havasupaihorses: American online news platform @elitedaily recently published an

American online news platform recently published an article by travel writer Kristin Corpuz about travel trends (https://www.elitedaily.com/p/the-most-popular-travel-trend-according-to-pinterest-is-officially-here-13116319). In the article, Corpuz references Havasu Falls and links to a website that promotes the use of pack animals there (https://www.thecanyon.com/havasupai-falls). . . Whether including first-hand or third-party content, travel writers should do their due diligence before promoting travel destinations. SAVE’s exposure of the starvation, abuse and neglect of equines by certain individuals of the Havasupai Tribe has a worldwide audience. . . Please take a few minutes to contact Elite Daily at info.com Re: Kristin Corpuz Article on Travel Trends. Ask them to require their travel writers to do proper research before suggesting the use of pack animals at the destinations they promote. Suggest that they visit SAVE’s website (Havasupaihorses.org) and social media pages. Remind them that countless tourists at Havasu Falls have reported seeing these animals in a deplorable condition, and it completely ruined their travel experience. Thank you for speaking up for the pack animals! Horses

**Action Alert!** According to a recent story in the Arizona Daily Sun, Havasupai tribe member and CONVICTED ANIMAL ABUSER Leland Joe is ONCE AGAIN WORKING in the PACK ANIMAL BUSINESS! (Plz note: these photos are from 2016) PLEASE VISIT OUR FACEBOOK PAGE (LINK IN BIO) FOR FULL STORY - According to the article dated 9-29-18: - After being jailed briefly for animal abuse in 2016 and then imprisoned in 2017 for breaking his three-year probation, Supai member Leland Joe is currently working with horses in the packing industry again. (Paid spokesperson for the Havasupai tribe Abbie) Fink wrote that “there was nothing stipulated in (Joe’s) federal sentencing that forbids him from working as a packer.” While she added that Joe is currently employed in the packing industry, she said none of his horses are being used for packing. - Leland Joe has a LONG HISTORY of abusing animals! In the winter of 2011, two Az college professors who were hiking in Havasu Canyon came across a string of pack animals that were injured, dead and dying. The pack animals had been abandoned on a freezing night by a DRUNKEN LELAND JOE. The professors made a formal complaint to the tribal chairman but the TRIBE DID NOTHING. - SAVE is OUTRAGED that the Havasupai Tribe is allowing a CONVICTED ANIMAL ABUSER who VIOLATED HIS PROBATION to work with horses....again! - We need everyone to MAKE SOME NOISE to the tribal council and the WORLDWIDE MEDIA! Plz COPY & PASTE the emails below and make the subject line “Why is a convicted animal abuser still working with pack horses on the Havasupai reservation in the Grand Canyon?” - MAKE SURE TO INCLUDE THE PHOTOS BELOW or copy & paste the link to this post above.

with ・・・ Graphic Photos 🛑❌🛑The horrific abuse of the pack animals, that I’ve seen firsthand, on the Havasupai reservation in Grand Canyon has been going on for at least a half of a century. Since started exposing the abuse the tribe has responded by stepping up their efforts to prevent the truth from coming out and adventure travel companies continue to use these animals for their luxury trips. Please help , Grant Woods and I end this! Help us expose the abuse, expose the travel companies who are complicit and educate tourists so they refuse to use the pack animals. Please Share!! 🐴💔🐴 Visit Havasupaihorses.org • • • • Horses Falls

havasupaihorses: Friends and followers, @customink generously offered to create

Friends and followers, generously offered to create a t-shirt to help raise awareness for the ongoing abuse and neglect of the Havasupai pack animals. A purchase of the t-shirt helps us further spread the word about SAVE’s cause, and the proceeds (after Custom Ink takes a portion to cover their costs) will go to SAVE. Depending on how much money is raised, we will either use the funds for another billboard or put it towards helping fund the documentary. We will keep everyone posted. • Please take a moment to visit Custom Ink’s website (LINK IN BIO!) and if you would, share it with others and even buy one of the available t-shirts for yourself or a friend, if you like it! • *You may have seen this post previously - we removed it temporarily while the artwork for the t-shirts was slightly revised. • Horses Falls

**BREAKING NEWS -- ACTION ALERT** PLZ TAKE ACTION & SHARE! • The flood damaged trail and campground just re-opened on Sept 1st and SAVE has learned that tribe member and animal abuser Leland Joe is AGAIN working as a packer/wrangler only *TWO YEARS after being CONVICTED in FEDERAL COURT of horrific animal abuse! https://azdailysun.com/supai-horse-owner-charged-with-felony-for-animal-cruelty/article_37ef5abf-2188-55b1-9354-db0bf14b53d2.html • Leland Joe has a LONG history of animal neglect and abuse going back to at least 2011! All of the animals in these photos were owned by him. Why would the Havasupai tribal leaders—who continue to state that they are working towards better treatment of their animals—allow a CONVICTED ANIMAL ABUSER like LELAND JOE to work in the pack animal business again? • Please call/email and demand that convicted animal abuser Leland Joe be BANNED from the pack animal business permanently! (you may copy and paste the verbiage posted at bottom). • Chair Muriel Coochwytewa: 928-433-8132. ext 201 htchair-nsn.gov Vice-Chair Mathew Putesoy Jr. (928)433-8131 ext 208 htvchair-nsn.gov All Council members: council-nsn.gov Tribe's PR firm: Abbie Fink--Afink (602) 957-8881 ****************************************************** Re: Leland Joe Leland Joe is again working as a pack animal wrangler in Supai after being convicted in federal court of horrific animal abuse. You as tribal leaders (and your PR firm) continue to say you are working toward better treatment of the pack animals, yet you are allowing a convicted animal abuser to work in the pack animal business again? Why?? Your words are clearly only lip service. As a person who believes all creatures have a right to humane treatment, I will continue to share through social media and other means all information about the starvation, abuse and neglect of the pack animals by certain members of the Havasupai Tribe. If any members of your tribal council have a moral compass, it is well past time to employ it. You have the power to demand and enforce proper treatment of the animals. Sincerely, (Your name)

havasupaihorses: This review is one of the most honest

This review is one of the most honest we have seen in a while. It describes the experience and points out how social media has become a big part of the problem. Please spread the word and break the myth.

Thank you and for supporting us! with ・・・ As y’all know myself and Attorney General, Grant Woods, are assisting and we need your help! 🐴❤️Action Alert and Update: “Due to flooding on July 11, public access to Havasupai is now closed through the end of August.” The recent flood has created an opportunity for the 3rd party outfitters to come together and CREATE A PLAN to improve the treatment of these animals, who are suffering greatly for the outfitters’ considerable income. Here are SAVE’s suggestions to make those much needed changes: Use a small portion of their profits to hire a professional packer or equine manager! Station one person at Hilltop and one at the campground who have the knowledge and authority to address and enforce rules of operation. These individuals would be answerable to the outfitters, not the tribe. This could also provide employment opportunity for qualified tribal members. Microchip every equine and acquire a chip reader. This will track the ownership, working hours and condition of each pack animal. Educate the inspector individuals so they can identify proper condition. Purchase scales and weigh the gear. Keep written track of each pack animal and the person/wrangler handling each equine for each trip. This could be a simple list on a clip board of the date, microchip, yes/no as to if the animal was in adequate condition to make the trek, weight of the pack for that trip. Ensure that each equine who reaches Hilltop is given an opportunity to DRINK WATER. Please tag/call/message the outfitters posted below and encourage them to WORK TOGETHER for the benefit of the animals and their source of income!

・・・ Clyde is a very special boy that came to us from Havasupai Falls roughly 6 months ago. He was extremely underweight, had received no basic farrier care and his tongue was nearly severed! Thank you to SAVE Havasupai Horses for your efforts in getting him out of the Canyon and Coconino Humane Association and their amazing volunteers for showing this boy a gentle hand and love in his first few months of freedom. Since rehabilitating at Healing Hearts, we have focused on getting him to a healthy weight, up-to-date on medical and farrier needs, & have slowly worked on ground manners/handling. Clyde's personality quickly came out and he is now much more relaxed and happy. At 6 years of age, Clyde is 13.2 hands. We believe he was malnourished from birth and pushed extremely hard at a young age to pack, which stunted his growth. Clyde has all the makings to have been a much bigger horse. Clyde will lunge, back up, and has been saddled a few times (not ridden). He did wonderfully and wasn't sensitive to the saddle! Clyde would do best with someone experienced in project horses and natural horsemanship methods. We know this boy will only continue to excel with more one on one attention and training. For more information on adoption Clyde, please email amanda.org

**PICTURES TAKEN JUNE 11, 2018** We were contacted by an individual who visited Havasu Falls in JUNE and witnessed these horses in the pens at Hualapai Hilltop (the trailhead before descending down into Havasu Canyon - this is the area where tourists and tour companies leave their gear for pick up by the wranglers with their pack animals). From the tourist: “I have some pictures to share from June 11th. The last one had huge open wounds along the spine. We went there on the 9th and the same horses were there on the top by the parking lot, both times with zero food, not even a strand of hay to be found anywhere.” *NOTE THE BLOODY SADDLE PAD IN THE FIRST PICTURE. • A reminder to all visitors of Havasu Falls - please make formal complaints to the BIA (928) 769-2220 or in the village of Supai at the small station behind the buildings in center of town.  Document what you see like this tourist did - take photos, note the day and time, location, and any other identifying features that might help authorities locate the owner and the animal after the fact. • We ask our followers to please contact the Tribal leaders and ask them, respectfully, why they are STILL ALLOWING individuals to starve their animals and work them to the point of causing open, bleeding sores on their bodies. These animals are living, breathing creatures just like us, who are not immune to pain and suffering. Why is this treatment tolerated and allowed? • Tribal office phone: ‭(928) 433-8130‬ Tribal Council: Council-nsn.gov Chairperson: htchair-nsn.gov Vice Chair: htvchair-nsn.gov Abbie Fink, spokesperson for the tribe: Afink; (602) 957-8881 **(Note: a woman on instagram has informed us that she called and spoke to Abbie directly today regarding this latest tourist’s account. One of Abbie’s responses is that these photos are not as recent as we’re claiming them to be. So that it’s clear, when tourists contact us with photos and documentation from their trip, we do not alter that information in our posts. We state the exact information we are provided with, by the tourist.)

havasupaihorses: We appreciate all of you supporting our efforts

We appreciate all of you supporting our efforts by following this page, engaging with us, and keeping pressure on the authorities. THANK YOU. We have a simple request however, and it’s one we try to remind our followers of often: we ask that your communications here on this page and other social media platforms, with the Tribe, and with any other group or individual regarding this issue, be respectful and solution-focused, not just critical. We will be the first to admit that the photos and stories we share are deeply bothersome and can evoke anger and frustration – we get it. But SAVE believes that your concerns can still be communicated in a non-disparaging manner, and likely be more well received without using vulgar, disrespectful language. Disrespectful comments accomplish nothing positive. Please remember this is ALL for the animals suffering on the Havasupai Reservation. We do the best we can to delete vulgar and offensive comments, but we don’t always catch everything, which is why we ask that if you choose to leave a comment, please do so respectfully or don’t leave one at all. Our page does not, and never has, condoned the use of hateful language. • 📍www.HavasupaiHorses.org

havasupaihorses: Video received 7/9/18 from Marlene Rodriguez.

Video received 7/9/18 from Marlene Rodriguez. She took this video yesterday, July 8th. Marlene’s words: “Hello, I just came out of the canyon today and, although I didn't see any malnourished horse's, I did see this poor horse tied up in the scorching sun breathing very heavily. The bin that is supposed to hold water was empty. The horse seemed to be extremely tired. I did check another bin to see if it had water and it was also empty with just a bit of grass at the bottom mixed with water. There were multiple village men at the top strapping bags to the horses but I was not told to not take pictures. To be fair I don’t think they paid much attention to me. I found your page before my trip so I knew to not use the pack animals. I can just say that after many of your stories and my own experience, I will not be going back.” PLEASE – • CALL THE FOLLOWING BUREAU OF INDIAN AFFAIRS OFFICES TO VOICE YOUR OUTRAGE THAT THIS GROSS NEGLECT IS STILL HAPPENING. • ASK THEM WHEN AND WHAT THEY ARE GOING TO DO ABOUT IT. • BIA Office Dispatch : (928) 769-2220 • BIA in Phoenix (602) 379-6958 • Lt.
