Petition to Matt Buchanan, Mr. David Smith

Boycott “Big Lick” TN Walking Classes – 2018 North Carolina Horse Show – Asheville, NC

Please SIGN this Petition to STOP “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty to beautiful Tennessee Walking Horses.  CCABLAC calls for a "WE, The People" BOYCOTT of the "Big Lick" Horse Show. Asheville, North Carolina, is a progessive beautiful city located in Western North Carolina.  It is known for gentle tolerance, enlightenment and kindness. Unfortunately,  Asheville is hosting the three day “Big Lick” North Carolina Championship Walking Horse Show, Oct. 4 - 6.  Sadly, the horse show will feature “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty to Tennessee Walking Horses.     Tennessee Walking Horses are TORTURED from an early age to learn how to do the “Big Lick”.   It is a pain induced gait. The horses throw their legs high while wearing Chains and SIX – EIGHT POUND stack shoes.   Caustic chemicals are applied to sensitive skin above the horses hooves, and then wrapped with plastic to “cook in” the chemicals which causes the skin to be blistered.   When the chains hit the skin,  the horses throw their front legs high while squatting down on their back legs – creating the cruel “Big Lick”.  “Big Lick” TWH are the only horses in America which wear Chains in the show ring.  And they are shown as TWO YEAR OLDS.
 According to Tennessean and Noted Equine Vet Dr. John Haffner,   the "Big Lick" is a "business built on the suffering and pain of horses".   Dr. Haffner is a member of the Horse Science Faculty at MTSU (Middle Tennessee State University) in Murfreesboro, TN. Even worse, the horse show will be held at the McGough Arena at the Western North Carolina Agriculture Center owned by the State of North Carolina.  In 2015, the North Carolina Commissioner of Agriculture banned “Big Lick” Tennessee Walking Horses from the NC State Fair.  This action came after a Change.Org Petition gained almost 20,000 signatures, and a public Protest was held at the 2014 NC State Fair.  In 2016, over 123,000+ persons signed a Petiton against the Ashevile, NC Horse Show which features what Dr. Haffner says is "Big Lick" Animal Cruelty. This BillyGoBoy.Com video which shows World Grand Champion Tennessee Walking Horse – “Honors” – pitifully trying to canter at Asheville, NC in 2016 has now been seen over  One MILLION TIMES – 1,280,000+ VIEWS. During 2017 - 2018, CCABLAC has protested “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty from Panama City Beach, FL at the Gulf of Mexico to the White House in Washington, D.C.  'WE, The People" - CCABLAC Animal Welfare Advocates have exercised First Amendment rights of citizens to take videos and put them on the internet for America and the World to see the "Big Lick" Animal Cruelty to Tennessee Walking Horses. After you SIGN,  please SHARE the petition with your friends and family via email, Facebook, and Twitter! Your PETITION Signatures and Comments will be delivered to the proper officials.

Petition to SeaWorld Parks and Entertainment, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA)

No More SeaWorld!

"SeaWorld of Hurt: Where Happiness Tanks." Their trademark, moneymaker, their meal ticket, also known as the orca. Life span 70 years for males and 100 years for females, but since 1971 SeaWorld has had 40 whales die in their enclosure and not one has been because of old age. Not a single one. Depression, disease, anger, and the inhumane of the capture and torture of these poor creatures are all reasons why under the watch of SeaWorld orcas don't live past 13 years old.  These poor babies are being starved, locked up, pulled apart from their families, and are forced to breed with their own family members. Orcas are forced to live in a pool 350ft wide, when their average swim a DAY is 100 MILES. They would have to take over 1,000 laps around the tank to make up for the loss of excersize SeaWorld provides.  Wouldn't you go crazy if you had to live in a box room the rest of your life with three more people?? They get anxious and violent being around each other that long. I'm serious, they ONLY get violent when they feel threatened or kept in a small tanks. Despite the violence the owners of SeaWorld still have NO problem risking injuries of other lives for a couple flips and show off moves.  The whales are starved half to death to perfect these precious tricks you have on your android. And when finally fed, the performers DRUG the fish they're feed to the whales because they're unable to provide everything needed for a healthy living orca. When one of the whales starts becoming "too happy" or too excited they are given antipsychotics, benzodiazepines, and contraceptives. In the wild orcas gather their water when hunting for prey, unable to hunt in the tanks, the performers feed the whales gelatin which create obese whales. That doesn't sound like necessary orca supplements?  SeaWorld cares about one thing MONEY. Of the thousands of innocent creatures SeaWorld has captured, they never treated any of they as if they were actual souls. Only profit. These are just a few reasons I came up with to give you a little more inside look on the way I feel about SeaWorld. Help me raise awareness to the inhumane actions brought by this selfish million dollar entertainment center. Stop buying tickets and merch, getting rid of SeaWorld is more than a petition, it starts with YOU.
