As you may know from reading our recent newsletter detailing our extensive European Campaign, Animals' Angels was part of an expose on horse slaughter televised on Swiss t.v. this past month. We knew it was a huge story as it had summarized a year's worth of our investigations and provided direct proof exposing the realities of horse slaughter - however, we didn't realize the enormous impact it would have worldwide! Immediately after the expose aired, the report was picked up by numerous other news and media outlets.
There have been many reports lately about questionable actions of the Bureau of Land Management and its contractors, such as selling horses out of long term holding to known kill buyers Joe Simon and Musick Livestock ("Wild Horses Sold to Killbuyer") or allowing individuals such as Tom Davis to purchase 1700 horses without questioning where all these horses would end up. ("Wild Horses to Slaughter").
In a windfall of information, Animals' Angels recently received over a thousand pages of documentation confirming violations and horrific treatment of horses transported to the Cavel slaughter plant in DeKalb, IL. Almost 1,100 photographs were provided along with written documentation describing the extent of violations, injuries, and penalties. The information was provided after submitting a Freedom of Information Act request to the USDA on July 28, 2012.
