Our guest is Susan Wagner, President and co-founder of Equine Advocates. Founded in 1996, Equine Advocates has helped rescue thousands of equine from slaughter, abuse and neglect.
Equine Advocates originated and participated in many televised and print undercover investigations in the U.S. and Canada to expose horse slaughter auctions, horse slaughterhouses, the tragic fate of most camp horses, the abusive treatment of many mules, buggy horses and work horses by some Amish farmers, the miserable lives of PMU mares who are continually impregnated and turned into 4-legged drug machines to produce the drugs, Premarin, PremPro and Premphase, the cruel urban carriage horse trade and other informative reports exposing equine abuse and other forms of exploitation.
In 2004, Equine Advocates opened the Equine Advocates Rescue and Sanctuary on 140 acres in Chatham, NY, now home to 85 equine (with 3 wild horses, including Hayden, who was rounded up by the BLM in Montana). In 2006, they opened the Equine Education Center, where they hold lectures and symposiums on equine care, humane treatment, natural horsemanship and the enforcement of the cruelty laws. They also host the annual American Equine Summit.

Gene has also testified in courts and before local, state, and federal legislative bodies, advocating for better conditions for farm animals.

Angel Nieves is like Andy Sipowicz or Lennie Briscoe. A retired New York Police Department (NYPD) detective who gave 20 years to the job, he is now a Pet Security Consultant .As a police officer he arrested murderers and drug dealers; now he tracks down a different type of bad guy — with the same meticulous care. He’s always either on the phone or on the computer, adding details to the cases... he keeps in a huge file at his home office. However, some of the cases he works on have to be turned over to law enforcement, so Angel gathers as much information as he can and turns it over to his friends in blue.“I used to save people from animals. Now I save animals from people.”Once bitten in the face by a pit bull that needed to be gotten under control at a street fair, Angel only blamed the owner, who should have understood his dog better. The dog should not have been in such a busy place, which made it necessary for Angel to take the dog from the owner to get it under control. He grew a goatee for a while to cover the bite mark on his chin. Today, the scar is a reminder, not of bad animals, but of how easily animals can get into bad situations — and that’s what he is working to prevent.Angel grew up in the notoriously rough Harlem neighborhood of New York City — a Puerto Rican kid in the primarily black projects — where he earned his first degrees in street smarts and self-defense. He spent a lot of time at his grandmother’s house nearby, where she had chickens, roosters, rabbits, dogs and cats. He sometimes stole animals from slaughterhouses and took them to her. He also used to keep pigeons in a coop on the roof of an abandoned building. He spent summers at his family’s farm in Puerto Rico, and though it was quite a change from the city streets, he continued to nurture his dedication to animals there.

We tried an open discussion last week, but apparently some folks didn't read that part and also did NOT listen to the beginning of the segment. I am NOT anti-slaughter, let's make that clear up front, as I did last week. So, since the last segment was turned into the Anti-Slaughter Show, let's hear from the pro folks. I want to hear from trainers, breeders, and horse owners that understand the logistics of the population problem on the ground right now. We all recognize that overbreeding is a problem, no need to beat that "dead horse". The number to call in is (646)595-2215, option 2. If it starts looking the way it did last week, I'll have to limit calls to 1 min. each in order to get to all the callers I can. Keep it civil people, no hate mail, no nasty comments will be tolerated. Reminder to the group that called in last week: Open discussion involves 2 sides, otherwise, it's just a monologue.

What is Going On with those Elected to Serve the People? Are they Schizophrenic? Are they still drinking their own Kool-Aid or are they just plain NUTZZ? More proof that Congress should be fired. No "horsing around" it is time for GOooh:
S 1867 - National Defense Auth Act makes our Homeland a "Battlefield" and gives the President power to arrest Americans without cause - http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/z?c112:S.1867:
S 1773 Will lead to problems with getting food and diary to market. http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d112:s.1773:
S 968 U.S Gov. will have new powers to shut down websites without a court order. http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d112:s.968
At the same time, What's for Dinner? American Horse Meat?
"Congress has just greenlit horse slaughterhouses". Horses can now legally be butchered in the U.S. for human consumption. Congress enthusiastically lifted a 5 yr. ban on funding horse meat inspections,which allows slaughterhouses to get up and running as soon as possible. “We want horse meat on everyone’s dinner table for the holidays,” said Tyler Knox, a horse slaughterhouse expert from San Antonio, Texas. ”There’s nothing as tasty as fresh horse meat.”
