Exclamation Ban Horse Slaughter in US

I didn't know what forum to post this in so I'll do it here (:

Hi, I'm trying to help out and pass around the petition to ban horse slaughter in the US. It breaks my heart I can't help because I'm from Canada, so I'm trying to do my part in this. Only Americans can sign the petition however and we need over 10,000 signatures in less than 10 days in order to get it to the White House. If you have American friends.. maybe you can post the link to your page or anything and help ban horse slaughter in the United States? Let's pass along the message and save our equine friends <3

If you're Canadian, why aren't you trying to have it banned in your own country, instead of sticking your nose into the US's business?

For the record, the majority of people on this BB have no problem with reopening the plants here in the US.

Why do you think horse slaughter is bad?

BTW - all horse slaughter threads go in the horse protection forum.

OP, I think that you will find that most horsemen and a good portion of the membership here is pro-slaughter.

So you want to ban horse slaughter in the US so that more horses will be shipped to Canada for slaughter? Do you own a Canadian slaughter house or something and are worried your flow is going to slow down? That is the only reason I could see a Canadian caring more about slaughter houses in the US than in their own country.

I can't keep track of whether it is legal or not in the US! Well, you are welcome to continue sending your delicious horses up here to the great white north. And Kevin, you will never make me give up my toque. It is my right and duty as a Canadian to wear one!

BACK ON TOPIC away from aye, eh and igloos.. and popcorn... yum.

No.
What are you going to do with the horses that are sent to slaughter? Hope you have a nice big field and pennies to feed them, because I don't.

Can we not condense all these threads about the new thingy that was removed by Obama to make horse slaughter legal again? That way people don't have to repeat themselves... just a thought ;D

It's a matter of supporting the lesser of two evils. None here WANT horses slaughtered, but without the availability of humane slaughter, the results are much worse. HOrse are left to starve slowly to death, or are sold to meat men who must then put them on overcrowded rigs to haul them to either Canada or Mexico, where slaughter is legal. The trip can be horrible for the animal, just horrible, and who can say how humanely they will be processed in Mexico? No insult to Mexico, but I am doubtful that the processing plants are much overseen by the govenrment.
