Sorry to report that there is no news on the shooting of the filly, Bald-Face Lie. I’ll see what I can do to find out some additional information. If you Google the Weatherford Democrat and the Fort Worth Star-Telegram newspapers, you can read some articles about previous depredations in the area. I, frankly, do not want to post articles of such violence, but, as Kittie Howard wrote, “There is something Really Nasty out there.” I think despite the gore, we have got to speak out about this craziness and drill down into the American culture to burn out those ideas and pathologies, fostering violence against people, animals and nature. The Really Nasty has to always feel the heat and hear the hooves coming at ’em.
I am writing an article on the shooting of several buffalo up north of Abilene, Texas, months ago. It’s a piece I want to spend time on, nail it down and write about the rancher that slaughtered the herd that had “strayed” on his land as well as the culture (regional and historical) that underwrites this behavior. I may have to post the article on another blog than Sage to Meadow, but I’ll let you know where.
