Tonight's guests will be Ginger Grimes, Founder and President of Dust Devil Ranch Sanctuary for Horses in Cedar City, Utah (also home to wild horse "Rocky" from BLM's Rock Springs facility)
Ginger Grimes & Julie Smith of Dust Devil Ranch Santuary for Horses on toughening animal cruelty laws in Utah and Elsa, the horse found starving & frozen to the ground, tonight on Wild Horse & Burro Radio (1/21/15)
Ginger Grimes and Dust Devil Ranch Sanctuary volunteer Julie Smith, who's working to get a stronger animal protection law (called Elsa's Law) passed in Utah. This law is named for Elsa, a 2 year old appaloosa filly who was found emaciated and frozen to the ground in January, 2014. Her mother, Anna, was also starving. Both were seized from the property of their owner, Sonn Kent Berrett of Enoch, UT, who is facing animal cruelty and related charges. Volunteers worked around the clock for 16 days in a heroic effort to save Elsa, but Elsa died in Ginger's arms, surrounded by the loving volunteers who tried to save her.
