Absolutly Horrid

UPDATE: Missouri senators approve of horse slaughterhouses - Columbia Missourian After just shutting down US slaughterhouses in 2007 they are now legalized again in Montana just 3 years later.

I am sorry it upsets you, but I do not find it horrid at all. From your screen name, I am not surprised that you would object, but remember that just as you have the right to choose that belief system, others have the right to choose not to object to slaughter, of horses or any other animal.

I think shutting them down was a mistake. They need to bring them back.

You know how PETA is all against the Canadian seal hunt? Well. If we didn't do something, we would be overrun with seals. And I'm pretty sure that slaughter houses are more humane than the seal hunt. I'm not pro- seal hunt but if we don't want to be out-populated by them, something needs to be done. It's kind of the same with horse slaughter.. I wish it wasn't necesary, but unfortunately it is.

A change will only come, when we stand together as one- Michael Jackson, We Are The World. Michael will forever be in our hearts. Forever the King.

If you are looking for an audience for PETA and HSUS propaganda you are on the wrong forum. To continue the present course in outlawing horse slaughter is cutting off your nose to spite your face. Horse plants can bring jobs and money to communities that desperately need it and help bolster the horse market as well.

PETA consists mostly of extremist activists who will tell you anything to try and prove a point. And most of the time, what they're saying is so far from the truth.

I'm all for horse slaughter.... as long as it's in a facility designed for a horse's physiology - taking into consideration a very long, movable neck.

I agree there is a need because there is more horses than homes. It's still sad that we need slaughter houses. : (
