Clark County Animal Control Is Out Of Control

HELP!

Horse Owners and Friends,

If you don’t think this can happen to you it sure can.  On October 20th personal friends of mine who boarded their horses at 1815 Fairhaven St in Las Vegas, NV had their horses seized by animal control.  There had been a longstanding battle (at least 2 years) between neighbors and the property owner who ran a boarding facility. 

20161020_162202The owner did not live on property and paperwork had been left on the door of the vacant house from Oct 13th.  So, to achieve their goal animal control told a lie of “abuse and neglect” of the animals on the property in order to obtain a warrant to seize them.  There was no abuse no neglect. These were boarded horses. People’s personal horses.

There were racing quarter horses in a condition most of us can only dream of for our own horses.  The property owner never even owned a horse.  These horses belonged to people that came before and after work EVERY day to care for their animals.  Now the horses are being held.. they are refusing to release them to their owners.  Some were locked in closed stalls at Horseman’s Park others in open pens.   Now, they have all been moved.  The owners have no clue where their horses are being held.

Anyone who knows me knows I do not tolerate abuse or neglect.  Period.  I need all of my friends or friends of friends to take a few moments out of their day to call these numbers or write an email demanding the immediate release of these horses.  A public apology needs to be made to owners for seizing their horses and telling blatant lies on their condition.  Slanderous lies.  Plus an investigation needs to be launched on the conduct of those that perjured themselves to a judge on the horses physical conditions to obtain a warrant.  They say a picture is worth 1000 words.  Look at the pictures below there are reasons news cameras would not show the abused neglected horses, because they did not exist.

20161020_162251For those of you who say animal control doesn’t come in and just take horses without a reason.  They had issues with the property owner over code violations.  This is fact. NOT abuse and neglect of boarded horses.  Not only can they come in and take healthy animals but they will.

Clark County Invests in it’s Future!

Las Vegas, Nevada

Clark County Parks and Recreation announced this past week that the grand opening of Lone Mountain Equestrian Park and Trail will be taking place April 16, 2016.FB_IMG_1459537366225

Clark County commissioners are set to celebrate the grand opening of this expansion project starting at 10am up until 12:30pm. The location of the public facility is 4445 Jenson Street Las Vegas, Nevada.FB_IMG_1459536756557

The project appears to be a collective effort between the commissioners and concerned citizens that believed the county should do more for the equestrian community. A survey circulated around for several weeks asking the community what they would like to see in their area. It all pointed towards an area that equestrians could peacefully exercise their equines as well as be with their children in a safe environment without having to worry about vehicles coming their way or having to drive miles just to practice.

FB_IMG_1459536848114They declared through their social media page that the use of the arena is for the community and for practice, thus we shall not see any formal events occurring.

Lone Mountain Equestrian Park and Trail was completed based on available funding set aside for projects for the community. It demonstrates that if we get informed and pursue an idea we could work with our own government with money already set aside for community related public facilities. We can’t leave it for the commissioners, city council members, or parks and recreation to guess what it is that we need in the community.

Congratulations, Clark County!

Rafael Rivera Trail Ride

Las Vegas, NV
The non-profit organization better known as “Charros de Las Vegas” held their first annual trail ride through the Las Vegas wash, in Las Vegas, this past Sunday, January 17th following the FMCH-USA National Convention.

Well over 200 horse men, women and children attended the one day event accompanied by the LVMPD Mount Unit and the Northeast Area Command along the wash. Amongst the attendees were FMCH president, Miguel Angel Pascual Islas, and FMCH presidential candidate, Jose Edgar Del Bosque. People from near and far joined in to trail ride from nearby Las Vegas neighborhoods to California and Mexico charros.

“We plan with months in advance, but only advertise a week prior in hope of not having an out of control crowd. The community responded well with 250 on horseback participating.”
– Rafael Rivera Trail Ride organizing committee

The trail ride was strategically and officially named “Rafael Rivera” in honor of the Young Mexican scout whom discovered Las Vegas after wandering away from Antonio Armijo’s six person group travelling from Los Angeles to New Mexico in search of a short cut.

The organization hopes to continue its efforts and bring this trail ride to the committee annually to remind the community of their heritage and how many individuals still keep it alive daily.

“A culture that provided its Heritage to a Nation should be respected like a child respects its parents.” – Alejandro Galindo, Charros de Las Vegas President

Carreras de Caballos Nevada – Senador Manendo En Contra

Nevada State Senator Mark Manendo

Las Vegas, NV – Senador del Estado Mark Manendo a lo mejor no puede hablar con los animales pero ha hecho la causa de ellos su propia en la Legislación de Nevada. El Demócrata de Las Vegas fue autor de 2leyes (SB72 & SB73) y una resolución dirigida a los derechos de animales en la sesión del 2013, que incluía prohibir 3 eventos en el deporte Nacional Mexicano la Charrería pero excluía específicamente al Rodeo Americano. La ley innecesaria fue opuesta por las organizaciones del Nevada Hispanic Legislative Caucus, Hispanic Western Heritage PAC (HWC-PAC) y el de la Federación Mexicana de Charrería A.C. – USA Chapter (FMCH-USA) ya que no existían pruebas de maltrato de animales y se demostró que era menos riesgoso que el Rodeo Americano. Cabe mencionar que los hispanos por medio de la Charrería le dieron la herramienta básica no solo al sistema de ranchos en los Estados Unidos sino que también al Rodeo Americano. Se logra que la ley sea de acuerdo con el reglamento y los estatutos de la FMCH-USA sin afectar ninguna de las suertes charras; con el acuerdo de que la ordenanza del Condado de Clark sea revisada y reescrita a su forma original. Dando su palabra la Comisionada Chris Giunchigliani autora de tal ordenanza en el 2010. Lo cual nunca cumplió!

En la misma Sesión de Legislación del Estado de Nevada 2013 el Senador Mark Manedo también introdujo una serie de modificaciones y adecuaciones a la Ley N° SB83, con el objeto de cambiar las peleas de gallos de delito menor en la primera ofensa, a una felonía.

En Contra de Las Carreras de Caballos

Moapa CarrilAhora el Senador de Nevada Mark Manendo anuncio que va ser autor de una ley para introducirla en la sesión legislativa del 2015 en contra de las carreras de caballos clandestinas. Donde asegura tener documentación de una investigación de más de 2 años dentro del negocio de las carreras de caballos clandestinas. Expreso que estos dueños de traques organizan las carreras sin pagar los permisos ni supervisar el bienestar de los animales. Existen comprobantes de que substancias ilegales son administradas a estos animales sin ninguna receta ni supervisión médica ni veterinario en las instalaciones. Las carreras de caballos son legales en el estado de Nevada siempre y cuando no existan apuestas. Las investigaciones demuestran lo contrario donde en una carrera la suma rebaso los $40,000. No solo eso, atrae violencia y otros crímenes como la venta de drogas y armas. Mezcla todo esto con el consumo de alcohol y el resultado es lo que sucedió en el pueblo de Pahrump, NV el 7 de Junio. El sheriff respondió a una llamada de aproximadamente 50 personas peleando, al llegar la multitud de 200 a 250 personas se voltearon en contra de los oficiales. Tanto fue el desorden que tuvieron que llamar a refuerzos que se encontraban en su día libre, costándole al pueblo miles en gastos. El Senador Manendo concluyo la sesión diciendo “esto no tiene nada que ver con discriminación, yo no sé cómo le hagan en México pero aquí en Estados Unidos el bienestar de los animales y la seguridad de nuestros residentes es número 1”.
