The Los Angeles City Fur Ban - Make Los Angeles Fur Free!

Make LA Fur Free - The Los Angeles City Fur Ban.   Councilmember Bob Blumenfield recently introduced a measure to ban the sale and manufacture of fur products within the City of Los Angeles. The motion was co-presented by Councilmember Paul Koretz and seconded by Councilmember Mitch O’Farrell. The effort was spearheaded by the Animal Hope and Wellness Foundation and Animal Hope in Legislation  If passed, the ban would prohibit the sale and manufacture of products such as shoes, handbags or clothing that are made in whole or in part of fur, with an exemption for used fur products. The issue has been assigned to the Personnel and Animal Welfare Committees.   We are urging that the motion be heard and approved in committee, asking ALL members of city council to lend their support to this important measure.    The fur trade is a brutal industry where millions of animals such as foxes, minks, rabbits, dogs, cats, raccoons, and chinchilla’s are killed every year. Most of these animals are raised on fur farms, where they are kept in cages, barely bigger than their bodies and confined to a life of misery. They live through intense stress and engage in psychotic behaviors like repetitive pacing, self-mutilation and cannibalism.  They endure this life only to be killed in some of the most inhumane ways - electrocuted and stunned, some still alive as they are being skinned. They are submitted to this suffering solely for the sake of their fur. As a fashion mecca and the second largest city in the United States, this measure is life changing, and seeks to set an example of compassion for the rest of the country and the world to follow. Today there are countless varieties of fabric and fur alternatives. There is no need for this brutal industry, and Los Angeles should not support this cruelty. Other California cities with similar bans in place include West Hollywood, Berkley, and San Francisco.    That is why we are urging all members of the city council to support Councilmembers Blumenfield, Ko retz and O’Farrell, and pass this important measure that would change the future of fur products and save countless animals.

Boycott Animal Cruelty At Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration - Shelbyville, TN

Shelbyville (Bedford County) TN is a wonderful community where warm,  friendly caring people live and worship, and believe in the rule of law and the U.S. Constitution. Unfortunately,  Shelbyville (Bedford County) TN is a VICTIM of the ANIMAL CRUELTY being perpetrated upon the Tennessee Walking Horse breed.   Native Tennessean MTSU Horse Science Professor Equine Vet Dr. John Haffner says the “Big Lick” is Animal Cruelty -  It is a business built on the suffering and pain of horses”. The “Big Lick” Multi-Millionaires who have made the local David L. Howard Family wealthy,  are holding Shebyville (Bedford County) HOSTAGE.   They pay the Walking Horse Trainer BOYZ to SORE their horses so they can enjoy the Animal Cruelty Racket. It all starts with the “BABY HORSES” – Two Year Olds shown while wearing EIGHT POUND+/- SHOES and CHAINS.  No other equine breed does this. The local citizens of Shelbyville (Beford County) TN are silently BOYCOTTING the annual Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration.    In 2018,    the Walking Horse “Celebration” is a dying event.    U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN) has not attended the Celebration in 34 years.   The Governor of Tennessee no longer “Crowns” the World Grand Champion Tennessee Walking Horse on the final Saturday night of the 10 day event. *    PROOF OF ANIMAL CRUELTY In 2017, the Celebration World Grand Champion “Gen’s Black Maverick” was discovered to be allegedly SORE at the Celebration (2016).  It took a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Oxford, MS to obtain the “Smoking Gun” evidence.  USDA Vets said the horse was SORE in both front feet.   Facing these allegations,  Trainer BOYZ Mr. Bill Callaway and two owners Mr. Keith and Ms. Lorraine Rosbury consented to USDA Suspensions and fines in the face of USDA Horse Soring charges. *   “BABY HORSE” TORTURE – TWO YEAR OLDS In 2018,   CCABLAC focused on the “BABY HORSE” Torture of Two Year Olds.   “BABY HORSES” are often started under saddle at 16 - 17 months old.   On this video of a “BABY HORSE” on April 14, 2018, TWHBEA Breed President Mr. David Williams, says,  “I Am Smiling - Another Myatt Monster”. This article provides details:    Part II – “BABY HORSES” – Victimized In The Dark Secret World Of “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty To Tennessee Walking Horses Please support “WE, The People” - CCABLAC Animal Welfare Advocates who will again peacefully assemble outside the Celebration Gates to  protest the Animal Cruelty to Tennessee Walking Horses (“Big Lick”).
