Our investigation team’s work pays off – Ayache Indicted!

Last year, we provided several updates on the progress of the Ayache [Three Angels Farm] investigation. In July of 2012, WHFF & EWA reported that 5 complaints had been filed against Ayache for USDA transport violations but no charges had been filed.

Yesterday, Nancy Amons at WSMV reported that Dorian Ayache had been federally indicted.

Former Three Angels Farm owner indicted on federal charges

NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -The man behind the Lebanon trucking company shuttered last year by the federal government after two interstate mishaps involving trailers loaded with horses headed to slaughter is in trouble again.

ayache2Dorian Ayache has been indicted on a long list of federal charges, including continuing to truck horses to slaughterhouses along the Mexican border even after his trucking company was shut down, and trying to destroy evidence.

Also charged is the owner of a second company, Theresa Vincent, who the government says continued the trucking operation, just under a new name.

Ayache first came to the Channel 4 I-Team’s attention in early 2012 when a load of horses he was hauling to slaughter tipped over on the interstate……….

    Take all the low life’s down kill buyers, transporters any body and every body who even remotely has anything to do with mistreating these beloved horses. If they can do this to a horses they don’t have a heart so they should not be classified as a human.

    And Sue Wallis tells us that horse slaughter has nothing to do with money… Hey Sue and your Pro-slaughter friends we in the US do not eat horse meat and don’t want the toxic drugs meat mixed in to our beef… I hope they though the books at everyone in this case…

    Glad this guy is off the road. Horses aside for a moment, this man put every single person on the road in extreme danger with the lack of upkeep on his trucks. For a brief moment this isn’t about the horses but about the risk to human life with his recklessness.

    I wonder how and if they’ll send him to jail? The guy keeps getting around DOT provisions by renaming his business. If he does go to jail would they let him out early cause he might not a “danger” to society at large (killer on the loose).

    I don’t know if this guy is a citizen–if he is we can’t deport him. If he isn’t we can and should. Maybe some mandatory time at the Antarctica might change him.

    I mean where is the man gonna run off to? There is no where. No Internet (or basically very little), no phones. No books particularly. He might seem a waste to the folks there and I suppose in a way their right. But one never knows. They say that folks that come back are changed forever.

    As an intervention it might be good. He could learn some real job skills.

    Since I’d be preaching to the choir about the horses I’ll just say its the usual statement from me.

    If the DOT made him pay his fines, he would have been out of business long ago. Hope this lowlife enjoys prison!
