Punish Rider Accused of Punching Horse During Parade

Target: Leon A. Cannizzaro, Jr, District Attorney for Orleans Parish, Louisiana

Goal: Demand that the rider who allegedly beat his horse during a parade receives the maximum penalty by law.

A horse was allegedly abused by his rider in a shocking case of animal cruelty. A video, taken by a witness, appeared to show the rider punching his horse in the face during a parade. Demand justice for this innocent horse.

The Louisiana SPCA cited a man with animal cruelty after he allegedly beat a horse. Gruesome video, taken during the New Orleans parade of the Krewe of Oshun, reportedly showed the rider repeatedly kicking his horse and then punching him in the face. In the video, the horse appeared distressed and confused by the beating. The video went viral on Facebook and concerned citizens contacted the Louisiana SPCA. Their investigation led them to Nu Generations, a local riding group. Nu Generations identified the man as one of their riders and that rider, whose name has been withheld, is now banned from riding with the group.

The Louisiana SPCA will care for the horse until this case is concluded. The rider was charged with animal cruelty and an arraignment date has been set. Sign below and demand that the rider receives the maximum penalty by law, if convicted.


Dear District Attorney Cannizzaro,

A horse suffered when he was allegedly kicked and punched by his rider. A shocking viral video reportedly showed the man punching the horse in the face during a parade. We demand justice for this poor horse.

The Louisiana SPCA charged an unidentified rider with animal cruelty after a video reportedly showed him punching and kicking his horse. The video, taken during the New Orleans’ parade of the Krewe of Oshun, appeared to show the horse leaning away from the rider as he repeatedly kicked him and then punched him in the face. Nu Generations, a local riding group, identified the man as one of their riders and banned him from riding with them again. The Louisiana SPCA took custody of the horse until the case is concluded. The rider has been issued an arraignment date.

This horrific abuse must be punished. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.

  1. I keep saying to give this person the same tretament in front of many others and much more torture till he learn. Others in more cruel acts should suffer torture the same and death, even if the animal they abused survive. Other things I don’t understand is those people who saw, who go filming to went viral, WHY THEY DIDN’T DO ANYTHING TO THAT PERSON? wHY DIDN’T THEY BEAT HIM? iF EVERY TIME ABUSERS DO THIS IN PUBLIC THE PUBLIC WENT AFTER THEM AND TORTURE AND BEAT THEM THNIGS ALREADY HAVE CHANGED. THEY EVEN HAVE THE NERVE TO DO IT IN PUBLIC AND THAN THINK: oh I AM IN A MOVIE. Someone is filming my acts so i will went viral, I am an heroe. While if the crowd just beat him to death and all the others who abuse animals, they wouldn’t try again as they are dead and the others of the same kind wouldn’t risk. Could try to do it in a solitary place but eventually they will be found and should be also tortured and killed. Now what we have is people saying nothing but filming and than is petitions and more petitions, but punishment to the sickos I don’t see.

    • Yup, the crowd should have dragged him off this horse and given him what he DESERVED. That certainly WOULD help deter more abusers, at least in public. People need to stop TOLERATING all this animal abuse and do what the law doesn’t bother doing.

    • These Retards need a red Hot Poker where the sun doesn’t shine. Evil, wicked scum needs dispatching from the earth, each of them, so that animals are safe. JUSTICE FOR ANIMALS, please God

  2. this sicko needs to punched and kicked I hope the horse was taken away from him and he’s never allowed another ever
