CCABLAC Efforts Lead To Cancellation Of Pleasant Valley Farm “Celebration Super Sale & Yearling Festival” At Shelbyville, TN

SHELBYVILLE, TN – The relentless efforts of  “WE, The People”  – “Citizens Campaign Against “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty” (CCABLAC),  have played  a significant role in the cancellation of th”Largest Running” “Celebration Super Sale & Yearling Festival” set for Sep. 1st and 2nd.  This news was first reported in The Walking Horse Report on July 20, 2017.

And CCABLAC is presently raising money to run this AD urging All Tennesseans to BOYCOTT the 2017 Tennessee Walking Horse Super Bowl (Aug. 24 – Sep. 2, 2017).

Photos like this have indelibly imprinted the public image of the “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty Racket –  “A business built on the suffering and pain of horses,” according to MTSU Horse Science Professor Equine Vet Dr. John Haffner.

Protests by CCABLAC animal welfare advocates have focused the public attention on the “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty which will be on display at Shelbyville, Tennessee from August 24  – Sep. 2, 2017.

And undercover photos have let the public have an inside view of what goes on behind the curtains.
