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.

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.

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.

A passion that makes it possible for us to become the "voice" of those who would otherwise never be heard.

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.

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. 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!"

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.

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.
