Emergency Bucket Fund for ARBY who was ridden through the killer auction with a cancerous eye! Please forward and help!






I have good and bad news.  First, the good news!  Olivia, our May Bucket Fund horse with the fist sized hole in her throat has been privately adopted and all of her needs are going to be cared for by the private individual!  That means that the funds we collected can now be turned to another horse in dire need from All Seated In A Barn rescue:  Arby.

The bad news:  Poor Arby.  These photos made me sick.  Arby was RIDDEN through the killer auction with an incredibly painful, cancerous eye (photo proof below).  He was rescued by All Seated in A Barn who sent him to an equine hospital for evaluation.  It is cancer and the eye has to be removed.  Surgery is today!

Please, can we help this 14 year-old, very sweet gelding?   ASIAB tell me that Arby is a delight and so kind… tough to believe that he still trusts after being dumped in a killpen for his illness.

All donations are 100% tax deductible!  Thank you in advance!

Side note of kindness:  He is named, “Arby” because Tahlia from ASIAB kept calling him “Our Boy” which turned into “Arby”.

This is Arby’s eye. The vet says it is cancer and the eye must be removed. Surgery is today!

CAN YOU BELIEVE THEY RODE HIM THROUGH THE KILLER AUCTION?!

This photo made me ill.

This makes me sick. Can you imagine riding this horse, at all, in his condition?!

ARBY’S STORY.

Well, he was rescued from a Texas kill auction by All Seated in a Barn.  They know nothing more but I’m pretty sure the previous owner found him worthless with that eye – so they ran him through the kill buyer sale.  So disgusting.  He is a very nice gelding.  Here is a video taken by ASIAB.   They say he is sweet as sugar.

his is the moment a large 150lb black bear was rescued from a tree in the middle of a college campus in Pennsylvania.

David Cyphert filmed a video which captured the moment the bear fell from the tree into the tarpaulin below at Clarion University in Clarion County Pennsylvania.

He said the bear was between 150-200lbs but they are waiting for the results of tests to determine its age.

A worker used a cherry picker to knock the incapacitated bear from the tree towards the people waiting below with a tarpaulin
The local fire department and members of the Pennsylvania Game Commission raced to the scene to remove the animal.

Three nursing students at the college got the opportunity to tag the bear while one removed a tooth to discover the animal’s age.

The animal was shot with two tranquilizer darts before a member of the Game Commission was hoisted up the tree on an elevated platform.

Mr Cyphert posted footage of the rescue on his Facebook page.

Pennsylvania Game Commission officials told a local media outlet that the bear was relocated to game lands further north in Clarion County.

According to WXPI, the bear was tagged behind the ear by two students, while a third pulled a tooth to determine the animal’s age.

The rescue workers were able to cushion the blow suffered by the bear

According to the Pennsylvania Game Commission, there are approximately 20,000 black bears living in the state. Despite weighing up to 200lbs, the bear can run up to 35mph, clamber up trees and swim. They also live for up to 25 years in the wild (file photo)
The Pennsylvania Game Commission confirmed the bear was fine following the encounter and was relocated to game lands in north Clarion County.

Two of the students put tags in the bear’s ears and the third pulled out a tooth, which was sent to a lab to figure out the animal’s age.

Sadie Siegel, Clarion University Nursing Student, who was involved in the rescue said: ‘It was really cool. I was something that kind of freaked me.

‘It was my last final at 8am for junior year. We were done.

‘We were trying to get the stress off and then there was a bear.

‘It could have been really stressful or it could have been fun, but we made it really fun.’
