WSMV Channel 4 News report: Driver Mance Reed fell asleep while hauling slaughter horses. Three of the thirty-eight animals died in the accident. Dorian Ayache from Lebanon, TN is the owner of the horses and is known person who sends horses to Mexico, via Presidio, TX to slaughter for human consumption.

Thank you Julie.

  1. The last I heard they were not able to establish what ‘really happened.’ The horses will be exported to Mexico and there is nothing we can do to stop it which sickens me. The Mexicans should just refuse ALL trucks carrying horses to cross the border. But then, the horses will be dumped by the driver and starve to death!

    1. So these horses had only a delay in their ‘death trip’. I’m sickened by this, too, Elle, but I’m also disturbed by the knowledge that if these horses had been bought from the killbuyer and saved from slaughter, that that can’t be done to save every US horse that’s shipping to slaughter.
      The federal slaughter ban bills must get our every effort! S1176 & HR2966.

      1. Kathe, I could not agree more with you! We never win because we are not one voice, there are too many competing organizations and the faxes and the phone calls irritate the Aides and they just stop counting the calls and faxes. The same thing happened last fall when I had an ‘in’ with a Senator from NJ. Senator Lautenberg was our neighbor when I was growing up and he and my dad were friends. I called and asked if he would get Senator Landriue to call for a Cloture for the Mustangs and Burros. Once word got out, the Senators on the Committee were flooded with rewrites of what they wanted the bill to say. Furthermore, there were charts, anlaytics, etc. etc. etc. That really peeved the Aides so they never delivered the information. THAT sickened me to no end. I blasted a few folks about this and have not heard from them since. I was clear when the word got out to NOT do what they wanted to do, but as usual, they ignored me and a chance at passing the ROAM Act was defeated by overzealous people. Good intentions sometimes truly DO pave the road to Hell. As Ginger said to me, ‘You can’t win if you quit.’ She is correct, however our methodology has to change. Radically! EWA is big now but I have yet to see a victory, HSUS is a losing proposition, the only person I have ever had true faith in is Vivian Grant. We need to follow her lead. Americans Against Horse Slaughter is a great organization but you need to follow Vivian’s lead as she has been doing this since 2003 in the United States. I have been at it since the 107th Congress and I see my ideas being co-opted; the Children’s letter writing campaign was one I started last year, as was the ‘Adopt A Herd’ Program. People did adopt herds but they failed to inform the Mayor of their city or town, or put a notice in a community newspaper, so, another idea shot to hell for lack of follow up! These things will not work unless you literally harass people to do it! Nobody has time. They all want it to stop but they are ‘too busy’ to write a letter, insert in envelope, address, stamp and mail. A task that would take 30 minutes tops! Everyone wants to be spoon fed!!!! I am weary of this, oh so weary, Elle

        1. We all need to commit to this and I’m dedicated to fighting for humane treatment for horses. I’ll send you an email later, Elle. Bravo and thanks to Vivian, and you, Elle.

          1. I have always followed Vivian’s lead. She knows the politics, she knows the Law, she is an excellent writer whom has the ability to articulate so even the ‘slowest’ among us can comprehend.

            Your org should work very closely with Vivian. We have to push folks in the proper direction.

            I will talk to you later!

            :)
