aren’t wanted and subjected to a long trailer ride (sometimes for days) to an unknown, and often unkind, ending. We want it back HERE where it can be regulated, the trailer rides are shorter, the horses are handled with the humanity and the dignity and the respect they deserve.”
– Ya know, a trailer ride from Idaho to Missouri is a lot longer than a ride from Idaho to Canada. Since there were only three slaughter facilities up and running at the time inspections were pulled, and they were all in a fairly close radius, this whole `long trailer’ ride argument is kinda stupid. Unless they are going to specifically breed for slaughter, I can’t see them getting one in every state or even more than one or two states. Having read about what went on in those last few plants, `humanity’, `dignity’ and `respect’ never factored into the carnage. Besides the proposed facilities are going to be run by the same people that are happily torturing horses in Canada and Mexico already. Doubtful that the US is all of a sudden going to be the gold standard of humane slaughter considering how crappy the slaughter of other animals is currently being handled and Big Ag’s distaste for humane livestock handling.
“And my personal, spiritual belief, very much align with the Natives of this country, abhor “waste” and feel it’s disrespectful to fill a horse full of poison (the euthanasia shot) and leave it to rot in the ground and to poison the earth. Once an animal is dead, it is a sin, in my mind and beliefs, to waste any parts that can be used. Think “Circle of Life”.”
– I hope that this wannabe Pocahontas realizes that the Native Americans were actually not big horse meat eaters. They revered their horses and for them, having horses were a measure of wealth and many still do. I’m sure they did eat some horses when the white men wiped out their buffalo herds, but the fact is that Natives did not view horses as a primary food source. Because my own family has Native Americans in it, I can safely say that eating horses is not a cultural thing nor do they have the slightest issue with euthanasia these days. Those family members would be card-carrying Natives that hold a lot of status within their bands. Given how our PSA feels, I wonder what she does with her dogs and cats when their number is up….
“I am proud to be part of Sue’s movement and proud of Sue for all she has done! She is an exceptional woman”
– The force is strong in this PSA
I could go on and on with the quotes from this PSA, but most of them would make her a dead give away. She was one of the ones that was the most pissed about last week’s feature and has made a few veiled threats towards this blog. However, I have used her exact words and publicly posted pictures, so she can cry to WordPress or threaten to show up on my doorstep all she wants. If you think you know now, make a guess because the next things I’m going to tell you are going to seal the deal. She is very much into the abusive rodeo culture. No, I’m not talking about bull riding or even traditional broncs. She’s a buckaroo fanatic and basically wets her panties over any asshat in chinks with a handlebar moustache. If I had to do an armchair analysis of the situation, she derives a certain pleasure from watching people handling livestock roughly. In fact she positively drools over anybody that dominates and rough handles their horses or livestock. Do you know who our guest star is yet? One last chance to guess because it is time to meet our Sunday PSA…….Say a big `howdy’ to our PSA of the week……
In other news, the EU has had another bad test for BUTE in horse meat. I believe this one originated from the UK, but the fact remains that they are now being found with much more frequency and it’s only going to mean there will be no movement on the passport and ID system they have mandated for next year. Read it and weep PSAs….(https://webgate.ec.europa.eu/rasff-window/portal/index.cfm?event=notificationDetail&NOTIF_REFERENCE=2012.1215) How many does that make? Something like four or five bad tests on horse meat in the last six weeks? Oh well, I guess we can always pawn all this toxicity off on the Asian market like the PSAs keep telling us they will….
