Actor Grand L. Bush’s Medical Odyssey

“There is not a single entertainer around that has reached success by staying on the same career path,” actor-turned-diagnostic medical sonographer Grand L. Bush said today. “In fact, research shows that the average American between ages eighteen and forty-six will explore as many as fifteen different occupations before landing the perfect gig.

“Along the way, I’ve held jobs that tested me physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually and ethically. That was good, because each experience made the next one better.”

Raul Julia-Levy: ‘Love cannot be divided’

LOS ANGELES, CA — “I was raised around several families and I was a quiet little boy and the least popular kid at school most of my childhood,” revealed actor/producer/animal welfare activist Raul Julia-Levy in an exclusive interview with Exceptional People Magazine.

“I had dogs, cats, horses and even a little pony. I loved them all the same. My grandfather told me that love cannot be divided between them and that animals have very sensitive feelings.

“Therefore, you must love them all the same way.”

Julia-Levy is currently preparing to film “Havana Heat,” opposite Hollywood icon Wesley Snipes.

Next Spring, he and Snipes will begin production on “Chronicles of the Mayan Tunnel,” an effects-driven 3D major motion picture based on Julia-Levy’s yet-to-be-released novel by the same name.

Julia-Levy has vowed to donate his salary and partial box-office receipts from “Chronicles of the Mayan Tunnel” to help the indigenous peoples of Mexico and benefit select animal causes.

The film is slated for worldwide release in December, 2012.

Actor Joins Fight for Wild Horse Freedom

LOS ANGELES, CA — “Politicians try to convince the American public that this is all about money,” explained actor/animal welfare activist Leo Grillo. “It’s really about large corporations that are connected to wealthy politicians. They get the leases from the Bureau of Land Management [BLM] and then sub-lease them to cattle ranchers for lots more money.”

Grillo’s heated comments are in response to Interior Secretary Ken Salazar’s new federal plan to relocate thousands of desert mustangs to preserves in sharply opposing Eco factions. It has attracted the ire of horse protectors who call Salazar’s pricey proposal a “travesty of justice and humaneness.”

This is why Horse Rescue of America has now joined a growing number of other activists, corporations and celebrities in an allied effort to stop the roundup of these fanciful badges of the American West.

“The BLM runs the public land, which is a quarter of the land mass of the lower forty-eight states, said Grillo. “On that land are the wild horses and burros. It’s ironic that these properties are fenced off from the tax-paying public which actually owns it.”

Grillo contends it is this land upon which cattle is fed cheaply while the leases are lucrative. “Even friends of politicians get the leases and then sub-lease them for tons more money,” he said.

Grillo says relocating the mustangs to unfamiliar and harsh ecosystems would be disastrous. “There’s too much rain, fungi and diseases associated with wetter climates that desert horses are not going to be able to cope with,” explained Grillo. “If the eastern quadrant of the U.S. were a suitable environment, these horses would have migrated there on their own. They’re in the American West where they should be.”

Actor Leo Grillo is founder of Horse Rescue of America.

Grillo says for only 3% of beef cattle raised in this country, it is the wild horse that is being rounded up. Competing wildlife, like dear and elk, are being killed off by the federal government, he says, because they infringe on the cattle’s grazing areas.

“The mustang is being used as a scapegoat,” said Grillo. “It was the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) that made this animal a manufactured problem. It keeps changing policy depending on who’s in office.”
