Agreed with many others- I don't see how killing horses is any different than killing cattle, swine, chickens, dogs, and cats (among other species). It's not pleasant, but so long as people continue to eat meat, so does this. As long as death is quick and the transport there is as low stress as possible, it's better than them starving to death.
I will say that while not all of their shots looked as clean as I would have liked, but if those 6 examples are the worst cherry picked over two days, they must generally do a decent job. How many of you have seen a horse euthanized by a vet? How many of you have done it? Not much different in terms of tremors, kicking, etc. Horses don't die gently.
