By now, you have all heard about the Neanderthal wingnut who decided to make a point by horrifying millions of people on You Tube.
In case you haven’t heard, this is what the Neanderthal did:
An employee of a horse slaughter plant planning to open in New Mexico, is seen casually walking a horse into camera range, pets it, calmly pulls out a pistol, says “To all you animal activists F*** You”, and shoots the horse in the head.
I wonder how he negotiates with his family?
Anyway, this was simply horrific and a real boon for the WHAT NOT TO DO – EVER coalition.
Now what could be the worst part – on so many levels - of this horrific act, besides being permanently scarring to most viewers and an all around terrible life choice – is that this awful act was totally legal.
Neanderthal wingnut could shoot his own horse or dog (wife?) or whatever… on his own property.
It isn’t animal cruelty.
It just is what it is.
WHAT WE CAN DO.
The power of numbers (numbers of people) is strong. We can create an uproar. We can kick and scream and be the squeaky wheel until someone gives in and makes a difference.
Here is a link to a local – to the wingnut – online newspaper which is taking a poll on whether the Neanderthal should be punished.
You can go here to take the poll (hopefully it is still up when you read this)
If the poll is no longer up when you get there, PLEASE contact them and tell the editor how you feel – calmly (Remember, it isn’t the editor or mail clerk who pulled the trigger). Please let their town know how it looks to the rest of the country as they support this type of behavior. Let them know how you feel about the slaughter plant. Tell them how there is no humane way to slaughter horses – yet. Tell them how frightening it would be to have this type of individual executing our horses.
SIGN THE PETITIONS! STRENGTH IN NUMBERS!
