Wow. People actually sit around thinking up crap like this - and then inflict their weird-ass cruelty fetish on living beings (EXPENSIVE living beings, no less) for... um, fun. Seriously, folks - do we even belong to the same SPECIES as people who would stage or attend something like this?
And anyone who makes a remark about defending the "freedom" to commit such atrocities is defriended. I mean it.
Seriously - Stefani Olsen, Sandra Buskirk, Lupa Bi, Treesong , Kraig Blackwelder, Zen Klimp...
...@Ari Gee, Francesca Gentille, John Mariotti, Smooch Es, Kelly Klimp, Kelly Berger...
...Steve Bunche, Sj Tucker, Lori Grace, Courtney Hahn, Michelle Lunicke, Dana Alvara, and anyone else - shall we help spread the word and stomp this... this... man, I don't even have WORDS for this... off the face of the Earth? Thanks.
This is real??? (builds homemade rocketship and flies to the planet Gzzrblfrnkx, never looks back)
Normally, I don't do the "OMG, SIGN THIS PETITION!" thing. For this, though, I'll make an exception.
And yes - sadly, it IS real.
Also, Nina Covington, Cathi A Jones Buchanan, Mark Jackson, Michael Schatz, Coyote Ward, Brenna Beattie - let's kill this with fire.
Trip a horse. You are targeting the most vulnerable part of the animal and likely to have an injury. Anyone who knows horses knows the danger of a break-down, for example in racing. The only option is euthanasia most of the time where leg injuries are concerned. If you watch films of this practice you can see the horses are truly terrified. I can't believe the mentality of people who call this entertainment or sport. GET INVOLVED!
It is sad to see how sick come people have become. Cruelty to animals and abuse to women and children should be punishable by comparable torture. Let those who give feel how bad it is to receive. The plot line of the Planet of the Apes movie series apparently is not too far from the truth.
Its hard to believe people who can't FEEL this kind of think. An inability to empathize
Rick Mueller Rod Serling had a point to make when he wrote the screenplay for the original Planet of the Apes film. I researched him a while back, and he was well known for doing this in his stories ... including making cinematic comentaries on such things as race in the 1950's when it was taboo. Serling died in 1975 but left behind some really great work which has relevance even today. And you're right about the Planet of the Apes ... very true.
I received an email from Senator Manendo that this opposition came in with 1400 signatures against SB72. Right off the bat 1400 signatures for cruelty and they are flooding the legislative opinion poll. There is only ONE sure committee vote for SB72. All Nevadians need to contact their representatives and demands SB72 pass. PLEASE let everybody know that this bill is going down unless we demand it pass.
Senator Manendo is our only vote SB72.
Please email the committee members and tell them to PASS SB72.

Susan Noble Thank you for the informations I will write the committee members to PASS SB72..
It is raw passion for our cause that keeps us fighting for the rights of animals [...] - a passion born from a broken and bleeding heart. A passion that makes it possible for us to become the "voice" of those who would otherwise never be heard. A passion that enables us to "feel" at a deeper level - a level which unites our pain with the pain of millions of animals who are suffering.

A passion that enables us to "feel" at a deeper level - a level which unites our pain with the pain of millions of animals who are suffering. It is this unity that allows our hearts to reside in a place that is sad yet insightful; dark but truthful. Our inspiration is conceived from feeling pain. Our actions born from consuming this pain. Our only relief is our constant plea to the world to end the pain and suffering needlessly inflicted on our non-human friends. Friends who silently beg our heart and soul every minute of every day.
Beautifully said! s
Terri...this is so wonderfully said...is this your quote or did you come across it somewhere? I'd love to use this...thank you!!!
This is unbelievable! My first impression was, you´re friggin´ kidding me... this is like a site to pull a little parody on all of us bleeding hearts, taking up for innocent animals.... to read... the SENATOR is starting a movement! UNREAL! HUMAN BEINGS! HOW ON EARTH CAN YOU BE THIS DAFT? REALLY? THIS CRUEL? REALLY! Will never cease to be amazed and the brutality of MAN.

"Yes, this is one of the worst evil act of humans.
And so is horse slaughter which is coming to America. We already allow 180,000 horses to be hauled off in crowded trucks with no food or water to a horrible death in Canada and Mexico.

And so is horse slaughter which is coming to America. We already allow 180,000 horses to be hauled off in crowded trucks with no food or water to a horrible death in Canada and Mexico. Horses are prey animals with the flight instinct and they freak out. Many are seriously injured or killed in the slaughter chutes where they use hot shots or arestabbed to keep them moving. Skulls of slaughtered horse show up with numerous holes in them.
It is impossible to slaughter a horse humanely.
Representatives Meehan and Schakowsky and Senators Graham and Landreu have just sponsored bills to stop all American horses from slaughter anywhere. Can you call Washington and thank them and call your own Senators and Reps and ask them to co-sponsor the bill?
And while you are at it ask them to stop the USDA-Wildlife Services from slaughtering wildlife intentionally and viciously including in 2011 four million creatures - 28,000 beavers, over 500 black bears, thousands of prairie dogs, coyotes, wolves, bobcats, lions, song birds, armadillos, you name it, they kill it.
Perhaps we can get federal bills sponsored to stop animal cruelty like Horse Tripping. Call (202) 224-3121.
And support Mark's Nevada bill and any other state bills against animal cruelty as well.
Bless you all for taking a stand!"
A FAST HELLO AND HOPING ALL IS O.K. STILL YES I AM ON FACEBOOK
I know, you are well... you messaged me about how incredible your life is a couple of weeks ago. Great! Enjoy!
I've been a rodeo fan all my life - but it does seem stupid to lasso a horse around the legs when their legs are so fragile and their body so large - just common sense.
sister it isnt rodeo tripping horses. it is only allowed in nevada! and yes its stupid and cruel! so sign the petition and lets get this stopped.
also pass the link around and get more sugnatures ...it is a worthy cause.
Judy West I already did.
I wonder how they would feel if this was done to them, people like this should be hunted down and removed from society. They are the lowest of the low. These are gods gifts to us, how dare they7
this is a organization that is trying to save horses in Neveda , thought you would like this , afriend of mine Jo Frazee-Rafferty is connected some how I think it is a rescue operation ...https://www.facebook.com/TheStarlightSanctuary
I get all their posts too Paul...Thank you for sharing :-)
This is soo sad, all so they can have their fun, how cruel to treat these animals like this
This world just keeps getting worse, I own 3, they are smart, loving animals,why don't these wackos go inflict pain on them selves .
SICK SICK SICK DISGUSTING PEOPLE. POTENTIAL SERIAL KILLERS!
Shockingly inexplicable. Cruelty to these gorgeous animals must be stopped. ~Lindsay
SORRY I CAN'T HELP YOU!!! MY E-MAIL WON'T OPEN THE CAUSE.
it is a shame that we have to outlaw this..it should not happen in the first place....thanks for bringing this to everyone's attention !
Oh I hope this law can go into effect quickly and the people who are doing this will be forced to stop. I don't live in Nevada but I hope enough voters will be paying attention and get this bill passed ASAP. It's so deeply disturbing.
WTF - this is absurd
