Slaughter's nasty. I think we all agree with that. |
Of course, you can't believe everything you hear. It's extremely rare for a horse to have its throat slit while it's alive, for example, although it has happened.
But there's no denying that the last few days of the horses lives are full of terror and pain. I hate that.
But I think it's preferable to having a horse starve to death in a field over a six-month period. Or be abused. Or ridden practically (or literally) to death.
In today's society, and until things change drastically (which of course they won't) slaughter is a neccessary evil.
They need to make slaughter more humane...I think alot of people will say that now and then 1 week after that say oh, slaughter needs to go completlely....I think though that It just needs to be more humane.
