Cowboy Horse Rescue

Written by PETA | May 21, 2007

Leonard_Davis.jpgLike most serious Redskins fans, I have sworn a solemn oath never to say something nice about a Dallas Cowboy, which—as you can imagine—makes this extremely difficult for me. But the unavoidable fact of the matter is that PETA is giving a much-deserved award to Leonard Davis, a Cowboys offensive lineman who went out of his way to rescue a stranded horse when he discovered the animal stuck belly-deep in mud near his home. Evidently, our heroic horse-rescuer noticed that the horse, Ranger, was stuck in a sinkhole across the street, rushed to fasten straps around the animal, then used his John Deere tractor to pull him free from the mud. Davis then hosed Ranger down, as neighbors and emergency responders looked on. To thank him for going above and beyond to save Ranger’s life, PETA has given the Cowboys guard its “Compassionate Action” Award, along with a gift basket and a letter of appreciation. Leonard Davis, you’re a badass. And now, just because I feel like it, here’s a picture of LaVar Arrington ending Troy Aikman’s career.'s Arrington knockin aikman into retirement.

    Way to go Leonard I hope people take this as an example of kind behaviour and make the same kinds of decisions to help animals whenever they get the chance.

    Excellent point Kelly. But back to Leonard Davis for a moment… this man sprang into action with no cameras or reporters around no jumbotron or screaming fans nothing but his own compassionate heart to guide him. In the words of another friend of animals and PETA “It takes strength to be gentle and kind.” Take note Michael Vick.

    How much unclaimed income has Michael Vicks made from illegal dog fighting? How many taxes has he FAILED to pay on that hidden income? In addition to torturing and killing animals the heart of dog fighting is illegal gambling and dog sales which means these people don’t pay a dime in taxes to the community state or federal government. So Clinton Portis is also saying that Vicks has the right to RIP OFF THE REST OF US as long as he hides it The IRS should be crawling up Vicks’ behind and should check out what Portis is doing too

    I’ve been a diehard Cowboys fan since I was 5 and after hearing this good news it somewhat makes up for the past 3 seasons which were mediocre at best.

  • Jack says:

    Yeah I saw that too CupcakeMagee. Clinton’s actually a Washington Redskin himself unfortunately though even that doesn’t excuse him from defending dogfighting. Such a shame to see someone people look up to making that kind of a statement defending animal abuse.

  • CupcakeMagee says:

    Awwww kudos to Leonard Davis… What a nice feel good story that contrasts rather well against the incoherent ramblings of Michael Vick’s teammate Clinton Portis that I just saw on CNN Headline News this morning. He blathered on and on in support of Mikey’s right to have all the dog fights he wants so long as it’s behind closed doors… Riiiight.
