And people have questioned here (on the Forum) why I call them "Animal Rights Terrorists"? They are crazy and will stop at nothing to push their agenda forward. This is just the first step. They want to stop all animal use and even ownership for pleasure, work and food.

Cherie, or Flygap, thank you for fixing my typo in the title. I was twitching about it. :)

And yes they are nuts. I can remember when I lived in England, animal rights folks broke into a mink and fox place that raised them for furs. They set them all free, and they went onto to decimate all the local wildlife. Later they released a statement, saying that's the natural way - really 500+ being released is natural?
Idiots.

Also I worked a farm for 2 weeks when I was about 10 years old, that woman was a horder, but I was too young to know. She had pens of cats outside, and horse stalls of goats.
Animal rights folks went in there, and released all the animals, opened gates to horse fields, opened all the runs. Many of the freed cats were killed by the freed dogs. A few goats were taken down by the dogs too, and then all the remaining animals ran large - because that's better right. I assume many starved.

They graffitied ARL all over the place.

Cherie, I question that, if we used Silk milk and didn't eat beef, there would be no cows. So they would rather cows and many other animals are wiped out?

How does that make sense.

People are just so small minded and it never ceases to amaze me how far a person will go to make a "statement".

I hope they can get it fixed and running again soon and that they catch the arsonist and slam them in the face with a heavy law book.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Alex you beat me to the mink incident!!!
Do they have no clue that they aren't helping anything, just giving the horse extra mileage to Mexico where they likely wont get supervised or treated decently
But then the same sort of people who did this were in the anti hunt mobs in the UK - protecting poor little foxes but had no worries about spraying our horses in the face
