7-5-2019: A TIER supporter who helps horses in Kill Pens in Texas reached out to us and was willing to pay purchase price and transport costs from the feedlot to Quarantine for a really nice mule if TIER would take him in.
The Ad read:
June 28 - 12 year old gelding mule. 14.3 hands. Very gentle and broke to ride and work.
He, like so many others, do not deserve this fate. He sat in the "Ship Pen" waiting to be loaded with others on a journey of unimaginable horror, fear, confusion and ultimately a cruel death. He was purchased this morning (7/6/2019) before he was to be shipped. This lovely Dun Mule with the high white socks has been named OTIS.
