Horse Killed on set of new film proves American Humane Association Needs to be Questioned

Below is taken from an email I received.  This is a very serious issue that needs
to be looked into
. I am encouraging all who seek the truth to look into what
happened. Please
read below.

Dear Friends,
> >
> >I am so angry I can barely contain myself. Today I received a call
from
>my friend Roland Vincent in Las Vegas. Roland witnessed a "wild horse
>race," which is a rodeo event, during the filming of the upcoming
movie,
>Flicka. The wild horse race releases a group of horses into an arena,
with
>gangs of thugs then jumping on their terrified victims, biting them
(yes,
>biting them), dragging down and other wise assaulting these great
animals.
>The horses completely panic, as you can imagine. Two animals collided
with
>each other, and one did not get back up, possibly from a broken neck.
> >
> >I will state for the record right now that Flicka is Dead on Arrival
when
>it comes to theatres. This is my personal goal. I am asking
activists
>everywhere to join me in dedicating themselves to making this film
trash a
>complete and utter flop.
> >
> >For the moment, however, we have other business to settle. The
American
>Humane Association (AHA) had four representatives on the movie site,
and
>THEY ALLOWED this insanity to happen.
> >
> >I will freely admit that when I called the LA offices of the AHA I
was in
>a complete lather. I wasn't nice nor was I professional. I talked to
>Barbara Casey and Karen Rosa. I told them I expected the four
>representatives to be fired immediately, and that after a review there
>should likely be a lot more. I told them that obviously AHA policies
have
>to be completely, one hundred percent overhauled. I told them I
wanted
>SHARK to have a copy of the footage, to help show people the cruelty
and
>corruption of the Rodeo Mafia. Last but not least, we wanted the
contact
>information for the movie producers. Those weren't requests, they
were
>orders. We were refused.
> >
> >I am asking you to call the AHA, and we have included three offices
>below. There is absolutely no excuse for what has happened. It isn't
>enough that SHARK and other organizations have to fight the Rodeo
Mafia,
>now we have to fight the AHA. SO BE IT! Usually we want people to be
nice
>and professional, but this frankly just isn't one of those times.
When we
>discover rot within our own, the only proper response in my mind is to
cut
>it out.
> >
> >I believe protests against the AHA should begin ASAP. The AHA and
the
>Tiger truck shall soon meet. Please do not allow this poor animal to
have
>died in vain. This morning he was a beautiful, magnificent animal.
The
>AHA, the Rodeo Mafia and the movie producers have now turned him into
a
>corpse. We're already kicking butt on the Rodeo Mafia, and when
Flicka
>comes out we'll kick butt on the movie. For now, it's down with the
AHA!
