National Sheriffs’ Association Supports PAST Act



In letters to Congressman Ed Whitfield (R-KY) and Senator Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) the National Sheriffs’ Association endorsed the PAST Act, introduced by Whitfield in the House of Representatives and Ayotte in the Senate.  The letters cite the industry being “littered with cases of neglect and abuse, which the current self-policing system has failed to properly address” as one of the reasons for the NSA’s support.

The letters also make reference to the interest in rural communities where many of the NSA’s sheriffs jurisdiction lie.  The letters don’t cite the huge economic impact of the Walking Horse industry in those same rural communities where horse shows invest monies into local tax revenues and charities.  The Walking Horse Report suggests its readers to contact your local Sheriff and inform them of the devastating impacts of the PAST Act on animal agriculture and local economies.
