A big AMEN, Kevin, Nrhareiner, Sunny, Macabre, and Always!
Y'know Alli, I used to be anti-equine slaughter, until I stopped reacting emotionally and actually did some research and fact finding.
My opinion came a full 180 degrees after I got away from all the propaganda, mud slinging, and downright lies from the anti groups.
You merely proved my point that you somehow think those of us not opposed to humane slaughter are subhuman, when nothing could be farther from the truth.
Instead of getting all your info from PETA, HSUS and YouTube, why don't you do some actual research? Read papers and findings by different people and organizations.
Even Temple Grandin, although opposed to horse slaughter, would rather see it done humanely here in the U.S. where it could be regulated, than have the horses sent out of the country where we have no control.
I'm for the humane slaughter of all animals, and that includes horses. Cows, pigs, chickens, etc. all have feelings, desires, and want to live their lives unharmed. They don't get that choice, but it's up to us to make certain that we give them as humane and swift a death as possible.
No one wants anyone to abuse animals, and those who work in slaughter houses are merely people trying to feed their families and keep a roof over their heads, not bloodthirsty, abusive monsters.
I'm really trying to argue like an adult here, but your ignorant comments that those of us not opposed to slaughter are evil and abusive, really makes me want to bitch slap you.
How many organizations have you joined? I'm a member of the Virginia Horse Council. How many hours, money, and items have you donated to shelters and rescues in your area? I don't have a lot to give, but I do what I can.
You can piss, moan, and throw a hissy fit all you want on an internet BB, but until you're actually out there in the trenches doing something for the welfare of all animals, you're nothing but a poseur.
