Take Me Away - The best video clips are here
Besides the fact that these horses were about to meet a cruel and horrific death, they stood in a crowded pen where they could not move or lie down, standing on concrete with very little food and water for 12 days.
My questions are: Where were the animal patrol officers? Where was the SPCA? Where was the USDA who is supposed to be overseeing the care of our horses. Why does no one care? Why aren't they doing their jobs? Do we allow this type of cruelty and abuse in the United States?
I thought the United States was above this type of behavior, but evidently not. What makes this worse is, where are all the TV News crews? I have not seen one thing about this abhorrent behavior on any news station. I've written to Keith Olbermann and others, but not one word nor one response.
Can't anyone hear the anguished screams of these horses? Has America become numb and uncaring? I don't think the latter is true, but I do know that our TV stations should be talking about this and they are not. I wonder why.
