    Pssst..........you "decided a horse's fate" the moment you chose to impose your will on them by riding and keeping one

    Why is it so much worse to slaughter a horse than a cow? I'm sure many of you like beef and therefore "like" slaughter as a result so why can't I like horse meat and "like" slaughter of them as well without being heartless? I don't like it any more than the next person to see anything at all suffer, from cockroaches, to horses, to humans, but I also don't see a painless death as a bad thing. What's so bad about it? You're dead, you can't think or suffer or anything! Not such a bad state, I think.
    Maybe it's just cultural differences or something. I often joke and say I like everything about horses, even their taste.

    Are you serious? Please tell me you don't seriously believe that no horses are starving in this country.

    No flaming here!

    I agree.

    I totally do not get why someone can think it is OK to slaughter a cow or pig or any other livestock but it is not OK to slaughter a horse.

    I also do not get why people feel it is their duty to impose their dietary ideas on others. Horse meat is meat..... and for the people that like that type of meat, it is their business. Not mine.

    If I could buy a horse steak I would be glad to try it.

    I take exception to cockroaches. Shudder. Nasty things! I do kill them quickly, but I'm hardly concerned with whether or not they suffer.

    Wasps and bell hornets also give me the heebie jeebies, and I'm particularly evil when I kill them. It does my heart good to see them DIE.

    Larger life forms, I agree wholeheartedly with you.

    I don't particularily like them and thankfully don't have to deal with them at home, but when I see a half squished cockroach on a sidewalk abroad I do feel bad for them.

    Fellow Canadian stepping in here. I'm going to encourage you to pick up a newspaper every once in a while. In fact, in your own province last year there was a case of 30 horses starving to death on a ranch.
    Horses are starving in Canada.
    Horses are starving in the USA.
    If there were poor people and horses in Antarctica, you could bet your last dollar they'd be starving there too.

    Welcome to the real world. Get rid of the kill pens? Nope, we need more, and we need them dispersed so that the haul is far shorter.

    This has got to be one of the most ignorant comments I have ever read in my life.

    Around in BC, I read the news ALL the time, and when was the last time I ever heard of horses actually starving to death, a loooong time ago. Horses are sent to slaughter everyday!
    I have read many articles of starving horses that were rescued and taken care of.

    Also, about the cow slaughter, I am against that as well, I am a vegetarian for that reason.

    That's because no one ever reports it, because it is SO common that its not news worthy. Its just a fact of life; horses starve (and slaughter could fix that0. People arent going to waste time/money reporting on something so everyday.
