Mama26, I take it you're a vegan, then?
As far as pro-slaughter people being 'killers', that's just nasty hyperbole. There are many reasons why people need to divest themselves of their animals, and if they can't feed themselves or their children, where are they supposed to get the money to euth and either bury or render a very large livestock animal? As far as dogs and cats being 'humanely' euthanized, you obviously have no concept about how many of them are put to sleep each and every day, with no loving owner in sight.
If you don't want your horses going to slaughter, don't send them. It's a very simple concept. And that lie about only old, skinny horses going to slaughter? Just AR propaganda. They don't send old, skinny cattle or hogs to slaughter, because the healthier and in good weight animals fetch the highest prices. The same goes for horses.
You're entitled to your opinions but please base them on FACTS, not hysterical, outrageous claims that have little to no bearing on the actual truth. It's a sad, cruel world out there and everything eats something else to live. Humanity is no different.
You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!
