Ray Paulick of the Paulick Report posted this today:
Yesterday we broke the news of Kelsey Lefever, a 24-year-old woman who has allegedly been misrepresenting her intentions of finding a new home for retired racehorses in Pennsylvania and taking them to kill-buyers instead.
Earlier today, we reported Great Scott Farm fired Lefever from a position as a riding instructor and by all accounts was caught unaware of the charges against her until our report. There will certainly be more to come on this story, but we applaud the quick and decisive action taken by the owners of Great Scott Farm.
But all of this does raise the obvious question, what can we do to keep this sort of thing from happening in the future? We asked our audience yesterday both on Facebook and Twitter if they had any suggestions on how to prevent this type of alleged incident from happening.
If you are on Twitter and/or Facebook, please weigh in with your ideas. If you are on neither, you can go here and comment on Mr. Paulick’s original post with proposed solutions, and read what others are saying. He has included feedback from social networks there too.
Thank you Ray Paulick.
I am wondering if letters, such NK for “no kill” could be added to a Thoroughbred’s lip tattoo? Or would buyers for the slaughterhouses just ignore it, like they do everything else that is put into place. Since horse slaughter is such predatory business, what can be done to ensure your horse never ends up in the hands of a killer buyer?
