    which is why all of this just needs to end.

    Do you have any solutions to over population of livestock besides not breeding to total government control? And government control has worked wonders for the Mustangs.

    I will never consider horses livestock.I consider them pets and companion animals, but I don't want to get into that argument right now.I think that if it can't be done right and humanely it needs to stop.

    I find it pretty **** convenient that it's always people like you screaming it has to stop, and yet when it boils down to it, you always have some lame excuse on why you don't have an answer on HOW to stop it.

    Far to many people in this world seem to think they know the answer, but none of them know what the question it.

    That's great that YOU consider them pets and companions. I'm sure that will make a whole heap of difference to your neighbours horses who are starving to death over a period of months instead of at least dying somewhat quickly because he can make a buck off them selling them for slaughter.

    You think slaughter is inhumane? Take a look around at your world of rainbows and lollipops and take a good hard think on what's going to happen when deadbeat owners can't make a buck selling the carcasses of their unwanted animals anymore. You think they're going to pay for humane euthanasia? Pay for food? Give even the slightest ****?

    Ending slaughter is condemning thousands of horses every single year to a fate worse then death. You cannot take away the ONLY form of population control we have unless you're willing to implement a new one. It's called common sense.

    And there's always Mexico! You think Mexico will ever pass a slaughter ban? You think horses are treated bad in Canada? Go watch a few PETA videos because as much as I hate that organization, they give a REAL good insight on what occurs in foreign countries with either no animal welfare policies or a tendency to turn a blind eye regardless.

    Well, if we are going to put them on a level with cats and dogs as pets, we should euthanize them in mass numbers to help(not very effectively) control the populations like dogs and cats, and discard all that good meat. That meat could be used though not if it is chemically contaminated. Use the meat for dog food. Use the meat to feed the carnivores at zoos and wildlife rescues. It doesn't have to be for human consumption. I for one would like to be able to afford a dog food with higher "real meat" content. If horse meat brought prices down and quality up on my dog food, you BET I'd be buying.

    I really wish eating horse was not taboo in this country. Horses are livestock. Some are worthy of "pet" status, but definitely not all.

    It seems this thread is headed down hill and nothing factual is being discussed. There have been several reports concerning rudeness so we've decided to close it before it degrades further.
