Whistleblower Who Alleged Horse 'Torture' Threatened With Expulsion from Breeders Group

After speaking out to ABC News about what he called "torture for the sake of a blue ribbon" in the Tennessee Walking Horse industry, the director of equine protection for the Humane Society of the United States is facing possible expulsion from the board of the sport's breeders association.

Keith Dane has been told to appear before the Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders' and Exhibitors' Association (TWHBEA) enforcement committee to answer a complaint filed against him by a fellow association member in the wake of the ABC News' "Nightline" investigation. Dane is a Tennessee Walking Horse owner and trainer and a TWHBEA board member.
