Pagosa Sun - Letter to the Editor from Paula Bacon, Former Mayor of Kaufman, Texas regarding Brown taking horses to slaughter
Horse slaughter records obtained from the Clerks Office in Tarrant County, Texas
(only about 10% of the horse slaughter records were gone through and Brown's name showed up many times)
"Powerful proponents of horse slaughter have been pushing some state legislatures to pass laws promoting taxpayer-subsidized horse slaughter. Will J. Paul Brown carry the water for the special interests of the foreign horse slaughter market to try and promote this exploitative practice in Colorado?" ~ Paula Bacon
It has been told by some that J Paul Brown really is a "wolf in sheep's clothing".
