|I can tell you right now. They don't have the answer to that. Some Anit-Slaughter activists can't see past the word "Slaughter" and they automatically think its horrible and wrong.|
Eating animals for food is not horrible and wrong, torturing the animals instead of killing them kindly, humanely IS wrong. It is also inhumane to eat meat that has knowingly been contaminated with chemicals (I mentioned this in prior arguments, but dewormers, vaccines, etc.) that can put humans at risk. (even if the meat is being fed to animals, like dogs.. there is still a risk for humans for disease, by living in close quarters with a diseased animal)
So I would appreciate it if you didn't automatically jump to answer for me, there are actually plenty of thoughtful (if optimistic) ways that can be implemented to reduce the horse population. Actually, the horse industry will more or less be forced to comply with many of them since they no longer have a choice.
I will have an answer for you, Bubba13, but I can't type it up right now. (too much time/effort) I'll try to respond to you tonight or tomorrow night, as I'm off to train my filly. =]
