Hey everyone . . here is the article. . . no name are mentioned. . . please distribute how you would like to your local papers
For those of you who have not yet heard, there was a man-made (more like coward-made) travesty committed by Ft. Pierre, SD locals. Dually, a horse owned by a South Dakota WPRA, SDRA, and NRCA barrel racer was stolen from the pen he was being kept in for the night at Ft. Pierre. As if the theft was not enough, what the cowards that took Dually did to him was too cruel for words. I will give no details, but these young men abused and tortured this horse to the point of almost no return. His injuries are extensive, and the methods used to create these injuries are nothing short of despicably sick and twisted.
From around the 26th of June through the 4th of July, most of the cowboys and cowgirls in the Badlands circuit have traveled to 8-12 rodeos, some have even gone to more. When we travel, we always look for the safest place to stay, but we look for the safest place for our horses first, not for ourselves. We spend thousands of dollars each year on joint supplements, and vitamins for our “kids” as many of us call them. We pay for massages, acupuncture, and chiropractic work for our 4-legged kids as well. Our animals are always our first priority. To think that some heartless individual would take one of our horses, and literally attempt to rip him to shreds sickens everyone in the rodeo community, and it should sicken those not in the rodeo community as well.
To abuse someone else’s property, and literally have no respect for life in any regard is disgusting, and the crimes committed on Dually WILL NOT BE TAKEN LIGHTLY. We are a tight knit group, and we will stand together to help those who were injured by these horrible human beings. There will be a reward offered for any information as to who was involved in this crime in any way. . . Please come forward and show that you do not accept what was done to Dually! Any donations for vet bills can be made one of two ways. . . They can be sent to 1st national bank of SD, Attention Wendy Halweg, Dually Benefit, 210 N. Lawler, Mitchell, SD, 57301. . .or donations can be made through paypal to the address firstname.lastname@example.org

Rodeo'nSDstyle - 2009-07-08 1:59 PM I also posted a mass email with this letter attached. I keep thinking I should send this to some of those business's down there.
great idea Sharon...I don't want to hurt the investigation but I sure as heck want to see justice served. I've sent them money but in all reality it won't take the pain and suffering Wendy & Dually are dealing with. This is so sad.

I'm in absolute shock at this whole thing...saddens me that there are people out there who's lives are obviously so pathetic that they would intentionally harm anyone or anything...
Continued prayers for Dually
