I suppose in your perfect world things like this don't happen? Nice.
And horses chased in Texas? How do you figure that is shock value. I posted that because I thought responsible horse owners might want to keep closer eye on their horses, as there have also been quite a few cases of horses being shot, and either wounded or killed outright.
I'd rather be given a heads up as to what is going on with people's horses in differing states, so that I can assess my horses safety, and determine if there are things I can do to keep them safer, but I guess you aren't like that?
Don't read my threads then.
Won't bother me a bit.
"This POS for lack of better term, has been sexually abusing horses and ponies for decades now, and keeps getting out of jail/institutions.
How is this possible, when he has left a trail of dead and dying horses behind him.
What is wrong with our system of justice.
Google his name to see how twisted this pervert is, and how the state of Wisconsin has failed horse owners.
He trolls CL looking for free horses too.
I don't know if he is still locked up, but judging on past times, I doubt it."
No, I don't live in a perfect world, farthest from it. BUT, the stories you post are called "shock" stories. They are meant to "shock" the reader.
WI didn't do anything to fail horse owners, they did what they were allowed by the law & budget available to them. Is it s**tty it happened , h#lls yeah, am I upset I'm so close, YES! BUT you don't have all the facts, so unless you are able to present ALL the facts your posts are to present "shock" stories.
You have a lot to learn about how media (tv, radio, electronic) works. The more "shocking" the story = the more publicity. And it's people like you who promote the one sided stories, that ends up hurting a lot of innocent people.
Do you have any idea how innaccurrate most media is?? And I don't mean you know because you read it somewhere, I mean have you seen in person first hand how media twists stories to make them more shocking???
Because I tell you what, if you have you sure as H*LL wouldn't be posting one sided "news" the way you do.
In regards to this particular post, I don't care for CA methods, I don't care if he never trains another horse or trains them all. But the fact that this whole thing has been so one sided, pisses me off. NOW, had you posted both sides of the story, fine.
The phrase GUILTY until proven innocent comes to mind.
