Boycott Animal Cruelty At Panama City Beach (FL) "Big Lick" Horse Show
As a child, I fondly remember going to Panama City Beach, Florida for family vacations. The sand was sugary white, and the water emerald green – so beautiful. PANAMA CITY BEACH One could never imagine that Big Lick Animal Cruelty would ever be welcome on the "World's Most Beautiful Beaches". Yet, it will most certainly happen AGAIN this year, unless people from all over America and the World, unite and vigorously protest against it. The Panama City Beach "Big Lick" Horse Show” will again feature "Big Lick" Animal Cruelty, at the Frank Brown Park in Panama City Beach on April 27 -29, 2017. PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION - FIGHT ANIMAL CRUELTY Please send a clear message that the people of America and the World do not believe that Panama City Beach, Florida - one of America's favorite family vacation destinations - should host this cruel barbaric event. BACKGROUND MTSU (Middle Tennessee State University) Horse Science Professor Equine Vet Dr. John Haffner says the “Big Lick” “is a business built on the suffering and pain of horses. The “Big Lick” is an exaggerated gait that Tennssee Walking horses, wearing EIGHT POUND SHOES and wearing CHAINS, perform in the show ring. According to native Tennessean Dr. John Haffner, the “Big Lick” is a “pain induced gait”. THREATS OF VIOLENCE AT 2016 PANAMA CITY BEACH HORSE SHOW In 2016, the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) reported Four Threats of VIOLENCE against USDA Vet Horse Inspectors at the Panama City Beach “Big Lick” Horse Show: * 4-21-16 Trainer hostile and abusive of VMO (USDA VET) in inspection area, Panama City, FL * 4/21/16 Trainers and other unidentified individuals engaging in intimidating and aggressive behavior in and around inspection area; Panama City, FL * 4/23/16 Trainer hostile and intimidating, Panama City, FL * 4/23/16 NUMEROUS RACIST COMMENTS INSULTS AND DIRECTED AT ONE FEMALE VMO (USDA VET), Panama City, FL The USDA Vets DISQUALIFIED 40% of the "Big Lick" Tennessee Walking Horses for allegedly being in violation of the Horse Protection Act. ------------------------------------------------ Violation Of First Amendment Rights of CCABLAC Animal Welfare Advocates by Horse Show Manager On April 21, 2016, the Horse Show Manager threatened to have three CCABLAC animal welfare advocates arrested at the 2016 "Big Lick" Horse Show if they didn't leave. They were handing out anti-soring literature. http://billygoboy.com/2016/04/25/citizens-campaign-triumphs-over-horse-show-founder-ms-martha-sister-milligan-bay-county-sheriff-upholds-free-speech-in-frank-brown-park-tells-sister-milligan-that-u-s-constitution-trump/ This incident was promptly reported to the Panama City Beach Police department. This (DoDo) video – “Here’s What ‘Soring’ Does To Horses” (released on March 7, 2017) has now been viewed almost 12 MILLION times.

Cancel and Boycott “Big Lick” Tennessee Walking Classes - North Carolina Championship Show
Please SIGN this Petition to STOP “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty to beautiful Tennessee Walking Horses. Asheville and Fletcher, North Carolina, are two progessive beautiful cities located in Western North Carolina. Both are known for gentle tolerance, enlightenment and kindness. Unfortunately, these two cities are hosting the three day “Big Lick” North Carolina Championship Walking Horse Show, Oct. 6 – 8. 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 6 – 8 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. 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. Of 83 total horse classes 45 will feature the “Big Lick” gait. In March 2015, the North Carolina Commissioner of Agriculture banned “Big Lick” Tennessee Walking Horses from the 2015 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. At the 2015 North Carolina Championship Horse Show, USDA Vet inspectors disqualified a shocking 35% of all the “Big Lick” Tennessee Walking Horses they inspected for allegedly being in violation of the Horse Protection Act (Animal Cruelty). On July 25, 2016, the U. S. Secretary of Agriculture took action and opened a Public Comment period to make the “Big Lick” illegal by removing the “Pads and Chains”, consequently abolishing the “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty. So far over 81% of the “Public Comments” favor the Federal Regulation to the Horse Protection Act. The Regulation can be made official after October 26, 2016. It’s time for Americans, and people all over the World, to urge the General Manager of the Western North Carolina Agricultural Center; North Carolina Chief Deputy Commissioner of Agriculture; and the Mayor of Fletcher, North Carolina to ban the “Big Lick” Tennessee Walking Horse classes, and to urge the public to Boycott “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty. 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.
