The sad thing is it is true. Slaughter of any type is wrong (I'm a vegetarian so don't chastise me) but since it was made illegal in the United States, all the immigrants (especially in Florida) want horse meat because its part of their diet so horse meat is really expensive on the black market.

Its not Illegal to kill and eat a horse. Its illegal to sell it. Now stealing a horse and killing it is terribly wrong. I feel horrible for the owners in Florida. I can't imagine going to the pasture and finding my horse gone. :(

Rissa, I recommend slaughterhouse.You will see that when the horse slaughterhouses were open here in the US the USDA wasn't doing anything for them.They still aren't doing anything for the other animals that are slaughtered.Once you read that book you will change your views on all that stuff.

Let us touch the dying, the poor, the lonely and the unwanted according to the graces we have received and let us not be ashamed or slow to do the humble work.

where are you getting your facts from? If the police found out you were breeding horses and butchering them and eating them on your property that would be considered animal cruelty and you will get fined for it.

Ali, the only way I will change my mind is when I see you in the newspaper. In the new because you are giving shelter and food and medical care to every single suffering, used up, broken down, sick or unwanted horse.

Till then? We need them. Slaughterhouses. Sad as it is.

Let me know when I can see you on CNN.

I bought a pig, a little piglet. Raised it on my friends farm. When he was real bi I butchered him and we ate like kings.

In the grand scheme of things how is that any different? People have to eat. Circle of life, food chain. All that stuff.

If this is the case, they should start doing it with humans too, because there are so many, actually too many, humans inhabiting this earth. 'We must start slaughtering our own kind, it is the right thing to do'....

That won't be right at all. It is sick, just like horse slaughtering. People don't realise how disgusting they can be....the methods they use to kill them. This goes for all other animals too, like chickens and cows. They must at least be killed humanely if we are to eat them.

This is my opinion. I don't know about you all....if horse slaughtering HAS to go on, at least do it humanely, and make sure they have proper care before they are terminated.........

I hate this violent world we are in today....something has to give. = (

Yeah, they probably should put some kind of population control on all species.


I loooooove how you flip around what I have said and male it look like I spoke about people. Such a typical approach.

Whether we like it or not there is a demand for horse meat it is no different than any other meat on the market here or elsewhere.
People also eat alligator, snake, snails, bugs, monkey brains and the list goes on and on it is absolutely no different with horses. It's all in the culture and mindset you grew up with.
Slaughter houses are a necessary evil for those of us who love horses and they don't want and can't butcher sickly horses for human consumption no more than they can butcher sick cows or chickens. They have to have healthy disease free stock.
You can also bet your bootstraps if I had a horse that was an absolute danger to anyone it came in contact with and was healthy if there was a slaughterhouse nearby I would be telling them take the dang thing before it kills someone.

Now the idea of population control? As much as I would love to see an end to stupid people breeding it's not going to happen and it is beyond wrong to want the government or any other type of entity to control the worlds population by extermination that is what Hitler and every other psycho nut job in power believed in. Create the perfect race and everyone else must die. Population control would start with those that are elderly, sick or crippled..how many of our grandparents and even parents would fall into that category? How many kids do you know that were in a wheelchair that might be a victim or someone who is blind or deaf? For years baby girls were killed in other countries because they were not boys, it very well may still go on because higher value was put on sons than it was on daughters.

I do believe the original post was regarding those in FL that were stealing and killing horses illegally, as far as that goes a horse thief in my opinion should be hung just like in the old days. Unfortunately we are a more "liberated" country and hangings are not allowed because it's inhumane...rolls eyes.
Hang em I bet their buddies would think twice about stealing someone's horse or anything else for that matter.

LOL.

Well, in a way China is helping to reduce numbers in human population, but then again they are the one's eating all these weird animals like cats and snakes. You just never win, do you?
