COPIED FROM THE LOVE OF DONKEY FB – YOU DID IT!****
“From “for the love of donkeys FB” page:
****YOU DID IT!****
The donkey roping competition on June 23 has been cancelled because of public input and the number of complaints received.
For the love of donkeys, thank you all for being a part of stopping this.
I have personally spoken to the sheriff’s office in Culbertson County, Texas, at 12:50 p.m. Mountain time today. According to the dispatcher I spoke to (Badge #361), Sheriff Carrillo says the donkey roping event on June 23 has been cancelled because of public input and the number of complaints received. We did it!”Let’s keep pushing for these donkeys to get away from their owner.
CANCELLED?! Continued from below update
from continued………….I also pointed out that there are photos and video (now password blocked) on http://www.justhorsinaroundphotography.com/p676930534/e17b0fa5e#h17b0fa5e clearing showing
donkeys being roped in Van Horn last July 2011.
I view this as a victory, partially. We need to get these donkeys to Peaceful Valley Donkey Rescue, we need a confirmation and promise from Jason Owen that he will not participate in any other donkey roping event EVER, meaning by purchasing donkeys for or promoting donkeys in a roping event.
Next we need this to stop all over Texas, and any other states that allows it. We need to pressure the law enforcement of Texas to actually enforce statue 42.09 http://donkeyrescue.donordrive.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=cms.page&id=1122
ALL OF YOU ARE TO BE THANKED AND HUGGED, AND NUZZLED BY A DONKEY, FOR HELPING THESE DONKEYS. My most sincerest thanks and regards, Diana Reese
