Here is the final outcome of the trial we posted about — the one on the Georgia father and son who left a dying horse and abused others in the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness.

Ravalli County jury finds Georgia men guilty of abusing horses on wilderness trip. Missoulian.

They were convicted.

    Absolute trash. This planet would be a much better place if these guys were no longer on it.

    They Heydons are an embarrassment to mankind.

    Unfortunately, in this throw-away culture there are some people who treat their animals as possessions and if it’s broken, as in the case of the horse Able, they’d simply ‘throw’ it away. Those two morons should be fined heavily and I hope they’ll spend a long time in jail.

    I would like to add that when it comes to animal abuse, our government is the worst of them all. Each year millions of wildlife are killed at the behest of the livestock industry.

    Oops, I would like to make a correction on the last sentence. It should read, “Over the years, millions of wildlife have been killed at the behest of the ag industry”.

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."

~ Edward Abbey
