    Do you have any viable solutions? I'm just curious, not calling you out or anything. I've thought about this issue many times and haven't come up with anything that is actually workable. I don't think slaughter is the "answer" in and of itself. It doesn't really solve any problems, but it may be a part of the solution.

    Lacyloo/Spastic - In my experience no matter how it's done it basically sucks. I think some people need to realize that a quick bullet (or blow) to the head is a better death than a long slow one by starvation or disease. **** I hope to have that choice when the time comes.

    As stated, they could just use a gun instead of the horrible process they go through now. Something that would not allow them to suffer. And the conditions that the horses are in could certainly be improved upon. I don't think it's that hard to not torture horses.

    And serve absolutely no purpose for society and cut out millions of slaughter worker's jobs? Think of all the jobs that will be.. Gone.

    Just because you see slaughter houses on YouTube that 'abuse' does not mean all slaughter houses do.

    I think one should be able to drag their horse to the slaughter house, and shoot them there so they can use the corpse.

    Well, I love horses. I think that not torturing them prioritizes over these people's jobs. Clearly they're not the best people in the world, I mean I personally would resort to prostitution before I would resort to this.
    But even so, what I'm implying isn't necessarily to shut down the actual industry, it's to change it and make it so that they are using a more humane approach. I can't imagine why that would be so hard for them.

    I have read quite a few of these, and I'm sorry if there have already been some others in the middle area that I skipped that said the same thing but here it goes.

    Horses are not humans...they are animals. I love y horse, but at least when there was slaughter good horses were bought, adn bad ones were put out of their misery because it was worth it to sell them while they still had weight to make the money from meat.

    I know it sounds heartless, but really would you rather have these horses starve/be abandoned or put out of their misery quickly. Slaughter is not a pretty thing, but neither is euthanasia. Depending on the age, weight, etc. of a horse they may scream and thrash when given an injection. At least slaughter gives an outlet for unwanted horses that can be strictly controlled by the government.

    In my area, if you go to an auction to buy a horse to save it you had better have your trailer locked. At the end of the sale horses will be loaded into random people's trailers or left tied in the auction house. These horses have no one to care for them and many of these people can't afford to take care of them. Most of the rescues are full as well. Yes, you may have gone to help one horse, but almost no one has an unlimited supply of money to care for all the horses you would like to.

    I woudl love to save all the horses I could, but all we can afford is one more. That is what we save and we pray for quick deaths instead of starvation or the long travel to Mexico for the rest.

    And many of those are from mexico, which is where the horses go now because we have our slaughter houses with much tighter regulations shut down

    Ive been to a horse slaughter plant personally, and it was completely disgusting. The people who worked there told me sometimes the horses don't even die fast, and they lie on the floor writhing for several minutes until they bleed out. Its so wrong, people should regulate horse BREEDING, instead of turning horse slaughter legal

    I don't think I could ever personally send a horse to slaughter; I would rather put him down and either have him rendered or buried in my own land.

    I do agree with you on the adoption fees needing to be drastically lowered in order to convince people to actually adopt! I was looking at a site not too long ago, and the horses being adopted out were more expensive than alot of normal sale horses, and THESE horses had a time limit on them before they were to go to a sale, in which they'd probably wind up back on the meat truck they were originally rescued from:roll: I couldn't afford to rescue a horse, with those kind of prices (we're talking 2-5 K!!!), not just a couple hundred, or a thousand dollar adoption fee!

    I also have to agree with slaughter houses being a necessary evil in some cases; the numbers of unwanted or abandoned horses is severely on the rise since the laws were enforced limiting the ability to send them to slaughter. I don't like the concept of some slaughter houses, and do wishe they were more regulated as far as how humanely treated the animals (not just horses) were handled and treated prior to being put down. It does need to be quick, and shouldn't be drawn out so the animal stands there suffering.

    See what Peta and 'slaughter-against-ers' do when they push their nose in everything?

    Slaughterhouses aren't put here in US for the heck of it. They are meant to be used. And they were relatively humane (90% of them at least). MUCH more than US's. So now that Peta and everyone else that thinks slaughter is wrong has made Amerian houses illegal, unwanted horses are all going to literally be tortured in Mexico because there are no slaughter houses in US that were once relatively humane.

    Thanks Peta and every other little girl that thinks our slaughter houses are horrible. Now you've just opened another can of worms.

    People are truly sick. You see these truly amazing animals, you know them and work with them and they do all they can for you, and yet you're still willing to settle for something like slaughter as a solution.
    No one with any brain whatsoever is saying to make slaughter illegal and let it sit that way. The idea is to find another solution, and if slaughter was not an option maybe we could find a better solution.
    If humans wouldn't be so irresponsible and selfish, this wouldn't even be an issue. We just sit on our asses saying oh, they're just animals, it doesn't matter if they suffer.
    It's sick. It's truly sick.
