Would we want our children or grandchildren to see how America's horses are treated by our public agencies?

Alliance of Wild Horse Advocates'



Issue: Export of "pets" and working horses for slaughter for human consumption


Situation Report Update

In January obsessive pro-slaughter advocate Sue Wallis and her "United Organizations of the Horse" published a request for her supporters to boycott celebrities and their films, music, etc., who supported animal issues. This call was followed up with a list of animal issue supporters.

The irony in all of this is that Ms. Wallis not only acknowledged the broad base of support by celebrities for animal issues, but she saved us a huge amount of time researching who our allies actually were. As Ms. Wallis indicated in her bulletin, what she presented was only a partial list.

Ms. Wallis cemented our "squirrel loose among the nuts" theory by including dead people on her black list, most notably the late Bea Arthur. Apparently if you are really dead serious about bringing back horse slaughter, you boycott the dead.

Here are the celebs listed in Ms. Wallis' bulletin. (Please note that we are not claiming that the headings and listings all make sense.)
