Ambush and Assault against America’s Refugee Rescue Horses


Ambush and Assault against America’s Refugee Rescue Horses


Wednesday, January 18, 2017, Riverside, CA – The Wild For Life Foundation (WFLF) was unlawfully ambushed by a crowd of approximately 15 – 20 individuals who came to its equine rescue facilities in Riverside.   Riverside County Sheriff Department dispatched three Sheriff Units in response to WFLF's call. The gang of perpetrators was reportedly led by Mrs. Jackie Autry who had also invited two local news reporters. Ms. Autry and several others went on record with numerous false allegations against WFLF while speaking with the authorities and the news. WFLF whole heartedly and unequivalently denies all allegations of any and all wrongdoing. “We are not sure why they are doing all this, but we do know one thing for sure,” stated WFLF President and Founder, Katia Louise. “What they are doing is 100% contrary to the health, safety, welfare and future of the very animals that WFLF serves to protect.”

Upon WFLF’s presentation of the true and accurate facts, together with WFLF’s substantiated documentation, the Sheriffs’ team asked the Autry gang to leave the area. WFLF has consulted with authorities and several attorneys who have confirmed that several crimes were in fact committed against WFLF during the incident.  WFLF’s Board of Directors (BOD) is considering proper legal recourse and estimates that its course of action will demonstrate itself within about a week or so.

The Wild For Life Foundation would like to thank the Riverside County Sheriff Department for their protection. “Quite frankly, we had expected more from Ms Autry, by way of honesty and integrity,” added Katia Louise. “We have unfortunately been very disappointed by her. We will not allow these people to hurt or threaten our horses, or interfere with our mission to save, protect preserve and defend America’s at risk horses from danger.”
