I know I don't have all the answers and I know I can't right all the wrongs in the world. This horse owner of both market horses & rescue horses is against the inhumane slaughter of horses.
Below is a brief article from the ASPCA on the issue if any one wants factual info from a reputable organization ASPCA | Horse Slaughter
Have a great day everyone and may the sunshine in your corner of the world
We are ALL against INHUMANE
slaughter. The USA had regulations on how to properly slaughter an animal, and used those techniques. Using a knife to stab the horse over and over again? Inhumane. Bolt gun to the head and out like a light? Humane.
There are worse things in life than death. Keep that in mind. You've obviously never seen these "worse" things. Believe me. They are out there. I know of a couple people who have euthenized their horses via a gun, and I know a gentleman who owns a bolt gun for any unlucky situation.
I follow a rescue on facebook (in another country) where they can only do so much before giving the horse back to the owner. Multiple times, the horse had died when given back. And the rescue said "Oh, thank god its over". Worse things in life than death.
