“A saying from my work culture simply goes something like this, ‘If you see it, you own it’ and with that being said, I cannot in good conscious pass idly by and ignore a letter to an editor published on a Big AG website, recently. ‘Mobil Slaughter Units answer to wild horse problem’ (posted below) Two simple issues are immediately brought to light when reading that headline (of course there are many but to keep it short and sweet) What sort of demented and twisted soul would write about a concept that is both illegal and cruel? What sort of editorial staff would consider publishing such trash? Well, to shed some light on the first question the writer of this article hails from Hermiston, OR which bears the blackeye of being home to Dave Duquette, remember him, lap dog to the now dead Sue Wallis known better as “Slaughterhouse” Sue? Ole Dave has been trying to legally kill and eat horses for years and the folks in Hermiston have blocked his drivel about attempting to open up such a sick operation in their rural town. Perhaps this author is the singular friend that Duquette has in town…she talks just like him. The second question is more difficult to answer, was it for it’s shock value as the rest of the articles are boring and mundane? Don’t know, but it is not surprising that a horse hating letter would pop up in such publication that in part catertors to the welfare rancher and their sympathizers. None the less, take a second and read the article, if you have the stomach for it,then pass by the page where it is posted and comment directly to the letter at their website. (Posting comments to the author here will not go to the site) Mobile slaughter units answer to wild horse problem I am certain that the poor demented darling who penned this note is all excited about having something published, first time for everything, and that she has told her family and friends how wonderful she is…but for the sake of the wild horses and burros, let’s prove otherwise.” ~ R.T.
