Mixed message from Wyoming tourism

Wyoming began running this ad for tourism back in march of 2011 as near as I can tell.  Obviously, the Wyoming board of tourism is either blissfully unaware of the ongoing activities of  “Slaughterhouse Sue” Wallis, a Wyoming state representative who has a predilection for consuming horse-flesh, or maybe just hopes that you, the tourist, are not aware.

Using the imagery of our wild horse icons, Wyoming tourism encourages you to visit Wyoming and roam free! Kind of like the wild horses are meant to.  I find it strange and somewhat sick that the state of Wyoming would use these icons to attempt entice visitors to the state, while at the same time entertaining ideas on how to eradicate them and possibly put them on your table.

As this video was shot with the camera’s close in, we are not able to determine just why the horses became agitated enough to charge the fence and take off running at full speed away from the pen where they were being held.

Was  “Slaughterhouse Sue” approaching with a fork in one hand and a napkin in the other?  Wallis, who back in November 2011 was condoning the posting of pictures of a young woman who had killed her horse and then crawled inside it for a photo op was documented by RT Fitch at Straight from the Horse’s Heart:

Wallis Lights Up over Pics of Nude Woman Inside Dead Horse

(Quote from Slaughterhouse Sue)

“People humanely kill an old horse, butcher it to use the good meat, and decide to have some fun with it, and take pictures.” continues this sack of trash.”

Was the BLM cranking up its horse harvesting machine in an attempt to obliterate yet another herd?

Was there another “professional” helicopter hitman attempting to land his machine on a horse’s back just for fun?

The fact is, we have no idea what made them bolt and run.  But the imagery is clear and so is the message.  These animals are meant to roam free and that means free from the prospect of harassment and being terrorized as the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) continues its deadly eradication campaign.

They should also be free of the “Slaughterhouse Sue’s” of the world whose interest is not healthy and enduring herds, but simply “what’s for dinner?”

I find it to be an ironic and sick message put out by Wyoming tourism:

Come to Wyoming and watch as we terrorize, capture and send to slaughter hundreds of these national icons!  Save this video, by the time we are done…..there won’t be one left!

The only thing Republicans and Democrats can agree on! Lets eat the horses!

Horse slaughter plants are legal again in the United States. Restrictions on horse meat processing for human consumption have been lifted.  courtesy of Google Images

In a bipartisan effort, the House of Representatives and the United States Senate approved the Conference Committee report on spending bill H2112, which among other things, funds the United States Department of Agriculture.  On November 18th, as the country was celebrating Thanksgiving, President Obama signed a law, allowing Americans to kill and eat horses. Essentially, one turkey was pardoned in the presence of worldwide media while in the shadows, buried under pages of fiscal regulation, millions of horses were sentenced to death.

Horse slaughter has been prohibited in the United States as funding for inspections of horses in transit and at slaughter houses was non-existent. This worked because the horse meat cannot be sold for human consumption without such inspections. The House version of the bill retained the de-funding language and the Senate version did not. The conference committee charged with reconciling the two opted to not include it. The result is that it is now legal to slaughter horses for humans to eat.

Notwithstanding that 70% of Americans oppose horse slaughter, that President Obama made a campaign promise to permanently ban horse slaughter and exports of horses for human consumption (horses can be sent to Mexico and Canada), that documentation of animal cruelty, slaughterhouse stench, fluid runoff and negative community impact exists, it is taxpayers that will bear the costs!

Wyoming state representative Sue Wallis and her pro-slaughter group estimate that between 120,000 and 200,000 horses will be killed for human consumption per year and that Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Georgia and Missouri, are considering opening slaughter plants.

During these trying times, is the only thing that Democrats and Republicans can agree on is that Americans need to eat horses?

Slaughterhouse” Sue Wallis is a Stranger to the Truth

Sue Wallis recently released talking points for supporters to use with their legislators. Talking points should be concise but more importantly, accurate. Apparently, Sue Wallis did not get the memo on the latter. Not only are they inaccurate but she can’t keep her lies straight, particularly when it comes to numbers. It is not wise to disprove your own statements. She not only shoots herself in the foot but continues reloading and shooting over and over again.

Take special note that once again, the issue of food safety is completely ignored. Feel free to share this in your conversations with legislators! My apologies for a plain document in comparison to the slick PDF from Wallis. I thought content was more important than esthetics.

Today, more than 300,000 horses in America have no where to go, living out the last of their days to die painful death of starvation and thirst.

There are no statistics to substantiate this outrageous claim. And even if it were true, less than 115,000 horses are slaughtered each year so there would still be almost 200,000 horses that “have nowhere to go”. The foreign meat business only buys the number of horses needed to fill the demand, not the number of available horses. This point is worthless and a clear message that horse slaughter will not solve any problems that may exist. Slaughter is for food production and not the place to send horses “that have nowhere to go”.
Note to self Sue, don’t refute your own arguments in the same statement.

The Government Accounting Office (GAO) report of June 2011 indicates that any U.S. appropriation riders and bills that seek to eliminate humane horse processing in the U.S. offer ZERO solutions.

Horse slaughter hasn’t provided any solutions and is confirmed with your first talking point. So you now have two talking points that say nothing and offer nothing. The GAO report also recommended banning horse slaughter. More

New Year’s Day Horse Eater Attack Backfires

“It’s a New Year and the Gloves are OFF!”

Made Famous by “Slaughterhouse” Sue Wallis and Dave “Doink” Duquette

True to form and working along their “assbackward” philosophy “Slaughterhouse” Sue Wallis and Dave “Doink” Duquette’s trumped up Native American complaint on Madeleine Pickens Rose Parade float totally blew up in their faces with the net result of garnering the Wild Mustang float an easy 10 times the publicity that it would have received if they simply would have stayed beneath that slimy rock that they live under.

John Holland eloquently portrayed their ability to not only shoot themselves in the foot in his recent editorial but they actually manage to line themselves up against a wall and blow each other’s heads off with a firing squad, the stupidity displayed is stunning. More

Pay No Attention to the Elephants: Who is the REAL Guest of Honor at the Summit of the Horse?

Guest Op-Ed by Vicki Tobin ~ Vice President of the Equine Welfare Alliance

Who is the REAL Guest of Honor at the Summit of the Horse?

When obvious truth is being ignored, it is frequently referred to as the elephant in the room. As the slaughter issue reaches the boiling point, as expected, the elephants in the room are waiting to be recognized.

Wallis/Duquette have a very, very large guest at their “Slaughterfest”

The upcoming “Summit of the Horse” is an exemplary example of elephants in the room. A group of people are assembling to “take the reins back” and provide solutions. That is truly mission impossible because they would have to acknowledge that they are the cause.

They would have to acknowledge that to control the horse population, it must be done at the source; not on the back-end. If slaughter controlled the population, we wouldn’t still be discussing it after decades of slaughter.

The disinformation that will be rehashed at the “Summit” has been disproven tenfold but they charge forward repeating their mantra of illogical talking points. The most illogical claim is that the horse industry tanked because the US horse slaughter plants closed. It makes a good sound bite but there is the pesky little fact that slaughter never ended – a minor detail that is needed for the closures to have an impact.

They call the wild horses “feral” and the slaughter horses “unwanted” to denigrate them. They complain about the cost of wild horses in holding but completely ignore the hundreds of millions of dollars shelled out by taxpayers to subsidize privately owned livestock on public lands. More

Slaughterhouse Sue’s Big Fat ‘F”arce: Wyoming faces attack of the horse eaters

Although Wyoming has at least one ethics law concerning its legislators, nobody seems to have gotten around to enforcing that pesky thing. Sue Wallis (“Slaughterhouse Sue”) hasn’t even bothered with a revolving door – she has just parked her butt in two different chairs at the same time – as a Wyoming State Representative (R) and also as the Executive Director of a trade/lobbying “mutual benefit corporation” called United Organizations of the Horse (UOH). UOH states it is concerned with “excess” and “unwanted horses” and claims that’s the reason it’s pushing so hard to reinstate horse slaughterhouses in the United States.
What they’re really pushing for is using horse meat for food. The UOH has an “Equine Assurance Program” which is supposedly about horse meat food safety.
A big problem with UOH’s “excess” and “unwanted” horse drivel is that UOH has taken financial contributions from the Biotechnology Industry Organization (www.bio.org). This is the huge, big bucks, powerful lobbying arm of animal cloning companies including ViaGen (which is actively cloning horses – genetic engineering companies including Monsanto, and pharmaceutical and chemical companies.

The Indian Lakes Road/Broken Arrow BLM holding facility where the BLM is holding our wild horses in Nevada has a sign hanging at the entrance:

Troy Adams Broken Arrow USA. 

The link to the website for Broken Arrow USA is no longer active. The Broken Arrow Ranch of Lincoln, CA was featured on animal cloning company Bovance’s website .

The sale of Broken Arrow Ranch’s cattle clone was listed at the Denim and Diamonds Sale and the last address in the middle column is: Broken Arrow Angus Ranch, Troy Adams, 345 Karchner Rd,, Lincoln, CA. 95648, phone (916) 645-1924 Pharmaceutical company Geron (www.geron.com) (TX. ViaGen and Trans Ova Genetics (of Sioux Center, Iowa) own Bovance, the animal cloning company (which featured Broken Arrow). 

Most, if not all, of Geron’s board of directors each sit on the boards of several other pharmaceutical companies. ViaGen is very actively cloning horses:
