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.
