Thank you E.Q. for bringing this to my attention. Some of you may remember the uproar last year when a certain ‘behind-the-scenes’ video was displayed on Fugly (and all over the Internet) in regards to abuse against Tennessee Walking Horses for the purposes of winning in the show ring.
There was a cry of outrage, but as with many things in life, not a whole lot came of it as the proposed Bill 6388 died in committee last September. Fortunately, tenacity exists in some people and a new amended bill: HR 1518, sponsored by U.S. Rep. Ed Whitfield, R-Ky is being introduced.
Both the AVMA and the AAEP are supporting this bill and here’s a link to the particulars of that: Veterinary Practice News There is an opportunity to submit a comment at the bottom of this article. Show your support!
