Crimsonhorse is correct.

It's not illegal to have your own horses butchered for consumption. You just can't sell the meat. You can give it away if you want, just can't sell it to someone else.

Horse slaughter has not been banned in the U.S. The sale of horsemeat for human consumption in the U.S. has. These are two completely different things.

If you antis want people to take you seriously, you need to get your facts straight; not just spout propaganda.

As far as people's pets being stolen and butchered by thieves? Yes, that's horrendous, and needs to be stopped.

then why didn't the slaughter plants just stay opened? why didn't they just give the meat away if the population/neglect problem is so bad or is going to be very bad.

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.

Why would they give meat away if you can sell it for big bucks?

because if it is illegal to sell horse meat and if, like I said, horses are going to become overpopulated and there is going to be more neglect then people should just keep them open to take care of the excess horses, but no, they have to make profit on it or it isn't going to happen.

Horses already are overpopulated.
If slaughter plants would open, there would be a supply for the demand of horse meat that would also take care of the unwanted horses. I'm all for the re-opening of slaughter houses. There would be profit, yes. The reason they closed wasn't because there wasn't a demand (profit) for horses. So there would be profit, a solution for the over-abundance of the horses, and food.

Who would work in a slaughter house for free when they could have any other job and get paid? Business's HAVE to make a profit to stay open. There are huge running costs involved in a slaughter house - Machinery, facilities, staff training, meat storage, so on and so forth. They CAN'T run without money, it's as simple as that.

and to wild spot, that book isn't just about how the animals get treated.It is about what you're really eating.You actually think meat is healthy when it is the leading cause of heart disease? When you eat a burger you are taking in more protein than you are suppose to and that isn't good for you.If you read that book you will understand where I'm coming from.
When you show me studies, statistics, etc. then I may beleive that meat is the leading cause of heart diesease instead of genetics, unhealthy lifestyles and eating the WRONG kinds of fat. Just so you know, I don't eat takeaway processed meat. I eat the freshest meat I can buy, or a home-slaughtered cow when we can get it from my dad's boss.

ever heard of high cholesterol? How do you think people get it? No matter how fresh your meat is, it is still going to have saturated fat.

Heart Disease - Causes of Heart Disease

here's a great video that every meat eater/dairy consumer should watch and if you still eat meat or consume dairy after you watch this then you don't care about your health(just got to youtube to watch the rest):


and after this please stay on topic from now on.

everything in moderation and daily activity. There is good cholesterol and bad cholesterol. And a little bit of fat on your meat is actually a good thing.

Gonna kick off my shoes,And run in bare feet, Where the grass and the dirt and the gravel all meet...

es talking about unhealthy diets thought where there are fried grease loaded foods for every meal. Im pretty sure not everyone has

B&E for every breakfast
Cheeseburgers for every lunch
Fried foods for ever supper
Ice cream for every desert.

Believe it or not some people do eat vegetables,fruits,nuts,fibre and other foods with benefits
