Target: Mindy Patterson, President of the Cavalry Group
Goal: Stop the cruel agenda of anti-animal rights organization The Cavalry Group
The Cavalry Group is an anti-animal rights organization based in St. Louis, Missouri. The group’s goal is to prevent any kind of legislation that protects animals from cruelty and inhumane treatment. It collaborates with the worst sorts of corporations and special interest groups to try and dismantle any kind of initiative that might threaten profits by forcing corporations to comply with basic standards of animal welfare.
The Cavalry Group’s past work includes opposing a law that sought to crack down on puppy mills in Missouri and a referendum in North Dakota which would have made it a felony to intentionally or maliciously harm dogs, cats, and horses. The group’s outrageous championship of cruelty to animals must be addressed. We should condemn The Cavalry Group for its advocacy of animal cruelty.
The horse carriage drivers association in New York City has recently partnered with The Cavalry Group to try and prevent Mayor de Blasio from banning the industry. Animal rights groups have spent years attempting to have the practice ended because of the cruel conditions that horses are forced to endure. Now on the verge of success, animal rights activists must overcome legal action spearheaded by the Cavalry Group.
In order to defend its advocacy of cruel and inhumane treatment of animals, The Cavalry Group uses the ridiculous argument that it is protecting the Constitution. It is building a network of lawyers throughout the United States with the purpose of offering legal defense to those who have abused, or seek to abuse animals. It argues that animals are private property and that the owner has the right to treat the animal any way that they choose. This is a vicious perspective that has no place in our society. We must condemn The Cavalry Group for its agenda of cruelty to animals.
Dear Mindy Patterson, President of the Cavalry Group:
The Cavalry Group is a cruel organization that champions the inhumane treatment of animals. It is an organization that has no place in a civilized society. The viewpoints of The Cavalry group and of the special interest groups which it represents are immoral and out of step with the beliefs of most people.
The existence of an organization such as The Cavalry Group, which opposes even the most basic standards of animal welfare, is unfortunate. I encourage you and your organization to stop your agenda of cruelty to animals.
