What Is Your Passion or Your Story
VegasPigPets was formed to educate owners on the specialized needs of keeping potbelly pigs as pets. Most people re-home their pets due to either, zoning, size or behavioral disorders. By helping understanding their pigs, we can usually keep the pig in it’s home. We will help rehome pigs that the owners decide they cannot commit to. Our passion is to stop the sales of teacup pigs. Laura your show helped us reach out to many people interested in researching teacup pigs and we got over 2000 hits to the teacup website by the next morning after being on your show!

Reggie
Told he was 3, vet thinks he is over 10

Reggie Needs A Home!

 

Reggie Needs A Home!

Story

A ranch called VPP in for a consultation on a 3 yr old pig they had rescued early last year. He was having seizures everyday and had lost a lot of weight. When I got there, Reggie was locked in a darkened horse stall (they said he would have a seizure in the hot sun so this was his protection.) He had no water (said he kept tipping his bowl over) and was all skin and bones. Every time I would open the stall door, he would fall over and have a seizure. Long story short, we took him in 2 months later in November & they signed him over 1/10/12. He was 50 lbs in September, he just weighed in at 104 lbs and hasn’t had a seizure in 4 weeks. His skin (like a pork rind) is slowly recovering and we just removed a malignant mast cell tumor from his tummy.

Questions You Would Like To Ask The Animal
1) Would Reggie feel comfortable being adopted into a new home if we could insure he would be well taken care of?
2) How old is he?
3) Did he have seizures his whole life?
4) How does he feel when he has a seizure?
5) Is there anything else I can do for him to make him happier or healthier?
6) Would he like Pork Chop’s company?
Anything else?
I thoroughly enjoyed our last radio broadcast so if Laura would like to throw anything in, that’s great, too!

RESCUE GUEST HUMAN & DOG:

Jill Gasparac
ape4dogs@yahoo.com

What Is Your Passion or Your Story
Saving senior dogs! I mainly save senior pets, giving them a peaceful place to spend their last days/months/years. I mostly save them from our local shelters, but also have taken in owner surrender and foreclosure dogs. Recently I saved 10 dogs from a hoarding situation and have been working with the Kern shelter this past month regarding these dogs.

APe Action: Animals, People, and Environment Action
Website  http://www.apeaction.org
Address  West Hollywood, Ca

We really are in need of foster homes/donations and sponsors. We can’t save dogs w/o donations or the help of people by fostering them for us until they are adopted. Senior pets are usually very easy to foster and just need a nice soft bed and some love and attention. We could save so many more that are dying each day in shelters if people would foster. WE are working on our first PSA and it’s going to be about the need for people to help by fostering!

Zorro 5-10 years old Chihuahua

Zorro Needs A Home

History or Story
A recent save from the hoarder situation. He was supposedly 5 yrs old, per the shelter intake paperwork, but he seems like he might be older than that. Has health issues and is a special needs pet because of this.

Questions You Would Like To Ask The Animal
What is your favorite thing about being here? Would you like to be at the other foster home instead?

How did you end up at the hoarder house?

Do you understand that you are safe here and we are working on finding you the perfect home that will treat you like a king and love you forever?

Do you understand that when you get upset and bark, you make yourself cough and that’s not good for you? (can you ask him if he’s barking when I leave? I hear it when I come home, but not when I’m leaving so not sure if it’s only when they know I’m back or the whole time I’m gone!)

You need to stay calm so you can breathe AND you need to take your medicine so it can help you breathe!

Anything else?
Please go to our website to find out how you can adopt/foster/donate/volunteer…we need people to do so many little things that will be so helpful. Fundraising is a major part of rescue and we need people to help with that if they can’t adopt/foster/donate.

RESCUE GUEST     Robin Budin with Dog Deserve Better

What Is Your Passion or Your Story:

My passion is rescuing formerly chained or penned dogs from their life in filth, feces and squalor, rehabilitating them and getting them new homes.

Website    http://www.dogsdeservebetter.org
Website #2 http://www.rainbowrescues.org
Address:  Chicopee, MA 01020

Dogs Deserve Better is a national anti chaining organization. A new rehab for formerly chained dogs was bought in Smithfield Va. The house that Michael Vick, the football player who fought pitbulls and executed pitbulls on his property was bought and turned into the Good Newz Rehab Center.

They need donations for fencing, for fixing up the property to ultimately handle 50 formerly chained or penned dogs.
I also work locally with Rainbow Rescues out of Chicopee MA and would like people in the New England area to go to www.rainbowrescues.org and look at all of our adoptable animals.
Name of Animal
Lulu
Age 1.5 years
Species Dingo Dog

Lulu Needs A Home

Lulu was found in MS in an RV Park thrown away. For 10 days runners were bringing her food and the security guard at the RV Park knew the police were planning to kill the dog so a rescuer in MS went and got her and got in touch with me to help her. She kept Lulu in her pack of 20 dogs for 2 months to somewhat socialize her to get her ready to be transported. She was a scared mess when she got to me and gets a little better each day but 5 weeks ago she twisted her ankle and has not recovered yet. She wont go for walks yet, she wont really go outside in the back on her own and she loved being in the yard the first 2 months she was here. She has been to the vet, there is no break, but the healing is slow slow slow.

Questions You Would Like To Ask The Animal
I want to know how she feels, if it hurts, why she wont push the doggie door open to get inside or out (she just sits by it waiting for me to push the door an inch). Does she like it here, does she like the animals living here with her and will she want to go for walks again and be outside again and when will she stop barking at new people she never met before.

RESCUE GUEST & ANIMAL

Your Name *     Dee Baldus

What Is Your Passion or Your Story
I have started an organization called Paws for Troops. There is the upshot.

Paws for Troops is a group of volunteers that are enabling military veterans and animals to heal from trauma together.

It is our belief that animals are healing and they offer a level of acceptance to us that is unequaled. With that in mind, we also believe that the military training the veterans have received bring a level of trust to animals in distress.

As an organization, we are looking to assist military organizations, such as the VA and others, by facilitating the veterans as volunteers at local animal shelters and rescue groups.

The goal, at all times, is to maintain dignity for both the veterans and the animals. We believe that we can assist in raising the awareness for the needs of both group and this can offer new opportunities for the veterans.

I will be featuring a dog from one of our rescue groups, Star Paws.

We are looking to launch in 2012 and need to file the 501(c)3. I am doing some fund raising to complete that. Once that is filed, we are ready to go. We will begin by taking veterans to rescue adoption days, such as Star Paws, and have them be with the animals. Walking them, holding them, showing them to potential adopters. Another option is to work with a mobile groomer, assisting them when the do volunteer grooming shelter adoption days.

What Is Your Passion or Your Story:  
I met Laura because she talked with several of my own dogs, which are all rescues, and then I started having her listen to dogs that didn’t have homes yet. When you have dogs that have made it out of a shelter only to be abandoned yet again by rescues or adopters, they have to board to stay safe and this isn’t just expensive, it is very difficult and confusing for the dog, too.

Helping dogs any way I can is what drives me, and I appreciate that Laura’s abilities have made such a positive impact.

What Do You Want Us To Mention On The Show or Ask You
Friends of Irving Animal Services Foundation is a non-profit created to help as many dogs as possible reach the safety of loving and responsible homes. We are not a rescue that takes in dogs ourselves, though most of us have fosters in our homes that were abandoned by adopters or rescues. Instead, we use the power of a large social network to get the dogs the exposure they need and then tirelessly assist rescues and adopters with funding, medical care, transport and whatever else we possibly can supply or do to help save these precious lives.

Instead of just telling people they should adopt their next pet and take proper care of them, we focus on the practical actions that help make these things happen. It is our goal to make our shelter, Irving Animal Services, the first genuinely “no-kill” municipal shelter in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. If we can do it we hope to be a model for other shelters to follow. Others are already using our format to network and fund their shelter pets, so we believe it is just a matter of time and persistence before it becomes a wonderful reality. We know no matter how hard we may try, it’s a community effort.

Name of Animal    Trooper
maybe 2 years  dog, male, neutered
pit-border collie mix

Trooper

 

Trooper Needs A Home

History or Story
Trooper came to a Dallas-area shelter with what appears to be a deliberate chemical burn along his spine and despite his winning personality Trooper was constantly overlooked by adopters and rescues alike…who knows why, maybe his breed, his size, his beautiful black fur, the fact that he didn’t look perfect. His angel Jennifer rescued him and got him healthy but he has been boarding for months now with no interest. He is very friendly and loveable and really needs his own home and people to love.
Questions You Would Like To Ask The Animal
How did you become a stray? What happened to your back? Why do you not like other dogs…and do you think you could live in a home with other dogs and if so, what kind/sex would make you most at ease? What kind of owner would make you happiest? Is there anything you want to tell us, anything you need or that bothers you?
Anything else?
Trooper has his own facebook page! It is called A Forever Home for Trooper. If you would like to inquire about Trooper, this is the best place to do it, or email iasfriend@gmail.com
You can make a tax-deductible contribution to Trooper’s boarding expenses through the Friends of Irving Animal Services Foundation. The PayPal address is iasfriend@gmail.com, or send a check to the address provided above. Or you can go to our Facebook page and look at the wonderful pets still desperately in need of a home before Christmas and choose a dog that is in need of assistance and sponsor that dog directly…or adopt!
Every single cent is used to help needy dogs; we are all volunteers and we pay the administrative overhead out of our own pockets so that the generosity of kind people can go farther to helping dogs like Trooper.

Activist Guest Human & Animal

 

Jayne Miller with OreCat.org

Jayne emailed me: I am founder/director of www.OreCat.org, and I wonder if Oregon’s cougars know how much I love them and how I am trying to save and protect them from hunting. To the world I am a polished business woman,farmer, public speaker, author and artist who never talks about the above. But to those who understand, I am all of the above.

Websites:

www.OreCat.org

www.GrapeLanePoultryFarm.org

Jayne also emails me:

Please ask the cougars if they know I am trying to protect their lives by way of a Bill called License To Protect by OK to ask?  Do they feel my energy, to they “hear” my love for them?

About 8 years ago there was a cougar who walked with me on our farm.  It was after dark under the savannah oaks and I could not see the cougar, but knew something was there.  As I walked, they walked.  When I stopped, they stopped.

The next morning I found cougar tracks about 8 feet from were I was walking.  The cougar walked with me about 900 feet or more unseen.   I believe he/she may be dead.  They had to cross a freeway to find my farm.

All told, there were 3 unusual cougar happenings, one actually being a plant called Possum Haw, that helped me start Oregon Cougar Action Team and the Bill License To Protect.  It is a Bill I have designed to help protect cougars and it is a Bill that has the potential to happen in other States.

See this months Natural Geographic to learn about the vanishing big cats.  This article includes cougars.  My idea of this Bill seems very timely and I plan on posting License To Protect in more detail on OreCat’s website this coming weekend!

I got the Bill introduced at last years State Legislative session, but the Agriculture Committee, by law, reviews all wildlife Bills and they changed it so much I did not recognize it!  Both my draft of the License To Protect, Representative Buckely’s request for the Bill and the final butchered version of my idea, Bill 1202 are attached.

I plan on tying again this next session to reintroduce the original Bill unaltered by any committees. If all goes well with the interview on your radio, may OreCat create a link too it?   Thank you so much!

Below is a picture of a mother and her cub.  I do not know how old they are or if they are still alive.  But the picture catches hearts.

License To Protect

There is a better plan to manage our wolves and cougar.

PLEASE SIGN OUR PETITION AT THE LINK BELOW IN SUPPORT OF “License To Protect” OREGON’S RETURNING WOLVES AND DWINDLING COUGAR POPULATION FROM BAD POLICY MAKING, HUNTING PROGRAMS, AND KILLING THEM SIMPLY BECAUSE THEY WERE SEEN!

What Is Your Passion or Your Story
My passion is to Stop the killing of cougar and wolves. To give them safe homes and places just to be what God made them to be. To enjoy seeing the God Light and energy round them and what they give back to the ecosystems that keeps us all living well. They are good energy and we need to remove the darkness from our hearts that kills them and instead learn to live fear free of them and to believe in their great purpose. I sincerely hope that my idea, License To Protect, will help achieve this.
License To Protect would create a new employer for Oregon Department Of Fish & Wildlife (ODFW) by way of the non-hunting Oregonian (or any Oregonian) buying a nonlethal license for cougar or wolves at the same cost as a killing license; thus reducing the numbers of wolves and cougar killed. ODFW, The Federal Government Wildlife Agency, Oregon’s Agriculture Department and any other agency involved with the killing of cougar and wolves; would be required to hold to the letter of the law License To Protect and not increase kill quotas to offset the cougar and wolves saved from death that LTP would achieve. Currently, there are more Bills and programs from the above organizations established without an environmental impact risk factor or unbiased outside peer review done before thrusting them upon Oregon’s ecosystems; to kill cougar and wolves, thus insuring that there is no true protection for either species at this time.

I grew up on our family’s 7000 acre cattle ranch my father managed using the knowledge of Aldo Leopold. We did not allow hunting and I walked with the wildlife including cougar. 30 years later on my farm in the heavily populated Willamette Valley, a cougar came and found me and walked with me and asked me in my heart to start Oregon Cougar Action Team. A plant, Possum Haw, which is extinct on the East Coast because the cougar has been killed off; came to my farm in that fall desquised as a dogwood, but then in the Spring told me that it was a plant nearly gone because it had lost it’s keystone protector – the cougar. I started Oregon Cougar Action Team a 501c3 educational foundation with no money. Apparently, it was not needed. People came instead and an attorney who did all the paper work for the NFP, probono. We were immediately put on K2New and in several newspapers. The energy is right, the purpose is good and it all conn ects.
Questions You Would Like To Ask The Animal

 RESCUE GUEST & ADOPTABLE PIG INFORMATION:

Date You Are Scheduled Thursday, November 17, 2011
Your Name * Crystal KimHan
Your Email * crystal@vegaspigpets.org
What Is Your Passion or Your Story
I run a one person potbelly pig rescue and placement. I received my 501(c)(3) non-profit designation in Dec, 2008 to try and gain donations to help more pigs. My specialty in helping owners understand and train their pigs before they just give up on their unruly animal and turn them into a shelter. I also run a anti-teacup pig website to try and battle the lies breeders tell to run up the prices on the potbelly pigs they sell.
Name
VegasPigPets
Website http://www.vegaspigpets.org
Website #2 if you have another http://www.teacuppig.info
Address

3188 Redwood St
Las Vegas, NV 89146
United States
What Do You Want Us To Mention On The Show or Ask You
What do people need to know before buying any potbelly pig, especially a piglet?
Why are pigs such specialized pets?
What is all the hype over a teacup, micro mini, pocket pig?
Name of Animal
Pumba
Age
1 year
Species
Pig
Breed
Potbelly Pig

Pumba Needs A Home

Pumba Needs A Home

History or Story
Pumba and 6 of his piglets were taken from an illegal backyard breeder (not zoned or licensed to breed). I took him and the 2 runt piglets and another rescue took the other 4. The owner had 30 days to spay his female and could claim Pumba back, but never did. Upon exam, the vet found that he has what looks like cataracts and so does Percy, one of his piglets. Pumba is almost blind right now so will need a specialized home that he can learn to navigate but also keep him in a routine as without sight, he gets easily confused. He is welcome to stay at VegasPigPets until that special home is found, but we hope we can find him a home that he can have a friend that will eventually become his eyes. He is sweet as can be but without sight a prey animal needs the protection of his herd.
Questions You Would Like To Ask The Animal
How do you feel not being able to see well?
How do you feel when other “new” pigs come into VegasPigPets and you don’t know them? Does it scare you?
What kind of new home would you like?
Are you afraid of dogs?
How do you feel about about Percy and Pip Squeak going to a new home together without you?
Anything else?
I would like to spend some time talking about this teacup pig craze that has resulted in so many pigs coming into our rescues and sanctuaries because they have “outgrown” their homes and didn’t stay as small as promised. I have run my teacup website on behalf of rescues and sanctuaries nationwide who are so frustrated with the lies but try to put the well being of the pig first. Space is already at a premium and if people would not fall for these lies, breeders would have to stop breeding! A regular pbpig breeder maybe gets $50 a pig, put a teacup in the name and they can get $1000 – $5000!

RESCUE GUEST HUMAN & DOG:

Date You Are Scheduled    Thursday, November 10, 2011
Your Name *     Jill Gasparac

What Is Your Passion or Your Story
I started with dog rescue and then dog training but knew I didn’t want to be just a dog rescue group…socially conscious consumerism was always an issue for me.

I discovered a passion for senior pets once my own dog, Roxanne, got up in age and I adopted a senior lab from the shelter to keep her company in her final years. That started the ball rolling towards forming a nonprofit.

We are a 501C3 non-profit organization committed to promoting change by raising public awareness about the interconnection of humans, animals, and the earth. We want to educate people to be socially responsible in their actions and purchases and want to help build a more conscious, aware and compassionate world.

Rescue Name    Animals, People and Environment Action (APe Action)
Website    http://www.apeaction.org
Website #2 if you have another    http://www.see-spot-stay.com
Address     West Hollywood, CA

What Do You Want Us To Mention On The Show or Ask You    
The need for people to stop breeding and buying dogs when dogs in our local shelters are being killed every day. The need for people to spay and neuter their pets.

The need for people to adopt dogs from rescue groups or shelters and to consider senior pets.

Name of Animal    Lily Pie Pumpkin Pie
Age    5-6yrs?
Species    Dog
Breed    Dachshund mix

Lily Pie Needs A Person

 

Pumpkin Needs A Person

History or Story    
Saved from a local LA shelter right before she was going to be put to sleep. Was told she was 10 yrs old…..my vet she’s only 5 or 6 years old.
Questions You Would Like To Ask The Animal
What happened to her?
Where did she come from?
Is she happy here?
What type of home would she like to be in?
Why is she still going potty in the house?
Why doesn’t she understand that potty is only outside?
What can I do to make her more happy and secure whille she is with me?
Is there anything she would like to tell me?
Anything else?
We need foster homes and we need people to help us fundraise.

I had to close my sanctuary due to lack of funding and we now operate Sammy’s Place through foster homes only.

We can only save so many due to space and funding. We need more compassionate foster homes or last home fosters.

We need people to donate to the cost and care of the pet if they are not able to foster or adopt.

Donations can be sent via paypal to donate@apeaction.org

We have to demand better for all the animals. some of the fioxes are as simple as changing the “shelter” hours to be more conducive to ADOPTION byu being open when the adopting public is available. We have been fed the “killing Is kind” paradigm fat to LONG. by calling it euthanazia WE perpetuate the myth….

History or Story
They were dumped at a humane pet store and due to space limits they were being kept in a small space separately where they did not have enough room to hop. The owner did not want them abandoned in the neighborhood as there are tons of coyotes. He was doing the best he could but I could not stand to see them in such a small space. We took them in got them neutered and have had them since Febuary. They are beautiful and now a bonded pair of brothers. We bought them a large dog kennel 5 x 5 feet but sadly they cannot roam free in our yard due to the coyotes
Questions You Would Like To Ask The Animal
Are they happy? What would make them happy? Why when they are let out in the yard when we are around to watch them do they go to the back neighbor’s yard? Is your space large enough? Are you brothers or friends? What is your ideal home? Is there anything you want to tell us?

Address     I.C.A.R.E. Dog Rescue 31441 Santa Margarita Parkway, Suite A-194
Rancho Santa Margarita,, CA 92688

I.C.A.R.E. Dog Rescue is all about heart! Our team has some of the biggest hearts around! I.C.A.R.E. Dog Rescue was founded in the Fall of 2010 and has quickly taken on the reputation of helping and rescuing those who no one else will help. I.C.A.R.E. does not limit our rescue based on how sick a dog in need might be. If they need us, we are there! However, the Rescue does NOT end with the pull! Many of our dogs have had a long road to recovery before they can find their forever homes. Because we choose to rescue those dogs that need us the most, those who are seen as “unadoptable”, many of our dogs are being treated or have been treated for Pneumonia, Kennel Cough, Coccidia, Giardia and much more. We have nursed the extremely emaciated, those diseased with parvo, those with broken limbs, and those who’s spirits have been broken so terribly that they need to be taught how to feel love and how to trust. Through all of this our hearts have been broken as a few have not survived despite our efforts, but our hearts have also been filled with joy as we have seen those dogs that were once abused, abandoned, and forgotten begin to know love and trust. There is nothing like seeing that once sick and terrified pup in the arms of his/her forever family.

I.C.A.R.E. is an all breed, no kill dog rescue. We rescue dogs at risk of being euthanized from shelters, abandoned, abused, and stray dogs. We also rescue many owner surrendered dogs; which are dogs that can no longer remain in their current homes due to financial or personal issues. I.C.A.R.E. Dog Rescue is dedicated to reducing the number of dogs that are euthanized in our shelters each and everyday. We focus on rescuing and rehabilitating them in loving foster homes until they are adopted into their permanent homes. We also focus on educating the public regarding specific breeds, rescue, and general information regarding the canine species. We are a 100% volunteer run and supported organization that cannot survive without the help of loving fosters, volunteers, and benefactors. Please contact us if you wish to contribute in any way.

Name of Adoptable Animal:   Tinzy
Age    2 years
Species    Dog
Breed    Rat Terrier

Tinzy Needs A Forever Home

History or Story

Tinzy was rescued from the Downey Shelter almost 6 months ago the day she was to be PTS * She has had to be moved to several fosters and has lost 2 really good homes bc she bites people and fights with other dogs.

Questions You Would Like To Ask The Animal    
Ask how her life was before going to the shelter?

What is she looking for in a family?

If she is happy now?

Why does she bite and behave the way she does?

Tell her she needs to behave and stop biting because she has had people wanting to keep her, but is returned because of her behavior.

Tell her that we all love her and want the best for her.

Police hunting escaped exotic animals in Ohio. Animal Voices

I turned on the news this morning which I never do and have heard that there are over 50 exotic animals free from their enclosures in Ohio. They caretaker found dead in his house.

 

 

Among the animals bears (grizzly and black), all species of big cats, wolves, camels,…)

 

 

 

I ask the animals,  “What happened?”

Not The Grizzly Spoken To

Grizzly bear:  “There was a woman and her friend that came through in a caged atv and started to let us free. She cut the locks of our cages and she told us to run.  she was laughing as we all ran out of our cages.  At first we confused and then we were happy until the big cats started to fight.  Many of them where hissing and growling at each-other and there was at least one death and the cats where dragging the others around.  The wolves ran the farthest in their pack and I am sure that many of them are freed with out being killed. There are two more types of cats.  The timid ones that stayed in their cages frightened to get out and then the others that ran into the forest to hide.  There are some that are still free. I can see them in my mind hiding behind shrubs and laying low in fear from the gun shots.

There have been so many men that have come in in truck loads they have opened fired and have been cheering each-other when they have made a kill. 

Only a few of them are wiping their eyes in tears of the carnage but no one is noticing those men because the other men are having fun hunting us down and killing us. 

They are no better than the man who have kept us here. 

The woman let us free because many of us have begun to starve.  They have been feeding us less deer and she knew something drastic needed to happen in order for this to stop.  She could no longer see us suffering anymore.  She did what she thought would be the fastest way to put us out of our misery.  So many of us have been sick and starving.”

Not The Bengal Spoken To

Bengal tiger:  “I have been shot and wounded on my leg and am in the woods up high hiding.  They are coming after us with dogs.  I saw my mother fight and kill a larger African Lion that was always spraying our cage.  He was in the cage next to us and my mother never liked him. 

The smaller cats are in the trees also. Many of them will not be found.  They are good at camouflage and the dogs do not know how to smell them different than a bob cat.  This is my opinon. 

I am too large and my leg is dripping. I know I will die because I can feel them closer. 

The gun shots have made us run farther away than we would normally run.  One cat has killed a baby deer and another a small dog.  I have seen it from this tree.  We have always wanted to hunt.  There have been men that have been hunting us that have walked under some cats and even a cat with a kill with them in the tree. 

We all know that we will die and we are ok with it.  I speak for only some of us.  I can feel all there feelings like a mass wave. 

Our freedom finially has come with more fear and smell of death than we could imagine but we do not want to feel the hunger in our bellies anymore. 

We were dying and the woman who set us free did it out of love.  She knew there was no other way to end our suffering.  She did not think that that we would live.  She did not want to see us caged anymore.  She let snakes free too.  This compound had so many animals free.  There is a giraffe as well – In a dark barn.  There are other animals shaking with in fear. 

I may come down soon and let them shoot me.”

Voices of Police Horses At Occupy Wall Street NYC

I have been asked by several people to talk to the polices horses that were being ridden into the crowd at Occupy Wall Street in NY City on Oct. 15, 2011.

I have chosen this video because it filmed up close to the horses. Though there are other videos that show one horse falling to his knees and stumbling to get back up before he is ridden back into the front line and back into the crowd.

 

Here are the voices of the some of the horses.

Horse Number One (horse being pet) says, “I have had to chase down people before.  I have seen people on drugs and people with guns. I have seen it all.  That day was one of the saddest days in my life.  I didn’t see drugs or guns. I just saw people who were hurting inside and I did not understand why we were being forced into the crowd.  I did not understand why there was anger to so many people who are clearly passionate.  I did my job because that is what I always do.  Though I can not help but recall the anger of my rider while so many people thought I was beautiful and brave.  It does not make sense to me.  I have seen my rider rightfully jump off of me and take people down who are bad.  I am glad that this did not happen and we did not do that much harm. I still do not understand.  It is the intention and direction of energy that I understand in people.  The people my officer has gone after before have been confused, possessed almost, angry and dirty.  These people were just sad and I dont know… they seem to want something that… seems right… but I dont understand what that is.”

Horse Number Two Horse that fell says, “I have fallen before I am fine.  I can fall and lift myself up.  It was my fault. I lost myself.  I got confused.  I didn’t understand what we were doing and I spun around so that I wouldn’t hurt people.  I have never been told to hurt people before.  It is not like my officer.  He does not want to hurt people.  I dont understand what happened.  I do not understand why so many people where in one place.  They did not seem like they wanted to steal or that they wanted to fight.  I dont understand the cause.  I have been trying to figure out why my officer pushed me into the crowd and I dont think he knows either.”

Horse Number Three (Black Horse) says, “One time my officer and I went down an alley and were shot at.  I knew what a gun noise was. I had been warned.  The bullet didn’t hit me but it scared both my officer and I. 

I will never forget the smell of his fear.  He had no fear the other day when we were in the crowd. So I did not have any fear.  I couldn’t understand why we were going into the crowd but I thought that maybe he did. But I dont think he did.  The people they seemed angry but in a non threatening way.  When I close my eyes to sleep, I feel my rider spurring me into a barricade and into people.  I feels like a strange dream.  I hated that I stepped on a few people.  When they got out of the way they touched me softly.  It was so different than the other people we go after.  It was like all the nice people on the street where all in one place and the officers didn’t like that.  I dont understand.”

My thoughts:

I would also like to share my feeling towards this incident with the horses.  By reading their body language they looked extremely brave and calm.  I thought about war horses and perhaps they were like this.  The NY City horses are strong, athletic, young and confident.  The New York City Police Horses knew that they had a job that sometimes would put them in great danger.

I watched on the video them licking their lips to calm themselves while holding their heads high to keep a good eye on the crowd.  I watched their ears move in different directions surveying their surroundings.

The horse that fell, I noticed as he was being spurred into the crowd that he fought with his officer.  He would pull back and the officer would spur and kick him forward.  I watched in his body language him get confused.  I watched him not agree with his rider (maybe the first time) and not know what to do with the conflict.  It was in that moment that he shook his head back and forth to get away from the bit and “lost” himself. I watched his eyes loose focus and get what I call the crazy border collie look.  When their heads and eyes are in a million different direction and their eyes are not focusing on anything at all .  In this an animals brain crashes.  He did what he should do when his brain crashes, change direction and recollect himself.  That is when he spun around to flee.  His rider fought him so he tripped.  He got up like he said he did and pulled himself together fast.  Taking a breath and starting over. And his rider headed him right back to the front line again.  The horse stood collected.

I watched the horses being pet by people as they were pushed further into the crowd.  The horses barely flinched or accepted the pets welcoming.  I noticed the contrast of crowds gentle strokes and the police officers abrupt shoves.

It was clear to me that the horses were not scared of the crowd.  They reminded me of a how one of my good guy friends in high-school with be while protecting me for some reason.  Holding their ground.  Not truly taking sides, but would assertively do so when the necessary time came.

I watched the video once with little emotion.  Then a second time I watched it getting a good look at the horses and their eyes so that I could talk to them.  The third time I watched again calling out to them to see which one would like to speak.

Then I started to cry.  When this happens I always feel a little displaced from myself.  It is not always my tears that flow through me.  It sometimes is the animals, or the dead being, or the crowd, or an individual.  My telepathy receptors integrate others feelings into my body so my body reacts.  Its not really me. 

I took a deep breath with tears breaching my eyes and I asked myself, “Whose tears are these?”

and all I heard myself say is, “I am so sorry that we humans put you in situations like this.  I am so sorry.”

My tears were my tears because the horses could not understand the situation.  Animal consciousness is vast.  Animals can understand complex issues, but this incident made no sense to them.  Their officers confused them.  To the horses the officers seemed to be acting out of character and this makes me wonder how kind people in authority can change to acting out anger with raw emotion.  Clear communication somehow gets lost and the worst of people can bubble to the surface.

Do I feel like these horses are OK?  Yes, I think they are fine.

Do I feel like they were put in a situation that was not right?  Yes, I feel like their loyalty and acts of service has been dishonored.

Do I feel like there is a place for police horses?  Yes, if they are respected and cared for humanely.

I feel like there is a part of the horses innocence that has been destroyed here.  They were forced to walk and trample into a crowd of kind people.  I think that alone can trick and confuse any being.  

Do I believe these horses know right from wrong?  I do.

Do I believe the believe this was wrong?  Yes, I do

What can YOU do?

Look at the horses images.  Hold them in your mind and send them love.  Thank them for their service and tell them its OK to be confused.  It didn’t make sense.  Its OK.  Tell them they were brave.  Tell them you are proud of them.  And then imagine only the best scenarios for them in their future.
