Well, folks, those Slaughter Summit leaders just can’t stop recruiting more horse haters and slaughter lovers to join them, to sponsor their blood fest in Vegas next week. See the latest list below, taken directly from the Slaughter Summit web site, and note a couple of interesting new sponsors:
RAIN DANCER VIDEOS – hmmm, one has to wonder if perhaps this is the video consultant who will be gifted with the contract to install 24/7 live video cams at Wallis’s dream horse slaughter-house. Perhaps Rain Dancer is more of a “participant” than the public realizes…. you just never know.
MANTLE RANCHES – another BLM contractor joining in to sing the praises of slaughtering America’s horses. This one is a “wild horse gentler” and is likely one of the “cowboys” who think the only good Wild Horse is a “gentled” one under a saddle and would like to see the rest slaughtered and off public lands so the ranchers can fill it completely with cattle.
Oh, and just for good measure to keep that exploding US horse population under control, Mantle also appears to be a AQHA breeder. After all, the frenzied breeding promotional efforts of the registry that pushes to “achieve record numbers” such as 140,000 AQHA foals born annually in America versus a total of perhaps only 20,000 wild mustangs left on the range is something Mantel avidly supports via his promotion of AQHA horses. Don’t ya know those breeders have to cull out all those “garbage” AQHA foals born too, send ’em off to slaughter so they can “recoup” their expenses, even after they’ve been given toxic drugs banned for food animals due to carcinogenic properties. Who cares if the little foals or the discarded yearlings and 2 to 3 year olds are living feeling beings? They turned out to be the wrong color or not perfect enough to get a blue ribbon in some yahoo cowboy contest in a ring or they stupidly got themselves hurt in the “humane” training done before they even reached adulthood. Who cares if the people who’ll eat them get cancer?
Sure is funny how this is all tied up together with a big bow, eh? BLM and their contractors, ranchers, breed registries like AQHA and ApHC, kill buyers and auction houses, trophy hunters and so-called range aficionados who’d like to see only trophy animals on the range for their selfish hunting desires – all a motley crew of despicable characters with little to no compassion for animals as they trumpet their “caring” for horses in an event designed to elevate and promote horse slaughter as an answer for horse population problems they themselves create. Amazing….
Very interesting article here too that talks about how some of the sponsors are requesting their names be removed or in some cases claiming they were never sponsors but that they were “elevated” to that position by desperate Summit organizers. Here’s a quote from the article:
Even the renowned slaughter plant designer, Temple Grandin, has informed Equine Welfare Alliance that she has instructed Ms. Wallis to stop using her name.
In an interview with Horseback Magazine, Dr. Grandin said “They kind of were misrepresenting my involvement.”
Wow, so Sponsors and Speakers are not all hunky dory with the idea of having their names attached to the rabid promotional efforts of the Slaughter Queen and King. Who would have dreamed it? Well, we are going to keep a record right here on this blog of all the names who must have at onetime told old Queenie that they backed her bloody killing plant plans in order to be honored as Slaughter Summit supporters. You will always be able to come see the names of those who hate horses and who want to see them slaughtered and eaten by visiting this blog and looking through the archives. We hope you will, especially when you are considering a purchase of any kind in order to avoid patronizing these blights on mankind.
