NEWS and HOW YOU CAN HELP - PLEASE HELP!!! Judge Demanding Abused Wheelon Horses Be Returned to Owners

I believe there truly are callous people in this world who don't care about the lives of other living creatures.  Those people are those who continue to support the sored horse, who have their horses sored, who fight dogs and roosters, who participate in canned hunts, who enjoy bear baiting and pigeon hunts, and people like Judge Robert L. Headrick.

From Billy Go Boy's website:

A hearing was on the docket Wednesday at 9:00 a.m. to decide what misbehaving, if any,  that Jack Heffington may have done with in his dealings with Assistant District Attorney General Ellen Berez, and to discuss the orderly return of the horses to the owners. The horses were seized in an April 25, 2013 when agents took custody of them because of their condition.

To the shock of those present, Judge Headrick announced there would be NO hearing of any kind, and the horses would be returned by Friday or the Assistant D.A. Berez and SPCA official would go to jail for contempt of court.

Then District Attorney General Mike Flynn ordered his employee Ellen Berez to sign the Order.

Informed sources say that the HSUS presently has spent over $90,000.00 to take care of the 19 horses. Other sources say the horses in custody don’t match up with the papers and it’s going to be a huge job trying to get it all straight.


PLEASE start flooding DA Mike Flynn's office to get this case to the Grand Jury.  The next big meeting is supposedly in November, so email an call him every day if you need to.

Contact information:
DA Mike Flynn
942 E. Lamar Alexander Pkwy.
Maryville, TN 37804
(865) 273-5600
Fax: (865) 273-5617

As always, be polite, but be firm.  Let him know that this blatant abuse of animals and ignoring the federal law has not gone unnoticed by the general public.  Wheelon should not go unpunished.  Let him know that Wheelon will probably go on his merry way and will continue to abuse animals in his barn, and that the owners quite possibly were not looking out for the well being of their horses to begin with if they were sending them to a trainer with known HPA violations.  Ask him how the HSUS is going to be reimbursed for all the time and money they've spent on rehabilitating these animals.

Feel free to also send him this photo, and ask him why this is being ignored.

"She's a Sweeper" in the "bucket stance," typical of a sored horse who is in pain.
This is unacceptable, and these monsters need to be held accountable for their actions, and not just Wheelon--the judge and the DA are included as well.

THANK YOU for your help!
