Punish People Who Allegedly Sold Horses for Slaughter

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Target: Loretta E. Lynch, Attorney General of the United States

Goal: Prosecute people who were allegedly involved in the selling of horses to slaughterhouses.

Almost 2,000 protected mustang horses may have been sold to slaughterhouses over a year’s time span. We need to take action to better ensure horses are not subject to inhumane treatment in the future.

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) sold almost 2,000 of these horses to a rancher named Tom Davis. Even though the horses were sold under the condition that they could not be used for slaughter, it is alleged that precautions were not taken to prevent this. In fact, when the issue was investigated, Davis allegedly admitted that a majority of the horses were sold to slaughterhouses. It is also alleged that the BLM sold horses to Davis even though it was said by many that he had sold horses for slaughter in the past and despite evidence that revealed Davis had previously tried to open his own slaughterhouse.

Such alleged tragedies could have been possibly avoided if the BLM had limited the sale of their horses and if they had also not sold horses to Davis without more thoroughly checking into his background. Unfortunately, though precautions have been taken to try and ensure this does not happen again, nobody is currently being charged for any criminal actions.

Sign this petition and demand that anyone who sold these horses knowing that they would likely be slaughtered be legally sentenced. No horse should ever be abused in this manner.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Attorney General Lynch,

According to an investigative report, almost 2,000 mustang horses were sold to slaughterhouses. It is important that anyone who was involved in such a crime be legally punished in order to better ensure that horses will remain safer in the future.

The horses were originally sold to Tom Davis, a rancher who allegedly is known for selling horses to slaughterhouses. Davis even reportedly admitted to selling horses for slaughter when the case was investigated. Just as bad, it is likely that the Bureau of Land Management knew that Davis may have sold horses for this purposes, as he had also supposedly been caught trying to open up a horse slaughterhouse in Colorado.

Although precautions have been taken to better ensure that this does not happen in the future, nobody in this current case is being held legally responsible. I therefore urge you to suggest that anyone who is found to have played a part in this horrible crime be prosecuted. Horses do not deserve to be treated in this horrendous manner.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. OMG…..ALL OF THIS IS SUCH A TRAVESTY. ALL THOSE INVOLVED SHOULD BE SEVERELY PUNISHED INCLUDING THOSE WORKING FOR THE BLM. THEY SHOULD BE FIRED.OUR TAXES PAY THEIR SALARIES TO PROTECT AND SAVE THESE HORSES NOT TO GET THEM SLAUGHTERED AND THE MONSTER WHO SELLS THEM TO THE SLAUGHTER HOUSES IS MADE RICH AT THE HORSES AND THE TAX PAYERS EXPENSE. THESE HORSES BELONG TO THE AMERICAN PUBLIC AND THEY DIDN’T DESERVE TO DIE IN SUCH A HORRIFIC WAY. THE SLIME BALL MONSTER MADE LOTS OF MONEY OFF THEIR SUFFERING AND HE SHOULD BE PUNISHED. WHO IS WATCHING THE CHICKEN HOUSE THERE AT THE BLM??? THIS SHOULD BE FRAUD AND HAVE A VERY EXTREME PUNISHMENT TO GO WITH THAT!

  2. shame on the b.l.m now i hope they all go to prison now.justice for these great american horses now.

  3. Dawn Butcher says:

    The BLM is the most corrupt government agency. The fact that we continue to keep native animals off of federal lands due to ranchers demands is ridiculous.

  4. ATTORNEY LYNCH, the BLM NEEDS A THOROUGH INVESTIGATION! The news is fraught with trucks or semi’s taking BLM horses to Mexico! Now I read about abortions on mares. Really! The mares might as well be euthanized rather than putting them through the pain, infection, how barbaric. What intelligence is behind these decisions? Taxpayers are angry.

  5. CAN YOU RESPOND TO THE LAS VEGAS BLM MASSACRE?
