Aug 17, 2012

Wild for Life Foundation is pleased to share in the news about members and guests of STAR San Diego, (Strategic Trusted Advisors Roundtable) gathering for an insightful presentation by Filmmaker, Katia Louise and Good Will Ambassador, Bing Bush, Jr., of "SAVING AMERICA'S HORSES - A Nation Betrayed", on Wed, August 15th in La Jolla. Attendees were also treated to a premiere screening of a brand new cut of the official film trailer which features gorgeous new footage of both Thoroughbreds and wild horses from the movie.  

The prestigious event  brought together more than one hundred of San Diego's best and brightest professional advisers who average more than twenty years of professional experience in their respective fields of practice.  The audience was engaged by the thought provoking presentation which was news to pretty much everyone in the room, " said Richard Muscio, STAR  San Diego.
Ms. Louise presented on the preservation of wild horses in America and several key points as associated with horse slaughter including toxic health risks to humans, economic and environmental devastation and criminal animal cruelty. "The criminal element and level of corruption that exists within the horse slaughter industry is well established and contributes significantly to the lack of law enforcement that would otherwise protect equines of all breeds and disciplines, from this predatory trade," said Katia Louise. "The capture, removal, transport and stockpiling of both wild and domestic horses to be slaughtered for their meat is a humanitarian issue that affects socioeconomics, the environment and human health on a global level."

Mr. Bush presented on the relationship of horse slaughter to the Thoroughbred racing industry. "If we compare the number of Thoroughbreds in the United States that were sent to slaughter each year, from 2005 to present, and compared those numbers to the number of Thoroughbred foals in the US, we would see that  a staggering 68 to 79% have been slaughtered during that time each year," said Bing Bush, Jr. "The National Thoroughbred Racing Association should support the American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act (SB1176 & HR2966) which would prohibit the shipping, transporting, moving, delivering, receiving, possessing, purchasing, selling, or donation of horses and other equines to be slaughtered for human consumption."

As Good Will Ambassador to WFLF’s SAVING AMERICA’S HORSES, Bing Bush, Jr. is actively striving to raise awareness as a voice from within the equine community.
