For everyone who lent their support to ending the donkey roping event in Van Horn, Texas this weekend - WE DID IT!
My friend, Linda Carson, at the7MSN Ranch had this happy news to report:
"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!"
Thank you, from the bottom of my heart to the tip of my nose, for stepping up and doing your part for these donkeys, my friends.
Now the next step is to get the donkeys placed with the Peaceful Valley Donkey Rescue, who is standing by to take them as soon as the organizers of this event are ready to relinquish them to their care.
This will be a costly venture. You have supported this cause by signing the petition, writing letters, and placing phone calls. Now would be an excellent time to offer your financial support, as well and you can do that by going here.
There is a list of e-mail addresses here, if you'd like to pen a note of thanks to those who made the decision to cancel this event.
