GoodNewsFilter: Rescued Horses.
100 Dutch horses
by flooding outside the dikes around
Horsies happy now.

Yay horsies! Thanks, Capt.
for heroic women!!! Why did the animals' owner/s allow this to happen?
The Dutch Party for the Animals has lodged a complaint with the police against the horses' owner in connection with the deaths of the 19 horses.
Glad a complaint has been lodged - this is an unconscionable way to treat any animal.
Yay GramMa! (or GramMa-like Dutch women!) Somebody sing us up a cowgirl song! I feels like dancin'!

Which I happened to get FPP'd on
Yay Grootmoeders! That owner should be horsewhipped.
Just when you thought he was finally through doing damage: the horses' owner is John Kerry.
Couple more pics here.

Yikes, I missed that. Rather horse-friendly isn't he?
Yeah for the Dutch horses!
Pity this rescue technique doesn't seem to have worked for fish.
Fish have to be led back into water. This where we've been falling down, I expect.
Consarned Newfies gettin' evert'ing bass-ackwards!
You can lead a fish to water, but you can't make it sink.
Not true. There is some sort of substance you can rub on the scales of fish that will make them sink. Let me just think for a moment...
Chipmunk sweat? No, no. That's not it. It's been a while. I'll get it sooner or later.
Very small rocks?
Something that comes out of owls, perchance?

Muckstuck horse, rescued in due course
30 horses saved from slaughterhouse, now resting in Colorado sanctuary
Cavel had been the last operating horse slaughterhouse in the country after a separate court ruling recently shut down the only two others, both in Texas. So the supplier contacted the Humane Society after the ruling, which stemmed from a suit filed by the organization against the USDA, said Nancy Perry, the U.S. Humane Society's vice president of government affairs. Perry likened the eventual deal to "negotiating a hostage situation." "I think, he said something like, 'Well, what am I going to do now with these horses?' And I said, 'Well, they deserve to be rescued, and we'd be happy to deal with that,' " Perry said. "We've never heard of this before where horses were in place to be slaughtered inside a plant and found a way to be rescued after that."
