It would seem that the track record of Mitt and Ann Romney with animals is less than appealing. I, personally, look at it as an indication of character, which at this moment, seems less than stellar.
We all know about the Romneys’ dog, Seamus, who was strapped to the top of a car for hours on end during a family trip in 1983. It terrified the poor animal to the point where he defecated on himself uncontrollably and was very probably traumatized.
I have always regarded people who can treat animals in such a cruel way as something to be feared, because it speaks to a type of personality that is best steered clear of.
Now we have a new story making the rounds that would seem to reinforce that belief.
Ann Romney, as some of you may know, is in to horses and the sport of dressage. She has a horse headed to the Olympics this year, but before her current horse, Rafalca, there was Super Hit. And last year, she was sued for fraud over Super Hit.
She and her trainers, Jan and Amy Ebeling, sold Super Hit to Catherine Norris, and during the pre-sale examination of the horse, it was found that Super Hit was massively drugged up with four pain killers in her system. It was alleged by Norris that Romney and the Eberlings drugged the horse to cover the fact that the horse was incapable of preforming dressage, due to a chronic joint injury that resulted in several bouts of lameness between 2003 and 2008.
The veterinarian examining the records of Super Hit was seemingly shocked by what he found. Three of the drugs found in Super Hit’s system were Butorphanol, Delomidine, Romifidine, and Xylatine, three of which were sedative pain killers, and the other of which was a narcotic pain killer:
“In my 38 years of practice, I have never come across a drug screen such as this where the horse has been administered so many different medications at the same time. Super Hit’s drug screen finding would raise a significant concern for any veterinarian as to the way the horse presented during the examination on that day.”
It would also raise significant concern over the people who owned the horse. An animal is a living thing, but to someone like Ann Romney, it’s a commodity to be traded, and if that can’t be done above board, it’s hardly surprising that she would take the other route. And to me, that’s an indication of the type of person she is.
So, now we have two instances of animal cruelty from the Romneys, neither of which is any small affair, and they both beg the question:
What kind of inhumane and cruel human beings are these people?
