Comment:   It has become crystal clear that with the Tennessee and American Public now calling for a “BOYCOTT” of the Animal Cruelty of the “Big Lick” at this year’s Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration in which people will be urged not to attend the 11 day event,   instances of intimidation and violence are not going to be tolerated.

Persons protesting the “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty will be protected,  and those attempting to interfere with them will be held accountable to the fullest extent allowable under the Law.
