Horse slaughter

A few years ago you did an HBO special on the racing industry and horse slaughter. In that show you interviewed the owner of Another Chance for Horses about the issue and followed her to New Holland where she used donated money to purchase horses for her "rescue". You should know that that particular organization is actually part of the slaughter pipeline in that they use donated money from people all over the country to sell horses for a meat broker. Their 990 from 2010 shows they took in around $990,000 that year. Tax deductible! It looks like your show brought more attention to their group and not only allowed them to make more money than probably all of the other horse rescues in the country. It enables the very meat broker that they are selling horses for online to turn around and buy more horses to sell for meat in Canada at the St Andre Avellin plant, Les Viandes de la Petite-Nation Inc., where he does business shipping hundred of horses each week. You might want to do a little investigative reporting on the state of Another Chance for Horses now. There are many complaints of fraud regarding this organization.
