For Immediate Release May 5, 2008

REAL SPORTS WITH BRYANT GUMBEL

INVESTIGATES THE SLAUGHTER OF THOROUGHBRED HORSES FOR PROFIT,

Segments include:

*Hidden Horses. Few casual horse racing fans are aware that many former racing horses are slaughtered for profit. When a thoroughbred race horse reaches the end of its career or is simply no longer profitable on the track, it is often taken directly to auction and sold for meat. Because horse slaughter is no longer practiced in this country, these
Thoroughbreds are now being shipped by “killer buyers” to slaughterhouses abroad, which are frequently less regulated and less humane than former U.S. Slaughterhouses.

FOB's.. a few of us here have been working for weeks with HBO on a
Story about horse slaughter that is scheduled to air on May 12th at 10pm
Eastern.
The horse slaughter piece will be featured on HBO Real Sports with Bryant
Gumbel!! This is going to give us tremendous exposure..something like 20-30
MILLION viewers!
I will be posting further information, including the real story of the
Sugarcreek Six (who were originally to have been part of this story, which
Required our need for such secrecy!) as details become available.
This show WILL be the catalyst we need to get our bill passed and finally
Make our horses SAFE!!

What???? I don't know if I am reading this right. Is this a show to promote the USHS slaughter ban bill?

Exactly! The last thing we need IMO is some one sided, half truth telling,extravaganza hosted by Bryant Gumbel so millions of bleeding heart city dwellers will want a half-baked government controlled ban! If HBO gave a hoot about this topic for reasons other than ratings and would put the money it took to make a show like this towards quality regulations humane regulated facilities could be opperated IN the US.

Ok... I'll quit now...grrr
