This is how the scam starts, first Angela will contact some form of new media and tell them how she spear headed the take down of Cavel horse slaughtering plant.

Un-suspecting reporter raises an eye brow thinking this is one heck of a story.  But being a reporter following journalistic etiquette decides to run a background check on their source only to find that she has no involvement in closing Cavel other than a few random post on the internet made by Angela herself.

The usual ramblings are, I am a published thorough journalist, and am the best at what I do, no one is better than me!

It all sounds good until you hear the horror stories of how she lured a disabled woman to her home under the disguise that she would give the disabled woman a home and a job posting items for auction on eBay. But the truth is that Angela lured this woman to her home, only so that she could steal her laptop to gain entry and use what the disabled woman had already uncovered about the horse slaughter industry. Angela stole this womans laptop and sent her to a homeless shelter to fend for herself.. [continued below]....

But then Angela couldn't get into this womans laptop to get the information she needed.

This is very clear as we have found in some statements on the internet in what was supposed to be a private group where Angela clearly spells out her plan to rip this woman off and dump her in a homeless shelter.

Needless to say we all have Angelas in our lives and the best thing to do with them is fight fire with fire and not allow them to bully us into submission. We are also not allowing her to take credit for someone elses hard work in closing down Cavel.

If these women want to come forward that is their choice. But I will not post their names here.

Oh, and if you ever hear her say I coined the phrase Americas Dirty Little Secret.  Run, run Forest run.

We found that to be odd considering she wasn't alive back in the early 1900's when the phrase was coined by the Jerusalem Post Americas Dirty Little Secret

Nothing like the Truth and the Whole Truth!

AUTHOR: Manicmangamaniac - (USA)

Eaglewhowatches, aka Alli from the Equine Rescue Scams Yahoo group (which I often refer to as the Sheidy Shack or the Yahooligans clubhouse because that is precisely where that motley band of moral degenerates gather to smear, trash, bully, harass, libel, defame and drag me and others on the other side of the fence through the manure) is the one who posted the links to "prove" that I'm an opportunistic scam artist, animal abuser ad nauseam, etc., etc. In reality, none of those links even have any relevance to what she and her cronies are trying to prove. Case in point: (((link redacted)))

That link goes to a site hosting 3D models for download, where I've gotten several free models to use in my CGI graphics work. How does that prove I'm a scam artist/animal abuser, etc.?? It's a thousand miles off the mark and shows just how delusional these people are, as well as grasping at straws to make me look like the bad one here, when THEY are the ones complicit in taking people "for a ride" through Christy's sham rescue Another Chance 4 Horses of Bernville, PA.

They will not stop at anything to try and discredit Christy's (and this is true also for Diana Murphy, founder of Voice for Horses Rescue, another bad organization to stay clear of) critics, including stalking their walls in search of information with which to use against them--in my case, they used my foreclosure case against me to get me evicted from my home and my pets taken away from me by animal control. I have all the evidence to prove it and much more which is why they recruited Angela Miller Valianos to lure me to Cortland, Illinois with the intent of stealing my Powerbook so that she could hack into the hard drive and destroy every bit of that evidence I had gathered against Christy, Diana and their henchwomen.

All of them, especially Cheryl Hanna, and especially her, keep on blathering about "Where's the proof? Show it to us if you have it. There's not one iota of proof"-- but if they really believed that, why did they recruit Angela in the first place to steal my laptop on their behalf? Hmmm?

Here's the proof in black and white, as presented in a note by one of my Facebook friends, who received the verbatim comments herein from someone who was in a secret group with these people:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The following are posts from the group....   rather revealing stuff posted here.    

Angela Miller Valianos Can anyone tell me who this person is and what she does in her world ? PLEASE? Charlotte Uhrich 2 hours ago

Colleen Cramblet So why do we care who she is and what she does???? This group was for the purpose of dealing with the crap from Sally. Not wasting time anayzing who and what. IMO this is taking time away from the help the horses need from me. If we are going to accomplish what we set out then we need to deal with Sally or move on and forget Sally. If you get a friend request don't accept it unless you check out who their friends are so we are not being invaded.  

Sandra Slattery Angela.....all you have to do is go to her wall to see what she does. Her wall is open.about an hour ago

Angela Miller Valianos I know her through FB and she is usually very sotty, I just wanted to know if anyone has had dealings with her. Sally posts on her wall quite often so that is why I posted it in here. Everyone wanted to send info to the shelter and library so I posted all the links in the beginning where Sally was and where she was hanging out, but no one has sent any info to the shelter; so here we are. You all know and have had many dealings with her that was supposed to be forwarded to the shelter and it has not. I asked about Charlotte because of Sally. Have a good night all. See Moreabout an hour ago

Sharon Stone We don't have anything to send? Nothing except that written list from you?about an hour ago

Colleen Cramblet We never said we were going to send anything. You ask us to but we don't have the time to dig up stuff from the past that is not going to matter to anyone. The shelter caanot make her stay. Kansas does not want her there. Her brothers are the only ones who can do anything to get help or to stop her. You came to us offering us info from Sallys computer to help us out. There has been nothing provided at all to help with the hell we have put up with. But now you want us to keep helping with your problem with sally. Frankly I am not happy she is in Illinois and the only reason I am here is to stop Sallys slander and harrassment of us who have put up with it for nearly a year now. There has been nothing provided as was promised.34 minutes ago

Colleen Cramblet To clarify why I'm just a little grouchy right now. It's tax season.. am at the office till 10 or after.. drive 45min home.. get to sleep about 2 am.. up at 5 to start all over. I barely have anytime at night to check in on the horses and try to help generate some funds and home offers. And I have no time to waste on Sally that is not accomplishing anything it was set up to do.16 minutes ago

Angela Miller Valianos I am getting a bit grouchy, wait, I am getting a bit pissy as well. We all have issues in our worlds that keep us from what we really would rather be doing; that is my life and the rest of the worlds population. However, I do not start a comment or thread by saying or attacking someone for something they have no control over. I have said a hundred times I CAN NOT get into her computer, I have said it and said it. Keep helping me, I thought you invited me here to help each other, what exactly do you keep helping me with? Do I come in here daily and ask to help me with something? If I can't get into her computer I CANT, that is not my fault. I simply asked who ONE WOMAN WAS and I get this ? Why is this suddenly my problem and my fault ? Everyone wants to stop Sally's slander and harrassment, well a really great place to start is to send everything you have that she has done to each of you to the shelter, maybe just maybe they can and will get her into some place that will help her. I have already told you the police here want her to go away and her only sane brother is helping me but wants nothing to do with Sally. Certainly I am NOT the bad guy here, I have done what I could. Seems to me we are all in the same boat. The last few days have been very touchy in here and I really don't appreciate it at all. I have done nothing to any of you and as a matter of fact I have defended many of you. From me hitting the LIKE button to me asking a simple question about a woman on FB; I am tired of the interorgations because of the silliest stuff. Since I can not get into Sally's computer I guess I have nothing further to offer so let's drag Angela through the mud and see how much she will take; is that a good assumption on my part? Well, I do not appreciate the rudeness and the accusations, I can walk out of my office door and get that BS. As for Sally, I guess it is each man for himself or within your little cliche, at least that is the way it seems to me. I am quite alright with that; after all, eventually I WILL get the rest of the money to get that info off that piece of hardware and I look forward to the day. Until then I will ask no more simple questions so that I do not make you feel that I am sucking you dry and OH WOE IS ME. Nighty Night time here so I am off. Good Night all !!!about a minute ago

Kim Doherty That's a new one - I log into FB all of the time on remote computers & have never received this message. Maybe that's one of their new rotten "upgrades". Or maybe Sally had to guess several times over what your password was. Either way, ...whoever it was READ EVERYTHING!!

Lisa Drahorad From what I know, that big fat Brenda Lewis was doing a nice job with the horses she rescued but then she started getting nasty and bashing other rescues and OUT RIGHT lying. I don't know if she is jealous of the volume the others do becaus...e she can only do a few at a time being that I think she only rents a few stalls at a race barn or something like that. Tried to search their website for the barn address but can't find it. Kristen Boltz is a real nut job! I have tried both ways, keeping everyone and trying to rationalize with them to blocking them if they were nasty on my page. It works much better if I remove them if they make a nasty comment. I never deleted anyone for asking questions, only if they were outright nasty.

There you have it from the mouths (and keyboards) of liars, con artists, stalkers, and bullies. I rest my case!

AUTHOR: Sarahtellsthetruth - (United States of America)

As soon as Sally Schrock was denied a horse from Diana Murphy VFH this is when it all began. Sally made it her purpose in life to destroy her Diana's name. Sally Preston Schrock is a convicted animal abuser. And she is also a hoarder, just like the type you see on TV. Sally had no way to take care of a horse, no job and no money and her house was being foreclosed on. She was out for revenge as soon as she was denied that Appaloosa. Thank God they refused that Appy to her..BTW Sally's publisher fired her as well. Caballo Press. Angela is just another person she is out to destroy

My Personal Experience with AMV

AUTHOR: Manicmangamaniac - (U.S.A.)

I am the individual Angela invited to come stay with her in her home in exchange for selling merchandise on eBay; this occurred last year, in February of 2011. Everything that was said in the initial report about my experience with her is spot on and then some. I originally met her on Facebook. The night she brought me back to her house from the airport, I
realized that something wasn't right the moment I walked inside. Literally every single room in the house, with the exception of the downstairs rec room, was crammed wall to wall with junk, even in her then four-year-old daughter's bedroom. I realized then and there that she is a compulsive hoarder.

The entire time I was there, I slept on a cushion on the floor in her daughter's room and it was literally like a minefield just navigating to my suitcase and other belongings I had brought with me from California. She expected me to list every single item on eBay and get it sold by summertime--which was an impossible and unreasonable expectation on her part, since most of the stuff was dumpster-worthy and nothing people would be compelled to spend even a penny on.

She and I interacted very little; most of the time she was holed up in her office doing God knows what on her computer. I do know she was plotting with the ringleaders of an extremely shady horse "rescue" against which I had been speaking out against for their cruel exploitation of innocent horses to steal my laptop on their behalf and lift the evidence I had gathered against them from the hard drive.

Just over a week after I arrived in Cortland, she persuaded me to go grocery shopping with her and to get supplies for a new dog she was getting from a Kentucky shelter the next day. It was actually a ruse; instead of going to a grocery store or pet specialty shop, she drove 40ish miles over back roads out in the country to Rockford, where she dumped me with
just the clothes on my back at a homeless women's shelter. She did bring my rolling suitcase with my clothes in it a few days later but refused to give me my laptop back, saying I could not have it unless I agreed to stay off of Facebook.

As I am a profoundly deaf person and have been since birth, I needed my computer in order to keep in touch with my family and friends; Angela made it nearly impossible for me to do so. I was forced to go to the public library to use their Internet terminals and could do so only for 90 minutes per day, not enough time for me to do what I needed to do.
When Angela found out I was logging in to my Facebook account, she went ballistic on me and started bashing me mercilessly right on my wall--which caused a great deal of anguish for my baby brother in California. She demanded that in order to get my laptop back, I sign a contract agreeing not to defame her and pay up to $50 for the laptop and other belongings. At that point, I had not even said anything negative against her--but she had smeared me all over Facebook, portraying me as a
thief, a con artist and animal abuser--none of which was even remotely true.

As it was becoming all too clear that she had no intention of voluntarily returning my laptop, I had to contact the Cortland police department for assistance in getting it back. I went out to her home and met with the police chief and an uniformed officer. Angela came out and told the officer she had mailed my laptop a few days earlier--which turned out to be a blatant lie. This was on March 4th of last year. I did not get it back until April 22nd and only after she had mailed it all the way to
the postmaster in Alexandria, VA, who then shipped it to me in care of the shelter in Rockford--with a return address for the Rockford PD.

I found evidence on the laptop that she had attempted to hack into it. Fortunately for me, she was not at all familiar with Macs and so was unable to get at the evidence I had gathered against Another Chance 4 Horses' ringleaders and turn it over to them. Not long after that, it came to light on Facebook that Angela had been in collusion with these very people in a secret group and had been discussing my stolen laptop with them, among them Christy Sheidy, the founder of Another Chance 4 Horses Rescue; Lisa Drahorad, AC4h's special events coordinator; Cheryl Hanna, AC4h's publicity and marketing director; Diana Jo Murphy, founder of Voice For Horses Rescue; and Colleen Cramblet, an admin for AC4h's PA broker horse program, as well as Lori Leach, legal counsel for AC4h.

All of these people have been in a campaign for over two years now to silence and intimidate me for speaking out against their horse rescue scam, and saw an opportunity to recruit Angela into their ranks and use her to hurt me. She was an extremely willing participant who went above and beyond to make my life miserable along with these other people. She even went so far as to post the name, address and phone number of the homeless shelter in Rockford on her Facebook wall and encouraged Christy Sheidy's cohorts to call there and harass the staff, asking for information about me. Four of them did--Lisa Drahorad, Cheryl Hanna, Pam Davis, and a man pretending to be my Canadian friend from British Columbia, who formerly hauled horses for Diana Murphy.

 Since then, other people have come forward to tell me about their encounters with Angela--absolutely none of it good. She lies constantly, makes up stories to make herself look important, and has even solicited money for this or that cause, only to pocket it herself. There is a lot more where this came from, but what I've just related here is the gist of it. If there is anyone out there who's had bad experiences with her, you can message me through Facebook at this link: http://www.facebook.com/sally.schrock.1

What happened at the Committee hearing

AUTHOR: N. Rodgers - (United States of America)

What happened at the Committee hearing

The bill did pass the Agriculture Committee. Opponents of this bill crowded the hearing room, but the impression of many in attendance was that the committee had already made up its mind. Bob Molaro, former Illinois state representative and sponsor of the 2007 ban on horse slaughter, testified against Rep. Jim Sacia's effort to turn back the clock and allow horse slaughter in Illinois. Vicki Tobin, founder and vice-president of the Illinois-based Equine Welfare Alliance, Gail Vacca, founder of the Illinois
Equine Humane Center, and Chris Heyde, Deputy Legislative Director of the Animal Welfare Institute also appeared in opposition to the bill.

No Angela Miller Valianos name mentioned here?

Bill would bring back horse slaughterhouses

Believing horses deserve better, Sacia, a Republican state representative from Pecatonica, is sponsoring a bill in the Illinois General Assembly to repeal the state's 3-year-old ban on commercial horse slaughter for human consumption abroad.Sacia thinks it's preferable to have horses killed locally and blames the predicament on the recent closure of Cavel International Inc. in DeKalb, the last horse slaughtering plant in the country.His plan reopens an emotional debate on horse "end of life" issues that divide hippophiles around the U.S. Both sides claim to have the animals' best interest at heart.Gail Vacca, president of the Illinois Equine Humane Center in Elgin, calls slaughter "just completely inhumane." Many national animal rights advocates are urging national lawmakers to pass the Prevention of Equine Cruelty Act, which would outlaw domestic horse slaughtering for human food in the U.S. as well as transporting horses for slaughter in other countries.

No Angela Miller Valianos name mentioned here?

The Cavel commercial slaughtering plant in DeKalb formerly sold horse meat to foreign markets  and was the last such operation in the nation.Sacia said that horse owners have since found it too expensive to deal with aging or unwanted horses.But Gail Vacca with the Illinois Equine Humane Center said thats just an excuse.Vacca said many of the supporters of horse slaughter are looking for an easy solution to a complicated problem.

No Angela Miller Valianos name mentioned here?

You move so fast, you don't have time to wait till a horse bleeds out. You skin him as he bleeds. Sometimes a horse's nose is down in the blood, blowing bubbles and he suffocates." - Quote from a horse slaughterhouse worker, found in the book "Slaughterhouses" by Gail Eisnitz.

The screams of terror coming from the horses; I have been a professional horse woman for 30 years, and never have I heard such horrific sounds come from a horses body in all my life as I had, just passing by Cavel one day last week while the rear unloading door to the plant happened to be open, - Gail Vacca, a resident of Dekalb, Illinios (home of Cavel slaughter plant).

No Angela Miller Valianos name mentioned here?

Over the last few days, we have been in contact with Gail Vacca of the IL Equine Humane Center HSUS, ASPCA and AWI. AWI has already sent an alert to its members and you should expect to see something from HSUS and ASPCA soon. Well be working with Gail, as we do every year, to defeat this bill. Shes been involved since the original legislation to ban horse slaughter was introduced and did not pass.

No Angela Miller Valianos name mentioned here?

Its Groundhogs Day for the Horse-EatersFor those of you that have been with us for quite some time, yall know what Ground Hog Day is in Illinois. For those of you new to our email group, Illinois has its very own Ground Hog Day. Thats the day that state Representative Jim Sacia introduces his annual Lets overturn the state law banning horse slaughter legislation. This year there is a twist. Sacia was able to get a newbie (2011), Richard Morthland (R) to do his bidding. Yes, we have yet another bill to address, HB 5382.We heard about this last week but it was still in the rules committee. It has now been released to the Ag committee so its time to start dialing, faxing and writing. Since Rep. Morthland is new, lets show him what happens when someone introduces legislation that 80% of this country opposes. If you get the ol you dont live in Illinois speech, tell them that your horse could be stolen and sent to Illinois and that makes it your business. This legislation impacts the entire country.Over the last few days, we have been in contact with Gail Vacca of the IL Equine Humane Center HSUS, ASPCA and AWI. AWI has already sent an alert to its members and you should expect to see something from HSUS and ASPCA soon. Well be working with Gail, as we do every year, to defeat this bill.

How is that even possible? oops, I almost forgot she hads nothing to do with the closing of Cavel, she just made a video of a walk through after Cavel was already closed......toot toot that horn Angela ;)

Toot Toot not even a news station or one that claims to be a REAL news crew.


Angela Valianos Says:
June 20, 2010 at 7:13 pm | Reply

I have been battling horse slaughter successfully for almost 10 years now. My final battle was making it about the people, so I turned the entire war around and introduced the drugs that were in the meat being rushed overseas and not tested for: hence the abuse and lies from the USDA to the EU, the EPA to the people. Now the ENTIRE world has jumped on board with the drug and abuse occuring within all horses: from Wild Horses to our backyard Pets.I coined the phrase: Americas Dirty Little secret, and I am now commissioned to write my stories and hopefully published within the next few months. My editor is also incorporating Wild Horses and the BLM within the contents of one of my books. This WAR with the BLM is far from over and the reasons for erradicating have not been made public, I intend on disclosing these reasons before one of my books comes out, of course with proof of what our Government has intended to do behind closed doors, without THE PEOPLE.I am one of the top investigative warriors in this war and my resources are strong and dependable, and they work for free !!! As we all do.I dont mean to toot my own horn, I just wanted to give you some background information so you are informed of my abilities. Since CAVEL International has finally given up passing/reversing the Illinois Law they have FINALLY sold their property so: I am relocating back home to Texas at the end of this summer so I will be more accesible in the hands on investigative work needed, should you call upon me.One last thing, not everything that has been said about me is fact, and I will make sure to clarify all in one of my books, just for the record.I would LOVE to help in anyway I can, just ask and it is done.Thank you-Angela Miller-Valianos
