In a recent political maneuver, Abigail Disney, the grandniece of Walt Disney, invoked the iconic Disney film, Old Yeller, to urge voters to reject the Republican Party.

This comes in the wake of South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem's controversial revelation in her new book that she shot her ranch dog.

Abigail Disney's comments were made public through an email released by the Progressive Change Campaign Committee (PCCC) and exclusively obtained by the Guardian. "My great-uncle Walt Disney knew the magic place animals have in the hearts of families everywhere," she wrote.

The Disney heiress expressed her shock at Noem's account of killing her dog in her book, "No Going Back." She drew parallels with the emotional impact of Old Yeller, a film about a beloved family pet's tragic end. "When he released Old Yeller, the heart-wrenching story stayed with people because no one takes the killing of a family pet lightly," Disney stated. "At least that’s what I thought until I read about potential Trump VP Kristi Noem shooting her family’s puppy – a story that has shocked so many of us."

In her book, Governor Noem, a Republican, narrates how she shot her dog after it attacked a neighbor's chickens. Disney sees this incident as a significant part of "the larger story of the 2024 election."

"Walt Disney also understood storytelling. Together, we must make sure all voters see how this sad Kristi Noem episode is part of the larger story of the 2024 election: America could vote into the White House extremists that glorify cruelty and lack basic empathy and compassion," she told the PCCC.

Noem has staunchly defended her actions, despite facing criticism for killing her ranch dog. She has framed it as a testament to her ability to make "tough decisions." In an interview with FOX Business' Stuart Varney, Noem described the dog as "vicious," and dismissed the backlash as "ridiculous."

"This was a vicious, dangerous dog. That was a working dog. And I had to make a choice between the safety of my children and an animal that was killing livestock and attacking people," Noem explained to Varney. "So it's included because a lot of politicians have run from the truth. They want to try to hide from tough decisions."

"I'm proud of this book," Noem stated. "I know that a lot of people are using attacks to try to take me down because they're scared of me. I have so much support and all I've done is won."

Disney, however, drew a stark contrast between the compassionate shooting of Old Yeller and Noem's decision to shoot her dog, which she claimed was "too hard to teach."

"In Old Yeller, the family comes to see the lovable stray dog as an indispensable member of the family. The film’s climactic moment is a heartbreaking one, when the father has no choice but to shoot Old Yeller when the dog contracts rabies because of the inevitable threat to their lives – and, out of compassion, to end the suffering the dog would have to endure," Disney explained in her letter to the PCCC.

"Noem shot her family’s 14-month-old puppy after a hunting trip, in her own account, because she was too hard to teach," Disney said. "‘I hated that dog,’ she wrote, framing the killing of a puppy as an example of strength."

"Kristi Noem is not strong. Like Trump, she is cruel and selfish," she said.

Disney also criticized Noem for her stance on various political issues. "If Kristi Noem was actually strong, she would stand up to the January 6 insurrectionists instead of celebrating them," she said. "Or she would make billionaires pay their fair share of taxes instead of lining up for their campaign donations."

"If she had real courage, she might even criticize the Supreme Court for abolishing abortion rights or making it easier to flood our streets and schools with guns," Disney said.
