Breeders and owners have gone to prison for this type of animal cruelty. Others seem to avoid accountability. Like so many named animal charities, animals are just cash cows for their extravagances. We see it happen with mustangs, dogs, and wildlife. Some of the largest non profit (ahem) animal charities are con artists.
The difference here is this woman appeared a dedicated insider (seen that MO before too). You'd have thought she would have worked at least to get the one horse to his new home in good shape--he wasn't a rescue, he was a transport. What stable neglects its boarders and stays in business?
She isn't a non profit because they are for profit. For profit means everything is done to keep overhead low. Profit high. Animal cruelty and neglect are Class A felonies. https://news.vice.com/article/the-fbi- ... s-a-felony
And the board of directors are complicit.
This woman and her "team" appear to be crafty con artists given her established relationship with kill buyers. Like the hauler, Tom Davis from Colorado that US tax payers paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to haul (donated) mustangs to safety, instead hauled them to Mexico for slaughter courtesy of Int. Secretary Zinke (they are friends). The goal always was to transfer public funds (and lands and everything else) to his cronies with the mustangs being just another livestock haul. https://www.propublica.org/article/miss ... m-the-govt
Souper Spectacular is lucky he didn't end up in this woman's ditch. And I am disappointed that the Souper stable hasn't stepped up to help with his recovery costs--at least that I've read. If someone knows differently, please share that story. Spectacular and Hannah are a counterpart to Cozmic One and Isabella as ambassadors for OTTB. Zenyatta still has broad public appeal and support.
