Hello everyone, I had understood that, in England, eat horses is forbidden. Is it right ?
If it's right, how they had done ? Because in France, unfortunately, eating horses is possible today, and a lot of people fight against with petitions, but unfortunately, the government doesn't react...
Um, you've picked the wrong forum to be hatin' on people eating horses. Very few of us here have a problem with it, especially since many European horses are raised primarily as food animals, just like cattle.
I'd think being French, you wouldn't have a problem with it since you've been raised to think it's normal.
I won't feel upset, I'm very open minded, but, even if in France a lot of horses are raised for food, many people send their horses at the butchery because they are hurt, or something like that, and if people are fighting against something in France, it's most of the time to forbid this possibility, and if I asked this question, it was just for know know if it's the reality I've heard was right for the United Kingdom.
What people do with their horses is not decided by you. Yes it's very unfortunate for the horse sometimes. I personally would try to find an alternative other than slaughter for an injured horse, but not everyone thinks the same way. Some people make a living off horses and have no time to try to sale it when it is injured. It's a sad outcome for the horse, but it'll still serve a purpose to feed people. They don't go through anything worse than cows, pigs, chickens, and etc.
