Hey guys I received this message yesterday from one of my myspace friends Kim who has a band on myspace called Brillant Sins. Her friend Ana Pringles boards her rescued horse at the same boarding center as Biggie, who is a cow. Biggie's "owner" is going to auction him off to a slaughter house THIS SATURDAY! So, all I am asking as well as Kim and Ana is to please help Biggie out by donating money so Ana can outbid the slaughter houses. Here is the full story I received from Kim:

Dear Friend.

This is Kim from the band Brilliant Sins. I know you are an animal lover so I feel it's okay to email you and ask a favor. This is an URGENT situation and I have no qualms about begging for help. A friend of mine named Ana Pringles desperately needs help. She boards her rescued horse at a facility where 6 months ago a guy started boarding a steer (a male cow!) named "Biggie." Biggie loves people, is sweet, friendly and almost like a dog - he comes running over to Ana when he sees her - and she has become incredibly attached to him. A few days ago, Ana discovered that Biggie's owner is auctioning him off THIS SATURDAY at the Orange Country Fair for slaughter. She has tried to buy him privately from his owner, but in a weird twist of fate, Biggie won a champion steer competition and is contracted to appear in the auction. And Biggie's owner couldn't care less - in fact only yesterday he made a very cruel joke to Anna about Biggie being a great dinner for someone, knowing how she feels about him. Ana has found a rescue group who are willing to give Biggie a home, but first she has to stand next to all the slaughterers and outbid them and buy him. She will need about $4,000 and is willing to use every penny she has to try to save his life. She does not have much money and I want to help her. WE NEED MONEY ASAP so that Ana is not outbid this Saturday. My friend truly loves this animal and I don't know how she is going to cope if she has to watch him being led off to slaughter. I cannot even bear to think about losing a pet (because that is what Biggie has become) to a slaughterhouse like this. We asking that people send money via Paypal as soon as possible to Ana at her paypal address Apringles@hotmail.com

I am begging you to send anything you can. If you can only afford a small amount, then please just send that small amount! We have less than 48 hours to save Biggie's life. THIS EMAIL IS NOT A SCAM. If you need to verify it's legitimacy before sending money, please call Ana Pringles at (323) 868-2460. If you have a question, you can email me back. But please hurry. We are running out of time and we don't have much money. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
