    Horse slaughter is just pure sick! Id never ever ever send any animal there!
    The way they kill them is so unhumane! Its disgusting! It wouldnt make it half as bad if they did it kindly! And the condition the horses have to travel in!!

    I prefer animals over humans. Always have always will. However there is this thing called the Food Chain.

    Watch the Lion King?

    I wish I lived in the Sunshine and Rainbow Unicorn Dust world you live in.

    If you want to live in Sunshine Dust and Rainbow land maybe this isn't the right thread for you? There are many other categories on this forum that are much happier.

    And *sigh* there are other countries where horsemanship blows the US out of the water. ...oh why bother.

    *bangs face into wall*

    I am so sick of reading these slaughter threads and seeing immature and rude behavior. You are ALL disrespecting yourselves when you speak about such a touchy subject by mocking each other's morals. You can't assume because someone is anti-slaughter they have a wonderful perfect life. There is absolutely NO correlation between someone's view on horse slaughter and the quality of their own life, please stop making brash assumptions. People that are pro-slaughter on here, try not to let your emotions cloud your posts. You will make more of an impact, anti or pro, if you state clear facts and do not mock each other.

    Responding to the OP, there is absolutely no excuse for stealing a horse off the property to slaughter it. It has nothing to do with "OMG it's because we can't use slaughterhouses in America!" This is THEFT. There is no excuse at all for such behavior and it should be punished by law. And for reference, many people don't seem to understand that the slaughter houses are not looking for old sick horses. The kill buyers want the young, healthy horses. If you take a look at auction reports, you will see that most of the horses that go to slaughterhouses are young, untrained horses. A kill buyer does not want something that is underweight or diseased, and an older animal (regardless of species) has a lower quality of meat than a younger one. It is a breeding and training problem no matter how you cut it. Killing a young untrained horse is not "putting it out of its misery" in any way, the horse is killed because the breeder did not know what they were creating and could not train the horse, and thus decided to dump the horse at the auction. Re-opening slaughter houses in America would only get rid of these horses, it will not solve the problem. This is not a horse problem in the slightest, it is a human problem. We must educate ourselves on breeding and training, it is wrong to have horses die because of our own foolish mistakes.

    what I meant by the "It's because slaughterhouses are not opened in the US" is that if they were people would not be killing them themselves.They would give them to auction and collect their money because that is the whole purpose for horse slaughter.People try to say it's because there are unwanted horses, but when it comes down to it, those horses are being killed for pure profit and not because people care about them having a quick death. I know all of the facts you just stated and it makes me sick!

    funny thing you mention lions, considering they need meat to survive and humans don't.

    Ancient homo sapiens diet was mainly meat followed by leaves. We don't eat leaves now because don't have the digestive track to get as much nutrients out of leaves as we used to. We still have problems with lactose = lactose intolerance because eating lactose is a relatively new diet pattern. Fruits and vegetabless have always been in our diet same as nuts. Some people have even considered going to an all meat diet similar to some of our ancestors, that however has certain problems. Maybe with the new types of food meat could be cut out but I seriously doubt it because of our brain size/activity. As for the issue of slaughter its not nice It should be regulated but not banned imo. If it is regulated it can be easier to notice/report abusive/inhumane practices which is better than shipping it to who knows where, where it may not be regulated.

    so you're saying that meat eaters are healthier than vegetarians/vegans? And that isn't going to happen, so until it does happen I think it should be banned.Horse slaughter that is.

    No I wasnt saying either was healthier I was stating how we developed and our relation to meat. Everyone has their choice of what they can eat neither is right or wrong.
