Interview Summary

Two interviewers speak to Rex Ellsworth, a Thoroughbred breeder, who at the time was the subject of a media firestorm accusing him of cruelty to animals, while the Humane Society/Los Angeles SPCA had control of his ranch in Chino, California. Ellsworth defends himself and talks about the treatment he's received from lawyers, the Humane Society, the SPCA, the media, and people he knows personally, as well as discussing a land issue he had with San Diego businessman Arnholdt Smith.
